The Center for the Arts, University at Buffalo, will present "Chris Cornell: Songbook Solo Acoustic Tour" on Tuesday, Nov. 5, at 7:30 p.m. in the Mainstage Theatre. Tickets are $49.50.
Singer/songwriter Chris Cornell is a rock icon who thrives on contradictions. An innovator who resists genre labels, he was nonetheless a chief architect of the '90s grunge movement. Frequently ranked as one of the best voices in music history, he has successfully maintained his own unique identity over more than two decades as a multi-Grammy Award-winning musician and universally acclaimed singer, songwriter and lyricist. Cornell is best known for his time fronting the bands Soundgarden, Audioslave, and Temple of the Dog, as well as for the songs he has written for feature motion pictures.
In 2011, Cornell began performing solo acoustic concerts highlighting his career as a songwriter to sold-out crowds and worldwide acclaim. This is the first time U.S. fans will hear acoustic arrangements of songs from 2012's critically acclaimed "King Animal," Soundgarden's first new studio album in more than 16 years.
Cornell will be joined on stage by folk-rock guitarist Bhi Bhiman, who will perform some songs with him throughout the show. There is no opening act for this performance.
