Courtney Love reunited with the mid-'90s line-up of Hole for the first time in 15 years in New York last night (April 13) - scroll down and click below to watch fan footage of their two-song performance.

The singer was beckoned onstage by bassist Melissa Auf der Maur at an after-party for Hit So Hard, a new documentary about drummer Patty Schemel, at the city's Public Assembly venue.

Auf der Maur, Schemel and guitarist Erlandson were playing a one-off gig as the event's marquee act, called the Trinity Jam. "Is there a lady in the house who wants to join us for a song?" Auf Der Maur said from the stage. "We're waiting because apparently there's a Miss World in the house."

Love then took to the stage to play Hole's 1994 single 'Miss World', before returning for an encore cover of legendary punk group the Wipers' 'Over The Edge'.

"I know, it's a nice moment," Love told the crowd, before giving a shoutout to The Cribs, who were playing at the nearby Music Hall of Williamsburg on the same night.

Hole have been through numerous line-up changes over the past 23 years. Erlandson was in the original line-up with Love from 1989 until the group disbanded in 2002. Schemel joined in 1993 for a four-year stint, while Auf der Maur became part of the line-up in 1994.

Love returned with a new incarnation of the band in 2009 - with Micko Larkin on guitar, Shawn Dailey on bass and Stu Fisher on drums - and released new album 'Nobody's Daughter' in 2010. Fisher and Daily departed in 2011, the same year drummer Scott Lipps joined to complete the band's current line-up.

The reunion comes during a controversial week for Love, who became embroiled in a spat with Dave Grohl after accusing the Foo Fighters man of trying to seduce her 19-year-old daughter Frances Bean Cobain.

After learning of Love's accusations on Twitter, Grohl, who played in Nirvana with Frances' father Kurt Cobain, said in a statement: "Unfortunately Courtney is on another hateful Twitter rant. These new accusations are upsetting, offensive and absolutely untrue."

Love subsequently apologised to her daughter on Twitter after Frances issued a statement to clarify that she had "never been approached" by Grohl.

"Bean, sorry I believed the gossip. Mommy loves you," Love tweeted - ironically after Frances had suggested that "Twitter should ban [her] mother".
