John Travolta has revealed that he was in attendance at the Nirvana reunion show last weekend, which saw the band’s surviving members joining forces to rattle through a selection of classic tracks.

Posting on Instagram, Travolta shared a photo of himself alongside Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear after their performance at The Art of Elysium’s annual Heaven Gala.

“Special moment backstage with Dave Grohl & friends for The Art Of Elysium fundraiser ‘Heaven Is Rock & Roll’ after kicking off award season 2020 with a For Your Consideration screening of The Fanatic at the Aero,” wrote Travolta on Instagram.

As for the show itself, the band were joined by a selection of guest vocalists including Grohl’s thirteen-year-old daughter Violet, St. Vincent and Beck.

Reviewing the reunion, NME wrote: “If there’s anything that’s missing from the performance, it’s a touch of genuine teenage nervous energy. That’s soon provided by Grohl’s 13 year-old daughter Violet, who stays rooted to the mic stand but delivers a ferocious version of ‘Heart-Shaped Box’ that can’t help but be the night’s most memorable moment.

“The Beck-led version of Nirvana Unplugged’s version of Bowie’s ‘The Man Who Sold The World’ seems terribly sedate in comparison, but it brings the band’s brief, half-hour wish-fulfilment set to a close.”
