Soundgarden: Chris Cornell announces North American tour

Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell has announced a fall North American tour comprised of intimate, acoustic shows that will kick off October 15 in San Diego, California.

Cornell will play solo concerts under his “Songbook” format, performing tracks from throughout his career, while offering fans their first chance to hear acoustic arrangements of songs from 2012's “King Animal”, Soundgarden's first new studio album in over 16 years.

American/Sri Lankan folk artist, Bhi Bhiman, will open for Chris.

Fan presale runs from August 14th, 10am – August 15th, 10pm - more details to follow.

In addition, an exclusive pre-sale for American Express cardholder members will run from August 14th, venue pre-sales will open on August 15th, and the public sale will begin on August 16th at 10AM local time.

This year also marks the launch of The Chris and Vicky Cornell Foundation, which gives aid to the most vulnerable children. One dollar of every ticket sold on the tour will be donated to the Foundation, and a portion of the proceeds will benefit ChildHaven’s Creative Music Therapy Program Expansion. Visit for more information on ChildHaven and the program.

Cornell’s solo dates come of the heels of Soundgarden’s European tour in support of “King Animal”; dates begin September 4 in Helsinki, Finland and wrap up September 19 in London.
