Black hole sun, won't you come and wash away the rain? What an absolutely perfect sentiment for a soggy day like today. Well, except for the black hole part -- not even sure what that means exactly, black hole sun. Do you know? Anyhow, just got word that Soundgarden, authors of that curious tune, are coming to Red Rocks on Monday, July 18. So there. Might be getting it confused with Faith No More (surely some of you old-schoolers remember?), but didn't Soundgarden get greeted with upraised middle fingers on its first trip to the Mile High City?

The Red Rocks show in July is only one of four dates that have been announced so far on the upcoming summer tour of the reconvened band, which is reportedly working on a new album, its first since the mid-'90s. Tickets for the show ($59.50-$65.50) officially go on sale Friday, April 22 (but if you're a member of the Soundgarden fan club, you can get in on a special pre-sale on Monday, April 18).

I think the first time Soundgarden came to Denver was on the Ultramega Ok tour and played Rock Island. Or maybe it was the Garage. They headlined so I don't think there were a lot of middle fingers being raised. I do remember at the last Denver Soundgarden show at the Mammoth in 96 the crowd hated both Tenderloin and Rocket From The Crypt. Both great bands. The crowd was full of people who only knew SG from KBPI though so I wasn't too surprised.

I think you might be thinking of Alice in Chains who, as I recall, got booed off the stage during Monsters of Rock some time during their Facelift era.

I believe the Alice In Chains incident you're referring to was during Clash of the Titans at Red Rocks with Pantera, maybe? For whatever reason, I'm thinking Soundgarden gig I'm referring to was at the Atzlan. @SxPxDxCx, does that sound right? The more I think about it, the Faith No More show was opening for Sacred Reich at Club Maxx -- or maybe that was the Aztlan. Dunno. Been too long.

AIC didn't receive a warm welcome at Redrocks but I would hardly say that they got booed off the stage. I never saw Soundgarden at the Aztlan but the could have played there. First time I saw them was at the Colorado Indoor Sports Complex on the Loud Love tour. 2x actually. Once with Prong and Voivod and then again with Danzig and COC. Been a really long time ago.
