Vedder then played a solo set during which RHCP guitarist Josh Klinghoffer came out for a cover of Jerry Hannan’s “Society,” which Vedder recorded for the Into The Wild soundtrack. Klinghoffer also joined Vedder on “Corduroy.” Members of the Silverlake Conservatory choir assisted Vedder on “Better Man” and “Hard Sun.”

The collaboration began with Prince’s “Purple Rain” that also included one of the choir members.
