Multiple Grammy Award-winning, Golden Globe-nominated singer/songwriter Chris Cornell today announced the second North American leg of his critically acclaimed "Higher Truth" World Tour. The tour will kick off June 16 in Clearwater, Florida, and travel up the East Coast through the Midwest and up to the Pacific Northwest before winding down on July 27 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Along the way, Cornell will make his first appearance at the Ravinia Festival on July 3 in Highland Park, Illinois.
Tickets for most shows will go on sale at 10 a.m. ET this Friday, March 11.
One dollar from each ticket sold will support the Chris and Vicky Cornell Foundation, which is currently raising funds and partnering with charitable organizations to mobilize support for children facing problems such as homelessness, poverty, abuse and neglect.
Produced by Brendan O'Brien (Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam, Neil Young), "Higher Truth" showcases Cornell's constant evolution as a master songwriter, lyricist and musical craftsman - telling human stories that transcend musical genres. Inspired by the stark arrangements of musicians like Nick Drake, Daniel Johnston and "White Album"-era Beatles, Cornell creates a musical universe unlike anything he has done before.
