We waited 19 years for Soundgarden to return to the Twin Cities, and we didn't get to hear "Black Hole Sun?!" Oh what a travesty.

Actually, while some fans no doubt would cry foul over the band skipping one of its biggest hits at Saturday's concert at the Orpheum Theatre, I tought "Fell on Black Days" was enough boring mid-tempo hits for one night. The one glaring omission in my book was "Loud Love." But it's hard to argue when so many other old ear-bleeding rockers were thrown into the mix, and the mix itself was so wide and deep.

Click here for the full review of the show, a marathon of a performance in which the band proved to be in remarkably great shape given its long hiatus (that includes Chris Cornell's voice). Here's the 25-song set list:

Incessant Mace  /  Hunted Down  /  Flower  /  Outshined  /  Let Me Drown  /  Jesus Christ Pose  /  Gun  /  Rhinosaur  /  Hands All Over  /  Been Away Too Long  /  My Wave  /  Day I Tried to Live  /  Blood on the Valley Floor  /  Blow Up the Outside World  /  Fell on Black Days  /  Zero Chance  /  Non-State Actor  /  Eyelids Mouth  /  Drawing Flies  /  Ty Cobb  /  Fresh Tendrils  /  Superunknown              ENCORE: Spoong Man / Rusty Cage / Slaves & Bulldozers
