Pearl Jam’s 2015 South American tour continued onward last night as the band took the stage in Porto Alegre, Brazil. It was here, amidst a torrential downpour, where Eddie Vedder led the band in their first-ever live performance of Pink Floyd’s “Comfortably Numb”.
In concert, Pearl Jam have previously covered Pink Floyd’s “Mother” and “Another Brick in the Wall”, while Vedder joined Roger Waters on-stage to perform “Comfortably Numb”. This, however, marked the live debut of Pearl Jam’s interpretation.
During this same tour, Pearl Jam covered John Lennon’s “Imagine” as 40,000+ fans lit up Chile’s night sky. It was pretty epic.
