“One of the best voices in rock and perhaps one of the most underrated canons of work in music.” – Jon Bye, Gigwise

“Little to dilute the potency of Cornell's material…an adoring audience was entranced.”  – Killian Barry,

“An amazing mix of solo songs, hits from his various bands and the most jaw-dropping covers imaginable…his unique voice held the entire room in rapture.” – Brian McIver, Scottish Sunday Mail

“One of the finest displays of acoustic musicianship I have ever seen…Chris Cornell has managed to firmly establish himself as one of the finest voices in music, irrespective of the genre or venue” – Toni Woodward, Birmingham Live
