In response to the untimely passing of singer Chris Cornell on May 18, Ultimate Jam Night, the long-running show in residency at the world-famous Whisky A Go Go in Hollywood will hold a special tribute in the Soundgarden and Audioslave frontman's honor on Tuesday, May 23.
Doors open at 8 PM. The event is free of charge and will be broadcast worldwide on Zinna.TV.
“There has been profound grief associated with the loss of Chris Cornell,” said Adam Mandel, one of the producers of Ultimate Jam Night. “Almost immediate to the announcement of his death, fans and musicians began asking us to create a place for them to express their feelings. Frankly, we struggled with the timing of this tribute. Chris Cornell’s impact on a generation is significant and the sadness is real. We therefore felt it was important to create an evening for mourning, reverence, and support.”
A long list of performers including Soul Asylum’s Dave Pirner is scheduled to appear; full artist announcements will be coming right up until performance time. For updates, go to https://www.facebook.com/ultimatejamnight/.
