AUDIOSLAVE, the supergroup made up of former Soundgarden frontman CHRIS CORNELL and the three-fourths of RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE, made their official live debut in LA over the weekend.
The outfit were performing as part of night one of LA radio station KROQ’s ‘Almost Acoustic Christmas’ concert series.
Audioslave hit the stage at the Universal Ampitheatre shortly before 10pm, playing six songs off their self-titled debut.
Despite being on the same bill as New Found Glory, Billy Corgan’s Zwan, No Doubt, Disturbed and P.O.D., Audioslave were clearly the biggest draw of the night bringing the security out in force to clear packed aisles flooded with patrons including members of System Of A Down. The sides of the stage were also busting with backstage guests including [a][/a] frontman Serj Tankian and bassist Shavo Odadjian.
Cornell, dressed in a white tank top and low riding blue trousers led the group for about 40 minutes to a capacity house in the thousands.
Audioslave’s full set list was: ‘Light My Way’
‘Set It Off’
‘Like A Stone’
‘Shadow On the Sun’
