Watch The Late Chris Cornell’s Final Performance With Soundgarden Last Night

The news of Chris Cornell‘s death was unexpected to everyone, but especially to those who’d seen him perform in concert with Soundgarden earlier in the evening at the Fox Theatre in Detroit. About halfway through their first tour since 2015, Cornell took his own life. With reasons unknown to us, fans everywhere will continue to celebrate his legacy through music.

Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell Has Passed Away

During the final Cornell’s final Soundgarden concert, the band played through a career-spanning setlist that ended with a cover of Badmotorfinger‘s “Slaves & Bulldozers” for its encore. It is standard for the band to incorporate this song into their live show, with the lyrics of Led Zeppelin‘s “In My Time of Dying” tied in. Some of the last words from Chris Cornell were, “So bleed your heart out / There’s no more rides for free / Bleed your heart out / I said, ‘What’s in it for me? / What’s in it for me? / In my time of dying, I want nobody to mourn/ All I want for you to do is take my body home.”
