Chris Cornell has launched another european tour, traveling around major cities with his acoustic guitar and playing his wonderful songs. Last night in Iceland, Cornell surprised the fans by playing a beautiful version for ‘Hunger Strike’. Watch below.
The lovable song is taken from the ‘Temple Of The Dog’ band and album. On the original recording, Cornell shares the lead vocals with Eddie Vedder, making the song a grunge anthem of an entire generation.
The ‘Temple Of The Dog’ supergroup, created by members of Soundgarden and Pearl Jam in 1991, were brought together in a tribute to the late Andrew Wood, frontman of ‘Mother Love Bone’, and Cornell’s roommate and best friend. All of the songs on the album were written by Cornell in his friend’s memory.
Supporting his latest album, ‘Higher Truth’, Cornell will tour Europe until May 10th, then will go back to the US, touring all summer until the end of July.
