  • I am happy to hear that Stub Hub doesn't sell tickets when it's a charitable event.... although they were initially on there.
    Congrats to those who were lucky enough to get tickets 💙

    Its fucking LA.  The celebs and industry types will have no problems getting tickets.  This should be in Seattle and should have been sold through the fan clubs. Happy its a fundraiser but it feels wrong to me. I hope Eddie skips it (sorry to those who bought tickets-no offense intended).

    Why would you want Ed to skip this event?  
    I'll ride the wave where it takes me......

    Just my two cents.  The arena will be full of Hollywood rather than real fans. It stinks.  Glad their money will go to good use.

    I fully agree. Was actually glad he did not make an appearance at any of the TOTD shows.

    Got some sour grapes? Chris lived in LA. He's buried here. Mike has a house here. The Foo Fighters live here. Ryan Adams lives here. Kimmell lives here. Neil Young lives here. LA is the 2nd largest city in the U.S... and the Forum seats 17,000. There will be more than just Hollywood and industry people at this show, I can assure you.

    Eddie will probably be there. It benefits EBMRF so it makes sense he will be there. Sorry you didn't get a ticket.

    Who else do you guys think will/should perform?  I think Chris Stapleton would be great, he definitely sounds similar to CC at times.  I think Myles Kennedy is about the only mainstream singer with a similar range to Chris.  I'd say Ann Wilson too.

    Right. Because Ed never hangs out with any of those Hollywood folks.

    You are 100% right. Sarcasm detected. My views are biased as I hate LA.  Chris Cornell story coming soon to a theater near you.

    No sour grapes here, and my comment was about Ed skipping it, not the other stuff, but I see how you thought differently. Though I'm not sure what difference it makes to have the event where some of the people taking part in this live, it would seem more appropriate in Seattle. Regardless, I don't give 2 shits where it is, and I've got tickets and my airfare & hotel are booked.

    Holding the show in "fucking" L.A. will help bring more attention to the causes.

    The TM listing now shows a button that says,

    "Every online ticket purchase comes with one physical copy of Chris Cornell's upcoming album, "Chris Cornell". Approximately 24-48 hours after purchase, you will receive an additional email with instructions on how to redeem your album. US residents only. One CD per online ticket. Not valid for Fan to Fan Resale."


    Has anyone who scored tickets through TM received an email with info on getting the album?  I bought 2 tickets but have not received anything.  Thanks

    So fuckin' excited for this show, while it is bittersweet, having all these guys together under the same roof is going to be absolutely spectacular to witness!

    I heard they were considerering only allowing Cornell Fan Club members from 1992 access to the best seats. That would have been fair.

    Keep in mind the rapid Metallica and Foo Fighter fans were also in the hunt.
