He taught me how to be heavy and look for beauty at the same time. He was a huge influence on me and he was a huge influence on our band and so many other bands here tonight. So, I just wanted to say to Chris, I love you wherever you are. We will never forget you.”

“For the lion that was Chris Cornell, tonight we send a prayer to his lioness, to Vicky”

U2 are currently in the middle of a tour marking the 30th anniversary of their classic Joshua Tree album. At last night’s stop in Pasadena, California, however, the concert went from a celebratory tone to a mournful one as the band took time honor Chris Cornell. The Irish rock icons dedicated “Running to Stand Still” to the late Seattle legend.

“For the lion that was Chris Cornell, tonight we send a prayer to his lioness, to Vicky,” Bono said as he introduced the song. He continued, mentioning each of Cornell’s children, “And to Christopher and Toni and Lilly, the whole family. A beautiful, sweet soul, Chris Cornell.” Watch video of the dedication and performance above.

U2 also played Soundgarden’s “Black Hole Sun” over the loud speaker prior to the concert’s start.
