SG

Nine Inch Nails in Japan in February (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
NIN

Holy 1994. Soundgarden and Nine Inch Nails have both hinted that they're going on a co-headlining tour of the US and Canada this summer. Though nothing has officially been announced, Stereogum points to a fan forum, Echoing the Sound, which has done some digging and compiled a tentative list of the venues the tour will hit. Those include NYC-area shows at Nikon at Jones Beach Theater in Wantagh, NY and PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, NJ. The exact dates that they will play said venues have not been announced yet, but we'll keep you updated. Tickets will be available at some point via Ticketmaster. Browse that list of venues below.

Both Soundgarden and Nine Inch Nails celebrated 20th anniversaries of albums this past Saturday (3/8), Superunknown and The Downward Spiral, respectively, and Soundgarden will continue that celebration by performing the album in full at the iTunes Festival at SXSW on Thursday (3/13). If you'll be in Austin this week, you can check that out at ACL Live at the Moody Theater, and if you're staying home, it will stream live via the iTunes store.

47 year olds are excited.

Both bands need to call it a day and move on.

Sad.

Fuck off man, both bands are still great (even if the Soundgarden release in 2012 was a little uneven). Should be a great show.

P.S Jones Beach finally allows a GA pit which is cool
P.P.S Jones Beach still does not sell booze, which is not cool.

Do your drinking in the Jones Beach parking lot like everyone else

3:23 still thinks Trent Reznor had really cool, long hair and wished he'd grow it back.

The cops tolerate drinking in the parking lot of Jones beach as long as you keep it in a "red" cup and don't act like a fucking asshole which may be a challenge to most of the people who frequent this site .

Remember when NIN retired from touring? Sure was short-lived. Good ol' Twent needs his money.

I'll go to the Jones Beach show just for the Heavy Metal Parking Lot atmosphere

I'll trade Soundgarden for Queens of the Stone Age, please.

3:47- I am reasonably certain that Trent is far from broke.

Saw the NIN/Jane's Addiction show at Jones Beach a few years back. Easily the worst NIN show of the 5 or so I've seen. The sun was up for most of their performance . . . how you gonna bring the darkness when the sun is still up? I'd say avoid this if NIN is opening

Do you know why so many thirty- and forty-somethings nowadays yearn for the era when grunge ruled America? It’s because back then it was fashionable to be a loser. You could roll out of bed in yesterday’s clothes, tell your dad to go fuck himself, and head to the coffee joint to peer at your stubbly reflection in some thrillingly disheveled girl’s glasses. It was like being a hippie, except you didn’t have to care about anything (except maybe AIDS or abortion, and even then, only when it was pragmatically necessary to care). It was like being a punk, but you didn’t have to worry about being uncool, because everybody was a loser. The music was specially engineered to sound good when listened to from big green bong water-stained couches with ripped upholstery. You didn’t have to worry too much when your hero died of a heroin overdose, because the Pacific Northwest was a bottomless reservoir of untapped indie talent, and somebody even more rugged would step up to fill your hero’s army boots.

Nadir: The band names. Mudhoney, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden… probably the worst band-naming period in history, with the possible exception of the post-grunge scene (Hoobastank has them all beat).

David Thorpe is a terrible writer and it's a little sad someone posts bits of his old SA columns on here. Grow up.

Nah, I don't really care about his appearance. Glad he's healthy now.

Just announced, Stone Temple Pilots are the openers

age envy is common among city boyz and galz. It's sad to see but if I were young and in NYC I'd kill myself in front of some brunching city parentz and kidz. "HAVE MY LIFE WITH YOUR MIMOSA!"

I'll take either one of these bands over any of today's wimpy, neutered, non-original so-called indie-rock (that term should have died years ago)garbage. NIN at Barclays was easily one of the best shows out of the 200 or so that I saw last year. You really gotta laugh at the morons who post here. Lots of young people at recent NIN & Soundgarden shows. Rock fans as opposed to dopey, bearded poseurs with their cellphones attached to their hands.

I really wish people had to register for these comments, include a photo and age. THEN we'd REALLY be able to go at it.

Also, this comment was probably written by someone who is 23 (i.e. 3 in 1994).

"14 year old girl" comment was written by a 37 year old. One who is far better looking than you and whomever you be fucking. Thanx fer playing, tho, chump!

Oh, and that amazing person above has also seen both of these bands live. Hope you like backing tapes and bullshit songs like "Black Hole Sun." Grunge-psych? Not.

Posted by Anonymous | March 11, 2014 12:34 PM

The unified focused energy of the crowd being directed by a band in top tight shape is an experience which can move you - life musis does this to people and if both these bands are no that is the type of show it will be - clear your mind and let the music take you over - if you are reading this you enjoy NIN and soundgarden do not take away from their power to lead and exert energy -- buy your tickets - drink your beers, put your cell phone away and let the music take you over

Tours like this are awful for fans of one band. If they co-headline and switch off, then you go early and leave late or leave early and go late.

If Frowngarden does Superunknown in full it might be worth it.

Posted by ShannonPetitSpake | March 14, 2014 4:01 PM

Soundgarden? Iwe.

Posted by notlovinit | March 16, 2014 11:22 AM

LOL look at all the losers on here trying to crack on NIN and Soundgarden and their fans. Some clueless, know-it-all jerkoff even tried to insult the whole geunge movement. Guess what, little man? If you weren't there, you don't know, so shut your ignorant mouth. If you don't like them, don't go to the show and go see whatever lame ass bands you prefer. Nothing worse than a dipshit who doesn't know music and probably can't even play an E chord acting like he's got some kind of credibility as a music critic. Get off this site then and go listen to your Lil Wayne or your Justin Bieber and shut your dumb ass, bitch ass mouth.
