One of the most iconic alternative artists of the past 30 years, this controversial female singer made her name as the vocalist in grunge group Hole - but was thrust into the global spotlight as a result of her marriage to the late Nirvana singer Kurt Cobain. Known as much for her legendary hellraising behaviour as her critically-acclaimed music, she's now back on the live circuit as a solo performer with a follow-up to her 2004 album America's Sweetheart expected in 2014.

Courtney Love Biography - America's Alternative Sweetheart
Born Courtney Harrison in 1964, Love endured a nomadic childhood after her parents - a rock manager and a psychotherapist - split when she was 5. The seeds of her music career were spread when she moved to Ireland to study at Trinity College and she later met musician Julian Cope. Eventually she kicked off her own musical projects, working with the likes of Faith No More and Babes in Toyland before forming her breakthrough band Hole in the late '80s.
Produced by Sonic Youth's Kim Gordon, the group's 1991 debut album Pretty on the Inside was a cult hit on both sides of the Atlantic, leading to huge tours of the US and Europe. Around the same time, Love began dating Kurt Cobain and fell pregnant, leading to a break from music. However, following her return to the scene, tragedy struck in 1994 when the troubled grunge icon took his own life. Opting to continue her career following the incident, Love went on to secure further success with Hole, including topping the alternative charts with their signature hit 'Celebrity Skin' in 1998. As this unpredictable icon prepares her first solo release in a decade, buy Courtney Love tickets on StubHub to hear her latest alternative anthems.
