Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell to perform in Kingston

Soundgarden frontman and solo artist Chris Cornell is obviously one of the great screamers in rock ‘n’ roll history; but unlike most screamers, he possesses a creamy, muscular lower register that he put to such great use on classics like “Fell on Black Days.” And while Cornell is arguably one of the three great architects of the Seattle sound, in his solo work he has shown real range and a big set of ears.

Cornell appears solo at the Ulster Performing Arts Center (UPAC) in Kingston on Wednesday, November 13. If you want an idea of how it is likely to sound, consult his 2011 solo live release Songbook. It is quite good. The show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets cost $69, $54 and $49 and are available at the UPAC and Bardavon box offices, as well as through Ticketmaster at and (800) 745-3000. UPAC is located at 601 Broadway in Kingston.
