Temple of the Dog, the early 90s supergroup featuring members of Soundgarden, Mother Love Bone and Eddie Vedder before he was in Pearl Jam, will reunite this fall. The tour will celebrate the 25th anniversary of the band's self-titled debut (and only) album. The reunion tour will only be five stops and Vedder isn't involved. Here are the dates:
November 4 - Philadelphia, PA @ Tower Theater
November 7 - New York, NY @ Madison Square Garden
November 11 - San Francisco, CA @Bill Graham Civic Center
November 14 - Los Angeles, CA @ The Forum
November 20 - Seattle, WA @ Paramount Theater
Temple of the Dog will always be special to me because the song "Hunger Strike" is basically amazing. The band came out in that sweet period before grunge killed all the good music and Temple of the Dog was just regarded as a rock band. I remember racing to the TV with my childhood best friend Samantha every time the video came on. We loved the song and thought Eddie Vedder was too cute!
