Multiple Grammy® Award-winning, Golden Globe Nominated and acclaimed singer and songwriter Chris Cornell today announces a Belfast date at Ulster Hall 24 April and a Dublin date at The Olympia Theatre 25 April for his 2016 solo acoustic European tour.
Following the huge success of his recent U.S. tour, Cornell will bring his Higher Truth tour to Europe starting on 23rd March in Reykjavik, Iceland, before crossing the continent. The tour will see Cornell’s first ever show in Russia when he plays Moscow on 26th March, and one night at London’s prestigious Royal Albert Hall on 3rd May.
Each headline show venue on the tour has been selected to host Cornell’s widely acclaimed and intimate acoustic live performance, which has generated standing ovations every single night on his U.S. tour, and will give fans the chance to see him play his one-man show which has been received with critical acclaim.
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.”
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.
