13. Rowing

SOUNDGARDEN will perform at the legendary Electric Lady Studios in New York City as part of SiriusXM's Town Hall series which will also feature an intimate question-and-answer session moderated by FOO FIGHTERS drummer Taylor Hawkins. It will take place today (Wednesday, November 14) and will air on Pearl Jam Radio, channel 22, on Friday, November 16 at 6:00 p.m. ET.

SOUNDGARDEN singer Chris Cornell was joined by the other three members of the band for a surprise six-song set during Cornell's solo show on Monday night (November 12) at Bowery Ballroom in New York City. According to Brooklyn Vegan, the full band played six songs: "Fell On Black Days", "Blow Up The Outside World", "Black Hole Sun", "Outshined" and new tunes "Halfway There" and "Black Saturday".

Earlier in the evening, the band played a 10-song set for the "Live On Letterman" webcast, while also taping an appearance on "Late Show With David Letterman" which aired that night.

SOUNDGARDEN reunited in 2010 after a 13-year break, releasing a retrospective collection called "Telephantasm" and a concert album titled "Live On I-5".
