Post Malone is paying tribute to Kurt Cobain and his iconic band with a special concert from home, featuring Nirvana songs and it’s all for coronavirus relief.
The superstar announced on his Instagram that he will be hosting a Nirvana tribute live stream this weekend which will take place this Friday (April 24) at 11 pm BST. The singer put up a video on Wednesday, showing himself sitting on a stool on stage with an acoustic guitar in his hand while an unseen crowd cheers in the background.
It appears the singer had expressed his love for Kurt Cobain’s band in 2016 when he covered “Nevermind” track “Lithium” during his performance in Coachella. The star even has a portrait of Kurt Cobain tattoo on his knuckles and another on his face that reads “stay away ” from the Nirvana song of the same name so It’s a no brainer he will be performing it this Friday.
Broadcasting live from his home, he will perform a set of “Nirvana hits and favorites” according to a press release. A source revealed that Post wanted to honour Nirvana’s frontman this month, which marks the 26th anniversary of his death but also as his way to help out in the COVID-19 fight.
Fans will be able to make donations in support of the coronavirus and the money raised will go towards The United Nations Foundation’s and COVID-19 solidarity response fund for The World Health Organization with relief efforts in real-time during the concert
Post Malone encouraged people to text him for more information on the live stream event.
