Nirvana performed their last show on March 1, 1994 at Terminal 1 in Munich, Germany. Here’s a screenshot of Cobain on-stage that night.
The shirt Cobain was wearing that night was a Sonic Youth 1992/93 Astronaut Japan T-Shirt that he also wore in October of 1993 in Lawrence, Kansas when he met one of his idols writer William S. Burroughs.
The legendary T-Shirt was put up for auction in 2014. It was obtained by Michael Dever, a promoter’s representative in Germany who says that Cobain had left the T-Shirt in the dressing room at Terminal 1 after the show. After it was brought to his production office, Dever tried to return the shirt, but Cobain had no interest in taking it back.
The final price the shirt fetched at auction was a cool $25,000.
For those that can’t afford a $25k vintage Sonic Youth tee, you can get a cheap knock-off of this shirt on ebay for about $20. For more about Nirvana’s last concert, click the link below…
