Eddie Vedder Reveals If He’s Wearing Underwear At Pearl Jam Show


At Pearl Jam’s first show at Wrigley Field in Chicago on Saturday, Eddie Vedder told fans that he was not wearing any underwear.

According to the PearlJam.com forum recap, he greeted the audience and looked to see if anyone is on the roof.

“Great to be back on hallowed ground and I don’t mean just Wrigley Field but Chicago. Ed says “I am thinking about those players out here in those uniforms and how hot they must be. I am not even wearing underwear and I’m burning up out here.” Ed lets the audience know they will be playing some songs they don’t play very often. Ed is also grateful that the people in the neighborhood have allowed people to camp out while they wait to get inside.

He later said, “Is everybody out there? Fuck Yeah! Can we talk Cubs for a second.” Ed chats enthusiastically about the team and thanks Tom Rickets who was instrumental in getting the band to play after the rain delay. Ed says there have been some changes since the last time we played. Tom comes out and unveils the world championship trophy. Ed has a video of David Bote hitting a home run played on the screens and the band plays.
