Pearl Jam have announced about Eddie Vedder:
“Cancellation Notice for Amsterdam Night 1
In spite of continuous medical treatment, Ed is regretfully still without a voice and unable to perform tonight’s show at Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam.
This is again the worst possible scenario for the band. We wholeheartedly apologize to all that worked so hard to put on the show and those supporters we looked forward to seeing.
Tickets will be refunded at the point of purchase.
Thank you enormously for your continued understanding. All of our energies will now be focused on having a show tomorrow.
A fan named Carol commented on Facebook, “All that matters is the health and well being of Eddie. I know how the fans feel, I was so excited for the Sacramento show, which was canceled on the same day. People traveled from all over. And as disappointed as they were, they made the best of it and found ways to connect with each other. Be well, Eddie. I know this is a tough decision for you – you always put your fans first. The very least we can do is reciprocate.”
A fan named Melinda added, “Voice teacher here- I don’t know the extent of damage or fatigue the vocal folds have experienced, but it will take quite some time to recover and then safely perform.
Hopefully fans will be understanding of this- it’s serious and glad it’s being taken seriously!!!! Wishing EV a quick recovery!!!”
