Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder Covers Cat Power In Miami


Pearl Jam played the second show of their North American Spring Tour last night at American Airlines Arena in Miami. As often happens, frontman Eddie Vedder took part of the show to play a number of songs solo on acoustic guitar, during which he debuted a Cat Power cover.

Vedder and crew go things going with “Corduroy” and filled the rest of the 17-song main set with career-spanning selections. Highlights included “Dissident,” “W.M.A.,” “Even Flow,” “Daughter,” the audience requested “Tremor Christ,” “Jeremy” and the closer “Rearviewmirror.”

For the first encore, Vedder took the stage alone with his acoustic guitar and performed “Good Woman” by Cat Power. While Eddie has covered the song before at his solo shows (even being joined by Chan Marshall for a performance at a gig in Florida in 2012), last night’s rendition marked the debut at a Pearl Jam concert. Vedder followed the debut with a solo take on “Just Breathe” before being joined by the full band for just the fifth time Pink Floyd’s “Comfortably Numb” has made a PJ setlist. Vedder dedicated the song to military veterans and mentioned the last time he saw Pink Floyd was in Miami.

The rest of the double encore featured such classics as “Once,” “Porch,” “Black” and “Alive” as well as the “Rockin’ In The Free World” Neil Young cover to close out the night. Pearl Jam heads next to Tampa’s Amalie Arena for a show on Monday. Watch audience shot footage of “Good Woman,” “Just Breathe” and “Comfortably Numb” below:
