When Grunge Ruled The World: Nirvana Tribute Takes Over The Sin City Theatres Rock N Roll Compendium

When Grunge Ruled The World: Nirvana Tribute Takes Over The Sin City Theatres Rock N Roll Compendium

Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) August 19, 2014

The Sin City Theatres Rock N Roll Compendium invites you to travel back to a time when Grunge ruled the world and a three piece band from Seattle changed the course of music history forever. Compendium of Nirvana audiences will have a chance to experience the bands most memorable moments, in an action packed show, celebrating the career and legacy of legendary Alternative band, Nirvana, as well as the antics of their late front man, Kurt Cobain, who was considered by many to be the voice of Generation X.

In September 1991, Nirvanas first major label album, Nevermind, was released and the bands dark and brooding Smells Like Teen Spirit video was in heavy rotation on MTV. To the surprise of many, Nirvana was adored by critics and fans alike. In January 1992, Nirvana ousted Michael Jackson from the Number One spot on the Billboard Charts, going on to sell over 30 million copies of this album worldwide, far surpassing everyones expectations. Seattle Grunge/Alternative music was now officially mainstream, with Nirvana leading the pack of torn, acid washed denim and flannel shirt wearing fans around the globe.

Compendium of Nirvana features a live show, by renowned tribute band Smells Like Nirvana, that takes fans on a musical journey through the bands illustrious, albeit brief career, with popular songs like Come As you Are, Lithium, In Bloom, Heart Shaped Box, All Apologies and of course 90s slacker anthem, Smells Like Teen Spirit. Expect to see rare, historical Nirvana videos and also relive special events that captured the worlds attention: Cobains infamous stage entrance for the bands final UK concert at the 1992 Reading Festival; Nirvanas notorious 1992 MTV Video Music Awards appearance; Nirvanas 1993 haunting funeral-like MTV Unplugged in New York performance.


Along with John Padon, the producer of Sin City Comedy & Burlesque, Pete Housley takes the reigns as co-producer and had this to say about Compendium, "The concept of our Rock N Roll Compendium summer series has been to focus on bands with a rich discography. We've jumped some decades, starting with our tribute to KISS, then U2 and now Nirvana. The response from fans for the first two runs has been phenomenal. Given this years 20th anniversary of the great Kurt Cobains passing and Nirvana's 2014 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the buzz is extremely high on the forthcoming Compendium of Nirvana. We cannot say enough about how true to the story and the music of Nirvana this show will be."

Rock N Roll Compendium: a tribute to the Myth & Music of Nirvana at The Sin City Theatre, located inside Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino on the Mezz, begins a limited run on Thursday, August 21st through Saturday, September 27th. Additional tributes and band residencies soon to be announced.
