Watch Eddie Vedder Play a Solo Rendition of U2’s ‘A Sort of Homecoming’
Pearl Jam just wrapped their nine-show tour of South America and Mexico over the weekend, but not before churning out another notable cover. During their show on Nov. 25 in Bogota, Colombia, Eddie Vedder played a little bit of U2's "A Sort of Homecoming" (from their 1984 album The Unforgettable Fire) before the rest of Pearl Jam segued into their own song "MFC" (from 1998's Yield). Check out fan footage above.
The tour proved to be an epic one for fans lucky enough to catch it. Not only did each concert last more than three hours, but Pearl Jam treated massive crowds to a ton of poignant covers including John Lennon's "Imagine" and (in the wake of the Paris attacks) Eagles of Death Metal's "I Want You So Hard (Boy's Bad News)."
But according to Pearl jam's official site, this is only the second time the band took on this particular U2 track. They also played it briefly at a 2006 show in Sydney, Australia.
