Soundgarden to Play Special ‘Superunknown’ Show in NYC Followed by Summer Tour with NIN
Grunge rock icons Soundgarden will play a special show featuring a setlist of their entire seminal album Superunknown at Webster Hall in New York on June 2. The show will be similar to the one they performed at SXSW in March (although long-time drummer Matt Cameron will be able to join them on stage) and only available to Citi credit or debit cardholders for the low price of $19.94 (a nod to the year of the album’s release). Tickets go on sale May 21 at 10 AM via Citi Private Pass. After the Superunknown show, the guys will hit the road with Nine Inch Nails, starting off at the Pemberton Music Festival in Pemberton, Canada on July 18. The two 90s rock legends will play a variety of shows throughout middle of the country, from Las Vegas to Mansfield, MA, and then make their way down the East coast through New Jersey and Virginia, eventually hitting Atlanta on August 8 and then moving on to runs through Florida, Texas and the Southwest. They’ll then play up through California and Oregon, eventually hitting the White River Amphitheater in Seattle for their final show on August 30.
A mainstay of the Seattle grunge scene that eventually took over American alt-rock throughout the 90s, Soundgarden found its biggest success with Superunknown, which was their fourth album. The group broke up in 1997, but reunited in 2010.
