Shortly after performing a concert with Soundgarden at Detroit’s Fox Theatre Wednesday night, frontman Chris Cornell died at age 52.

Fans uploaded videos from the show featuring the grunge band playing some of their hits like “Black Hole Sun” and “Blow Up the Outside World.” They ended the set by combining their own “Slaves & Bulldozers” with Led Zeppelin’s “In My Time of Dying.” The tour was scheduled to go on until the end of May. (As of Thursday morning, Soundgarden had not issued a statement on Cornell’s death.)

Cornell co-founded Soundgarden with bassist Hiro Yamamoto and guitarist Kim Thayil in 1984 and went on to front both Audioslave and Temple of the Dog in addition to putting out five albums as a solo artist.
