Chris Cornell cancels remainder of tour due to injury

Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell has announced the cancellation of the final two dates of his current solo tour due to a recent shoulder injury.

“It is with regret that the upcoming December 5th Chris Cornell concert at the Adrienne Arsht Center in Miami, Florida and the December 6th concert at the Mahaffey Theater in St. Petersburg, Florida will be cancelled,” Cornell’s team said in a statement posted on his social media sites. “After Chris was forced to cancel the November 27th show in Delaware to rest his shoulder for 2 days, he returned to the tour in Atlanta at Center Stage last night. This morning, the doctor has advised complete rest as the injury has worsened.”

Cornell has been on the road across North America since October 15 playing extensive and intimate acoustic shows under his “Songbook” format, with Chris performing tracks from throughout his career – including the debut of acoustic arrangements of songs from 2012's “King Animal”, Soundgarden's first new studio album in over 16 years.

One dollar of every ticket sold on the tour will be donated to The Chris and Vicky Cornell Foundation, which gives aid to the most vulnerable children; a portion of the proceeds will also benefit ChildHaven’s Creative Music Therapy Program Expansion (learn more here).
