Reunited grunge godfathers Soundgarden played to their largest audience since their breakup 13 years ago with Sunday night’s headlining set at Lollapalooza, which also drew its biggest audience ever with more than 240,000 attendees.
Soundgarden lived up to their hype with a set list that included several classics from the ‘90s, such as “Black Hole Sun” and “Rusty Cage.”
“Soundgarden exceeded expectations with a tight, nostalgia-bound set that echoed 1992,” says the Chicago Tribune. “Singer Chris Cornell’s long mane returned, his voice sounded tremendous and the band’s sludge rhythms thundered with menace.”
Soundgarden will release a career-retrospective, Telephantasm, on Sept. 28. Its only unreleased track, “Black Rain,” is expected to hit the radio waves on Aug. 10.
