Nirvana Bassist Krist Novoselic to Perform ‘Nevermind’ in Concert
Krist Novoselic leads the pack of bands that will perform every song from Nirvana’s 1991 landmark album ‘Nevermind’ at a special concert in Seattle on Sept. 20.
This concert will celebrate the enduring value of ‘Nevermind,’ which turns 20 on Sept. 24, and will benefit music industry guru Susie Tennant, who served for their label, Geffen Records, in the ‘90s. Tennant was diagnosed with ovarian cancer earlier this year.
The benefit concert will take place at the Sky Church Venue, located at the Experience Music Project. Acts are still being announced, but the bands confirmed to play include: Fastbacks, Vaporland, The Long Winters, Visqueen, Campfire OK, Ravenna Woods, Valis (ex-Screaming Trees), Crypts and Vendetta Red.
Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl will not be in attendance, as he will be performing with his band the Foo Fighters at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland on the same night.
‘Nevermind' historically changed the course of music, wiping out an entire generation of hair metal predecessors and leading the way for just about every popular rock band that followed. A deluxe box set version of the album will be issued Sept. 27 to celebrate its upcoming anniversary. Together, Novoselic and the bands will honor this musical milestone while benefiting a local friend in need.
