Singer Paul McCartney will take the place of late singer Kurt Cobain as the lead vocalist for Nirvana band for a concert.

Nirvana, which consisted of Cobain, singer Dave Grohl and bassist Krist Novoselic initially, will perform together after 20 years, but with McCartney leading the band this time.

McCartney, 70, has been secretly working with Grohl and Novoselic to perform at concert for a charity event here.

"I didn't really know who they were. They are saying how good it is to be back together. I said 'Whoa? You guys haven't played together for all that time?'," thesun.co.uk quoted McCartney as saying.

"And somebody whispered to me 'That's Nirvana. You're Kurt.' I couldn't believe it," he added.
