Contest: Chris Cornell at War Memorial Auditorium

Happy impending Halloween! I have some great news for you all. Our wonderful friends at AEG Live has decided to bestow upon us the most excellent of Halloween treats for our readers. Chris Cornell is coming to the War Memorial Auditorium on November 2nd and we have a pair of tickets to give to one of you fabulous people!

As many of you know, Chris Cornell was in a little band called Soundgarden. Let’s just say that my brother was a huge fan so I became a fan. Then Soundgarden was no more but Audioslave came to be. Say what you want about Audioslave, but they rocked, in large part because Chris Cornell rocks. Come on, no one can wail like that guy. I personally couldn’t be more excited to see him live.

But back to the contest! By now you all should know how it works. To be entered once comment (with your REAL name) telling me your favorite Chris Cornell moment. Easy peasy, right?

Well, if you want your name entered into the proverbial hat FIVE extra times then post a picture to our Facebook wall of you in a Halloween costume. Halloween might not have anything specific to do with this concert, but Cornell’s music is pretty damn well suited for the holiday, and well, it’s Halloween weekend.

Get on it, because I’ll be picking a winner by random on October 31st sometime in the early evening.

Good luck, and rock steadily!

    My favorite moment would have to be the Live in Sweden show. Awesome! I’ll post my costume Sunday too! 

  • Jason dapper

    I guess if I had to pick, I’d say him singing the James Bond theme b/c I am a huge 007 fan, Jack-in-the-box costume and all!

    Favorite moment is easily AudioSlave playing Cochise, Set it off and Gasoline on top of the Ed Sullivan Theatre for Letterman. Cornell’s voice piercing the air and the music just compliments that moment so perfectly. It’s epic.
