Nirvana - Krist Novoselic To Perform Nevermind In Full

Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic will perform the band's classic 'Nevermind' album in full.

The 46-year-old rocker will join forces with the likes of Seattle bands Campfire OK, the Long Winters, Visqueen, the Fastbacks and Vaporland for a tribute show which will pay homage to the 20th anniversary of the legendary 1991 album.

According to radio station 107.7 The End, Krist will perform the record in full on September 20 at the Sky Church at Seattle's Experience Music Project.

Former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl - who now fronts the Foo Fighters - recently admitted he thinks Krist is the "soul" of their previous group, and hanging out with him stirs up strong memories.

He said: "He hasn't changed a bit, so to hear him speak or to hear him tell stories or to hear him talk about Nirvana - it really brings back the feeling of being in the band because it's just part of his soul." Dave also explained the dynamic of the grunge band - which disbanded after the suicide of singer Kurt Cobain in 1994 - was created by the fine balance in drive and personality between Kurt and Krist.

He added: "You've got Krist, who was totally politically motivated, and then you've got Kurt, who was just such a brilliant artist, that it was that weird conflict or dichotomy or whatever it is.

"Those two things shouldn't really co-exist in a way, so whenever something's released, usually to me it's only authentic if it comes from Krist Novoselic."

There is no word if Dave will also be involved in the 'Nevermind' concert.
