On January 16th, 2019, an all-star cast of musicians will honor the memory of the late Chris Cornell with a special tribute performance at The Forum in Los Angeles, CA.
Billed as “I Am The Highway: A Tribute To Chris Cornell,” the tribute show will feature members of Cornell’s three most notable bands—Soundgarden, Audioslave, and Temple of the Dog—several of whom are now best known as members of other groups like Pearl Jam and Rage Against The Machine.
In addition, the special tribute show will feature Foo Fighters, Metallica, and Ryan Adams. According to the announcement art, “I Am The Highway: A Tribute To Chris Cornell” will be hosted by late-night TV host and comedian Jimmy Kimmel as well as other surprise guests. Proceeds from the show will benefit the Epidermolysis Bullosa Medical Research Foundation (EBMRF).
Though the announcement comes almost a year and a half after Cornell’s shocking suicide, the music world still feels the pains of his untimely death. In addition to countless live tributes by a bevy of artists, the Museum of Pop Culture in Chris Cornell’s native Seattle, WA recently unveiled a life-sized bronze statue of the grunge hero. Cornell’s estate also recently announced a new posthumous LP and retrospective box set simply titled Chris Cornell, which will be released on November 16th—the same day tickets to “I Am The Highway” go on sale.
Tickets for “I Am The Highway: A Tribute To Chris Cornell” at The Forum go on sale to the general public this Friday, November 16th at 10 a.m. PST. For more information, or to grab your tickets when they go on sale, head here.
