Pavement Releases Live Albums Via Bandcamp


A pair of Pavement live albums recorded during the band’s 1997 tour of Europe are now available digitally. The Matador Records LPs Live Europaturnén MCMXCVII (orange) and Live Europaturnén MCMXCVII (purple) can be streamed and downloaded via Pavement’s Bandcamp page.

Live Europaturnén MCMXCVII with an orange cover was originally released as a vinyl exclusive on Record Store Day 2009, while Live Europaturnén MCMXCVII with a purple cover came a bonus LP exclusively on vinyl for “Buy Early Get Now” orders of Brighten The Corners: Nicene Creedence Ed. in 2008.


The purple-covered live album was mostly recorded during Pavement’s April 11, 1997 concert in London, while the orange-covered live album features the band’s August 15, 1997 concert in Cologne as per Brooklyn Vegan.

Pavement’s 2020 reunion at Primavera Sound has been postponed to 2021 due to the pandemic.
