Event Description:

I Am The Highway: A Tribute to Chris Cornell was just announced and will feature performances by members of Chris Cornell's previous bands (Soundgarden, Temple of the Dog, and Audioslave) plus the Foo Fighters, Metallica, Ryan Adams, and many more. The event will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel and "special guests" on Wednesday, January 16th at the Forum in Inglewood.

Tickets go on sale Friday, November 16th at 10am via Ticketmaster.com.

One of the last times Chris Cornell performed at the Forum was at KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas 2015, where he played an incredible solo set that included covers of Prince's "Nothing Compares 2 U" and John Lennon's "Imagine," as well as a slew of Audioslave and Soundgarden hits. Cornell made his final visit to the Forum in November 2016 for Temple Of The Dog's 25th Anniversary Tour. Cornell died a few months later in May 2017 of an apparent suicide.

The evening will benefit the Chris and Vicky Cornell Foundation and the Epidermolysis Bullosa Medical Research Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to raising funds and awareness for this painful and debilitating genetic disorder, a cause that Cornell cared deeply about and supported through his commitment to helping others.
