’90s grunge supergroup Temple Of The Dog played the first show on their US reunion tour overnight in Philadelphia and boy, it was something to behold.
The Seattle-hailing outfit, made up of Chris Cornell of Soundgarden, and Pearl Jam‘s Jeff Ament, Stone Gossard, Mike McCready and Matt Cameron – whipped the music world into a frenzy earlier this year with the announcement of this tour, plus additional plans to re-release their self-titled debut album on a disc featuring rare or unheard tracks.
The tour is in support of the 25th anniversary reissue of that seminal 1991 album, and according to Consequence Of Sound their first concert of the tour included 23 songs, two encores, as well as covers of The Cure, Led Zeppelin, David Bowie, Syd Barrett, Black Sabbath and more.
In an interview with Rolling Stone in August, Cornell flagged the likelihood of shows outside the US in the near future if their current run goes well.
We can only hope people, and pray.
