Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic are interested in playing even more Nirvana gigs

Nirvana fans might be getting very excited.

To begin with, nobody could ever, ever, EVER replace Kurt Cobain.


This statement is true in terms of his seismic impact on the music industry, and on the unique vocals that he supplied for every Nirvana track.

Cobain's incredible vocals were a large reason why Nirvana were so distinct and the level of raw emotion that the frontman conveyed in his performances was jaw-dropping.

There will never be another Kurt Cobain but if his iconic tracks are going to be performed live, Nirvana fans are probably ok with them being played by two men that knew him better than most, Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic.

Hell, it's better than Take That covering Smells Like Teen Spirit.


As stated previously, the surviving members of Nirvana recently reunited on stage for their second public performance since Cobain’s passing in 1994.

For their surprise six-song set at Foo Fighters’ Cal Jam Fest gig on 6 October, Grohl, Novoselic, and Pat Smear were joined by Joan Jett and Deer Tick’s John McCauley - who provided vocal duties.

In an interview with Kerrang!, Grohl and Novoselic were asked if they would be interested in continuing these performances by playing a few more Nirvana songs to a live crowd.


The two men are interested in this Nirvana 'reunion,' but solely on the provision that it doesn't "become a whole circus."

When the grunge icons were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Grohl admitted that he considered a tour which would see him and Novoselic playing some Nirvana tracks on the road.

"After we played the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, I considered the idea that, if there was an opportunity, we could do it again. But it’s delicate territory, and you can’t treat it like just another show. It’s very complicated, and very special. In those moments, when it just happens naturally, I think is the best way," said the Nirvana drummer.

As for Novoselic - the bassist in the iconic band - he's more than happy to play Nirvana's back catalogue to even more people.


“Personally, it was great to play with those guys again, and to play those songs,” Novoselic said.

However, like Grohl, the bassist doesn’t see Nirvana shows becoming a “regular thing” and insisted that this “won’t become a whole circus.”
