Krist Novoselic Wants to Tour with Nirvana: 'It Has to Happen'
Krist Novoselic has revealed his ambitions to perform Nirvana songs live again.

In an interview with Australian radio station Triple J (via NME), Krist was asked if he would ever visit the country to perform Nirvana tracks live for the first time in over two decades.

"That's the best plan I've heard all year. It has to happen," said an enthusiastic Novoselic.

In the same interview, the bassist said he had recently been hoping to play in Australia alongside Dave Grohl as part of the recent Sound City Players tour:

"I was gonna come over with Dave [Grohl] to do the Sound City thing but that hasn't happened yet. I wanna get there, man. When there's a continental drift, I'll be there," he said.

Of course, the pair of former Nirvana players have performed together several times since their band's tragic demise in 1994. Over the past year, Grohl and Novoselic have performed with Sir Paul McCartney and former touring Nirvana guitarist Pat Smear, who also plays alongside Grohl in Foo Fighters. The group, however, has been averse to playing Nirvana songs, and instead have played Beatles tracks.

Do you think Novoselic is serious about wanting to play Nirvana tracks? Will it ever happen? Let us know what you think in the comments.
