'The campaign starts here'
A Facebook campaign has been launched to get Nirvana back together with Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger on vocals.
“The campaign starts here,” says the event page, which lists January 1, 2019, as the date the gig is expected to happen. It spells Kroeger’s name incorrectly too.
So far 735 people have said they are going, while 2.2k are interested in going.
The proposed venue by fans for the show is The Nirvana Hair and Beauty Bar in Manchester.
“Be Reet”, the proposed host of the show, jokingly posted on the Facebook event page, “‘Nickelvana’ Tour announcement imminent. Support comes from Puddle Of Mudd, Bush and Silverchair.”
Comments on the page have naturally been mixed with one user writing: “Can’t wait. I already know it’s gonna be the gig of 2019!”
“Watered down sterile formulaic radio rock? Yeah… that’s what kurt wanted all along,” wrote another, while one user added: “Aw hell nah.. This is a horrible idea. Chad isn’t even close to Kurt’s talent. Please don’t ruin Nirvana’s name with this.”
“The violation of basic human rights that seems to be a prevalent theme in our country right now – I would like to believe that Kurt wouldn’t have stood for that or accepted that,” she said.
Cobain also discussed the taboos surrounding mental health and addiction and her own struggles with both in the past, while her father also struggled with both before his suicide in 1994.
