The short but impactful run of grunge-rock icons Nirvana came to an end when singer/guitarist Kurt Cobain killed himself in the spring of 1994. Shortly thereafter, drummer Dave Grohl crawled out from behind his drum kit to take over guitar and singer duties with his own solo project in the form of a bunch of DIY garage rock songs that would eventually become the first Foo Fighters album. Earlier this week, the surviving members of Nirvana in Grohl, Pat Smear and Kris Novoselic reunited on stage during a Foo Fighters show in Eugene, Ore. to perform one of the songs from that first Foo Fighters LP in “Big Me.”

As seen and heard in the fan-shot video above, the Foo welcome Novoselic onto the stage at Eugene's Matthew Knight Arena for what was surely a pretty exciting moment for those who have been following Dave's career since the early days. Grohl can be heard talking about the story of how “Big Me” came about with help from his former bass-playing bandmate in the months following Kurt’s death as the video starts out. By the looks of it, Foo Fighters bassist Nate Mendel appears to have stepped off stage for the performance, graciously giving Novoselic the sole spotlight to enjoy a few minutes of jamming away with his old friend.

The cover came 19 songs into their 23-song set on Monday night, which also saw the popular rock band covering Queen’s “Under Pressure” with help from the tour's support act, The Struts.

Following a brief hiatus, the Foo Fighters returned earlier this year with the release of their ninth studio album in Concrete and Gold. The veteran hard rock group will continue their promotional efforts into 2018 with a huge run of North American and international tour dates scheduled to start shortly after the start of the new year. Their 2018 campaign will see them performing across the U.S., Canada, and Europe throughout the winter, spring and summer before coming to a close in mid-September. The band also announced recently that their own CalJam rock festival will return to San Bernardino, CA for its second year next October. Tickets for select shows on their 2018 world tour are on sale now, and can be purchased by clicking here.
