Temple Of The Dog expand reunion tour

Seattle supergroup Temple Of The Dog – featuring members of Pearl Jam and Soundgarden – have expanded their reunion tour.

In addition to the original five shows, the group added second dates in Philadelphia, San Francisco and Seattle as part of their first official tour since forming in 1990.

Tickets for all shows went on sale July 29 and reportedly sold out so quickly that Ticketmaster were forced to respond to fans who questioned the system.

“We're sorry,” tweeted Ticketmaster. “For high demand events tons of people try purchasing from the limited inventory and tickets go quickly.”

The lineup of Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell, Pearl Jam’s Jeff Ament, Stone Gossard and Mike McCready, and drummer Matt Cameron – who plays with both bands – are regrouping to perform this fall in support of the 25th anniversary of the release of Temple Of The Dog’s first and only album.

On September 30th, the group will release a special 25th anniversary reissue of the project, newly mixed by Brendan O’Brien.

The collection will be available in several packages, including a 4-disc Super Deluxe, a double LP, a two CD Deluxe, and a single CD set.

“We wanted to do the one thing we never got to do … play shows and see what it feels like to be the band that we walked away from 25 years ago,” says Cornell.

$1.50 from each ticket sold will benefit the Chris and Vicky Cornell Foundation and an additional $1.50 will benefit Pearl Jam’s Vitalogy Foundation.
