Metallica, Foo Fighters and More To Play Tribute Concert For Chris Cornell

November 13, 2018

Rock lost one of its most powerful voices in May 2017 after the death of Chris Cornell. There has since been an endless outpouring of support both from fellow artists and fans to Cornell's family and bandmates, shining a light on the stigma of mental health and substance abuse.

As there have been many tribute performances over the years, on January 16th, 2019, a special Chris Cornell tribute concert will be held at The Forum in Los Angeles starring the Foo Fighters, Metallica, Bryan Adams, as well as surviving members of Soundgarden, Temple of the Dog and Audioslave.

Proceeds from the concert will go to benefit the Chris and Vicky Cornell Foundation, which helps children facing homelessness, poverty, abuse, and neglect. A portion of the proceeds will also go towards EBMRF, which is geared towards finding a cure for the rare skin condition Epidermolysis Bullosa.

In May of 2017 we lost one of the most unique, distinctive, and game-changing voices in rock with the passing of Chris Cornell. Join us on January 16 at The Forum in Los Angeles as we get in on the celebration and pay tribute to a true one-of-a-kind talent. ・・・ Tickets on sale Friday, November 16th at 10 AM Pacific Time through Ticketmaster and will benefit the Chris and Vicky Cornell Foundation as well as @ebmrf. ・・・ #iamthehighway
