THE BUTTHOLE SURFERS AND CHOKEBORE. AT THE SEATTLE CENTER ARENA. THIS WOULD BE ONE OF NIRVANA'S LAST SHOWS.ON APRIL 5, 1994, BY A FEW MONTHS. THIS IS A RARE PIECE OF NIRVANA MEMORABILIA. The shows [on January 7 and 8, 1994] were the pinnacle of punk perfection. They appeared as a fire raging out of control before consuming itself. Kurt was animated and his voice was perfect. But the lyrics from the In Utero songs gave away much of what he was feeling. Teenage angst has paid off well now Im bored and old, Out of the ground, into the sky, out of the sky, into the dirt, On the bright side is suicide. Kurts drug addiction, his inability to deal with fame and the carrying of the mantle as spokesman for Generation X was becoming unbearable. Listening to this set, there is nothing to suggest that this would be the last time the trio of Kurt Cobain, Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl would perform as Nirvana on American soil. Its a rip-roaring set with a passionate Cobain apparently in command. Whatever demons that had been haunting him were cast aside for the night and Nirvana sounded like they could take on the world.
After all, their third album, In Utero, debuted at No. 1 in September 1993 and the group played practically the entire album (with the exception of Very Ape and Tourettes). In December 1993, their MTV Unplugged show was aired to an admiring audience; Cobain was working on new material and the group even managed to lay down tracks for 11 songs. From whats been written, what seemed to occupy Cobains mind in January 1994 was his new home in Seattle rather than any upcoming gig. After the Seattle gig, Nirvana embarked on a European tour, with stops in France, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Slovenia, Spain and Switzerland.
In Germany, Cobain was diagnosed with bronchitis and severe laryngitis and the group had to cancel one of the shows. On March 4, Cobain was found unconscious in his hotel room in Rome and was rushed to hospital. And for those who attended the January 7th and 8th shows, well, thats the stuff legends are made.
