Surviving Nirvana Members Reunite at Foo Fighters Concert

Story by Cat Badra

Surviving Nirvana members Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic were together again on the stage during a Foo Fighters concert in Eugene, Oregon, Tuesday night (Dec. 5). While Grohl and the Foos are known for bringing special guests on the stage at times, this was a pleasant surprise to the thousands of fans in attendance at Tuesday’s concert. The two performed the Foo Fighters song “Big Me,” and fan-shot footage of the appearance is up now YouTube.

What makes this performance extra Nirvana-like is that Foo Fighters also features Pat Smear, who toured with Nirvana as the band’s rhythm guitarist. It’s pretty much the closest thing you can get to a Nirvana reunion without late singer Kurt Cobain.

This isn’t the first collaboration between Novoselic, Grohl and Smear since Cobain’s death, though. The three previously reunited to record the track “Cut Me Some Slack” with Paul McCartney in 2012, and the trio also performed together during Nirvana’s Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction in 2014.

Novoselic, Grohl and Smear also got together to perform with Beck at a pre-Grammy Awards show in 2016.

In other news, the guys of Foo Fighters are currently touring North America to promote their latest album, “Concrete and Gold.” The band’s next show is Saturday (Dec. 9) in Billings, Montana.
