On the eve of releasing Soundgarden's King Animal, Cornell treated fans to an intimate acoustic set of career-spanning deep cuts at Manhattan's Bowery Ballroom. He reportedly raised $30,000 for the Mayor's Fund to Advance New York City. Fittingly, he played two Springsteen songs, saying, "This is for New Jersey!" before "Atlantic City" and "This is for Staten Island!" before a gorgeous take on "Thunder Road."
