Temple Of The Dog’s first ever tour sold out in seconds on Ticketmaster – leading angry fans to express their rage on social media.

Fans complained that there were no tickets left on the webstore less than a minute after they went on sale at 12pm on Friday – but that third-party ticket websites had plenty to sell shortly after.

Ticketmaster have apologised to those who missed out on tickets, saying: “For high demand events, tons of people try purchasing from the limited inventory and tickets go quickly.”

Temple Of The Dog announced their reunion last month and confirmed a run of five US shows, taking in Philadelphia, New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Seattle in November.

The band, formed by Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell and Pearl Jam’s Stone Gossard, Jeff Ament, Mike McCready and Eddie Vedder, also won control over their 1991 master tapes last year following a drawn-out legal battle.

The upcoming reissue of their self-titled debut album will feature previously unreleased material.

Former news desk member Christina joined the team in late 2015 and although her time working on online rock news was fairly brief, she made a huge impact by contributing close to 1500 stories. Christina also interviewed artists including Deftones frontman Chino Moreno and worked at the Download festival. In late 2016, Christina left rock journalism to pursue a career in current affairs. That's proved to be a massive success and in 2021, she was named Local Weekly Feature Writer of the Year at the Scottish Press Awards.
