Multiple Grammy Award-winning, Golden Globe-nominated singer, songwriter and Pacific Northwest icon Chris Cornell recently announced the second U.S. leg of his critically acclaimed Higher Truth World Tour. The tour will kick off on June 16 in Clearwater, FL and travel up the East Coast, through the Midwest, and up to the Pacific Northwest before winding down on July 27thin Winnipeg, Manitoba. Along the way, Cornell will make his first appearance at the Ravinia Festival on July 3rd in Highland Park, Illinois.
During his Pacific Northwest visit, four northwest stops are stops, with stops in Eugene, Spokane, Yakima, and Victoria, B.C. on the horizon, though tragically no hometown Seattle shows are planned yet. Tickets for the Pacific Northwest shows will go on sale today at 10:00A.M. PDT.
One dollar from each ticket sold will support the Chris and Vicky Cornell Foundation, which is currently raising funds and partnering with charitable organizations to mobilize support for children facing problems including homelessness, poverty, abuse, and neglect.
Produced by Brendan O’Brien (Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam, Neil Young), Higher Truth showcases Cornell’s constant evolution as a master songwriter, lyricist, and musical craftsman – telling human stories which transcend musical genres. Inspired by the stark arrangements of musicians like Nick Drake, Daniel Johnston, and White Album-era Beatles, Cornell creates a musical universe unlike anything he has done before. Higher Truth is available via Universal Music Enterprises (UMe), and fans can purchase the deluxe version of the album, which contains four bonus tracks, HERE.
