Eddie Vedder unloaded on President Donald Trump and ICE at Pearl Jam’s show in London on Monday.
During extended intro to “Love Boat Captain” Ed says “I would like to send this one to the guy who is in White House back in the United States. I would like him to hear it but he doesn’t listen to music or read books. Could someone tweet this to him or something? For Mom’s and Dad’s and children being separated at the border. That isn’t the country I remember.” Ed asks Mike to get aggressive and then yells “fuck you, fuck you”)
He later ranted again before “Daughter” and “WMA.”
“When you think about the border and think about the states and they make it seem normal I hope they remember that next time it could be them…Fuck, I am still thinking about that. This is a love song from a mother to her child.”
He sang, “Police man..border man..” and asked the audience for help. He also sang, “Border man stopped my brother today.”
