Nirvana - Nirvana's 1992 Reading Show To Be Screened At Festival

Nirvana's legendary 1992 set at Britain's Reading Festival will be played to revellers at this year's (11) event.
What was to become the Smells Like Teen Spirit rockers' final British performance at the music event has often been hailed as one of their best, with late frontman Kurt Cobain arriving onstage in a wheelchair and sporting a hospital robe - poking fun at reports he had overdosed.
Now music fans at the 2011 event, which has now been split between English cities Reading and Leeds, will get to relive the moment when one of the festival's most show-stopping moments is screened.
The concert film will hit the big screen inside the Alternative Stage tent on the opening night of Leeds and on the closing evening of Reading in August (11).
Booker Tania Harrison says, "It was such a legendary performance that so many people haven't seen - so we had to do it. It was one of those seminal moments that changed everything, which is what Reading's all about."
Cobain committed suicide in 1994.
