On Wednesday, January 16, the late Chris Cornell’s legacy and music will be honored with a star-studded concert event, “I Am The Highway: A Tribute to Chris Cornell,” at the Fabulous Forum in Los Angeles. In an announcement of the event, the concert is described as “an epic night of music, taking fans on an unforgettable journey through Chris’ legendary career and catalog.” The concert will feature performances by members of Soundgarden, Audioslave and Temple of the Dog, plus special performances by Foo Fighters, Metallica, Ryan Adams and more.
The show is presented by Chris’s family and closest friends, with Jimmy Kimmel hosting the special night.
“We are honored to have all these amazing artists and friends come together to pay tribute to and show their love and appreciation for Chris, his music and the mark he’s left on the world. We look forward to sharing this night with all the fans,” said Vicky Cornell.
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, a very personal cause that Chris cared deeply about and supported through his commitment to helping others.
