In 2013, attendees of Cochella were blown away when a holographic image of Tupac Shakur walked onto the stage and began performing his hit song, Hail Mary. Since then, record execs have been mulling over which deceased artist they should resurrect next and it appears they’ve finally made their decision; The legendary grunge rocker, Kurt Cobain.
Yes, it has been confirmed that Kurt Cobain will once again take the stage alongside original Nirvana members, Dave Grohl, and, Krist Novoselic, for what is sure to be the biggest concert event of 2014.
Kurt Cobain is known for being one of the founding members of the 90’s grunge movement. Born in Aberdeen, Washington, he started the band which would go onto become Nirvana in 1987. The late songwriter passed away in 1994 due to a widely publicized and controversial suicide.
Now, through the magic of holograph technology, Cobain will once again bond with his fans through the medium of live performance. Truly, the only foreseeable downside are incredibly expensive ticket prices, with the cheapest seats going for several hundred dollars.
Dave Grohl has since went on to form his own successful rock group, Foo Fighters, had the following to say about the upcoming tour. “We’re doing this for the fans, pure and simple. It’s been twenty years since the original Nirvana lineup has played together. It’s going to be an honor to once again share the stage with Cobain. Lots of fond memories. I can’t wait.”
The official show dates have yet to be announced but sources indicate that the tour should kick off in the late summer of 2014.
