AUSTIN, Texas - Soundgarden will celebrate the 20th anniversary of its landmark album "Superunknown" at South By Southwest.

The Seattle grunge rockers will play "Superunknown" front to back for the first time March 13 when they headline the third night of the iTunes Festival in Austin, Texas.

Soundgarden members Chris Cornell, Matt Cameron, Kim Thayil and Ben Shepherd recently announced plans for a multi-disc reissue of "Superunknown" on June 3 with preorders available March 11. The multiplatinum album included the Grammy Award-winning hits "Black Hole Sun" and "Spoonman" and debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, eventually selling more than 5 million copies in the U.S.

The iTunes Festival features five nights of performances during the annual SXSW music conference. Other performers include Coldplay and Keith Urban.
