Soundgarden along with The Chris Cornell Estate, UMe and Artists Den, the critically acclaimed music series best known for presenting intimate concerts by extraordinary artists in non-traditional settings, announced an unprecedented line-up of immersive events and a suite of products titled Soundgarden: Live from the Artists Den.
The events will feature a reimagined experience of Artists Den’s previous concert taping of legendary Seattle rock band Soundgarden and beloved lead singer and songwriter Chris Cornell, with stops in Los Angeles and New York, as well as a special screening in Seattle.
The concert has become the all-time most requested Soundgarden live show for an official release. The 29 song, nearly two-and-a-half-hour show, encompasses the band’s rich musical legacy, spanning their early years with “Hunted Down,” through their monumental albums “Badmotorfinger” and “Superunknown” respectively with “Outshined” and “Black Hole Sun.”
Six years following the original taping, Artists Den in partnership with UMe, will release a selection of products for Soundgarden:Live from the Artists Den. The limited-edition Super Deluxe box will feature the complete 29-song concert film in 5.1 surround sound and stereo on Blu-ray, and more than 30 minutes of bonus interviews with the band, in addition to four black 180-gram audiophile LPs, 2CDs, a 40-page photo book, four band member lithos, and replica artist all-access pass and ticket stub from the original show. Additional products scheduled for release include: 4LP 180-gram audiophile black vinyl, limited edition 4LP colour vinyl (each disc will feature a unique combination of splattered colours), Blu-ray and 2CD.
In advance of the album release, Artists Den will present Soundgarden: Live from the Artists Den immersive events of the full 29 song show in New York and Los Angeles, as well as an additional screening in Seattle.
The stops in New York and Los Angeles will each showcase 12 HD camera angles customized for an immersive multi-screen viewing experience. A live remix of the original multitrack 48-channel audio in L-ISA Immersive Hyperreal Sound, a groundbreaking ultra-high resolution audio technology from L-Acoustics, offers fans the thrill of connecting with the band’s repertoire in vivid fidelity. The 360˚ real-time mix synced to on-screen footage and further complemented by a stunning light show promises to immerse the audience in a truly unique experience, for one night only in each city.
