Tuning in with Thomas Conner

Soundgarden playing Lollapalooza -- and Vic Theatre just before

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Soundgarden is reuniting for an appearance at next week's Lollapalooza -- but the band has now announced a special concert just before the big Grant Park Festival. They'll be performing Aug. 5 at the 1,400-capacity Vic Theatre.

Wanna go? You'll have to log in or sign up for the band's fan club on the Web site. Do it now -- registration for the ticket drawing ends midnight Thursday (tomorrow night). Winners then will be randomly selected for the opportunity to purchase a ticket this Friday.

Soundgarden broke up in 1997 after a run of lumbering hits such as "Black Hole Sun." Singer Chris Cornell, guitarist Kim Thayil, bassist Ben Shepherd and drummer Matt Cameron have been rehearsing all summer for the reunion, though we have yet to hear how far the show will travel.
