Soundgarden successfully completed its first tour in more than a decade this past summer, but frontman Chris Cornell isn’t quite done. This fall, the rock musician will hit the road again for the second leg of his solo acoustic Songbook Tour.
The tour — which highlights Cornell’s lengthy musical career — begins November 1 at Minglewood Hall in Memphis, TN. A total of two dozen concerts are booked through December 17 at Balboa Theatre in San Diego, CA, including a single two-night stand (November 25-26) at the Borgata Music Box in Atlantic City, NJ.
Additional one-night stops are pegged for November 6 at the Fillmore in Miami Beach, FL; November 21 at Carnegie Hall in New York, NY; December 4 at Michigan Theatre in Ann Arbor, MI; and December 16 at the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles, CA.
Tickets are already available for several dates of the tour, with additional onsales starting today (September 30) in more than a half dozen markets. Full onsale dates and onsales are available on the musician’s official Web site.
According to those event listings, ticket prices are largely within the $30 to $60 range. A couple venues have slightly higher face values, such as the Ridgefield Playhouse in Connecticut, where pre-fee prices are a flat $77.
Cornell’s solo acoustic show was a hot ticket earlier in the year, when the first leg of the Songbook Tour launched. Many dates of that venture sold out quickly, and at least one date of the upcoming venture has followed suit. According to the venue’s Web site, tickets are sold out to the tour leg’s November 1 opener at Minglewood Hall in Memphis, TN.
More recently, though, Cornell has concerted his live efforts to Soundgarden’s summer 2011 reunion tour. The primary portion of that jaunt wrapped in late July, though the band has a couple U.S. performances yet to come on October 26 at the Verizon Theatre in Grand Prairie, TX, and October 28 at the Voodoo Experience festival in New Orleans, LA.
