Dave Grohl not ruling out future Nirvana shows

Just weeks after Nirvana reunited to perform at Foo Fighters’ CalJam festival, Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic have said they’re open to the prospect of more shows from the grunge icons.

During the closing night of the LA festival, the surviving members of the legendary Seattle band reunited on stage. It was only the second time they have performed together since Kurt Cobain’s death in 1994.

Grohl, Pat Smear and Novoselik performed six tracks – with Joan Jett and Deer Tick’s John McCauley performing with the band.

The same line-up performed in 2014, after Nirvana’s induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

And now, Grohl has admitted that future performances could take place – but it’s delicate territory.

“After we played the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, I considered the idea that, if there was an opportunity, we could do it again,” Grohl told Kerrang.

“But it’s delicate territory, and you can’t treat it like just another show,” Grohl added. “It’s very complicated, and very special. In those moments, when it just happens naturally, I think is the best way.”

Novoselic added: “Personally, it was great to play with those guys again, and to play those songs.”

Novoselic, however, added that it will not become a “regular thing” and it “won’t become a full circus”.

Nirvana’s CalJam setlist was:

Serve The Servants (with John McCauley)
Scentless Apprentice (with John McCauley)
In Bloom (with John McCauley)
Breed (with Joan Jett)
Smells Like Teen Spirit (with Joan Jett)
All Apologies (with Joan Jett and Brody Dalle)
