A CELEBRATION OF CHRIS CORNELL 2020!
Desert Highways and The Bendigo Hotel are very proud to present the 4th annual A Celebration of Chris Cornell. A night to celebrate the music of the late Chris Cornell (Soundgarden, Audioslave, Temple Of The Dog). His vocal range as well as style was exceptional and second to none. Listed by many as an inspiration, he will continue to be one of the greatest vocalists to have ever been.The night is on at The Bendigo Hotel on Sat 23 May with a stellar lineup of local musicians to celebrate just what he meant to us all and continue to raise a glass in appreciation of the legacy he’s left behind. 100% of all money raised on the night will be proudly supporting beyondblue.
The 2017, 2018 and 2019 events were a great success, many thanx to all those involved and those that attended. We’re very much looking forward to doing it again for such a great cause.
The night will feature songs from throughout Cornell’s career including from his various bands to his solo work. Those musicians involved will be announced very soon.
We also have a selection of incredibly talented artists who are donating work to be sold / raffled and auctioned.
