With the two bands solid rivalry over the years, which is clearly behind them, they are embark on this summer tour together, arriving at the First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre on July 24th. The outing will mark the 20th anniversary of the bands (Nine Inch Nails) release of The Downward Spiral and Soundgarden's release of Superunknown on March 8, 1994. Expect to see support band Death Grips opening the shows. Tickets available now!
With some of the most recognizable sounds in the industry NIN and Soundgarden are top dogs when it comes to alt rock. The dark and twisted melodies of NIN is apparent with songs such as "Closer" "Sin" And "Hurt". Soundgarden are masters of alt heavy rock, with essences of grunge, an addiction with prog rock and performance art which appealed to metal fans.
It's been 20 years since the two bands shared a gig; the last time they performed together was at Ontario's Molson Park in 1994 in a gig Trent Reznor later described as "a kind of professional showdown." The bands had each released an album on the same day that year (NIN's Downward Spiral and Soundgarden's Superunknown) and Reznor said his band had a chip on their shoulder regarding Soundgarden. Fitting that the bands are coming together on the anniversary of those incredible albums.
For those who haven't experienced these guys live on stage, you really have missed out, but no fear! This is your time to get those tickets for an unforgettable experience!
