Pearl Jam played the final show of the North American leg of their tour in support of their 2020 album, Gigaton, with a concert Thursday night in Denver. Members of Seattle-based rock band Thunderpussy were brought out during the encore at Ball Arena.

Thunderpussy vocalist Molly Sides and guitarist Whitney Petty came out for a cover of The Who’s “Baba O’Riley.” The collaboration was the penultimate song of the night, and tour, as Pearl Jam capped the show with “Yellow Ledbetter.”

Prior to that, the encore began with frontman Eddie Vedder playing a solo rendition of Tom Petty’s “I Won’t Back Down.” That was followed by Mother Love Bone’s often coupled “Chloe Dancer” and “Crown Of Thorns.” The staple “Alive” was also part of Thursday’s encore.

Earlier in the main set, the concert began with Vedder and his bandmates starting the show in typical tour fashion by playing the first few songs seated. The setlist saw the tour’s only “Thin Air” and “Just Breathe,” both songs having last been played in 2018. Other notable selections included the tour’s second performances of “Spin The Black Circle” and “Faithfull.” The band faced the back of Ball Arena to deliver a cover of “Last Kiss” to the audience members behind the stage.

Pearl Jam currently has no scheduled tour dates. Watch additional audience-captured video from Thursday’s tour finale in Denver below:
