NIRVANA's 30 Anniversary Edition Of In Utero Features Two Unreleased Live Albums

The reissues will include 53 previously unreleased tracks in total.


When a band like Nirvana comes up in a conversation, almost instantly everyone around thinks of Nevermind. However, not everyone knows that In Utero was the album that went on to mark Nirvana’s first No. 1 debut on the Billboard 200 and has since been certified six times platinum in the United States.

With Nevermind having sold some 30 million copies and causing a seismic pop cultural shift, In Utero was essentially the first record Nirvana would make with any expectations from the public. Originally released September 21, 1993, In Utero's unadorned sonic rawness was received by critics and fans with equal measures of shock and elation, as Steve Albini's recording laid bare every primal nuance of the most confrontational yet vulnerable material Kurt CobainKrist Novoselic, and Dave Grohl would ever record. 

If that got you nostalgic, you are in for a thrill. Geffen/UMe is commemorating the 30th anniversary of In Utero with several multi-format reissues, arriving on October 27, 2023. Configurations include a limited-edition 8LP Super Deluxe box set, 5CD Super Deluxe box set, 1 LP + 10” edition, 2CD Deluxe edition, and a Digital Super Deluxe edition.

The three Super Deluxe Edition releases comprise a total of 72 tracks with 53 previously unreleased tracks. Among the unreleased material are two full In Utero-era concerts, namely Live In Los Angeles (1993) and the band's final Seattle performance, Live In Seattle (1994), are included in addition to six bonus live tracks from Rome, Springfield, and New York.

The physical Super Deluxe Edition box sets also boast the following:

  • A removable front-cover acrylic panel with the album's iconic Angel
  • A 48-page hardcover book with unreleased photos
  • A 20-page newly designed fanzine
  • A Los Angeles tour poster lithograph by hot rod artist Coop
