Critics Down Under Review Songbook Tour

“Cornell's voice is huge. It is a thing of beauty. It is effortless…positively transcendent; post-modern torch singing will never be better than this.” – Simon Sweetman, Dominion Post

“No wonder he got a standing ovation – he deserved every second of it.” – Chris Schulz, New Zealand Herald

“Chris Cornell is one of the greatest singers of our generation… tonight, his voice was at its pinnacle.” – Mod Wolf, FasterLouder

“The intensity of his voice enveloped the room…[he] stripped everything back to bare bones of voice and melody and created a night of rare beauty.” – Polly Coufos, The Australian

“There aren’t too many musicians who are welcomed on stage by a standing ovation and then exceed their audience’s high expectations with their performance. Last night, Chris Cornell proved he is one of those select few…a performance that won’t be forgotten anytime soon.” – Lindsey Cuthbertson, Brisbane Times

Cornell banged out twenty-six songs in just under two-and-a-half hours, yet he still left the audience wanting more…one of those tours that people will be telling their grandchildren about.” – Brett Schewitz, Musicfeeds
