Pointfest canceled following Chris Cornell's death

Chris Cornell played his last show in Detroit Wednesday night.

ST. LOUIS - Pointfest has been canceled following the death of Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell.

Tickets purchased online at LiveNation.com or through Ticketmaster will automatically be refunded. Tickets purchased at the Hollywood Casino Amphitheater Box Office must be returned to the box office for full refund.

Pointfest was scheduled for May 20.

“We extend our deepest sympathies to the members of Soundgarden, their crew, management, and the Cornell Family,” Live Nation said in a press release.

Cornell, who had been on tour, died Wednesday night in Detriot. He’s known as the lead singer of Soundgarden and later Audioslave.

The Associated Press reports Wayne County spokeswoman Lisa Croff said Thursday morning that the autopsy is being conducted by the county Medical Examiner's office. She expects some information to be released about the results later in the day. Cornell was 52-years-old.
