Roger Waters’ Us + Them Tour was in Chicago over the weekend for a pair of shows at the United Center. During the show on Sunday evening, Waters invited up one of the city’s favorite rock and roll sons, Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder, to help close out the 23-song set with a performance of the Pink Floyd prog-rock anthem, "Comfortably Numb."
As seen in the fan-shot video above, Vedder takes his place on stage alongside the classic rock bassist to help Waters perform the 1980 tune with some acoustic guitar and vocal work. The two had famously performed the same song together at Madison Square Garden in 2012 for the star-studded '12-12-12’ concert to help raise money for those affected by Hurricane Sandy a month earlier.
Vedder is one of Chicago's most famous residents, having spent his formative years growing up in the suburb of Evanston, Illinois before moving away in the mid-1970s. The Pearl Jam singer has been a vocal supporter (pun intended) of the city's Chicago Cubs baseball team, having even welcomed players on stage during his shows in the past. Vedder also performed “Take Me Out To The Ballgame” during game five of the World Series this past October, showing his support for the Cubs in winning their first world title in over 100 years.
Waters’ Us + Them Tour will continue trekking across North America throughout the rest of summer and into fall. Tickets for select shows on the tour can be purchased by clicking here.
