    This is going to be streamed. Can’t wait.

    This will kick so much ass. I never understood why Billy Corgan and so many other fans of music hated it when a band plays an album in its entirety. Sure as hell beats a greatest hits setlist by any day

    Will Matt be playing drums????

  • ccfanpage

    Yes he will – see posts on SG official sites/socials.

  • Mango

    Methinks Matt be on drums. @iTunesFestival posted a promo pic with the Matt in it & Pearl Jam doesn’t have any tour dates booked until Europe in June.

  • Plenty Of Gum

    Nice can’t wait to hear “Limo Wreck” and the other songs that are just as good as any song they have ever done.

  • Raj

    Cool, lucky fans in Austin. That’s good if Matt is back on drums, wouldn’t be the same without him.

  • poptart

    Excellent!

  • Mike

    I know Matt will be playing with Soundgarden here but did I miss the announcement of who is gonna replace him later this year?

  • jim garturt

    With out Matt it wouldn’t even be right as he made the album extra special. His drumming is some of the best of his career on Superunknown.

    Plus the 3 songs Mailman, Limo Wreck, Fresh Tendrils are some of the best ever and have his unique sound, making them one reason for SU being so good.
