SuperGroup Temple Of The Dog, made up of members of Soundgarden and Pearl Jam, announced their first ever tour!
Temple of the Dog initially started as a studio project in tribute to late Mother Love Bone vocalist Andrew Wood. The band was made up of former members of Mother Love Bone, and members of Soundgarden and Pearl Jam. The thought of the group began when Chris Cornell, who was Andrew Wood’s roommate, found him overdosed on heroin. Chris Cornell began writing songs in tribute to his fallen friend and approached Mother Love Bone members Stone Gossard and Jeff Ament and they began recording what eventually became their eponymous self-titled debut. Outside of a few local shows, the group never played live. That is Until now.
The limited tour coincides with the 25th anniversary re-release of the debut album, and will lead to the band playing five cities – Philadelphia, New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Seattle, in November. The line up will be Chris Cornell, Pearl Jam’s Jeff Ament, Stone Gossard, and Mike McCready, and drummer Matt Cameron.
