Matt Cameron Honoring Chris Cornell At Pearl Jam Show Will Melt Your Heart


Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder dedicated the band’s performance of “Come Back” to Chris Cornell at the band’s first show in two years on Tuesday night in Santiago, Chile, but that wasn’t the only Cornell tribute at the show.

Matt Cameron posted on Instagram, “First night of the tour in Santiago, sporting the Chris shirt!”

See photos below of Cameron wearing his beautiful Chris Cornell tribute show.

Theli posted on the Ten Club boards, “Show was amazing, best show in Chile. The band needs to play in this venue more for the upcoming South American tours.

There was a lot of hype for this show, and we weren’t disapointed.

Usually first show of a tour is kinda meh, but not this one. First time PJ played in a small venue (18.000) in South America, so it had to be good.

They started with Release which is a classic here in Chile (4 times it has been played here), the Of The Girl, was one of the biggest surprises of the night. For me, Of The Girl, Love Boat, Garden, Arounf the Bend, Confortably Numb were new songs, and of course Can’t Deny Me, which sounds really well live considering it was their first time.

Come Back for Chris was one the highlight of the show. Matt T-shirt was beautiful.”

Selma posted on the Ten Club boards, “A incredible night for sure. When I think of some moments of the concert, my skin bristles. Despite the impressive list of songs they gave us, “Come Back” in memory of Cornell was by far the most emotional. Half of the Arena sang at the top of its lungs with closed eyes and the rest directly cried. I was one of them. Thanks for being such a generous band … PJ love!”

      That’s an amazing shirt….the way the image comes to life when the wearer moves is amazing!

  • Raj

    Shirt is EPIC!

  • Cristiann

    That is a cool t-shirt. The design reminds me a little bit of the Starbucks siren, though.

    Performing “Come Back” for Chris was really sweet of them imo. They all must miss him so much.

      I just read this…see my reply above!

    I believe an Instagram user (allthingsoundgarden) had a hand in the design of the t-shirt.

    And not only has this user a t-shirt but Peter has the hoodie version.

    This is due to Matt giving these shirts and hoodies away as gifts.

    Lastly, I do love that t-shirt. :).

      I would love to own one. I teach prek and wore my godzilla soundgarden tshirt to work. It was a hit with 5 yr olds.

      • Olga Stewart

        That is great about those kids liking your t-shirt. :).

  • Olga Stewart

    And the crowd was really into the performance of “Even Flow”. :).

  • Kay B

    I’m not throwing shade at all but that shirt reminds me of Starbucks logo.

    For those who are interested, allthingssoundgarden has made a post in her Instagram page about her selling both a Chris Cornell and Soundgarden t-shirt that she designed.

    I will post the url to her IG page in a separate comment.

    Hope that helps.
