Following the stunning and heartbreaking death of Chris Cornell, tributes to the late singer have been showing up everywhere. Last night in Indianapolis, Red Hot Chili Peppers delivered their own salute to the beloved musician.
During the band’s set at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Thursday evening, guitarist Josh Klinghoffer opened the encore by coming out on stage alone. He performed a cover of “Seasons”, a solo acoustic song Cornell had written for the Singles soundtrack. Watch video of the performance below (via Rolling Stone).
