The Scream tour was a concert tour by singer-songwriter Chris Cornell, taking place in 2009, supporting his third solo studio album Scream, his R&B/pop collaboration with producer Timbaland.

The tour started with a special short European leg, made out of 5 dates, especially to promote the release of the album. During these shows, the album was played as a whole from beginning to end, with a special 5-song encore, made up of other Chris Cornell songs, mostly Soundgarden songs.

During the next legs of the tour, the setlist was different almost every night and even though some songs remained a staple for every night, setlists were diverse and included songs from all of Cornell's solo albums, including Soundgarden, Temple of the Dog and Audioslave, as well as some covers of songs by Michael Jackson, Bob Marley, Led Zeppelin and more.

Between May 11–28, 2009, Cornell played a whole French tour in support of Lenny Kravitz. The French leg included 11 shows, after which Cornell went on a full European tour, playing mostly festival dates such as Rock am Ring, Nova Rock and Download Festival, as well as playing non-festival club shows in such countries as Belgium, Germany, Luxembourg, Denmark, Israel and more.

Cornell was set to headline the Sunset Strip Music Festival in Los Angeles on September 12, 2009, but it was announced on September 2, that this performance will be cancelled due to unforeseen band scheduling conflicts. It was speculated that Cornell will announce further dates instead of that dates, as well as more US dates to make up the second headlining North American leg of the tour, though these plans were eventually cancelled, due to the album's poor reception.[1] Cornell decided to stop promoting the album and instead going on a short break, during which he reunited with Soundgarden.
