Controversial rocker and the late Kurt Cobain’s partner Courtney Love has announced a solo tour of Australia.

The Hole frontwoman will bring out her solo show, You Know My Name, in August.

Love is known as an outspoken performer and also as the widow of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain.

She claimed recently that ’90s band Hole, who split originally in 2002 and played together on-off since then, had started rehearsing again.
