As part of their set, Tool paid tribute to Chris Cornell in honor of the one-year anniversary of his death this past Friday. According to Alternative Nation, lead singer Maynard James Keenan told the crowd that they were dedicating their entire set to the friends and family of Cornell, who was scheduled to headline the festival with Soundgarden last year prior to his death.
