Early '90s Rockers Soul Asylum Coming To MGM Northfield Park
Venerable '90s outfit Soul Asylum will be bringing their "Up Close and Acoustic" tour to MGM Northfield Park's Neon Room next Saturday, August 17th. Billed as a more intimate, smaller venue tour, somewhat reminiscent of the old MTV Unplugged series of concerts back in the early 1990s. this is sure to be a great night of Grunge-era tunes.
Founded in Minneapolis in 1981, the outfit came to prominence in 1992 with the release of Grave Diggers Union, their most popular album. The album produced an immensely popular and socially-active song, "Runaway Train," which won the Grammy for "Best Rock Song" at the 1994 edition of those awards.
Undergoing lineup changes and personal tragedy (the death of original bassist Karl Mueller in 2005), the band has managed to produce some solid music in the last twenty years. Saturday's show will mark Soul Asylum's first area appearance in several years.
