UNPLUGGED: Nirvana Reimagined

28 September 2018 His Majesty's Theatre Buy tickets

Presented by Perth Symphony Orchestra & Justin Burford

Kurt Cobain: spokesman for a generation. Nirvana: flagship band of Generation X. No one flinches when you say it. This isn’t just Nirvana with strings.

Prepare to witness a fully-fledged orchestra in bloom, transformed for one night only into a raging rock beast. Using Nirvana’s legendary MTV Unplugged in New York as inspiration, which took place just five-months before Kurt’s untimely death in 1994, PSO will take songs from the concert and from throughout Nirvana’s discography and blow them up.

Imagine About a Girl and Where Did You Sleep Last Night backed by a wall of sound big enough to match the angst in the songs. Picture Smells Like Teen Spirit and Lithium pushing the year punk broke, 1991, into the stratosphere. 

The concert features Perth Symphony Orchestra and Justin Burford, conducted by Jessica Gethin.
