Seattle rock band, Soundgarden performing memorable songs since the 80's are on their way to Luxembourg soon. The date for your diary is May 28 and the place the Rockhal in Esch-sur-Alzette. Even better news is that you have the chance to win a pair of tickets with wort.lu/en, details at the end of this article.

Mention Soundgarden and there appear to be two camps of people: Those who are adoring fans, and those that know the songs but didn't realise they were Soundgarden. “Ahhh I love that song, that's who sings it,” seemed to be a reaction from a few in the wort.lu office.

Indeed the list of Soundgarden hits is long, some of their hits being Spoonman, The Day I Tried to Live, My Wave, Fell on Black Days and of course what is arguable their biggest hit Black Hole Sun.

The band actually split in 1997 and for 13 years the garden fell silent, until a triumphant message appeared on Chris Cornell's website (the band's front man) in 2010, "The knights of the soundtable ride again!"

A new album is now planned for 2012 that is said to “continue where the band left off” over a decade ago, and of course a tour which takes in Luxembourg's Rockhal along the way.

The big concert takes place on May 28 and tickets cost €48. For full details visit the Rockhal website.
