Sing along everybody: This fall we're gonna party like it's ninety ninety one. That's because iconic grunge super-group Temple of the Dog has announced a five-stop mini tour that includes a Nov. 20 stop at Seattle's Paramount Theatre. 

The group formed in 1990 from the ashes of Mother Love Bone, following the death of front man Andrew Wood and months before grunge mania spread around the globe. It has reunited to celebrate the 25th anniversary of it's only album, the self-titled “Temple of the Dog” which spawned hits “Hunger Strike” and “Say Hello 2 Heaven.”

The lineup for this tour will include Soundgarden's Chris Cornell, Pearl Jam's Stone Gossard, Jeff Ament and Mike McCready and Matt Cameron, who plays drums for both bands. There has been no word yet on whether Pearl Jam vocalist Eddie Vedder might be involved. But hey, what's he got goin' on for Nov. 20?

The Seattle show will start at 8 p.m. Tickets will go on sale to the general public at noon on Friday, July 29, at a cost of $94.25. Fans will want to book mark this page and have their mouse clicker finger ready, because it's bound to sell out fast.
