An "audio review" of the April 16 concert from GrungeReport.net:

Vocalist Chris Cornell, guitarist Kim Thayil, bassist Ben Shepherd and drummer Matt Cameron have been rehearsing in Seattle in recent weeks as a precursor to their first confirmed reunion performance at Lollapalooza in Chicago in early August.

Reports of SOUNDGARDEN's involvement in the annual festival had been circulating for weeks. That was the first show confirmed by the band since a New Year's Day post by singer Chris Cornell hinted that the iconic Seattle grunge act was getting back together after a split that began in the spring of 1997.

The rest of SOUNDGARDEN's plans, including more shows or a full tour, remain in the dark right now. Drummer Matt Cameron also has summertime commitments with PEARL JAM, of which he has been a member for 12 years.

Cornell recorded three albums with AUDIOSLAVE and three records on his own since SOUNDGARDEN disbanded, but his last solo effort, 2009's "Scream", was blasted by critics and fans for its urban pop production and bombed saleswise.

The other two members of the band, guitarist Kim Thayil and bassist Ben Shepherd, have kept lower profiles, although they and Cameron jammed together last year at a Seattle club.
