Following The Bravery on the main stage, vetern singer Chris Cornell delivered a fiery set that proved why he has been an iconic fixture in the alt-rock pantheon ever since Soundgarden broke out at the forefront of the grunge scene.
Backed by a full band, Cornell delivered a diverse set, mixing his solo efforts with fan favorites from Soundgarden and Audioslave.
Cornell is set to release his next solo album, Scream, on October 14, 2008. The upcoming album was produced by the singular Timbaland, who hails the record as the best work of his career.
Not going to lie, it was pretty sweet hearing “Black Hole Sun” and all the other classic Soundgarden tunes Chris Cornell brought out for this show.
Ever the charasmatic frontman, Cornell was very active on stage and proved to be a dynamic subject as he worked the crowd. All the work was rewared by plenty of rock star poses from the singer, as long as we photogs were fast enough to catch them.
