Spotify tells Nirvana fans the band's got a show lined up

Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic says it will "take some work" to pull off a gig the band's meant to be playing next month.

Spotify has reportedly told fans of the group they'd be performing at a small club in California next month, despite their lead singer Kurt Cobain having been dead for 25 years.

The grunge legends are set to play the 450-capacity club Discovery in Ventura on August 9, according to the music streaming service. 

"I could make this show, but will take some work to pull it off," Novoselic tweeted in response.

Cobain died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound in April 1994. Without their lead singer and songwriter, the band instantly disbanded. Drummer Dave Grohl went on to have commercial success with his own band the Foo Fighters, while Novoselic has pursued a less high-profile career.

The band played together for the first time since Cobain's death in 2012, with Beatles legend Paul McCartney on vocals. Since then they've played only a handful of few reunion shows, with guest singers including Joan Jett, Beck, St Vincent, Lorde, J Mascis of Dinosaur Jr and Sonic Youth's Kim Gordon.
