Chris Cornell carries on with November House of Blues concert

Like a twice-divorced, middle-aged Gen Xer, grunge-icon Chris Cornell continues on with his musical career. You’ll remember a decade ago Cornell’s Seattle act Soundgarden called it quits. Now comes word that the supergroup Audioslave is also finished, forcing Cornell back to solo waters. While his most recent album “Carry On” falls flat, the good news is the wailing singer will be playing material from his entire catalog on an upcoming stateside jaunt. Fans can expect to here tunes by Soundgarden, Audioslave and even Temple of the Dog when Cornell plays Cleveland Nov. 11 at the House of Blues. Tickets are $38.50.

House of Blues date
It’s been more than five years since emo act Jimmy Eat World entertained rock audiences with its rock hit “The Middle.” The Arizona-based act returns to the new CD bin on Oct. 16 with its latest album “Chase the Light.” The outfit is also touring this fall, including a Nov. 2 show at the House of Blues. Tickets are $25. Tickets for both House of Blues dates are now on sale at all Ticketmaster locations.

Oops, my bad!
Did You Hear apologizes to fans of Disney Channel TV show “Hannah Montana” for incorrectly listing the on-sale ticket date for the upcoming show featuring Miley Cyrus Jan. 3 at Quicken Loans Arena as last weekend. The truth is tickets ($26 to $56) for the Cleveland date go on sale at 10 a.m. TODAY through all Ticketmaster locations. 

Grog Shop show
Lead by Broken Social Scene members Ohad Benetrict and Charles Spearin, Do Make Say Think is hitting the road in support of its latest effort “You, You’re a History in Rust.” The Canadian act makes a stop in Northeast Ohio on Oct. 5 at the Grog Shop. Tickets are $12, and are now on sale at all Ticketmaster locations.

Beachland gigs
If you’re checking out the upcoming Drive-By-Truckers show in Cleveland Oct. 24 at the Beachland Ballroom, be sure to get there early to catch 25-year-old Texas troubadour Ryan Bingham, who recently released his latest album “Mescalito.” Tickets are $18.

After touring alongside The Flaming Lips and Lucero, American Princes is hitting the road for a solo jaunt that brings the indie rock act to Ohio for an Oct. 23 show at the Beachland Tavern. The Arkansas-based band hopes to release its follow-up to last year’s “Less and Less” in 2008. Tickets for the show are $7. Tickets for both Beachland dates are now on sale at www.beachlandballroom.com.

Notes
The Nov. 2 Peter, Paul & Mary show at the Palace Theatre has been postponed. A rescheduled date has been set for May 17 in the State Theatre. Ticket holders will automatically be mailed new tickets.
