Chris Cornell maps out fall tour plans
Chris Cornell continues his post-Audioslave career with a new round of headlining dates this fall supporting his first solo album in more than seven years.
The singer will make a Sept. 15 appearance at radio station KROQ’s LA Invasion festival (which also features Smashing Pumpkins and Velvet Revolver, among other acts) before kicking off the headlining portion of his outing Sept. 25 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The tour spans 11 cities and wraps up Oct. 7 in Reno, NV. All dates are below.
In February, Cornell announced that he had split with Audioslave due to “irresolvable personality conflicts as well as musical differences,” and simultaneously announced the impending release of “Carry On,” which eventually hit stores June 5.
“Carry On,” Cornell’s first solo collection since 1999’s “Euphoria Morning,” was produced by Steve Lillywhite (U2, Rolling Stones). Among the album’s 14 tracks is the cut “You Know My Name,” a song that first turned up in last year’s James Bond flick, “Casino Royale,” and the lead-off single “No Such Thing.”
Alongside the set’s 13 original tracks will be Cornell’s “slow-grind cover of Michael Jackson’s ‘Billie Jean’ that gives the familiar song a completely new feeling,” according to a press release.
Cornell’s old bandmates in Audioslave created a flurry of attention earlier this year when they reunited as Rage Against the Machine with singer Zack de la Rocha for a performance at this summer’s Coachella festival. The band has remained together since the comeback gig, appearing subsequently at various summer festivals and other events, although the group has yet to make an official announcement concerning its long-term plans.
