Post Malone’s Charity Livestream Show Will Be A Nirvana Tribute
Say what you want about Post Malone but I love the guy! His songs are hella catchy. Posty has not hidden his love of rock music. His most recent album, Hollywood's Bleeding, has a song featuring the Prince of Darkness himself. Now, he'll be playing tribute to one of his idols, Kurt Cobain.
Because of the current state of our lives, many artists are throwing livestream concerts from their homes and now Posty is jumping in the ring. In a video teaser it was announced that Posty will be livestreaming a full concert tribute to Nirvana. On Friday, April 24th, Posty's YouTube channel will air the full concert from his home. In a press release it says during the live show, Posty will raise money for the United Nations Foundation’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the World Health Organization. Throughout the show, Google will match all donations at up to $5 million, with all proceeds going to the UN Foundation.
Posty has made his love of Nirvana perfectly clear. His face tattoo "Stay Away" is in tribute to the Nirvana song of the same name. He's covered "Lithium" at Coachella, and "All Apologies" in Boston.
TMZ says that Posty wanted to originally honor Kurt earlier this month to mark the anniversary of his death. You may not like the young hip hop artist, but you have to admit, this may be better than that Puddle of Mudd cover of "About a Girl". (Sorry, Wes Scantlin)
