In 1992, Nirvana were rumoured to have bailed on England’s Reading Festival, but they ended up showing up and playing the now legendary show. The band’s performance was also widely talked about because of late frontman Kurt Cobain’s interesting fashion statement when he showed up wearing a hospital gown.
Now, 27 years later, the iconic outfit is up for auction, and it’s predicted to sell for over $50,000. The gown will be made available by Boston’s RR Auctions as of March 14th, and you can check out the page devoted for the stylish look here.
The garment comes accompanied by a letter of provenance that certifies that the gown was gifted to an unidentified owner during a vigil for Cobain at the Seattle Center. Check out some clips from the legendary performance below.
