At a recent benefit concert called Hot Stove Cool Music in Boston to benefit urban youth and families, Eddie Vedder played a cover heavy set that touched on some pretty heavy hitters. The Pearl Jam frontman was backed by a great band who helped Vedder through a set that featured the Talking Heads’ “Love Building on Fire,” the Rolling Stones’ “Waiting on a Friend,” Bruce Springsteen’s “Bobby Jean,” Neil Young’s “Rockin’ in the Free World,” “The Who’s “The Kids Are Alright” and Aerosmith’s “Draw the Line.” You can check out video from the concert above and below.
The newly minted Rock & Roll Hall of Famer also busted out Pearl Jam classics “Corduroy” and “Better Man,” as Consequence of Sound reported. Chicago Cubs president Theo Epstein organized Hot Stove Cool Music. Vedder is a well-known Cubs fan (click here to watch Eddie Vedder sing “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” at Cubs World Series game) and is friends with Epstein. Legendary baseball reporter Peter Gammons was a part of Vedder’s backing band which also featured members of the bands Letter to Cleo, Buffalo Tom and Belly.
