Cornell and McKagan to Join Mad Season for One Off Show

Grunge all stars Mad Season will be joined by Chris Cornell and Duff McKagan, for a one-off live date set to take place next month.

The pair will join remaining Mad Season members Mike McCready and Barrett Martin (Screaming Trees) along with The Seattle Symphony Orchestra  for the one time show.

Soundgarden's Cornell is expected to perform three tracks, ‘River of Deceit, ‘I Don’t Know Anything’ and ‘Long Gone Day.’ Whilst Duff will round out the band for the symphonic performance.

The show is part of the Sonic Evolution series, a cross genre project which pairs Seattle sound pioneers with the city symphony orchestra. It will feature solo and orchestral versions of tracks featured on Mad Season's only album "Above", released in 1995, as well as a new piece by Mike McCready.

The original Mad Season lineup featured late musicians Layne Staley on vocals and John Baker Saunders on bass.

The Seattle Symphony show will take place on Jan. 30th at Benaroya Hall in Seattle.
