The heyday of the American group Soundgarden fell on the first half of the 1990s when musicians were considered perhaps the main “competitors” of the legendary Nirvana (and we must admit that it was quite deservedly) in the popular musical direction – “grunge”. Founded in 1984 in Seattle by Chris Cornell the band has sold over twenty million of their disks before in 1997 the musicians stoped cooperation because of creative differences, – in any event the official version says so.
At the end of 2009 Soundgarden began its second life after the band’s frontman Chris Cornell and guitarist Kim Tayil decided to return to the common creative work. New members are also Matt Cameron and Ben Shepherd. And a new studio album «Live On i5», published in 2011, became the result of this reunion. In addition, the band begins their world tour in support of their new album.
This spring Soundgarden plans to give dozens of concerts in Europe and one of them will take place in Paris at the concert complex «Zenith» on May 25. Ticket sales have already started, the price is from 56 euros.
