Meanwhile, Pearl Jam had to cancel some shows recently amid Vedder’s health issues. The band is scheduled to return to a live stage only in September when they start their Autumn North American tour. The band kicked off the tour on Sept. 1 in Quebec City, Canada.
The concert also served to promote the band’s latest album, 2020’s “Gigaton”, which was featured on the setlist with 5 songs. Besides the usual Pearl Jam classics, the group included a version of Prince’s “Purple Rain” with a little help from touring collaborator Josh Klinghoffer.
The band cancelled their 3 last shows. It happened as there were concerns over frontman Eddie Vedder’s vocal health. Though they were told to stop the tour, the band went back to action to wrap up their European Summer tour.
