News: Chris Cornell Announces Solo Acoustic Tour

2 min read

(AUS) Chris Cornell – multi-Grammy award-winning, Golden Globe nominated and acclaimed singer songwriter – has announced solo acoustic tour dates for November 2015. The tour will provide fans the chance to see Cornell perform songs drawn from throughout his entire career, as well as new songs from his highly anticipated forthcoming studio album – Songbook  (scheduled for a September release) – in an unplugged, up close and personal setting.

Chris Cornell’s career began with Seattle trailblazers Soundgarden, whose wild soundscapes combined visceral punk attitude with artistic depth. Powerfully original, they were the first of their generation of Seattle bands to sign to a major label in 1989 and their work continued to evolve over the course of seven groundbreaking albums. Soundgarden made a historic return to the live stage in 2010 and have since toured the world, releasing the all-new studio album, King Animal, to widespread acclaim.

Cornell has continually redefined his sound and vision. In 1990, side project Temple of the Dog saw him experiment with a more soulful style alongside the future members of Pearl Jam. Later in the decade, his critically acclaimed solo album Euphoria Morning combined lush melody and instrumentation with lyrics which spoke of alienation and despair. And as the millennium turned, he joined with three other musical pioneers from Rage Against the Machine to create supergroup Audioslave. The multi-platinum band released three albums and toured stadiums around the world, becoming the first American rock group to perform a massive free concert in Castro’s Cuba. Cornell has also collaborated with many different artists, most recently the Zac Brown Band on their single “Heavy Is The Head”, which peaked at #1 on rock radio in the US.
