Eddie Vedder Makes Surprise Broadway Show Appearance


Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder surprised fans by showing up in the crowd to watch a recent Bruce Springsteen Broadway performance at the Walter Kerr Theater.

The tickets for the show, which started last year, come in two price ranges, $500 to $850 and $75 to $400, and there is a two ticket limit per customer. The Verified Fan system seeks to differentiate real fans from software, or bots, used by scalpers. Tickets are going for thousands on StubHub.

Eddie Vedder brought his mother Karen to a Bruce Springsteen show earlier this year to celebrate her 75th birthday on Saturday.

Eddie’s wife Jill Vedder wrote on Instagram at the time, “Happy Birthday Gramma Karen! #theoriginalboss #springsteenonbroadway #familyphoto #75 #thankyoupatty.”

In March 2016 in Seattle, Springsteen stunned the crowd by bringing out Eddie Vedder as a special guest. Together, the two rock titans — who were literally glowing while in each other’s presence — teamed up to perform Born in the USA track “Bobby Jean”. Vedder and Springsteen also performed together in 2014.
