Chris Cornell Takes "Acoustic Higher Truth Tour" Across North America

Chris Cornell Takes "Acoustic Higher Truth Tour" Across North America
It's a fact that Chris Cornell's upcoming Higher Truth solo album hits stores this September, and now it's been revealed that the Soundgarden singer will be taking off on tour around the same time.

While earlier reports hadn't pinpointed a solid arrival time for the record — Cornell's first proper full-length solo album since 2009's Timbaland-assisted Scream — it's now landed itself a September 18 release date. The newly revealed batch of tour dates, appropriately called the "Acoustic Higher Truth Tour" start up just a couple of days later.

According to a press release, the live shows will be stripped down and find Cornell performing unplugged renditions of tracks from throughout his career. The solo acoustic trek kicks off in Los Angeles, and sticks primarily to U.S. cities, but there are a pair of Canadian dates on the docket. He hits Vancouver's Orpheum Theatre on September 30 and will appear at Toronto's Massey Hall a week later, on October 9.

You'll find the full details for Chris Cornell's North American solo tour, which also includes a trip to Australia and New Zealand, down below.

Neither a tracklisting nor samples from Higher Truth have been made available, but the record comes produced by Brendan O'Brien (Pearl Jam), who had previously worked with Cornell on Audioslave's Revelations LP.
