Seattle Supergroup, Temple of the Dog, Reunites for First Tour, Ever
Chris Cornell (ABC Randy Holmes)
If you’re hungry for the early grungy sounds, you’re in luck. Seattle pre-supergroup, Temple of the Dog, is reuniting for their first-ever tour.
The five-date trek kicks off November 4 in Philadelphia and will hit New York City, San Francisco, Los Angeles before concluding November 20 in — where else? — Seattle.

The supergroup was created in honor of Andrew Wood, singer of Mother Love Bone. Temple of the Dog members then went on to superstar status: Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell and Matt Cameron, Pearl Jam’s Jeff Ament, Stone Gossard and Mike McCready. Temple of the Dog released their first and only album in 1991.
All five will take part in the reunion tour, although it looks like Eddie Vedder, who famously duets with Cornell on the hit single “Hunger Strike,” isn’t officially involved.
“We wanted to do the one thing we never got to do,” says Cornell of the reunion. “Play shows and see what it feels like to be the band that we walked away from 25 years ago.”
Additionally, the Temple of the Dog album will be reissued in honor of its 25th anniversary. The collection, which will be available on vinyl, CD and digitally, will be released September 30.
Here are Temple of the Dog’s reunion tour dates:
11/4 — Philadelphia, PA, Tower Theater
11/7 — New York, NY, Madison Square Garden
11/11 — San Francisco, CA, Bill Graham Civic Center
11/14 — Los Angeles, CA, The Forum
11/20 — Seattle, WA, Paramount Theater
