    This Friday (September 24th) marks the 30th anniversary of Nirvana’s Nevermind. To commemorate the occasion, Geffen/UMe have announced a deluxe reissue featuring a newly remastered version of the seminal album as well as a bevy of unreleased live recordings.

    Set for release on November 12th, the Nevermind 30th Anniversary Edition will be available in a variety of configurations, including as a 2xCD set, 1xLP set, and deluxe digital download. For all formats, Nevermind was remastered from its original half-inch stereo analog tapes to high-resolution 192kHz 24-bit.

    The star of the show, however, is a 5xCD or 8xLP super deluxe edition, which boasts four complete live shows documenting the band’s historic ascension on the concert stage: Live in Amsterdam, Netherlands (November 25th, 1991; Live in Del Mar, California (December 28th, 1991); Live in Melbourne, Australia for triple j (February 1st, 1992; and Live in Tokyo, Japan (February 19th, 1992).

    Both super deluxe sets also contain a Blu-ray of Nirvana’s Netherlands concert featuring newly remastered audio and video in HD, while the vinyl edition adds a bonus 7-inch featuring “Endless, Nameless” as the A-side and “Even In His Youth”/”Aneurysm” as the B-side.

    Pre-orders are now ongoing through the band’s website. It’s worth noting that the 30th anniversary edition of Nevermind includes the album’s original artwork undoctored, which suggests the surviving members of Nirvana aren’t all too worried about Spencer Elden’s child exploitation lawsuit.

    See the artwork and tracklist below, followed by videos of Slipknot’s Corey Taylor and Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider speaking with Consequence about the lasting impact of Nevermind on its 30th anniversary.
