Temple of the Dog Announces First-Ever Tour for 25th Anniversary July 20, 2016 15:19
When thinking back on memories of 90's rock, it would be difficult not to bring Temple of the Dog into the conversation. The 90's supergroup, best known for their hit "Hunger Strike," featured Chris Cornell (Soundgarden) and Eddie Vedder (Pearl Jam), as well as Pearl Jam's Jeff Ament, Matt Cameron, Mike McCready and Stone Gossard. Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder was also featured on "Hunger Strike." Earlier today, Temple of the Dog announced it's first ever "tour," in honor of the band's 25th anniversary.
The supergroup originally came together after the passing Mother Love Bone frontman Andrew Wood, who was a close friend and roommate of Cornell. Gossard, Ament, and McCready were also members of Mother Love Bone and simultaneously forming a new band which would be known as Pearl Jam just six months later.
Temple of the Dog has only performed live a handful of times, mostly when Cornell has appeared live with Pearl Jam. They most recently performed at Pearl Jam's show at Seattle’s Benaroya Hall in 2015.
