Chris Cornell will play the Ulster Hall on Sunday April 24 2016.
The multiple Grammy award-winning and Golden Globe nominated singer will be playing Belfast as part of his Higher Truth tour.
Cornell will perform a career-spanning set at each show, including tracks from his new album ‘Higher Truth’ which was described by Metro as “heartbreakingly effective”, with Kerrang! Magazine proclaiming it as “one of the best records Chris has made in the last 15 years.”
Cornell was the chief architect of the 90s grunge movement and remains one of the most iconic rock voices of all time. Achieving multi-platinum success with three legendary bands – selling over 30 million records worldwide – he has forged his own unique identity over three decades as a Grammy award-winning, Golden Globe nominated singer, songwriter, guitarist, composer and lyricist.
His career began with Seattle trailblazers Soundgarden, whose wild soundscapes combined visceral punk attitude with artistic depth. Powerfully original, they were the first of their generation of Seattle bands to sign to a major label in 1989 and their work continued to evolve over the course of seven groundbreaking albums.
His recent solo acoustic ‘Songbook’ tour attracted sell-out crowds and critical acclaim worldwide.
Cornell has also become involved in philanthropy, using music to support causes that help foster change. The Chris and Vicky Cornell Foundation is currently raising funds and partnering with charitable organizations to mobilize support for children facing problems including homelessness, poverty, abuse and neglect.
