On This Day in 1994 - Nirvana Played Their Final Concert Ever at the Terminal Einz in Munich, Germany[WATCH]

On March 1, 1994, Kurt Cobain, Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear played live with Nirvana for the very last time.  



The 23 song show took place at Terminal Einz, a 3,050-capacity hanger in Munich, Germany. 



Midway through the set - there was an issue with the venues electricity - prompting bassist Krist Novoselic to comment:


“We’re not playing the Munich Enormodome tonight. Because our careers are on the wane. We’re on the way out. Grunge is dead. Nirvana’s over… Our next record’s going to be a hip-hop record!” 


Throughout the show - it was clear all was not well with Kurt -he was pushing through from recent bronchitis and laryngitis issues ...  The last words uttered onstage were a simple, ?‘Well, thank you.’ 




Following the show - under doctor’s orders - the band canceled the remainder of their   European tour. Three days later in Rome while Cobain slipped into an overdose-induced coma.  A little over a month later - on  April 5 - his body was discovered at his home in Lake Washington Boulevard, where he died by suicide at the age of 27.
