Chris Cornell Suffers Shoulder Injury, Cancels Show In Delaware

From Chris Cornell’s official Facebook:

Chris Cornell regrets to announce that he will be unable to perform tonight at the Grand Opera House in Wilmington, Delaware, due to a severe shoulder strain sustained today.

Chris had hoped to be able to make the show tonight, but doctors have advised that he rests. The date will be rescheduled as soon as possible, and all tickets will be honored. Chris would like to apologize to everyone, especially those who have traveled to Wilmington for the show.

We here at AltNation wish Chris a healthy and speedy recovery.

    Kevin E. that’s not nice. Have you ever strained your shoulder? It’s kind of hard to play a guitar when you can’t lift your arm!

  • Mike Mazzarone

    I fractured my shoulder when I had my seizure in June. Awful, awful experience. A shoulder injury is nothing to take lightly. I wouldn’t be shocked if Cornell could even move his shoulder let alone play a guitar…

      The Magic Mike. The Jagr help the Devils good lots. Leading scorer and the Fat Marty Brodeur still tend the pipes good. Best goalie ever in the history of hockey he is. The Pokey Reddick a close second place with Jets old days gone by.

      Boom all fuckered up these days, fell off wagon he did. Fucking shit is hard. Boom out!! Music is turned off.

    Hey “Kevin E.”, how about we dislocate YOUR shoulder then see how much of a pussy YOU are? Would you like that? Sound good crotchface? How’s that dick? Remember to fondle the nuts too…

    I remember Ed injured his shoulder or arm a year or so ago and had to cancel and subsequently reshecule a whole bunch of dates.

    I think Chris Cornell and his band Soundgarden are on the edge now, Matt Camerons not playing with them , and the entire Soundgarden members are in doubt over their futures…I dont know people , looks like the possible end of this once great grunge rock band from Seattle. Of course we all want to wish Chris Cornell a good recovery and all, but his health problem is serious?? Then I think Soundgarden just need to take a 1 year break in 2014, start over and record new music in 2015 :)

  • PUNK JAM

    BY THE WAY SOUNDGARDEN FANS, HAPPY THANKSGIVING

    LET US GIVE THANKS TO GOD FOR KEEPING MATT CAMERON ALIVE AND WELL , IN PEARL JAM AT LEAST
    😉

    This is good he can get hooked on pain pills now and write songs like he use too when he was fucked up on acid. That’s how 4th July was born.

    Jerry was all fucked up when he hurt his arm and took plenty of pain meds and look at the shit he wrote about dinosaurs and the devil and all sort of cool stuff. Boom go get some help you are good man who needs to take a break. Then come back with a vengeance as you are to0 laid back.

    @Boomerangs never said it’s cool but it’s a fact about what musicians have been doing since the first time the caveman laid back a few drops of acid and slammed his club on a rock.

    Speedy Recovery Chris! Continue to Listen to your Doctor. If you don’t you can end up with repetitive surgeries. I saw your AWESOME show at the Shubert in Boston. You have an Awesome voice, loved listening to your stories about your songs. You have a great funny personality. Had decent seats, Mezzanine Row C first seat of the isle, plan on trying to get better seats next time you are in Boston. You played for hours and I’m sure you wish you could play the shows you had to cancel. Continue to keep the faith and ignore ignorant people who make insulting comments who don’t have anything nice to say, yet in same breath claim to be a fan. Take ibupropren 800 mg, helps alot with swelling and pain. Wish you the Best, you have a gentle heart ! MERRY CHRISTMAS!

    Hey Linda, Small world. I sat behind you at that same concert in row D. You just made the show in time because you drove down from New Hampshire and I said don’t feel bad because I drove down from Maine. We were saying we both wished Cornell had more shows in NE (NH and Maine). My brother had tickets to that show in Deleware and bumming out but gets why he had to cancel. He had 2 surgeries on his shoulder from doing just that, not listening to his doctor and taking it easy. So good advice incase you never know if he’s reading to see what his fans have to say. Too bad so many haters out there. Stll can’t believe what a small world. Hey, Happy Holidays!
