Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder joined Crowded House’s Neil Finn in concert this weekend.
Finn and his son Liam played a set at the Bourbon & Beyond festival in Louisville, Kentucky on Saturday (September 17) and were joined by Vedder and Pearl Jam touring guitarist (and former Red Hot Chili Peppers member) Josh Klinghoffer for two song finals.
The set opened with two songs with Crowded House’s “World Where You Live,” before covering Split Enz’s “I’m With You.”
Before the second theme, Finn told Vedder that it was the first song they ever played together, at a concert in New Zealand.
Vedder then replied, “No, I sang this song with you when I was 13. You were on vinyl and I was blasting it on my stereo. It was long before we played it live.”

The performance came after Pearl Jam completed their massive US tour this month. During the tour, Pearl Jam performed Wet Leg’s “Chaise Longue” as part of their star-studded show at Madison Square Garden in New York.
The band’s show — which marked the first time they’ve played there in six years — came as part of their ongoing North American tour in support of their 11th studio album, 2020’s “Gigaton.”
Pearl Jam incorporated “Chaise Longue”—the first single from English duo Wet Leg—into their own 1993 single “Daughter.”
Also on the night, Pearl Jam cover Prince’s ‘Purple Rain’, with singer Eddie Vedder wearing a sparkly jacket which he claimed was left in a dressing room by Harry Styles, who performed at the same venue on 8 September .
Pearl Jam later joined Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Chad Smith to perform “Rockin’ In The Free World”. At the end of the song, Smith hugged Pearl Jam drummer Matt Cameron, who was wearing a Taylor Hawkins T-shirt.
Earlier this month at their concert in Toronto, Pearl Jam covered the Beatles’ “Your Majesty” to pay tribute to the late Queen Elizabeth II.
They returned to the stage on July 25, after canceling three concerts due to Vedder’s vocal problems.
