Star Scene: Jon O’Connor, NIRVANA Tribute (UK)

Ahead of their Australian and New Zealand tour, Jon O’Connor chats to Mary Boukouvalas about what his Nirvana Tribute band gives back to the fans.

“After a few songs, the audience seems to have forgotten this is not the real Nirvana”.


Silverback Touring is thrilled to announce the return of Nirvana Tribute (from the UK)  for the highly-anticipated performance of Nirvana’s iconic album, “In Utero”, in full, as part of its 30th-anniversary celebrations. 


The band, which has been hailed as one of the best Nirvana tribute acts in the world, and is the only world touring tribute to the Seattle trio, has mesmerised audiences across the globe with their powerful performances, capturing the raw energy and essence of Nirvana. This upcoming tour promises to be no different, and is the bands third visit to Australia since 2019 having amassed a new legion of fans with each tour.


In Utero, which was released in 1993, was Nirvana’s third and final studio album, and is widely regarded as a masterpiece, showcasing the band’s incredible songwriting skills and Kurt Cobain’s unmistakable vocals. 


Fans will not only have the rare opportunity to hear the album played live, in its entirety, but will also experience a selection of Nirvana’s hits and deep cuts.


Tickets are expected to sell fast. This is a must for any fan of Nirvana and good music!
