Pearl Jam continued their swing through Europe on Saturday night with headlining appearance at the NOS Alive Festival in Lisbon, Portugal. The venerable Seattle rock band one again delivered a mix of material from throughout their career that featured a tour debut and a sit-in from Jack White during their encore.

Eddie Vedder & Co. got their night in the land of the three F’s going with “Low Light” from their 1998 release Yield. After serving up “Better Man” the band delivered their second stab at “Go” this summer. From there, PJ would focus the bulk of their 18-song main set on material from Ten and Vs.. “Black,” “Even Flow” and “Jeremy” were all featured from their 1991 debut, while their sophomore album was represented by “Daughter,” “Rearviewmirror” and the tour debut of “Rats” which was busted out for the first time since May 2016 at Madison Square Garden.

The highlight of the night came during the grunge-era act’s extended encore. Pearl Jam looked to back-to-back covers to open things up serving up John Lennon’s “Imagine” and Pink Floyd’s “Comfortably Numb.” “Porch” followed as they worked in a jam on The White Stripes’ “Seven Nation Army” for Jack White who was spotted taking in the band’s set side stage. After a take on “Alive,” Vedder invited White out to join them. The singer-guitarist, who played the main stage with his band prior to Pearl Jam’s set, lent his talents to a take on a Neil Young’s “Rockin’ In The Free World” to close out the show. White got a chance to play guitar god on the frequent PJ cover unleashing a few fierce solos throughout the tune.
