10 Iconic Final Concerts Plus The End Of Beatlemania
Final Performance: March 1, 1994
Another legendary rock musician that played his final gig in Germany was Kurt Cobain. Nirvana gave its final performance at Munich's Terminal 1, the city's former international airport, turned music venue. Cobain wasn't feeling well during this European tour, and his voice was ragged that night. The band didn't play "Smells Like Teen Spirit," but ended with "Heart Shaped Box" instead.
Three days later in Rome, Cobain attempted suicide by ingesting a combination of Rohypnol and alcohol. After an intervention, he agreed to go to rehab, but left the facility after only a week and flew back to Seattle. A month later, he succeeded in killing himself, ending Nirvana for good.
6. Tupac Shakur
Final Performance: July 4, 1996
Holograms aside, the real Tupac's final performance was given at the House of Blues Los Angeles on--what else?--Independence Day, 1996. The 24-song set showcased 'Pac's versatility, switching effortlessly from plaintive R&B to Thug-Life bangers. It also featured plethora of West-Coast guest stars, including K-Ci and JoJo, Outlawz, tha Dawg Pound, Nate Dogg and Snoop
Comfortably ensconced in his LA stronghold, Tupac was at the very height of his powers during the show. Since virtually nothing that Tupac did in life has avoided having a barcode slapped on it by this point, fans can enjoy the rap icon's final performance on DVD and Blu-ray as Tupac: Live at the House of Blues.
