Chris Cornell posted the following bulletin to fans on his Myspace on Monday (August 6):
Hello this is Chris Cornell.
Over the past several months, several incidents have taken place where others felt the need to engage in activities pretending to be me. I have been wanting to make a clear statement to fans, friends and anyone this may concern; under no circumstances, under any name or address do I or have I ever communicated or corresponded with anyone online or otherwise.
I also wish to apologize to the fans in Denver and Salt Lake City for the postponed shows. This was due to a scheduling oversight by a representative that no longer works with me. I look forward to making these dates up in the fall.
Thank you all for your continued support.
