CHRIS CORNELL Announces First-Ever Solo Acoustic 'Songbook' TourJanuary 19, 2011
This spring, SOUNDGARDEN/ex-AUDIOSLAVE singer Chris Cornell will embark on his first-ever solo acoustic "Songbook" tour. Running from April through May 2011, it will spotlight songs from throughout his illustrious career, as well as a few surprise covers.
Back in December 2009, Cornell played his first acoustic "Songbook" show in Los Angeles at the Hotel Cafe to overwhelming response — the show sold out instantly. A second performance soon followed at the city's famous Troubadour.
Now, live audiences across the U.S. and Canada will also have the chance to see Chris perform unplugged, up close and personal — an event many fans have been eagerly anticipating for years. Within this alternative setting, Cornell can easily interact with the audience and share insights about his music. Familiar songs emerge in a new context, showing that great songwriting translates to any idiom.
