Watch Eddie Vedder Smash Guitar At Dramatic Pearl Jam Show


Pearl Jam’s second Wrigley Field concert in Chicago a few days ago was dramatic much like their 2013 performance, as they had to wait to go on and perform past curfew due to inclement weather, and fans even had to be evacuated from the field at one point. At the end of a cover of The Who classic “Baba O’Reilly,” Eddie Vedder smashed his guitar just like his hero Pete Townshend. Watch video below.

Pearl Jam recently wrote on their website about The Home Shows in Seattle, “A HUGE thank you to the more than 160 businesses—both big and small—philanthropic partners, and individuals that have committed more than $11 million to fight homelessness.

Even more important is seeing our community and fans rally around this effort. Tens of thousands of you have taken action by signing up for The Home Shows mailing list, watching stories of our neighbors with lived experience with homelessness, volunteering, getting registered to vote – and voting.

And this is just the beginning. You have more influence than you think—and now is the time to use it.

Email your elected officials and let them know what you want from them. Ask your employers what they’re doing on this issue. Support businesses committed to ending homelessness. Go out of your way to say ‘Hello’ and ‘How can I help?’ when you see a neighbor experiencing homelessness.

Then, keep learning, donating, volunteering, paying attention, and believing. The more than 12,000 people living on the streets of our city need us to.”
