Eddie Vedder Reacts To Foo Fighters Show Tragedy


Pearl Jam returned to Wrigley Field on Saturday night in Chicago, and Eddie Vedder discussed a horrific sexual assault at a recent Foo Fighters show at Wrigley.

“Before we get too far into the show I just want to say that the Foo Fighters were here a little while ago and they had some issues.” Ed wants to make sure that the men treat women with complete respect.

The Chicago Tribune reports that a fan was sexually assaulted at a Foo Fighters show at Wrigley Field last month.

A woman was followed into a portable bathroom and sexually assaulted at the Foo Fighters concert Sunday night at Wrigley Field, authorities said.

The assault happened about 9:30 p.m., according to police.

The woman, 23, reported that she was in line for food when a man groped her. She told police she left the line and walked to a port-a-potty and that the man entered behind her before she could lock the door and assaulted her.

The offender grabbed her neck and hit her head against the wall of the port-a-potty, according to police. She reported the incident to a nursing station, police were called and she was taken to a hospital by a private ambulance.

The man was described as white, 40 to 50 years old, 5-foot-9 with brown, thinning hair, and possibly a receding hairline. He was not in custody.

The port-a-potty was seized as evidence, according to Chicago police, and detectives were processing video.
