30 Years of MTV Unplugged with The Grunge Show

Fri 20 Sep

Remember when grunge went acoustic? 

As well as being a critical and commercial success, the MTV Unplugged series was a cultural touchstone and institution that climactically intersected the early 90s grunge hype. This culminated in some of the most powerful, memorable and haunting performances ever captured on camera, most notably by Nirvana, Alice In Chains, Pearl Jam and Stone Temple Pilots.

With Nirvana’s grammy-award winning MTV Unplugged In New York recently celebrating its 30th anniversary, The Grunge Show have curated an incredible sit-down tribute to the seminal unplugged broadcasts. There will be acoustic guitars, cardigans, candles, flowers, mood lighting, surprises and most importantly, the legendary tunes. These will include fan favourites such as The Man Who Stole The World, Come As You Are, Nutshell, Down In A Hole, Black, Creep and many more played across two sprawling one-hour sets. 

The Grunge Show is not only a tribute, but an experience. Through audio visual storytelling, interviews, behind the scenes footage and TV clips from the era, you will leave the show with an appreciation of the rich history and immortalized songs. With an unparalleled attention to respecting the details of the musical storytelling and featuring some of Sydney’s best working musicians such as Ben Leek (Vocals), Paul Bardetta (Bass), Tony Ward (Drums), Jacob Ingram (Guitar/Vocals) and Ryan Sorensen (Guitar/Vocals), this is a show you will not want to miss! 

We’re committed to delivering safe & enjoyable performing arts experiences.
