We go behind the scenes of a history-making concert: Nirvana live in Auckland, 1992.

Bandmates Kurt Cobain, Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic played at the Logan Campbell Centre on Sunday 9 February, 1992, where they were supported by local noisemakers The 3Ds and Second Child.

Music reporter Sam Wicks talks to some of the characters who witnessed Nirvana’s one and only New Zealand show, including Doug Hood, Mikey Havoc, Chris Van der Geer, and David Saunders.
