Watch Audioslave Reunite For First Time In 12 Years


Audioslave reunited at last night’s Prophets of Rage show in Los Angeles at the Teragram Ballroom for a three song set.

Like a Stone
Show Me How To Live

Chris Cornell proclaimed during the performance, “12 years a long time coming. Make some noise for these guys, and the rest of Prophets of Rage.” Everyone at the show then performed “Killing In The Name.”

Here are 5 things that could happen if the reunion becomes more than a one off.


Revelations material performed live

Audioslave never toured their final album Revelations in 2006, breaking up just a few months after the album’s release in February 2007. All Audioslave fans would definitely like to see the band debut some highlights from Revelations live, including “Original Fire” and the album’s title track “Revelations.” While Chris Cornell performed songs from the album live in the past, it would be a treat for Audioslave to finally perform them live.


More Prophets of Rage surprises & festival appearances

If Audioslave’s reunion continues beyond tonight, but remains a limited project, the band popping up as a surprise at select Prophets of Rage shows and for lucrative festival performances could be on the cards.


A new album

If Audioslave release a new album, in all likelihood it would not be possible until mid to late 2018 as Chris Cornell is committed to releasing a new album with Soundgarden later this year, and Prophets of Rage are also writing original material. 2018 could be the year for Audioslave though if the band want to return to the studio to follow up 2006’s Revelations.

A return to Cuba

Audioslave made history over a decade ago with their historic performance in Cuba. Yes, they did go to Cuba before The Rolling Stones! Could Audioslave return to Cuba for another huge show, or perhaps perform in another historic location? It would make sense with the band’s history.


An Audioslave, Soundgarden, and Prophets of Rage tour

While Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, and Temple of the Dog have not yet fulfilled fans fantasies of a trio tour featuring those three bands, Soundgarden, Audioslave, and Prophets of Rage could fill up arenas and some baseball stadiums by uniting for a tour. Chris Cornell has shown how incredible his stamina can be by performing very long shows all on his own with his Songbook tours, why couldn’t he perform something like 30 total songs (15 with Audioslave, 15 with Soundgarden) on a Audioslave, Soundgarden, and Prophets of Rage tour? Maybe Zack de la Rocha could be enticed to show up for a few guest performances too!
