Some of the highlights from the Chris Cornell tribute concert, "I Am the Highway", held last night (Wednesday, January 16th) at the Forum in Los Angeles, were truly special.
"SHOW ME HOW TO LIVE"
Actor Brad Pitt, a close friend to Chris, introduced Chris' daughter Toni, who played "Redemption Song" with ZIGGY MARLEY.
According to a press release, each artist appearing at the show shaped and interpreted their own performance to honor the singer, who took his own life in May 2017 after a Soundgarden show in Detroit.
The slew of artists who were confirmed to perform at the show, dubbed "I Am The Highway: A Tribute To Chris Cornell," included Foo Fighters, Metallica, Alice In Chains, Josh Homme of Queens Of The Stone Age, Taylor Momsen from The Pretty Reckless, Perry Farrell of Jane's Addiction, Faith No More's Mike Patton, the Melvins, Black Sabbath's Geezer Butler, Ryan Adams, Miley Cyrus, Brandi Carlile, Adam Levine, Fiona Apple, Miguel, Chris Stapleton and Ziggy Marley, along with members of Cornell's bands Soundgarden, Audioslave and Temple Of The Dog.
Proceeds from the evening will benefit the Chris and Vicky Cornell Foundation as well as The Epidermolysis Bullosa Medical Research Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to raising funds and awareness for this painful and debilitating genetic disorder.
