Beck, St. Vincent & Grohl's daughter Violet will also be joining him.
Nirvana fans are in for a real treat this weekend at Art of Elysium's 13th annual "Heaven Is Rock & Roll" gala, as surviving members Krist Novoselic (bass) and Pat Smear (guitar) have been confirmed as part of the "Dave Grohl & Friends" performance at the benefit. Beck, St. Vincent and Grohl's daughter Violet will also be joining him.
Last month, a nondescript "Grohl & Friends" was announced alongside Marilyn Manson, Cheap Trick and L7 as the evening's performers. The last time the longtime Nirvana drummer played onstage with Novoselic and Smear was at Cal Jam 2018 in San Bernardino, Calif., when the trio broke into their throwbacks for a six-song encore set with vocal assists from Joan Jett and Deer Tick's John McCauley.
