(PR) Sirius XM Radio announced that Nirvana members Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl, as well as Butch Vig, who produced Nevermind, sit down for a rare Q&A session, hosted by Jon Stewart, with a select group of SiriusXM listeners at the SiriusXM studios in New York City.

"SiriusXM's Town Hall with Nirvana," the two-hour broadcast event, will air live on Lithium, channel 34, on Saturday, September 24 at 8:00 pm ET, the 20th anniversary of the release of Nevermind. The live special is part of SiriusXM's "Town Hall" series, an intimate gathering with an iconic musician and a studio audience of SiriusXM listeners.

Hosted by Jon Stewart, the "SiriusXM Town Hall with Nirvana" will feature Novoselic, who founded Nirvana with Kurt Cobain; Grohl, whose first full length recording with the band was the classic Nevermind; and producer Vig answering questions from the live studio audience as well as questions from listeners calling in from around the country.

"This is our way to honor the artists who, with the release of Nevermind, influenced a generation and marked a change in the course of music history no generation will ever forget," said Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer, SiriusXM. "Our 'Town Hall' series offers our listeners a rare chance to meet some of the most important and influential artists of our time."

"SiriusXM's Town Hall with Nirvana" is part of Nevermind Radio, an all-Nirvana limited-run channel on SiriusXM. Nevermind Radio will launch on Friday, September 23 at 3:00 pm ET on channel 34 and will feature the music of Nirvana's entire career, including their three classic albums, B-sides, rarities and live performances. The channel will also feature celebrities in various fields sharing their thoughts on Nirvana and their influence. Nevermind Radio will air through Wednesday, September 28 at 12:00 am ET.

Nevermind's 20th anniversary will be marked by Universal Music Enterprises' September 27 full spectrum re-release. With configurations ranging from a 4-CD/1-DVD Super Deluxe Edition to a 4-LP, 180-gram heavyweight vinyl edition to a standard digital/CD remaster of the original album, the 20th anniversary reissue of Nevermind unearths dozens of previously unreleased recordings, obscure B-sides, alternate mixes, radio sessions, studio rarities and live recordings, including a 1991 Halloween concert at Seattle's Paramount Theatre in its entirety (the only known Nirvana concert shot to film).
