Soundgarden announce Superunknown 20th anniversary show in New York

Soundgarden will play an exclusive credit card-sponsored show at New York’s Webster Hall on June 2 to mark the 20th anniversary reissue of their 1994 album, “Superunknown.”

Available only to Citi card members, the event will mark the second time in Soundgarden’s career that they will perform the album from beginning to end; the first time was in Austin, Texas during SXSW in March.

Tickets to the Soundgarden performance will cost $19.94 and be available for purchase only with a Citi credit or debit card beginning Wednesday, May 21st at 10 AM, EST.

More information on how to purchase tickets can be found here.

On June 3, Soundgarden will release the 20th anniversary reissue of “Superunknown.”

The project features the Seattle band’s breakthrough release; propelled by the singles “Spoonman”, “Black Hole Sun”, “Fell On Black Days”, “My Wave” and “The Day I Tried To Live”, the album debuted at No. 1 in the US and went on to sell more than 9 million copies worldwide, including 5 million in the States alone.

The “Superunknown” reissue will be released in two versions: a 2-CD Deluxe Edition and a 5-CD Super Deluxe Edition – check out the tracklisting for the projects here.

A 2-LP gatefold of the original 16 vinyl tracks remastered on 200-gram vinyl in a gatefold jacket will also be made available.

Soundgarden launch a series of European dates in Istanbul, Turkey on June 6, and then team up with Nine Inch Nails for a summer tour of North America with shows starting July 19 in Las Vegas.
