Watch Pearl Jam Tap Chad Smith, Josh Klinghoffer for Neil Young Cover
The ad-hoc supergroup tore through Young’s 1989 Freedom anthem. Eddie Vedder tossed several tambourines into the crowd and doused himself with what looked like a gigantic bottle of wine. Throughout much of the track, Pearl Jam drummer Matt Cameron laid down a low tom rumble beneath Smith’s wild drumming, while Klinghoffer traded scorching solos with Mike McCready and Stone Gossard.
Pearl Jam will wrap their South American tour this weekend with a set at Lollapalooza Brazil, where Red Hot Chili Peppers are also scheduled to perform. Pearl Jam will then play a handful of European dates before embarking on a short U.S. stadium tour this summer, with gigs in Seattle, Missoula, Montana, Chicago and Boston.
