A radio DJ from Seattle told me that after an interview with one of the band members they revealed to him that both bands management were discussing the bands doing a coheadline tour of the US in early 2013. Not sure if it made it past the discussion stages or not, but if so the tour was to be announced before Thanksgiving in time for people to order tickets for the holidays. Thought I would pass this along.

Yes it would. The rumor was Pearl Jam instead of AiC but from what I understand that was a rumor that was made up and nothing more.

Will go. Took long enough for this tour to happen since the Soundgarden reunion.


Wonder if this means there's a new AIC album?

I asked that as well and he said it was near completion. I bet it drops before the tour and is announced the day the Soundgarden album is released but that is just a guess.

I'd go only if it was a co-headlining tour with no openers and each band did at least an hour and a half.

Its true. We've had a few disagreements, words, whatever you want to call it in the past but I moved on & thought that was over with until this latest half assed attempt to make me look bad. Like I'm just going to use the word of Joe Fan and not investigate it just a little bit??? I guess next you'll want me to post video footage of me emailing with the DJ for your satisfaction, right?

Once again I'll turn my cheek and offer an olive branch of goodwill. Everyone please check out www.TomCouture.com for some awesome concert pictures from one of our very own at MetalSetLists.com.

If this does happen, hopefully there's no opener and both bands are able to do full headlining sets.

Obviously if it's 1992 I know the answer to this...But in 2012 I wonder if Soundgarden & AIC could pull off doing actual arenas? Or if it would be a large theater tour?

Last time Soundgarden played here they played UIC Pavilion which holds 7,000 people and I think the show was nearly sold out.

I don't know of the size of the crowds but I do know that the AIC/Deftones/Mastodon tour from a few years ago was playing to some arenas, w/ that logic wouldn't it be an automatic w/ Soundgarden being bigger than those other 2 bands, that they could pull off arenas?

I don't doubt for a second that this tour couldn't fill arenas. There's still a lot of people out there who want to see Soundgarden since the reunion and AIC had a huge comeback with their last album. Both bands popularity is still quite high, anything less than booking them in the bigger arenas/amphitheaters is just idiotic.

This tour would fill arenas. Throw in a quality opening act (Melvins, Clutch, Down, Opeth) and it would be one of the best tours in recent memory.

I think each band would play about 12 songs with or without an opening act.

I think it'd be higher than that. On BlackDiamondSkye AIC got 16 in KC and got around that same number all tour. Soundgarden was pulling out 18-22 on their NA tour earlier this year. 12 seems like it would be a little low for both.

In major markets, definitely.

The BlackDiamondSkye tour in 2009 played at Madison Square Garden and Soundgarden played to over 14,000 people this summer in Mansfield, MA.

niFor sure it would be an arena tour, as Soundgarden can headline arenas here without AIC.

I would go to this, but anything that takes away time from Soungarden isn't good. I am not a big fan of co-headlining tours.

I agree.

I bet that Soundgarden would close out each show. They were a bit more popular than AiC back in the day and with this being their first reunion tour with a new album they would likely play last. I hate to say that cause AiC is one of my absolute favorite bands.

I can't see either band playing more than 15 songs tops. It isn't like the BDS tour. AiC and Soundgarden are both relatively close in terms of popularity and headliner status. I bet their set length will be identical. I also think they will have an opening act who will play for about 30 to 45 minutes. A lot of bands would be willing to pay to play in the opening slot for both of those bands.

Of course Soundgarden would close each show without question.

Hoping this tour is true.

Mark Lanegan Band would be the perfect opener for this.

I think The Melvins would be the perfect opening band. Keeping it all Seattle based. Down would be another good choice as well.

I talked to a member of the AiC camp. He told me the tour was being negotiated when some problems occured involving AiC's next album being delayed and the band decided to not do the tour.

Well shit. As long as its not a co headline w/ someone shitty like Pearl Jam I will still be happy.

There's a lot of behind the scenes bullshit in the music buisness. It could be any number of things. I'm OK with this tour not happening. It means we'll get the chance to see both bands do headlining tours of their own instead of shorter sets that touring together would bring.

Very true. I hope that the album is as good as possible and I am willing to accept a few delays to ensure it is quality. It is also possible the band could have landed on a US festival tour this summer and this could be the reason for not touring with Soundgarden imo.

:agree:

Despite directly contradicting my above post, I'd really prefer seeing AiC doing a longer set (please do the 2006 fall setlist again...) as opposed to a coheadlining one.

...Or Mayhem/Uproar. That works too.
