Nirvana - Nirvana Rockers Play Surprise Post-hall Of Fame Show

The surviving members of Nirvana played a surprise gig in New York City following their Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction on Thursday night (10Apr14), with an all-star roster of rockers filling in for late frontman Kurt Cobain on lead vocals.

The iconic grunge band was feted during a ceremony at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, and Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic were joined on stage by Joan Jett, St. Vincent, Sonic Youth's Kim Gordon and Lorde for their live performances.

After the show, the band headed to the nearby 350-capacity Saint Vitus venue to pay a surprise gig, performing a 19-song set of Nirvana classics until 4am.

Gordon, Jett and St. Vincent reprised their alternating roles as singer, with Dinosaur Jr. frontman J Mascis and Deer Tick rocker John MCCauley also joining the band on stage to stand-in for Cobain, who died in 1994.
