Courtney Love storms offstage after gig goer holds up picture of Kurt Cobain – video
Hole singer also hits out at Dave Grohl after stage storm-off
The singer spotted the picture during the band's set on the New Stage at the Sao Paulo festival and told the crowd member that their behaviour was "stupid and rude" and that they didn't have to live with Cobain's "ghost and kid" every day.
Speaking in between songs, Love said to the crowd member: "I don't need to see a picture of Kurt asshole and I'm going to have you fucking removed if you keep holding that up. I'm not Kurt, I have to live with his shit and his ghost and his kid every day and throwing that up is stupid and rude and I'm going to beat the fuck out of you if you do it again."
She continued: "You weren’t fucking married to him, I fucking was. You didn’t get kicked out of a band by him, like Dave, he did. Go see the fucking Foo Fighters and do that shit."
Love then stormed offstage for just over one minute, but returned after a member of her entourage demanded that the crowd chant: "The Foo Fighters are gay". She then returned and offered a new, thinly veiled dig at Dave Grohl, telling the crowd: "I don’t care what you listen to at home, but if a guy takes off money off my kid’s table, fuck him."
Hole are currently touring the world and recently pulled out of a planned stint on Australia's Soundwave Festival after Courtney Love discovered that her band would be below Limp Bizkit on the bill.
