Primal Scream frontman Bobby Gillespie paid tribute to rock icon Kurt Cobain during the band's concert in Italy this week (beg22Nov13) by singing classic Nirvana track Heart-Shaped Box.

The Rocks hitmakers were performing at the Alcatraz venue in Milan on Wednesday (20Nov13) when Gillespie took time out from an encore to dedicate a song to Cobain, who died aged 27 in 1994.

Gillespie sang a verse from Nirvana's 1993 single Heart-Shaped Box before performing Primal Scream track Higher Than The Sun in honour of Cobain.
