Post Malone’s Nirvana tribute livestream concert aims to raise $5M for coronavirus relief

Post Malone will host a livestream concert tribute to Nirvana this Friday, April 24th at 3 p.m. PT/6 p.m. ET.

The show will broadcast live from Malone’s home and air on his official YouTube channel. A press release says he’ll “perform a set of Nirvana hits and fan favorites.” For more info, fans can text 817-270-6440, which is a number Post Malone offered up on his social media pages earlier this week alongside the note, “text me.”

During his livestream Friday, Malone 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.

A teaser for the concert is available to watch below.

Malone is an avowed Nirvana fan, who has previously covered “All Apologies” live. He also has a couple of Nirvana tattoos: His knuckles bear portraits of artists he admires who died at a young age, including Kurt Cobain, while the “Stay Away” tattooed on his forehead is a nod to the Nirvana song of the same name.

Post Malone released his most recent album, “Hollywood’s Bleeding,” last September. This year, he’s collaborated with artists like Ozzy Osbourne (“It’s a Raid”) and Justin Bieber (“Forever”).
