Chris Cornell In 2017

We mark one year since the tragic passing of the Soundgarden singer by looking back at his last ever performance.

Today marks one year since the passing of Chris Cornell, who tragically lost his life, aged 52, to suicide.

The grunge icon performed a show in Detroit with Soundgarden just hours before his death, showing what fine voice he was in. 

Watch the footage of his final ever performance below.

Alex Cariaga, who shot the footage, said "They played for two hours straight with no issues that I could see or hear." 

The cause of Cornell's death is still unknown. As can be seen from the footage, his voice was was still as strong as it's ever been.

Soundgarden, along with Nirvana, spearheaded the grunge movement in the 90s, and Cornell later went on to form Audioslave with Rage Against The Machine's Tom Morello. 

Cornell's last message online referenced Soungarden's gig in the city, and read: "#Detroit finally back to Rock City!!!! @soundgarden #nomorebullshit".

RIP Chris Cornell.

Shinoda will be performing songs from Post Traumatic when he appears at Reading and Leeds Festivals this August in the UK.
