Chris Cornell coming to the Mahaffey Theatre in St. Petersburg



Chris Cornell may be a grunge godhead, but his epic wail deserves a theatrical setting. That's why he performed at the ornate Tampa Theatre in 2012, and it's why he'll bring his acoustic tour to the Mahaffey Theatre in St. Petersburg this December.

The Soundgarden frontman will perform at the Mahaffey on Dec. 6, the venue announced Tuesday. Folk-rocker Bhi Bhiman will open the show. Tickets start at $27.50 and they'll go on sale at noon Nov. 8. Click here for details.

If Cornell's Tampa Theatre gig is any indication, you can expect a mix of stripped-down songs from Soundgarden (Black Hole Sun, Fell On Black Days), Audioslave (Doesn't Remind Me), Temple of the Dog (Hunger Strike), his solo career (Can't Change Me) and others (his bluesy take on Michael Jackson's Billy Jean).
