Miami, Fl (December 5, 2016) – Chris Cornell, one of the most renowned singers, songwriters, and musicians in the world, brought his Higher Truth World Tour to Lima, the capital of Peru, on Friday, December 2, for what was a magical evening at a historically significant archaeological complex.
Chris, a multifaceted artist best known as the lead vocalist, primary songwriter, and rhythm guitarist for Seattle rock band Soundgarden, and former lead vocalist and songwriter for the supergroup Audioslave, performed in front of 1,675 people at the adobe pyramid of Huaca Pucllana.
The show, promoted by Move Concerts, took place next to an ancient structure built from seven staggered platforms. The site once served as an important ceremonial and administrative center for the advancement of the Lima Culture, a society that developed in the central coastal area of Peru between the years 200 A.D. and 700 A.D.
Located in today’s modern-day district of Miraflores, Huaca Pucllana is one of the most significant ancient monuments in Lima and a testament to the importance of preserving a nation’s heritage and history in the face of modernity. Rarely does an artist get the chance to perform at such a venue, protected by the government, but a special permit was issued for Chris and his musicians to share their music in such an astounding setting. Chris had previously visited Peru in 2014 with Soundgarden.
The Higher Truth World Tour is in support of Chris’ fourth solo studio album of the same name, released in 2015. The Lima show is part of a worldwide tour which includes Latin America and Europe.
