As the members of Sleater-Kinney and St. Vincent can attest, Pearl Jam frequently invite guests on stage to join them in performing Neil Young’s “Rockin’ in the Free World”. Last night in Perth, Australia, they welcomed Arcade Fire‘s Win Butler.
Pearl Jam and Arcade Fire were both part of the Big Day Out touring festival, as well as frequent competitors in games of pick-up basketball. As Perth was the last stop on the tour, the performance seemed like a fitting cap to the event.
