    I still think they should have had Ian Thornley do a couple songs with Alain. But the show, from what I could stay awake for, was amazing. Metallica playing their own shit was stupid. Dave playing Everlong, however, was a nice tribute. 

    The Melvins are just bloody awful. 

    I'm a fan of Juliette Lewis but, at least on my feed, she sounded horrible. 
    I thought Metallica playing two SG songs and two of their own was pretty good.  
    I guess I just see it as a tribute show. you play his songs or songs that fit in a tribute, like everlong did. thrash metal doesn't fit that description, in my opinion. 
    Yeah it would be hard for Metallica to play a 'fitting' song for the occasion.  Fade to Black?  Four Horseman?  So Fucking What?  Not a lot of options for them.

    So it has to do with the genre..?

    Metallica could have played this. Could have been a powerful moment:

    I understand why Dave played Everlong, and dedicated it to Chris. But I don’t get why The Melvins and Metallica played their own songs. It didn’t really make sense at a tribute show.

    I think Metallica could’ve done a great version of Outshined

    Agree. And they crushed Master of Puppets by the way.

    Hating Untill it Sleeps is so silly.

    Hating the emo music video is one thing. But come on, be resonable.

    What a phenomenal looking setlist. Hope everyone who made it to the show had a great time. I imagine it was emotional to say the least.

    Looks like a pretty amazing setlist, and amazing & emotional night for those who were there. Nice.
    Watched the Seasons video ... Adam Levine did a really good job, I thought.

    well, yeah, kinda. generally, to me, anyway, tributes are songs that stir sentimental emotion, not want to make you throw your lamp out the window. or songs by the person the tribute is for.

    It was an epic - and very long - night. Show ended at around 12:15 a.m. It was quite disorganized at the start, which probably contributed to it going longer than expected. Things eventually smoothed out and the night as a whole had a very celebratory vibe to it (with a few moments of reflection - particularly the various moments when Chris's wife and kids spoke - that reminded me of just how real and sad it is that he is gone). 

    Personal highlights (some of which I am completely shocked to say were personal highlights):

    - Dave Grohl's very emotional rendition of Everlong
    - Stone w/ Maroon 5 - Seasons
    - TOTD w/ Miley Cyrus - Say Hello 2 Heaven
    - Chris Stapleton - The Keeper
    - Audioslave w/ guests - Set It Off
    - TOTD w/ Fiona Apple - All Night Thing
    - Soundgarden - Rusty Cage
    - Ziggy Marley w/ Toni Cornell - Redemption Song
    - the various clips of Chris's live performances that were shown between sets

    Random thoughts:
    - Jimmy Kimmel was terribly unfunny and unprepared. They should've asked Jack Black to host the event (his 5 or so minutes onstage were hilarious).

    - I thought Metallica's set was fun and reverent and the crowd was really into them. I just don't get why, during a show that obviously has a LOT to squeeze in and a limited amount of time, they'd choose to play Master of Puppets. 

    - Tom Morello is a god. 

    - There were some performances that were a bit of a drag, but everyone seemed genuinely happy/honored to be part of this event, and genuine fans of Chris Cornell, so THANK YOU to them for performing for free in order to raise money for a great cause and to celebrate the life/music of a man many of us miss dearly.

    I was there and really need a nap. Tom Morello is indeed a rock god.

    That is awesome! Thanks for share.

    Like I said, I can't opine on the song because I dislike Metallica post-Justice.

    After all the merch ran out, there was a sign posted in the merch area stating that items would be available online today. Hoping to get a shirt since I wasn't able to last night.

    There is video of the entire show from the first section off the stage.  I would be surprised if there wasn't someone enterprising enough to sync the audio with the video....

    Interesting event. Some good performances, some that could have been skipped. You could definitely tell the event was loosely planned and rehearsed. A few glitches and very robotic like use of teleprompters for most of the speeches - including Stones speech, which felt forced and too polished. You could tell how much Chris and his music impacted all of the artists and friends in attendance - I was hoping for some more genuine reflection - Jack Black was one of the only ones that did so and it came across as such. 

    The Foo Fighters were excellent. Dave Grohl brought it all night. Really enjoyed him fronting Audioslave. 

    Was surprised with how well Adam Levine took on Seasons. Brandi Carlile and Fiona Apple were great as well. I wish they gave Ryan Adams all of Metallica’s time. He is very talented and I wanted to hear more than just two songs. Miley Cyrus really killed Say Hello 2 Heaven - can’t deny that at all. 

    I will say that after you hear others singing Chris’s songs all night, you realize quickly that there is no one else like him. 
  • i was lucky to be there, sec 210 not bad side of stage seats. shocked how quickly the merch ran out. anyway:

    - could've done without the Melvins
    - wish the Promise was done with an orchestra
    - Alain Johannes is super talented
    - Stapleton & Carlile were two of the bigger stars of the night. really impressed by everything they did
    - one of my favorite performances was Josh doing Rusty Cage, he is the man
    - Tom Morello was MVP, the guy is incredible. Audioslave is so powerful, although i wish Juliette Lewis did NOT perform
    - Dave Grohl doing solo everlong was great and probably more enjoyable than the other Foo stuff last night IMO
    - it was cool seeing Metallica live but it was odd timing and odd song choices, just didn't fit with the night. that being said they're kick ass
    - the night seemed really unorganized, Kimmel was all over the place. they just couldn't seem to find the correct tone of the night, they would tell jokes after showing an emotional video so it was kind of confusing
    - Miley can really sing as can Adam Levine so no need to hate on them at all
    - obviously SG & TOTD were A+. tons of credit to Stone, Jeff, Matt, Ben & Kim plus the entire Cornell family.

    with all that being said something still feels wrong hearing others sing Chris's songs. after being this event if i could go back in time im not sure if I'd want to attend just because there will never be another Chris Cornell.
