    Soundgarden's 20th Anniversary 'Superunknown' Concert to be Broadcast on Howard Stern (Exclusive)
    [​IMG]
    In a first for the Sirius XM host, the band's 1994 masterpiece will be played live in its entirety on Howard 101.



    For the first time, Howard Stern's SiriusXM channel, Howard 101, will exclusively broadcast a concert, and it's a big one: Soundgarden's June 2 Superunknown show presented by Citi at New York's Webster Hall, slated to air June 13 at 10 pm ET.

    The Chris Cornell-fronted Soundgarden, whose Superunknown album debuted at No. 1 on Billboard in 1994 and won Grammy Awards for singles "Black Hole Sun" and "Spoonman," sold over 9 million copies of their influential masterpiece and is ranked near the top of Seattle's grunge heap by most critics, alongside Pearl Jam and Nirvana. "When Nirvana started out, Soundgarden was huge, and they were like, 'We're not worthy,' " said Cameron Crowe in 1992.


    But Soundgarden never played the album live until SXSW in Austin on March 13. The Webster Hall show will be their second performance of Superunknown, which will be reissued with many rarities on June 3 via A&M Records/UME. As the record's producer, Michael Beinhorn, told Billboard in 1994, Superunknown is "both incredibly dense and overwhelmingly present. There is a tangible sense of air being moved."

    Soundgarden's North American tour with fellow 1994 breakout band Nine Inch Nails begins July 12.

    Apparently since they cannot get anyone to listen to Howard related material on Howard 101, they are making that channel the special event channel. Get rockers who are appealing to Howard's supposed demographic to get them to listen to Howard again.

    Is the wigged fraud shelling out his marbles in an attempt to prank Sirius into thinking he is a company man/partner?

    Sounds like someone is desperate to bring his old fans (hetero-sexual males who at this point are between 30-50) back into the fold.

    This should be a kick ass broadcast though, as long as Howard has nothing to do with it other then it being on his channels.

    Hopefully they play it on H100 at the same time like they did with the Birthday bash and Billy Joel.

    Just shows he needs content on the channels. Just hire some new blood, like Kidd Chriss. I'd even take Abe Cannon back.

    Hire other talent means Howard has to part with his own marbles.
    More important is that other talent might do better radio....Stern would never tolerate that!

    Will Howard be the MC? "You know Robin, Chris Cornell adopted one of Beth's foster kittens from NSAL."

    Chris Cornell performed in studio 69.
    At the end of one of his songs Howard groans and says ...'I want you' ......to him.....:jj:

    What a joke! Sirius has plenty of music channels, why broadcast this on H101? The only possible reason is that Howard is too cheap, lazy, and untalented to provide content for his own channels. H101 is a disaster and a disgrace, Howard should just admit he can't handle the job and retire. It wouldn't be any more embarrassing than hyping the crap he broadcasts now and claiming it's "radio gold".
