At Pearl Jam’s show in London earlier this week, Eddie Vedder offered a heartfelt apology to Pearl Jam fans for the band having to postpone their second O2 Arena show last month due to his vocal troubles.
“It’s been about three and a half weeks now since we were last here. I’d just like to send out all of my deepest apologies, and all my many thanks, and it all goes to the same people, all of you people out there, and everybody in this group. I never really had that happen before, so it broke my heart and then having a busted throat, having them at the same time is a really nightmare experience.
If it wasn’t for the energy that I got from these guys, our crew, and also our audience, it was everything [as far recovery]. So again, for all of the people who have changed their plans, and I know some of these familiar faces, you had to make some big changes. I’m so grateful, and so sorry, and so thankful to everyone. I deeply appreciate it, I look forward to playing for you guys all night.”
