Soundgarden Plan Spring Tour & Some Festival Gigs
Mon, 27 Feb 2017 09:45:40
Soundgarden, who are reportedly back at work on a follow-up to their 2012 album King Animal, have just announced a spring tour to surround their previously announced music festival appearances.
Following a trio of Florida festival appearances that the band are slated to make in late April, the icons of grunge rock will continue their tour, which officially kicks off May 3rd in Atlanta, Georgia.
Chris Cornell and his band will make a number of appearances between standalone concerts and festival sets, including Rock on the Range and Carolina Rebellion. The the tour concludes May 27th with a gig at the Rocklahoma fest.
Soundgarden's famously rocking live shows will feature some exciting support acts in the shape of The Pretty Reckless, and Dillinger Escape Plan who will open shows on select dates.
Soundgarden fan club members will be able to get their hands on a special presale ticket, which will be made available to them on February 28th, with a general on-sale ticket to follow on March 3rd. Check out Soundgarden's site for complete details.
The tour will begin after the March 10th release of a remixed deluxe edition of the group's debut LP Ultramega OK. The project is being dubbed as a long-awaited "correction", and marks nearly twenty years of frustration for the band, who were immediately dissatisfied with the original SST Records mix of the the album.
It's an exciting time for Soundgarden fans — in recent months, Cornell reunited with a pair of former supergroup projects, going on a brief tour with Temple of the Dog before a one-off reformation of Audioslave. The upcoming live shows, and the promise of new material have made the upcoming season a hell of a lot sunnier for some people.
