Soundgarden Tour Again After 14-Year Hiatus

By Pauline France

Soundgarden received a heartfelt welcome from concertgoers as it launched its first tour in 14 years at the Molson Amphitheatre in Toronto on July 2.

The band’s 14-year tour break wasn’t evident in their performance – they sounded as good as ever. If anything, they came back supercharged, treating fans to their greatest hits like “Black Rain,” “Rusty Cage” and “Black Hole Sun.”
