Chris Cornell announces second leg of Higher Truth tour
For fans who missed him in the fall, Chris Cornell will be back on the road in North America later this year. The Soundgarden singer revealed Monday that he’ll return to the United States and Canada this summer, kicking things off in Clearwater, Florida June 16.
Before Cornell’s stateside homecoming, he’ll spend three months in Europe in support of his 2015 release, Higher Truth. The Sunshine State seems like a logical starting place for the tour’s second U.S. leg, considering Cornell created much of his latest solo set there.

“When I was writing on my own, I was in Miami, and I’d wander around and go jogging and see the people, and there were a lot of out of work people,” he told EW last year. “Just a lot of guys just sitting on the wall in the morning going through the help wanted ads. I would recognize people every day and started talking to some of them. I felt the compulsion to have conversations with them. It was a moving experience, and the different characters I saw really resonated.”
The acoustic tour kicked off in September and saw Cornell take the stage with his 11-year-old daughter to perform “Redemption Song” during its New York City stop. At an Australia show in December, the grunge rocker paid tribute to Scott Weiland just after his passing with a somber rendition of “Say Hello 2 Heaven.”
