During his concert in Auckland, New Zealand Ryan Adams honored Chris Cornell by covering Soundgarden’s “Black Hole Sun.” Similarly, Metallica riffed on that song at Gilette Stadium in Massachusetts. U2 also paid tribute to Cornell at their LA show by dedicating “Running To Stand Still” to Cornell and his family, while Aerosmith did the same with introducing “Dream On” in Batumi.
