Soundgarden appeared during the third day of the iTunes Festival’s SXSW offshoot event. The hour-long set saw the grunge icons play their acclaimed fourth album Superunknown in full for the first time ever. The concert was webcast live online, which you can now replay it in full over at iTunes.
In his review, our own Michael Roffman called the evening a “demonstration, perhaps no different than the seminars at the ACC, only to explain to young rockers that excellence can be achieved over 70 minutes and with a solid producer. The only downer of the night were a handful of greying fans in the balcony who felt Soundgarden was better experienced in their seats. Apparently grunge isn’t dead, just geriatric.”
Below, enjoy a preview of the performance with fan-shot footage:
March 8th marked the 20th anniversary of the smash album’s release, an occasion that will also be celebrated with a deluxe reissue on June 3rd.
