Surviving members of NIRVANA reunite on stage to perform ‘Big Me’


Nirvana’s bassist Krist Novoselic joined Dave Grohl and Pat Smear on stage at Foo Fighters’ show

December 8, 2017

Foo Fighters’ audience in Eugene, Oregon was in for a big surprise on Tuesday night, November 5, as they witnessed an epic stage reunion: the surviving members of Nirvana performed one of the band’s songs together. Surprisingly, it wasn’t the most expected ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ or ‘Heart Shaped Box’. Instead, fans got to hear Foo’s song ‘Big Me’ from the band’s 1996 self-titled album.

Dave Grohl, Pat Smear and co. were on their extensive US tour in support of new album, Concrete & Gold, when they were joined by Nirvana’s bassist Krist Novoselic for a memorable performance. The three Nirvana members last played together in 2014 at their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

It’s worth mentioning that December 1 is a special date for Grohl: it marks the 26th anniversary of a live performance by Kurt Cobain and Dave Grohl at Edinburgh’s Southern Bar. The pair, reportedly, played five songs, including ‘Dumb’, ‘Polly’, and ‘Jesus Wants Me For A Sunbeam’.
