WATCH: Aerosmith Dedicates “Dream On” Performance to Chris Cornell

The rock world was in shock last week, after the sudden death of Chris Cornell. Steven Tyler had posted a tribute to Cornell online, but Tyler felt like he needed to do more.

During the Aerosmith show at the Black Sea Arena in Batumi, Georgia, over the weekend, the members of Aerosmith led the audience in a moment of silence for the Soundgarden & Audioslave lead singer.

In the fan-shot footage below, Tyler told the crowd “Let’s take a moment of silence for Chris Cornell,” and added, “Dear God, may this man forever dream on.” Tyler sat a piano while an image of Cornell was broadcast over the screens in the arena, as the band performed “Dream On”.
