Chris Cornell has announced a new solo tour for the Fall that includes two dates in the Connecticut area.

The tour is a follow up to the 2011 ‘Songbook’ tour, featuring Cornell performing solo acoustic arrangements of songs across his career. It will be the first time he performs such versions of Soundgarden’s 2012 release ‘King Animal,’ the group’s first album in 16 years.

Like the previous tour, Cornell will be performing at more intimate venues. His 2011 tour brought him to the Ridgefield Playhouse and Torrington’s Warner Theatre in Connecticut.

Among the 30 dates taking Cornell across most of Northern United States are a show at Northampton’s Calvin Theater on Nov. 17, and a performance at the Shubert Theater in New Haven Nov. 20.

The Calvin Theater performance goes for $38, $48, and $58. Tickets will be available Friday, Aug. 16, through iheg.com. Tickets to the Shubert Theater concert are $45, $55, and $65, and go on sale Friday, Aug. 16 at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster.

A dollar from every ticket sold will go to benefit the newly formed Chris and Vicky Cornell Foundation, and a portion of the proceeds benefit Childhaven’s Creative Music Therapy Program. Click here for more information on the program.

An American Express cardholder presale starts on Aug. 14, and venue presales begin the next day, Aug. 15.
