Artists like Heart’s Ann Wilson, Ryan Adams and Living Colour have performed Cornell’s music live to remember the musician, while others, like Metallica and Aerosmith, have dedicated their own songs to Cornell’s legacy, which also included solo work and the bands Audioslave and Temple of the Dog.
Cornell died by suicide at the age of 52 on May 17th, just hours after the band staged a concert in Detroit.
From U2’s onstage dedication of “Running to Stand Still” and Red Hot Chili Peppers’ moving “Seasons” to countless renditions of “Black Hole Sun” and Eric Church’s “Rusty Cage” as previously reimagined by Johnny Cash, check out all the best onstage tributes to Cornell.
