Audioslave to reunite tomorrow

As President-elect Donald Trump prepares to move into the chair of the most powerful office on the planet his impending inauguration has proved the catalyst for the first Audioslave live performance in ten years.

Audioslave will perform tomorrow night (Friday, January 20) at the Teragram Ballroom in Los Angeles for the Anti-Inaugural Ball, protesting Trump's inauguration.

Also booked to play on the Anti-Inaugural Ball are Propehts of Rage, Vic Mensa, Jackson Browne, Jack Black and The Los Angeles Freedom Choir.

Fronted by Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell, Audioslave featured Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello, bassist Tim Commerford and drummer Brad Wilk.

Despite winding the band up back in 2007 the door has never been closed on Audioslave in the future says Morello.

“I love Chris and I love what we did together," he told Music Radar. “That door has certainly never closed in any way, but right now, it's looking like we're pretty busy. We're in the middle of a North American tour [with Prophets of Rage], I'm also working on a record of my own and the other guys have things going on, too.

“But whatever happens in the future, Chris is one of the greatest singers of all time, and there's no way I couldn't be proud of the shows and music we played together.”
