Pearl Jam singer Eddie Vedder just can’t help but find new ways to perform inside, and now apparently outside of Wrigley Field in Chicago. Perhaps that’s just the way life is for diehard Chicago Cubs fans, for which Vedder certainly qualifies. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer was spotted outside of his favorite ballpark on Friday night following a Cubs victory over MLB rivals the St. Louis Cardinals, which Vedder celebrated by picking up a guitar and riffing away to some Pearl Jam tunes alongside a drumming street busker.
As seen in the fan-shot video above, Vedder jams away alongside the fellow street performer as the two noodle around a loose version of “Corduroy” from Pearl Jam’s 1994 Vitalogy album. The two look to be having a pretty fun time to themselves before onlookers and Cubs fans leaving the stadium beginning cheering on in support and possibly realizing who the guy in the hat playing guitar really is.
Vedder was just one of the notable faces associated with the Chicago Cubs historic World Series run back in 2016. The 52-year-old singer had the opportunity of serenading Wrigley Field during game 5 of the World Series last year with his own version of the classic, “Take Me Out To The Ball Game.” Earlier this summer the famous rock band announced their Let’s Play Two concert film and live album, which is centered around the team’s memorable World Series experience as well as Vedder’s special connection to his hometown team.
