Watch Guns N' Roses' Epic 'Black Hole Sun' Tribute to Chris Cornell at Irish Castle
Kicking off the latest leg of their Not In This Lifetime Tour on Saturday (May 27), Guns N’ Roses honored the life of late Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell with a performance of the band's classic hit "Black Hole Sun" in front of a sold-out crowd of 80,000 at Ireland’s Slane Castle.
"This one's for you Chris. Black Hole Sun. Live from Slane, Ireland," the band's Twitter shared moments after the performance.

Earlier in the week, Norah Jones also covered "Black Hole Sun," performing the Superunknown classic at Detroit's Fox Theatre, the same venue where Cornell played his final show.
Cornell was laid to rest Friday (May 26) at a private memorial at Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles. The 52-year-old rocker was found dead in his hotel room May 18.
