In the year Kurt would have turned 50, we, Perth Symphony Orchestra, present a concert event unlike anything seen before in Western Australia. Or anywhere, for that matter. This isn’t Nirvana with strings. Prepare to witness a fully-fledged orchestra in bloom, transformed for one night into a raging rock beast.

Using Nirvana’s legendary MTV Unplugged in New York as inspiration, which took place just five-months before Kurt’s untimely death in 1994, PSO will take songs from the concert and from throughout Nirvana’s discography and blow them up. We had a crazy idea… see if Dave Grohl would come to Perth to honour the memory of Kurt Cobain and celebrate the nostalgia that this iconic album and Nirvana awaken in all of us…

Dave, if you’re reading this, we have a seat in the Orchestra with your name on it!
