Live at Reading is a live album by the American grunge band Nirvana, released in 2009. It contains the recording of their headlining performance at the Reading Festival in England on August 30, 1992. The concert was one of the most memorable and legendary shows in the band’s history, as they played in front of a massive crowd of over 50,000 people, despite rumors of their possible breakup and Kurt Cobain’s drug problems. The band delivered a powerful and energetic set that spanned their entire career, from their debut album Bleach to their latest single at the time, Lithium. They also played some rare songs, such as Spank Thru, D-7 and The Money Will Roll Right In, and covered some of their influences, such as The Wipers, Fang and Shocking Blue. The performance was also marked by Cobain’s humorous antics, such as being wheeled on stage in a hospital gown and a wig, mocking Guns N’ Roses and playing a few bars of Boston’s More Than a Feeling before launching into Smells Like Teen Spirit. The album was highly praised by critics and fans alike, who considered it one of the best live albums ever made and a testament to Nirvana’s legacy as one of the most influential rock bands of all time.

Live at Reading is considered to be one of the best live albums of all time. It captures Nirvana at their peak and it is a valuable document of one of the most important bands of the 1990s. The album is worth checking out for fans of Nirvana and alternative rock.
