Post Malone will be paying tribute to Nirvana when he hosts a livestream concert this Friday at 6 PM ET.
The longtime fan promised a “set of Nirvana hits and fan favorites” as he performs from his home with the show airing on his YouTube channel.
The concert will raise money for the United Nations Foundation’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the World Health Organization. Additionally, Google will be matching donations at up to $5 million with proceeds going towards the UN Foundation.

Post Malone also offered fans the opportunity to text him before the concert. Fans can text 817-270-6440 for more information.
Although he’s best known for his Hip Hop work, Post Malone has treated fans to Nirvana covers in the past. He’s previously covered “All Apologies” live in concert and bears several tattoos with references to the band.
On his knuckle he has a portrait of Kurt Cobain while the “Stay Away” tattoo on his face is in tribute to the Nirvana song of the same name.
Most recently, Post Malone teamed up with Machine Gun Kelly to host a virtual beer pong tournament with proceeds benefiting coronavirus relief. A host of celebrities participated including NFL players Rob Gronkowski and Travis Kelce, MLB players Trevor Bauer and Mike Clevinger, as well as country musicians Kane Brown and Morgan Wallen.
