Again TripleM hit us with great rock news!, because Chris Cornell (Soundgarden, Audioslave) is mean to announce a solo Australian tour.

Music reporter Nui Te Koha told Triple M’s Hot Breakfast this morning: “Chris Cornell is coming to play some acoustic gigs. Soundgarden tracks are in the set. Expect an announcement this week or next.”

Cornell will follow the path of Eddie Vedder who toured Australia few months ago, with sold out shows around the country and we were there in Canberra and Sydney covering on the spot both of his shows.

For sure Cornell will have a show as good as Vedder’s…this will be a must go show!…can you imagine if he sings Temple of the Dog’s “Hunger Strike”?
