Krist Novoselic has revealed that he would be interested in performing Nirvana songs live.

The bassist was speaking to Australian radio station Triple J and, when asked if he would be keen on visiting the country for the first time 20 years to perform some of the band's tracks, he replied: "That's the best plan I've heard all year. It has to happen."

Novoselic also revealed that he had originally been hoping to play live in the country with former bandmate Dave Grohl's Sound City Players project, adding: "I was gonna come over with Dave [Grohl] to do the Sound City thing but that hasn't happened yet. I wanna get there, man. When there's a continental drift, I'll be there."

Over the past year, former Nirvana members Novoselic, Grohl and guitarist Pat Smear have played a number of shows with Beatles legend Paul McCartney. The foursome performed a gig in Seattle, the city whose grunge scene Nirvana became an integral part of, in July of this year but elected to play a smattering of Beatles tracks rather than any songs originally performed by Kurt Cobain and co.

Nirvana's seminal 1993 LP 'In Utero', meanwhile, is being reissued today (September 23) to mark the 20th anniversary of its release. It will feature 70 tracks, including previously unreleased recordings and demos, B-sides and compilation tracks and live material featuring the band's final touring line-up of Kurt Cobain, Krist Novoselic, Dave Grohl and Pat Smear.

A host of bands including The Vaccines, Everything Everything, Fidlar, Chvrches, Deap Vally and Jagwar Ma have payed tribute to Nirvana's 'In Utero', which is celebrating 20 years since its release. Check out what they've got to say in the video here.
