Watch Kasabian’s Mighty Nirvana Cover At Reading Festival

Written by Sam Murphy on August 27, 2017

Kasabian headlined Reading & Leeds Festival in the UK over the weekend and pulled out a Nirvana cover to mark the occasion.

The British band took on ‘All Apologies’ off Nirvana’s In Utero record giving it a tinge of Brit rock, the sort only Kasabian could inject.

This year marked 25 years since Nirvana performed at the iconic British festival and Kasabian’s performance was aptly commemorating that.

After the performance, Serge Pizzorno told NME, “We did a nice little shout out to Nirvana because it was 25 years since they played, so we did ‘All Apologies’.

“As a kid, it passed me by. There was a divide with Nirvana. Nirvana kids and rave kids – they just didn’t mix. It’s only in the last 10 years or so that I really got into Nirvana. He was one of the greats – the true greats.”

Watch the epic performance below and also watch Nirvana playing ‘All Apologies’ at Reading back in 1992.
