The hospital gown famously worn by Kurt Cobain during Nirvana’s 1992 Reading Festival performance is up for auction.
Cobain — whose health was much-discussed in the media in the run-up to the show — appeared onstage at the British festival in a wheelchair wearing a gown and wig.
The late star pretended to collapse, then got up and performed a 25-songset that would later become a live album.“
The gown is highly collectible as a key piece that is instantly recognizable from the final UK performance by the band,” said Bobby Livingston of RR Auction. It’s estimated to sell for around 55,000.
The auction ends Thursday.
