Chris Cornell played his final, sold-out performance with band Soundgarden on Wednesday night in Detroit, just hours before he was found dead in his hotel room after the show.
Cornell’s rep, Brian Bumbery, called the singer’s passing “sudden and unexpected.” The rocker was currently on tour with his band and the rep said his family was shocked by his passing.
The singer’s last tweet had announced his return to “Rock City” Detroit.
During the performance, he showed more love for the city and its fans, overheard in a fan clip saying, “I have bragged about Detroit crowds for 30 years, so stand the f— up and make some noise.”
Of Cornell’s famed vocal range, a fan wrote with his clip, “He’s still got it.”
