Soundgarden Says Opening For NIN Makes Sense

(Classic Rock) Soundgarden will open for Nine Inch Nails on the bands' upcoming double-header US tour - and Kim Thayil believes it makes perfect sense. The outfits recently confirmed plans to hit the road together, with a string of shows kicking off in Las Vegas on July 19 and ending in Hollywood on August 25.

Now Soundgarden guitarist Thayil has explained why the running order will see his band playing ahead of Trent Reznor and co. He tells DC101 (via Blabbermouth): "It makes sense. Nine Inch Nails is a production-heavy band - amazing lights, lasers. They use a lot of production both in the audio performance and the visual performance.

"We're more of a live rock act. If we were to play after them it would be a long wait while they struck all their gear and cleared the stage for us. It's a lot easier to play before them." more on this story
