So What Is Temple of the Dog Doing in Concert When They Run Out of Songs?

Temple of the Dog (the retroactive supergroup featuring members of Pearl Jam and Soundgarden) is on tour for the first time in its existence (sadly minus Eddie Vedder), performing songs from their one-and-only album, a self-titled thing released on April 16, 1991, that features 10 songs that run for a grand total of 54 minutes and 59 seconds.

Great. After they’re done playing that, bantering about on stage and launching into some extended jams, what else are they doing? Covers, for one. Michael forwards this nod to the Cure that was busted out in Philadelphia Friday night (November 4).

They also played some Sabbath…

…as well as Zeppelin (“Achilles’ Last Stand”) and a few others. Good to know, I guess.

A full rundown of songs from the Philly concert can be found here.
