John McEnroe recently played with Pearl Jam

Tennis legend John McEnroe recently joined forces with Pearl Jam as the fans were thrilled at the weekend. He played guitar on a cover of Neil Young’s Rockin’ In The Free World. Sporting a Who t-shirt, McEnroe took to the stage on the first of the band’s two nights at the American Express presents BST festival, which took place in London’s Hyde Park on July 8.

The tennis ace’s appearance came at the climax of the rapturously-received show, the band’s first London outdoor summertime show since 2010. Louder‘s man on the scene, Stephen Hill, noted: “Of all the superstar artists doing the rounds these days, none appear to have kept such obvious joie de vivre about playing live and creating as Pearl Jam do.”

Pearl Jam also had a special guest for their show-closing song on night two of their Hyde Park residency, with former Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr joining the quintet on a cover of The Who’s Baba O’Riley.

Adam recently revisited his original character, Opera Man, and shared where he got the inspiration as well as the story of performing Opera Man as Eddie Vedder from Pearl Jam.

At a recent concert, Vedder explained to Pearl Jam fans his idea of how a woman should respond if the man they start dating is against legalized abortion. The Pearl Jam singer’s remarks came amid a performance of the rock band’s 1995 Vitalogy single “Not for You” during their May 6 concert at the Kia Forum near Los Angeles.

They likely were spurred by that week’s Politico leak of a U.S. Supreme Court draft. The draft reportedly indicated the court’s plans to overturn Roe v. Wade, the 1973 decision that protects a pregnant woman’s right to choose to have an abortion.

In a fan-captured clip, Vedder says, “I think if you’re a girl or woman out there, and the guy you’re starting to go out with — who you’re thinking about maybe going all the way with — I think if that guy is not pro-choice, then he shouldn’t be allowed to f*** you.”
