Nine Inch Nails and Soundgarden may be planning a double headlining concert.

As the PRP is reporting, a listing for an August 17th show featuring both bands at the Gexa Energy Pavilion in Dallas briefly appeared on Live Nation. There is no word on whether the performance would be a one-off or a string of dates.

Soundgarden are set to tour later this month. As the website notes, their schedule is thought to be somewhat limited by drummer Matt Cameron's commitment to Pearl Jam. Dates are as follows:

    I'd love to hear a cool co-headlining name. Still wouldn't be as cool as the Jane's Addiction NIN co-headlining name (NIN-JA)
    hmmm....well both Superunknown and The Downward Spiral turn 20 today (8 March). NIN did perform TDS in it's entirety twice during their Wave Goodbye tour in 09. This should be interesting.
    I'd rather see Kim Thayil jamming with Black Sabbath than Trent and Chris C. hanging out...
    Wait, Trent Reznor found an artist he actually likes being around?
    Trent Reznor found an amount of money for which he likes being around a fellow musician.
    Yeah. Not like he is in the process of touring Australia with qotsa. Or last last tour opened for Janes addiction. Or before that toured with Dillinger escape plan. You really got ol reznor pinned on that one.
