Chris Cornell to front Mad Season show with Seattle Symphony

Sonic Evolution Seattle

Soundgarden vocalist Chris Cornell is set to front a reunion by Seattle supergroup Mad Season.

The live show will also feature original Mad Season members Mike McCready (Pearl Jam) and Barrett Martin (Screaming Trees) performing alongside former Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan.

The group will play a set at the 4th annual Sonic Evolution show, hosted by the Seattle Symphony Orchestra and taking place on the 30th of January at the city’s Benaroya Hall.

Symphony conductor Ludovic Morlot says: “With this collaboration we’re both coming out of our normal comfort zones. This is an incredible opportunity to learn from one another and give ourselves chances to grow as artists.”

Mad Season were active between 1994 and 1999. Their career was brought to a premature end following the death of bassist John Baker Saunders and the passing of frontman Layne Staley (Alice In Chains).

The Sonic Evolution shows pair orchestral musicians with Seattle’s rock icons. The fourth annual concert will include “Waking The Horizon”, a new composition by McCready, interpreted by the symphony orchestra, as well as a set featuring Mad Season songs “River Of Deceit”, “I Don’t Know Anything” and “Long Gone Day”.

Tickets for the show are on sale now.
