Chris Cornell will be hitting the road this fall for what's being dubbed the "Second Songbook Tour." The Soundgarden frontman has been touring with the band in support of last year's King Animal, and will feature solo arrangements from the album on the upcoming solo acoustic tour.

The new slate of dates pick up where Cornell's 2011 solo "Songbook Tour" left off, and will again feature the singer-guitarist performing stripped-down versions from the Soundgarden catalog as well as solo work (presumably including work from his 2011 solo LP Songbook).

This year the singer-guitarist launched the Chris and Vicky Cornell Foundation, which aids needy children. One dollar from every ticket sold will go toward the foundation, and portions from additional proceeds will be donated to the ChildHaven’s Creative Music Therapy Program Expansion.

The tour is set to kick off October 15th in San Diego. Here are the dates:

Song Stories

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
