Chris Cornell Rocks Solo Act, Introduces Son
But the highlight of the sold-out show at Los Angeles' Avalon came when he carried his baby son Chris out onto the stage and asked his female fans to scream at the tot.
Wearing earphones and army fatigues, "Baby Chris" was stunned by his father's fans and clapped as his proud dad introduced him.
Cornell handed the tot over to his mother in the wings, adding, "This song is for you little buddy," before leading his new band into a rendition of Seasons from the Singles soundtrack.
As well as his version of Billie Jean, Cornell also performed new tunes Scar On The Sky and No Such Thing. He also played Audioslave favorites Gasoline and Cochise, and ended with Soundgarden's classic Black Hole Sun after playing the grunge act's Rusty Cage earlier in the show.
And there was even a treat for his devotees - a version of grunge supergroup Temple of The Dog's Say Hello 2 Heaven.
Cornell announced his solo plans after quitting Audioslave in February, explaining he and his bandmates "weren't particularly getting along well."
