On Friday 24th, April, Post Malone summoned the spirit of the late Kurt Cobain to a COVID-19 relief. The 1 hour 17 minute song included classic Nirvana songs such as “About a Girl”, “Heart-Shaped Box” and “Come As You Are”.

With his bud light in his hand and rocking a flower dress in true Cobain style, the popular artist joined Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker, bassist Brian Lee and guitarist Nick Mack, all of whom practiced this social distance in other rooms in Post’s Salt Lake City home.

However, the consensus on social media was mostly positive, the event was more than just a few songs to share with its fans. TMZ reports that, $1 million was raised within the first hour of the virtual concert, and the number has since grown to over $ 4.3 million.

This event will raise funds for The United Nations Foundation’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for The World Health Organization (WHO) in support of COVID-19 relief efforts.

Nirvana bass player Krist Novoselić said: “I don’t think these buddies can play better. They burn !!!!” and added that he “held back emotions throughout the show”.
