Chris Cornell

Soundgarden, who have just released their first album in 15 years, King Animal, played a sold-out show at the Phoenix Concert Theatre in Toronto for fans who pre-bought the CD.

Since the Phoenix Concert Theatre's capacity is around 1,000 people, this was truly an intimate treat for the fans who got a close-up look at lead singer and guitarist Chris Cornell and his ES-335.
