First, it gets awesome pizza. Then, Michael Jordan. Then, the President of the United States. And now, Chicago not only gets an awesome Lollapalooza lineup this year, but a pre-Lolla [lastfm]Soundgarden[/lastfm] club gig! Find out more about what the lucky-sons-of-whatevers with tickets will be in store for after the jump.
To prepare for the band’s headline gig at Lollapalooza on August 8th, [lastfm]Soundgarden[/lastfm] will play a warm-up gig at the Vic Theatre (with a capacity of 1,400) on August 5th, the night before the festival kicks off.
Tickets are available only through the band’s official fan club, and there will be security protocols in place to make sure that the tickets cannot be scalped.
There has not been word yet as to how extensive this reunion will be – whether the band is playing a couple of one-off dates, looking at a full tour or even recording again.
There will be new [lastfm]Soundgarden[/lastfm] tracks this fall, though; a previously-unreleased track, “Black Rain,” will make an appearance in the next “Guitar Hero” game.
Let’s go back in time, shall we?
