The surviving members of Soundgarden made a surprise appearance during Americana musician Brandi Carlile‘s show at Washington State’s famed Gorge Amphitheatre over the weekend.
Carlile invited Kim Thayil, Matt Cameron and Ben Shepherd on stage to perform the Soundgarden songs “Black Hole Sun” and “Searching with My Good Eye Closed.” The trio had previously joined Carlile to record studio versions of both tracks for a Record Store Day single last fall.
“Welcome back to the Gorge, my friends in Soundgarden!” Carlile said in introducing the grunge legends. “Are you ready to sing and scream for one of the best rock ‘n’ roll bands in the world?”
Carlile previously sang “Black Hole Sun” at the 2019 Chris Cornell tribute concert. She also performed that night with Temple of the Dog and Audioslave.
