Chris Cornell will play a series of intimate shows highlighting songs he has written throughout his illustrious career. This is the first time U.S. fans will hear acoustic arrangements of songs from 2012's critically-acclaimed "King Animal," Soundgarden's first new studio album in over 16 years. American/Sri Lankan folk artist, Bhi Bhiman, will support Cornell on tour.

Chris Cornell has maintained his own unique identity over more than two decades as a singer, songwriter, and lyricist, and has contributed to the catalogs of celebrated rock bands Soundgarden, Audioslave, and Temple of The Dog. As a solo artist, Chris has contributed original songs to multiple movie soundtracks, including this summer's Man of Steel, and became the first American male singer to write and perform the theme song for the James Bond franchise in "Casino Royale." He was recently nominated for a Golden Globe for his original song, "The Keeper" written for the film "Machine Gun Preacher" and wrote the song "Live to Rise" performed by Soundgarden in the mega-hit Disney film "The Avengers."
