Notes
  • Because Nick Cave was reading poetry in the venue below this one, Nirvana had to wait onstage so they would not interfere with his performance. After being asked twice to not play yet, Kurt started playing "Polly."
  • The band was very drunk by the end of the show.
  • Sound problems, combined the band's drunkenness, resulted in false starts of "Sliver" and "In Bloom."
  • Kurt threw his guitar down, then started destroying the set after just one verse of "Negative Creep." After extensive destruction, Kurt got into a fight with people from the venue, but the fight was promptly broken up.

Notes
  • Nirvana had destroyed most of their equipment at the previous show, so they borrowed opening band Urge Overkill's equipment for this show.
  • Citing the recent Guns N' Roses riot in St. Louis, Kurt decided he wanted to start a riot. About 20 minutes into the set, Kurt invited the entire club onstage, since so many kids were stage diving. The cops were called, and Krist talked the audience back to their seats. No one was arrested. The club stayed open late so Nirvana could finish their set.

Notes

  • Before going onstage, Krist covered his T-shirt with stickers from Metal Hammer (AC/DC, Ozzy Osbourne, Alice Cooper, and Extreme). During the show, he sweat off most of them and placed the rest on fans' foreheads, like a headbanger priest giving communion.
  • At the end of the show, Kurt jumped into the audience. When the crowd passed him back onstage, he reported, "They were reaching into my pockets, trying to grab money and shit."
