A hospital gown worn by legendary rocker Kurt Cobain during an iconic Reading Festival set has emerged for sale for £40,000. ($50,000)<br />
<br />
The Nirvana frontman chose the unusual attire to poke fun at media speculation about his wellbeing ahead of their performance on August 30, 1992.<br />
<br />
He was pushed on stage in a wheelchair and pretended to collapse before jumping up and delivering a blistering set considered to be one of the band's finest.<br />
<br />
Two years later Cobain committed suicide and his on-off partner Courtney Love gave the gown to a shocked fan who had attended a vigil for him.<br />
<br />
The fan kept hold of it for 25 years before deciding now to consign it for sale with US auction house RR Auctions.
