Soundgarden - Soundgarden To Relive Glory Days With Reunion Tour

Soundgarden have kicked off their reunion tour.

The band - who are made up of lead singer and guitarist Chris Cornell, lead guitarist Kim Thayil, drummer Matt Cameron and bassist Ben Shepherd - performed an energetic greatest hits gig at Toronto's Molson Amphitheatre in front of 16,000 fans on Saturday (02.07.11).

The 'Black Hole Sun' rockers - who split up in 1997 - took to the stage at the John Labatt Centre in London, Ontario on Sunday, with US metal group Coheed and Cambria opening the concert with 40-minutes of thrashing guitars.

Soundgarden - whose last album was their 1996 effort 'Down on the Upside', which reached number two in the US Billboard 200 chart - are working on a new record, which is thought to be planned for release sometime in 2012.

Earlier this month, Kim revealed the forthcoming album will sound "similar in a sense to 'Down on the Upside'".
