While news of Soundgarden joining Nine Inch Nails on tour this summer might have felt like the biggest thing the grunge pioneers could’ve announced this year, they’ve now surpassed it with their latest announcement. On June 2nd, at New York City’s Webster Hall, the band will be playing their hit album Superunknown live, in its entirety, for only the second time ever.
Adding to the beauty of this night is the fact Soundgarden is only charging $19.94 for tickets to the show, in celebration of the album’s 20th anniversary – tickets will go on sale May 21st.
The band will continue touring the rest of the year, and not just with NIN – Soundgarden have a hot 4th of July planned with Black Sabbath and Faith No More at the British Summer Time Festival. Sadly, they will not be playing at Sasquatch!, however, due to the cancellation of their planned weekend at the Gorge.
In the chance you do get to see Soundgarden rock out this summer, be sure to prep with a listen to the remasters they recently did of Screaming Life and the EP Fopp, as well as the quintessential Superunknown. Then be prepared to be blown away by their reworkings of the solid music they created over 20 years ago.
