Watch Chris Cornell’s Final Performance with Soundgarden Just Hours Before His Sudden Death

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.

The 52-year-old rocker, who first gained fame as the lead singer of Soundgarden and later the band Audioslave, passed away Wednesday night, a rep for the singer told the Associated Press.

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 Fox Theatre tweeted images of Cornell and his electrified crowd, hands outstretched toward the singer as he played hits like “Spoonman” and “Fell On Black Days.”

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.”
