Dave Markey, who was close to the band, posted the footage he shot in December 1993 at Los Angeles' Great Western Forum, on YouTube.

He recalled: "I stood on Kurt's side of the stage at my hometown's Los Angeles Forum and captured the last set I would see of this band. A band that I had worked with, toured with; people that I would call my friends. A band that both the world and myself really loved (can't really say this has happened since). Within just a few short months it would sadly all be over.

"I'm glad to have documented this show, as well as their pre-fame fun in 1991."

The band - whose members included Foo Fighters star Dave Grohl - split in April 1994 after frontman Kurt Cobain committed suicide aged just 27.

Nirvana are to be inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame on April 10, 2014.

The city of Hoquiam in Washington has declared April 10 "Nirvana Day". Kurt Cobain once lived in Hoquiam, and the town is only four miles from Cobain's hometown of Aberdeen.
