Nearly 14 years to the day of the filming of Nirvana’s landmark “MTV Unplugged” performance, that raw, revealing and emotionally gripping acoustic concert previously seen only on television will be available for the first time on DVD.
UNPLUGGED IN NEW YORK , which is available now, will feature the complete, unedited 66-minute concert including “Something In The Way” and “Oh Me” not aired during the original 44-minute broadcast. UNPLUGGED IN NEW YORK also includes five previously unreleased rehearsal performances and MTV News interviews with the band and audience members.
Filmed November 18, 1993 at Sony Music Studios, the show first aired on MTV on December 14, 1993; just four months before the untimely passing of Kurt Cobain.
UNPLUGGED IN NEW YORK DVD is now presented in both Dolby Stereo and 5.1 Surround Sound and includes both the shorter original broadcast version, and Nirvana’s entire unedited performance. When released on CD in November 1994, MTV Unplugged In New York debuted #1, won the Grammy for Best Alternative Music Album in 1996 and was quickly certified five times platinum.
