This Spring, 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 US & 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.
Chris Cornell’s Spring 2011 tour is only the beginning. Keep looking for audio, visual and live updates on the “Songbook” series on www.chriscornell.com.
