Soundgarden Give Stellar Performance to Sold Out New York City Crowd

Grunge icons Soundgarden rocked New York’s socks off as they performed to a lucky sold out crowd at Hammerstein Ballroom last night (Jan. 22).

The band kicked off their 26 song set with ‘Jesus Christ Pose’ and ‘Spoonman’ which got fans singing with frontman Chris Cornell whose vocals were impeccable. They played other classics such as ‘Outshined,’ ‘Fell On Black Days,’ ‘Burden In My Hand’ just to name a few.

Soundgarden also played songs they haven’t performed in a long time such as ‘Rhinosaur’ and their live debut of ‘Zero Chance’ both off of their 1996 album ‘Down on the Upside.’

A few new tunes off of their latest release ‘King Animal’ made it onto the setlist as well including ‘Been Away Too Long,’ ‘By Crooked Steps’ and ‘Taree.’ The band’s connection onstage was evident and contagious. They ended the night with their encore which consisted of three songs ‘Ugly Truth,’ ‘Rusty Cage’ and ‘Beyond The Wheel.’

Soundgarden members were all in tune in more ways than one, with guitarist Kim Thayil’s commanding riffs, Ben Shepherd’s deep bass lines, Matt Cameron’s thunderous drum patterns and Cornell’s powerful raspy vocals all resonating throughout the entire venue and into the minds and hearts of Soundgarden fans.
