There are plenty of special moments in the history of music performance. If you were a modern day 90's alt-nation grunge warrior then no doubt the music of Pearl Jam and Soundgarden made your playlist. Temple of the Dog are a super group featuring members of both of those bands, and they performed for the first time since the release of their only self-titled album recorded 25 years ago.

For opening night at Philadelphia's legendary Tower Theatre, the group began with "Say Hello to Heaven" and from there, the rest of the evening's set list revolved around music from Temple of the Dog, Mother Love Bone, and Chris Cornell. Throw in a couple of cover songs from led Zeppelin, The Cure, and Black Sabbath as well.

Formed at the time with Soundgarden's Chris Cornell and Matt Cameron and Pearl Jam's Stone Gossard, Mike McCready and Jeff Ament, the band was originally going to record a tribute to Chris Cornell's roommate and good friend Andrew Wood who passed away from a heroin overdose. The band will be performing 8 shows only and Cornell was quoted as saying "We wanted to do the one thing we never go to do: play shows and see what it feels like to be the band that we walked away from 25 years ago."

We may have had to wait all that time, but oh was it worth it.
