As part of the 20th anniversary celebrations for Nirvana’s seminal 1991 record ‘Nevermind’, the album will be performed live by former bassist Krist Novoselic.

Novoselic will be joined by a number of local musicians to perform the album at a show at the Sky Church at the Experience Music Project in Seattle on September 20, reports Pitchfork.

The Fastbacks, The Long Winters, Vaporland, Visqueen, Campfire OK, Valis – which feature former members of Screaming Trees – and Ravenna Woods. Apparently it is unlikely that Dave Grohl will appear at the show as Foo Fighters are playing a show on the same night in Cleveland.

A special exhibition to celebrate 20 years of Nirvana's 'Nevermind' is set for September in London. For more information, visit Nirvanaexhibition.com.

'Nevermind' will be reissued on September 19. The Super Deluxe Edition of the album comes with a raft of rarities and remixes across its four CDs and one DVD.

Only 10,000 copies of the Super Deluxe Version of the album will be released in North America, with another 30,000 for the rest of the world, including the UK.

'Nevermind' has sold over 30 million copies in the two decades since its release. It was the second studio album from Nirvana, the iconic grunge band made up of the late Kurt Cobain, Krist Novoselic and Foo Fighters mainman Dave Grohl.

You can watch the retro-inspired video to 'In Bloom' from 'Nevermind' at the bottom of the page.
