While on the road to support Nevermind, Nirvana performed at Seattle's famed Paramount Theatre before a homecoming crowd. Launching a nineteen song set with a brilliant cover of The Vaselines' "Jesus Doesn't Want Me For A Sunbeam," the band cranked out soon-to-be iconic songs like "Smells Like Teen Spirit," "Lithium" and "Breed." Soon following, everyone in the world knew who Nirvana was and the musical landscape has never been the same. The Paramount concert -- the only show ever shot of the band on 16mm film -- has been transferred to an incredibly detailed 1080p high definition picture. Mixed in 5.1 surround sound from the original multi-tracks, Nirvana: Live at the Paramount will be available on DVD at all ZIA stores on September 27th!

Released in September 1991, Nirvana's sophomore album and major label debut elevated Kurt Cobain, Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl from a critically acclaimed Aberdeen, Washington, cult band to generational spokesmen who'd unwittingly created a cultural shift and musical touchstone. Rising to No. 1 the world over by year's end and ultimately selling over 20 millions copies worldwide, Nevermind would come to be much more than one of the most successful and influential albums of its or any era. As the album that returned unaffected rock 'n' roll integrity and passion to the top of the charts, Nevermind would prove a singular inspiration to fans and musicians alike over the last two decades - and will undoubtedly do so for generations to come.
Now on the occasion of Nevermind's 20th Anniversary, come the release of a full spectrum re-release worth of such a pivotal classic. With configurations ranging from a 2-CD Deluxe Edition and a standard digital/CD remaster of the original album, the 20th anniversary reissue of Nevermind makes the most of the occasion, unearthing literally dozens of previously unreleased recordings, obscure B-sides, alternate mixes, radio sessions, studio rarities and live recordings, including a 1991 Halloween concert at Seattle's Paramount Theatre in its entirety.
The Nirvana Nevermind 20th Anniversary reissue is also available as a 2-CD Deluxe Edition featuring the remastered album and B-sides, the Smart Studio sessions, boombox rehearsal and BBC sessions, a 4-LP, 180-gram heavyweight vinyl edition featuring the same 40 tracks as the Deluxe Edition, a remastered CD of the original album, and digital versions of the standard and deluxe editions. The Paramount concert, transferred from 16mm film and multi-track audio, is the only known Nirvana concert shot to film!
