EPIC/INTERSCOPE TO RELEASE AUDIOSLAVE’s LIVE IN CUBA

HISTORIC CONCERT PERFORMANCE CAPTURED ON SPECIAL DOUBLE-DISC SET FEATURING DVD AND BONUS CD SET FEATURES FIRST-EVER AUDIOSLAVE RECORDINGS OF SOUNDGARDEN AND RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE TRACKS

This past May, Audioslave made international headlines by becoming the first American rock band to ever perform in U.S.-embargoed Cuba. More than 60,000 screaming fans stormed Havanas Anti-Imperialist Plaza to catch the May 6th show and the band didnt disappoint. The multi-Platinum, critically acclaimed band gave an absolutely electrifying performance, tearing through a free two-and-a-half hour show. The historic event is captured on the Epic/Interscope release LIVE IN CUBA, a deluxe 18-song double-disc package that includes a DVD featuring a 30-minute documentary, live concert footage and an additional TV special on the event, along with a bonus live CD taken from Audioslaves recent AOL Sessions performance. The set arrives in stores on October 18th.

Audioslave (driven by Chris Cornells stirring vocals, Tom Morello’s
innovative guitar and the razor-sharp rhythm section of bassist Tim
Commerford and drummer Brad Wilk) treated the packed-house crowd to a mix filled with hits from their multi-platinum-selling 2003 debut.

Its worth noting that LIVE IN CUBA is the first and only recording to feature ex-Soundgarden vocalist Cornell and ex-Rage members Morello, Commerford and Wilk performing songs from their former bands.

The event was organized by the U.S. Treasury Department and the Instituto Cubano de la Musica and took place, ironically enough, in a plaza built five years ago as a place for mass protest against the US government. In a recent interview with Billboard, Morello recalled the monumental show. We had no idea if it was going to be 70 people or 70,000, he said. It turns out it was the lattermany of whom were clearly fans of the band. A lot of them were singing along, some were making a mosh pit, some were salsa-ing, some were pogo-ing. A lot of them just couldn’t believe it was really happening.

the documentary and 14 live tracks.
