Soundgarden Set List Big Day Out 2012
Auckland January 20th
Mount Smart Stadium
We'll the kings of grunge that are still living (RIP Kurt, Justin Beiber mourns you) are back at the Big Day Out for what turned out to be the last festival at the Mount Smart Stadium.
Chris Cornell turned up in NZ late last year to perform acoustically and it was well received by the punters. He mentioned during that gig the prospect of Soundgarden doing a BDO show and that was enough to get me to Auckland (and the fact Noel Gallagher was playing too plus that they dropped Kanye West from the line up) .
This year's BDO was almost a low key event, lets face it, Soundgarden and the guy from Oasis were the only artists who have had the record sales and a place in rock history that the rest of the other performers can dream of.
So with perhaps one last cup of sorrow, here's Soundgarden's final Big Day Out Set List:
Searching With My Good Eye Closed
Let Me Drown
Jesus Christ Pose
Blow Up the Outside World
The Day I Tried to Live
Fell on Black Days
Black Hole Sun
Room a Thousand Years Wide
Slaves & Bulldozers
