He plays all these little cool parts that we wrote for Gigaton and he can sing all those background parts. Having him involved makes the band sound so full.”
Pearl Jam launched their 2022 tour in San Diego on May 3 marking their first live performance of the year. Klinghoffer will perform with the band for the entirety of the tour. Band frontman Eddie Vedder began the concert with a solo performance of Warren Zevon’s “Keep Me in Your Heart,” and then introduced the show’s opener, former Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist Josh Klinghoffer, who played with his solo band Pluralone before joining Pearl Jam for the rest of the evening.
