If you don't have any plans on January 16th and love Chris Cornell, Soundgarden, Temple of the Dog, Audioslave, Foo Fighters, Metallica, and others (whew!), you may be interested in checking this out. There will be a tribute concert to Chris Cornell coming up on January 16th at the Forum.
Jimmy Kimmel will host the concert, which is “presented by Cornell’s family and closest friends,” according to the announcement.
“We are honored to have all these amazing artists and friends come together to pay tribute to and show their love and appreciation for Chris, his music and the mark he’s left on the world. We look forward to sharing this night with all the fans,” said Vicky Cornell.
The evening will benefit the Chris and Vicky Cornell Foundation (chrisandvickycornellfoundation.org/) as well as The Epidermolysis Bullosa Medical Research Foundation (www.ebmrf.org), a nonprofit dedicated to raising funds and awareness for this painful and debilitating genetic disorder, a cause that Cornell cared deeply about and supported through his commitment to helping others.
Tickets go on sale November 16th, which is also the day Chris Cornell's Career Retrospective will also go on sale. Get more info HERE!
