Well, now we hear they'll be playing at The Vic on August 5 in an official Lollapalooza pre-show, and while that doesn't change pur views on them playing Lollapalooza it does pique our interest. Even back in the day we never had a chance to see them in a space as small as The Vic so we'd be interested to see if a smaller room and a closer proximity to the fans might yank forth a more inspired performance from the band than an appearance on a huge outdoor stage. We suspect it should.
If you want to go the only way to get tickets is by winning a chance to purchase them via a random drawing. Register here and make sure you check off the box that says "Include me in the August 5th Vic Theater Chicago drawing." Tickets will only be sold in pairs and are non-transferable. Oh, and the show is 18+. If you want in, hurry, since winners will be notified on Friday morning.
UPDATE: According to a post in the Soundgarden forum, tickets will be $100 a pair.
