Rock Band: Nirvana's 'Nevermind,' real venues and a possible release date [Update]

Jared Rea

Should you find yourself with the September issue of GamePro magazine, you'll be treated to a three page feature on Harmonix's upcoming musical juggernaut, Rock Band. At E3, downloadable albums made a huge impact with legendary rockers The Who and Metallica. Joining this prestigious bunch is Nirvana with their infamous masterwork "Nevermind," which will be made available sometime after release. According to GamePro, we should also expect to see a new, full album to download every week.

With such incredible albums, you'll need a venue in which to rock. Ditching the fictional locales of their previous work, Rock Band features 41 venues, spread across the likes of Amsterdam, Berlin, Boston, Chicago, London, Los Angeles, Moscow, New York, Paris, Seattle, San Francisco, Sydney and Tokyo, just to name a few.

So when exactly will you be teeing off neighbors with your plastic drum set? If you ask GamePro, November 6th, which would place it about a week after Guitar Hero III should you pay attention to GameStop. We've placed an inquiry with Harmonix and we'll let you know what we hear.

[Update - Weekend be damned! Harmonix has gotten back to us regarding the November 6th release date listed in GamePro. As of now, there is no official release date beyond "Holiday 2007." So until Harmonix drops the official deets themselves, its best to take everything lightly.]

[Thanks, cezar515!]
