    Guns N’ Roses kicked off their 2017 summer tour at Slane Castle in Ireland on Saturday. Near the middle of the set, after ripping through a bunch of their greatest hits, the band took a moment to honor Chris Cornell with a cover of Soundgarden’s “Black Hole Sun”. Watch fan-shot footage below.

    “This one’s for you Chris,” the band tweeted prior to the performance.

    In 2015, GNR bassist Duff McKagan collaborated with Cornell as part of a Mad Season reunion performance staged by surviving members Mike McCready and Barrett Martin and also featuring the Seattle Symphony Orchestra.
