Temple of the Dog Tickets Are Being Sold For Shocking Prices


MyNorthwest is reporting that Temple of the Dog tickets are being sold for shocking prices by scalpers on the secondary market.

MyNorthwest writes, “But if you want tickets now, you’ll have to pay at least $418 (as of this posting). Secondary sales websites are listing Temple of the Dog tickets for hundreds of dollars. SeatGeek has them starting at $529, going up to $2,318 for more optimal seating. VividSeats has them for $418, going up to $2,250. Stubhub has tickets starting at $457 — and the most expensive ticket is $10,000.”

They added, “And the hometown show for the Seattle band is running far more expensive than the any of the other shows. Tickets for the show in Philadelphia are now starting at $250 on StubHub. It’s $79 for Madison Square Garden in New York. And $89 for the San Francisco show on VividSeats. There are even Temple of the Dog tickets going for $25 on SeatGeek for the Los Angeles show at The Forum.”

Mike McCready told Team Rock in a recent interview that there ‘hasn’t been any discussion’ surrounding Eddie Vedder participating in Temple of the Dog’s reunion tour.

“I haven’t heard whether he’s going to be a part of this or not. I would love it if Eddie would do it. It’s kind of up to him and Chris [Cornell] but there hasn’t been any discussion about it so far.”

McCready also discussed songs he is excited to play on the Temple of the Dog reunion tour.

“I’m totally excited about it. Reach Down, I get to have a big old solo on it. I’ve gotten to be a better guitarist hopefully than I was 25 years ago. I want to do a different take on that. And in terms of doing covers I think it’ll be exciting. I want to play Love Bone songs, I’m hoping that’s going to be part of it. To bring those songs to life, the Love Bone songs from Apple, and having Chris sing Stardog Champion or any of these great songs, will be poignant and, I think, important to people.”

He also revealed that Jeff Ament asked Chris Cornell about doing a Temple of the Dog reunion tour at Mad Season’s reunion show in January 2015.

“Over the years I’ve heard hundreds of people come up to me to say how much this record means to them, and it has grown into this mythical thing. That’s why we’re going to go out and tour and try to play these songs for the first time properly. We’ve only done a handful of shows in the beginning and then we’ve done a couple here and there with Chris since. We did a Mad Season & Seattle Symphony show that I put together two years ago, and Chris was singing some of Layne [Staley]’s old lyrics. And when we did some Temple songs, and Jeff and Stone came out and we did Reach Down and Say Hello 2 Heaven, and the crowd response was immense. We were surprised with how fast the tickets sold [for the Temple shows], but it has turned into something that’s bigger than all of us.”
