There have been rumors of Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder announcing that he would move to Spain with his family in November.

Eddie Vedder was seemingly joking

It has come to light that he certainly said it. He talked about how much better his Spanish would be after living there for four years. He was trying to read what he had prepared in Spanish but was struggling. He then said that he would probably move to Barcelona around November with everyone else and that after 5- 6 months he’d be maybe fluent enough to try it again without too much issues.

However, it seems that he was joking. It’s the same humor as his “I quit ages ago” comment about smoking in a recent interview. He’s been this way since way back in the beginning. Even in ’92, there were some interviews where he did similar things.

Meanwhile, Vedder recently talked about his illness which led to the band recently announcing that they were forced to cancel a handful of European Stadiums shows.

Pearl Jam postponed three shows due to an illness in the band. On June 30, Eddie Vedder and co. took to social media and announced that their two concerts in Berlin on July 2 and July 3 had been called off.

Previously, the band called off a concert at London’s Tottenham Hotspur Stadium that was slated to take place on Saturday, June 29th was canceled due to illness in the band. and refunds would be available at the point of purchase. Pearl Jam returned to the stage in Barcelona Saturday night and frontman Eddie Vedder shed light on the health issues he was dealing with.

A video clip posted to social media depicted Eddie Vedder addressing the crowd before a performance of “Wasted Reprise,” sharing, “the last week it almost felt like a near death experience. It was very uncomfortable and it got frightening.”

The comments came following a performance of “Just Breathe,” with Vedder saying the issue was chest-related. “It felt like maybe you couldn’t breathe, maybe you wouldn’t make it through the night, maybe you’d have to go to the hospital,” he said.

Eddie then noted that it wasn’t just him, and “a few of us” had it.

“You just realize how precious this life is, how lucky we are to have been living on a planet where we could go round and play to incredible people like the people in this room here tonight,” he added. “So, it was a poignant experience. I won’t be forgetting it anytime soon and we won’t be forgetting tonight anytime soon.”
