Soundgarden for US iTunes festival

Soundgarden will celebrate the 20th anniversary of their landmark album Superunknown at the South by Southwest festival in the US.

The grunge rockers will play Superunknown from front to back for the first time on March 13, when they headline the third night of the iTunes festival in Austin, Texas.

Soundgarden members Chris Cornell, Matt Cameron, Kim Thayil and Ben Shepherd recently announced plans for a multi-disc reissue of the record on June 3, with pre-orders available on March 11.

The iTunes festival features five nights of performances during the annual SXSW music conference.

Other performers include Coldplay and Keith Urban.

The popular free concert series has been held in London for the past seven years but it will be the first time it has been held in America.
