CHRIS CORNELL TOLD LIVE NATION ON AUGUST 16TH THAT HE’D MISS MADE IN AMERICA FESTIVAL

Philly.com is reporting that Chris Cornell informed Live Nation on August 16th that he would not be able to perform at the Made in America festival on September 2nd in Philadelphia. Cornell’s camp announced two days ago that he would not be able to perform due to a scheduling conflict. Cornell is set to perform for President Obama on Saturday in Des Moines, Iowa. Philly.com’s report states that a Cornell source said that the Obama gig didn’t effect the Made in America one, but I’ll wait for official word before taking that as fact, since we still haven’t heard of any other Cornell appearances on September 2nd or in the ensuing week. If Cornell does reveal another reason for missing Made in America, we’ll report it.

    So, with no official word, you’ll report that it was due to the Obama show. But when you have a credible source telling you otherwise, you won’t report that until you receive “official” word? Makes perfect sense! There’s no bias on this site at all, right?

  • BillyL

    Yeah, what Junior said. Is this website sponsored by Fox News or something? It is getting more and more fucking ridiculous by the day.

  • Phil

    Indeed, the leaning-far-from-left-ness of this site couldn’t be more obvious. Enough. The fact this is still considered a news-worthy story is ridiculous.

  • Phil

    He’s still quite young. Idealism is the last luxury of youth to go when you shed those specific years.

    It was mentioned that it was due to scheduling and if you notice the only thing scheduled around the time of the Obama show was the MIA. So it’s not rocket science. It’s also not the first time Chris has cancelled a previously scheduled show. Didn’t he do it a little while ago for some Johnny Cash tribute and there isn’t any leg of his solo tours that he hasn’t cancelled a show for one reason or another. I think it makes him look unprofessional that he would choose something over another and then go around blaming everyone else for it, instead of himself. As alot of other people have mentioned why couldn’t do both shows, it’s not unusual to tour like that with back to back dates? He can fly on planes. The other thing I don’t get is why some people have to make anyone who complains about the cancellation out to be a hater or a troll. If you’re paying money for a show to see Cornell it doesn’t make you a hater. It’s also a joke that this has turned into something about supporting his country or political choice. LMAO

    Woke up this morning and realised I forgot to vote. Doh!

    Next person who uses the ‘age’ copout gets IP banned. I don’t give a shit if Cornell plays for Obama, Romney, Gary Johnson etc. The point is that until Cornell says otherwise, this was canceled due to a scheduling conflict, and the only other thing on his schedule is the Iowa Obama gig. If he says it’s for another reason, I’ll report it. I could care less either way.

  • Junior

    ^^Stop showing your age and ignorance so often Brett. Yeah, lets ip ban everyone who calls you out. Typical resolution for a young minded punk. There’s a fucking reason people keep using the “age COP-OUT” when it comes to your fuckery. Grow up.

  • Junior

    People will eventually see through your bullshit. Fuck this site, I’m done with it.

  • Max

    You are all awful people with your panties in bunches.

  • SuperSG

    Junior. put up a better site. Oh wait a minute…

  • Bigger

    The Obama event is the only thing you KNOW is on his schedule. I’m sure he has an additional schedule book with various things written in it that none of us know about.

  • MAYAN CALENDAR 2012

  • Brett Buchanan

    In case you change your mind buddy, IP BANNED!

  • SIN

    Yeah, too bad an IP ban is extremely easy to get around but I guess that’s not the point.

    I never really thought the Obama thing was the reason, it was all complete speculation. I don’t think people realize that maybe he has a PRIVATE life, just because we see his tour schedule doesn’t mean anything.

    However I’m not too upset, because Brett didn’t make Obama part of the headline this time, and made sure to point out the Obama scheduling thing was his opinion, well done.

    On another note, fuck politics! Both parties are run by the bank!

    Guys this is Brett’s site so he can write whatever the hell he wants. If your interested in what he has to say then great but if not then what are you doing here? Stop giving him shit cause most of us actually enjoy reading his news.

  • SuperSG

    well said. Brett could simply stop reporting stuff to us. Where does that leave those without a SoundgardenWorld/Ten Club membership? It leaves us being fucked.

  • chicago_animal

    Yeah but when did TIX go onsale? People who REALLY wanted to see him probably bought their tix before Aug 16.

  • the keeper

    Hey SuperSG you do know that just because you aren’t a member that doesn’t mean you cant view the forums?

    I don’t get what is so “fucked” about him not reporting things. Sure this site is convenient as everything is in one place but it is extremely easy to find the information

  • SuperSG

    Ah, I did not realise that…oops. The Keeper is a good song BTW. I was being melo dramatic when i said we would be fucked. Just tryin to express how fortunate we are to have this site. Other sites arent specific to GRUNGE.

  • SuperSG

    I am a member, BTW, I signed up before looking at the forums…again, oops.

  • SG87

    I’ll tell u what the amount of fucking complaing everyone does blows my mind if u don’t like the website take a fucking walk do your own thing then u sound like a bunch of fucking girls. Hey Brett I think the website is great and 4 anyone who does not like it we don’t give a shit go find something better to do then bash someone who is at least making a effort . Everyone is so damn smart start your own site and will c how it goes.

  • SuperSG

    Good way to put it. ^^^

    ………………………………………………….. ?

  • Yup

    ^^Stop showing your age and ignorance so often Brett. Yeah, lets ip ban everyone who calls you out. Typical resolution for a young minded punk. Thereโ€™s a fucking reason people keep using the โ€œage COP-OUTโ€ when it comes to your fuckery. Grow up.

  • Brett Buchanan

    To: Yup

    Which name should I call you? Iso, Phil, Philip, Erik, Tom, or Ramos (checked your IP)? How about taking a break from posting as so many people on here and take a trip outside? Get a life. I’m not even so sure why you’re so pissed at me. I’m not a fan of Romney or Obama, and the only time political humor has been used in articles is the Romney/Ryan gay sex pic and Obama constipated pic, poking fun at both parties. Me reporting these stories has nothing to do with my political views. I’m not posting a bunch of Ron Paul articles on here.

  • SuperSG

    Cmon Iso, you earned my respect by being a cold, ruthless, Mayans anal virginity taking Mayan hater. Dont be hating on Brett, there isnt anything criminal that Brett has said or done, so why are you acting like he is a jihadist?

  • Jake

    To everyone ripping on Brett, please shut the hell up. I happen to really enjoy this site and it gets very old seeing the constant nit-picking in the comments section. Isn’t music suppose to unite us, not divide us??

    As for the supposed political slant, I have a feeling that if Cornell had cancelled his Made in America appearance to play a Romney fund raiser, that Brett would have covered it the exact same way. So lay off it people.

  • Magic Mike Mazzarone

    Taylor Momsen was “Made in America.”

    God bless America.

  • SuperSG

    Jake is right. And for the idiots who wanna leave this site because of a stupid article? Fucking Go, if you feel Soooo offended by Brett Buchanans AUDACITY AT MAKING AN ASSUMPTION!!! :O
    Fuck you Josh, why do you try to act like the higher man when it only makes you come off sounding like a prick? Your music must be awful.

  • SUICYCO

    Brett, your site is awesome and I appreciate what you do. So sorry you have to put up with so many losers trippin’ over I don’t even know what.
