The 11th annual Rock on the Range was the festival’s biggest year yet, with a sellout crowd of 135,000 in attendance May 19, 20 and 21 at Mapfre Stadium in Columbus, Ohio. Though the weekend began with challenges due to inclement weather and the unexpected tragedy of Chris Cornell’s passing, in the end the music and performances shone through. Through these challenges, Rock on the Range carried on, sets were rescheduled to accommodate the weather delays, and the weekend was capped by a first-ever ROTR performance from the legendary Metallica.

Chris Cornell

Live Metal is devastated by the passing of Chris Cornell last night in Detroit. He was one of the most amazing voices and songwriters in any genre of music, in any generation. Honoring his family’s request for privacy, we will not report or comment on any rumors or unofficial information regarding his death. Instead, we will celebrate his life with the many hours of great music he gave us with Soundgarden, Temple of the Dog, Audioslave and as a solo artist.

At Live Metal, we were lucky enough to see and photograph Chris multiple times, including less than two weeks ago at Carolina Rebellion and last summer on his solo acoustic tour, one of the best shows we’ve ever seen. He had lost none of his inhuman range as a vocalist, and his most recent release, his 2015 solo album Higher Truth, is one of his finest works. Another one of the greats gone too soon.
