Watch Dave Grohl Perform Nirvana’s “In Bloom” For First Time In Years


Former Nirvana drummer and current Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl made a surprise appearance at Trombone Shorty’s Voodoo Threauxdown on Saturday in Los Angeles. Grohl performed the Nirvana classic “In Bloom” for an ambitious arrangement featuring horns.

The only other time Grohl has performed “In Bloom” since Nirvana’s disbandment in 1994 following Kurt Cobain’s death was in April 2014 in New York with Nirvana’s surviving members to celebrate the band’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction.

Grohl also did some singing with the Preservation Hall Band, looking quite classy in a suit. The Preservation Hall Band was featured on Foo Fighters’ Sonic Highways HBO series in 2014.

Dave Grohl has a busy weekend, as he and Foo Fighters headlined the KAABOO Festival in Del Mar on Friday.

Fox 5 San Diego reports, “For the first time, KAABOO, San Diego’s largest music, art and comedy festival, has sold out all three nights.

Organizers said an estimated 40,000 people will attend the three-day festival at the Del Mar Fairgrounds, making KAABOO the second largest event in San Diego, after San Diego Comic-Con.”
