While Nirvana‘s Unplugged concert from November 18, 1993 is often believed to be the band’s final show, the legendary group played another month of American concert dates, and performed in Europe in February the following year. Nirvana’s last concert actually took place on March 1st, 1994 in Munich, Germany, at Terminal Einz, an airplane hanger that fit 3,050 people. The band had to deal with technical issues, restarting “Come as You Are” over again when the power went out, and Cobain was experiencing severe vocal issues.
While cameras filmed the first few songs, but up until now no other audio has been heard from that last show. However audio of “Heart-Shaped Box,” the final song of the night, has been released which was the final song Kurt Cobain ever played in public. Curbain struggled through his performance, due to bronchitis and laryngitis issues. The last words uttered onstage were a simple, ‘Well, thank you.’ Kurt’s struggles with addiction and ongoing health problems led to doctor’s orders to cancel the remainder of the band’s European tour, and on April 5 Kurt Cobain’s body was discovered at his home in Lake Washington Boulevard, having died by suicide three days before at the age of 27.
