The grunge gods hit Los Angeles' Wiltern Theatre for a triumphant, three-night close to their month-long North American trek.
Been Away Too Long
Soundgarden's Feb. 16 show was the second of three nights at Los Angeles' Wiltern Theatre and it was clear that many fans had tickets to more than one performance over the weekend.
Although the band's current tour is in support of their recent King Animal album, Soundgarden offered a cohesive set that combined the recent tracks with older favorites.
Beyond the Wheel
The band wrapped up its Saturday night set at the Wiltern with a raucous three-song encore, finally bringing the lengthy show to a close with "Beyond the Wheel."
By Crooked Steps
Soundgarden guitarist Kim Thayil took on a more low-key role for the Wiltern performance, letting his guitar work rather than onstage antics do the talking.
Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell got intimate with the Wiltern Theatre audience for hit singles like "Spoonman" and "Rusty Cage."
Hands All Over
Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell was most evocative on tracks where he laid down his guitar and moved around the Wiltern stage with the microphone, showcasing his signature grungy howl.
Jesus Christ Pose
Soundgarden bassist Ben Shepherd offered a notably dynamic performance at the Wiltern, particularly on numbers like "Jesus Christ Pose" and "Ty Cobb," which he had a significant role in writing.
Live to Rise
On the second to last night of their U.S. tour, Soundgarden performed an extensive set of old and new material, but left out their biggest hit, 1994's "Black Hole Sun."
