It took a little longer than expected, but reunited grunge gods Soundgarden have announced plans for their first North American tour in 14 years. The band will look to follow up last summer’s headlining performance at Lollapalooza and possibly support a new studio album when they launch the trek in Toronto on July 2nd. Currently, only four dates have been announced, but an issued press release notes more will be added in the coming weeks. After Toronto, Soundgarden will hit Philadelphia, PA on July 13th, Morrison, CO on July 18th, and Los Angeles, CA on July 22nd.
Soundgarden’s fan club will have first dibs on tickets starting April 18th. A public on-sale for Morrison begins April 22nd, with the other three dates available April 23rd. Click here for additional ticket information.
Update: Per the band’s Facebook wall, The Mars Volta will open in Philadelphia, Denver, and Los Angeles.
