By Andy Kahn Nov 5, 2016 7:25 am PDT

Last night the Tower Theatre in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania hosted the opening show of the long awaited first Temple Of The Dog tour. The band played several songs from their lone debut album as well as a number of Mother Love Bone tracks and choice covers.

Originally formed over 25 years ago in the wake of the death of Mother Love Bone frontman Andy Wood, the group touring together features bassist Jeff Ament and guitarists Stone Gossard and Mike McCready of Pearl Jam, Soundgarden vocalist Chris Cornell and drummer Matt Cameron who performs with both Soundgarden and Pearl Jam. A self-titled Temple Of The Dog album originally released in 1991 was recently reissued to mark its 25th anniversary and the LP’s opening track “Say Hello 2 Heaven” also opened the first night of their first-ever tour.

Each of the other nine tracks on Temple Of The Dog were performed Friday night, including the well-known “Hunger Strike” and “Pushin Forward Back.” Mother Love Bone, Ament and Gossard’s former band, was represented throughout the main set with takes on “Stardog Champion,” “Stargazer,” “Heartshine” and “Holly Roller” as well as the first song of the encore, “Man Of Golden Worlds.”

Temple Of The Dog also incorporated covers by the likes of Harry Nilsson, Free, David Bowie, Led Zeppelin, Syd Barrett, The Cure and Black Sabbath. The supergroup returns to the Tower Theatre for a second performance tonight. The entire opening night at the venue was captured by aerofan2007 and can be viewed in the videos below:
