Eddie Vedder Unloads After Screwing Up Pearl Jam Song


Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder performed at the Innings Festival in Arizona earlier this month, and after a funny speech about how playing a ukulele can help get you laid, he played “Soon Forget.” Vedder screwed up the song just seconds in. He sarcastically said, “I fucked that up.”

He screwed up the song again a second time, and quipped, “Nah, I can’t even. I’m not getting laid tonight.” Vedder then successfully got through the song, continuing his stellar Innings Festival performance. Below is a video, and also a setlist via the Ten Club forums.
