It was the band’s first live appearance together since September 2011, having previously reunited live in 2003 and 2009 also.

Speaking of the reunion tour, Cornell said in a statement; “We wanted to do the one thing we never got to do… play shows and see what it feels like to be the band that we walked away from 25 years ago.”

He continued, “This is something no one has ever seen. We wanted to stop and recognise that we did this and pay homage.”

The band play the following dates:

New York, Madison Square Garden (November 7)
San Francisco, Bill Graham Civic Center (November 11)
