Mad Season performed for the first time in nearly 20 years at Benayora Hall in Seattle with the Seattle Symphony for the Sonic Evolution concert. The setlist is a bit complicated, as portions of Mad Season’s set featured the Seattle Symphony, and there was also a first portion of the show featuring new compositions from Mike McCready, with Matt Cameron playing as well.
The core lineup for the Mad Season set was Mike McCready, Barrett Martin, Chris Cornell, and Duff McKagan. Kim Virant, Matt Cameron, and Jeff Angell were guest performers on select songs. For the Temple of the Dog tracks, Stone Gossard, Jeff Ament, and Matt Cameron took the stage to play with Chris Cornell and Mike McCready. The show closed with Alice In Chains drummer Sean Kinney joining for “All Alone,” which also featured a recording of Layne Staley’s voice. We will tweak the setlist as more information comes in.
