Courtney Love let it all hang out during a performance at a gig to commemorate the 60th anniversary of Allen Ginsberg's 1955 poem 'Howl'.

Love, formerly of 90s grunge band Hole, appeared on stage in a plunging dress as she performed at the benefit held in LA in aid of the David Lynch Foundation.

The 50-year-old star appeared alongside Broken Social Scene's Kevin Drew, Devendra Banhart, and Red Hot Chilli Peppers' Chad Smith.

Love features in the documentary Cobain: Montage of Heck about her late husband and Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain which releases this Friday April 10.

She agreed to appear in Brett Morgan's film, executive produced by Love and Cobain's daughter Frances Bean, but allegedly fell out with both after Frances (who does not appear as an adult in the film) retained more editorial control.

The spat led to Frances obtaining a restraining order against her mother.  Love subsequently pulled out of an appearance at the film's premiere at South by Southwest last month although organisers blamed filming commitments for the no-show.

Love has recently been working on her acting career with appearances on Empire and Revenge, although she has not abandoned music as she's lined up for US tour dates in May.
