Watch Pearl Jam Cover Pink Floyd’s ‘Comfortably Numb’ in Brazil
Pearl Jam are currently on tour in South America, and last night (Nov. 11), they made a go of it in Porto Alegre, Brazil, despite being caught in the midst of a rainstorm. That didn’t slow the Eddie Vedder-led rockers down one bit though, as they treated concertgoers to a cover of Pink Floyd’s “Comfortably Numb.”
As Consequence of Sound points out, the show marked Pearl Jam’s first time performing that particular Pink Floyd song live, though Vedder has played it with Roger Waters in the past. Check out fan-shot footage at the top of the page.
On Saturday, the band heads to São Paulo. Then, they have three more stops in Brazil before playing a show in Bogotá, Colombia, on Nov. 25 followed by a concert in Mexico City on Nov. 28. Find more details at the band’s website. At a previous stop in Pearl Jam's South American travels, tens of thousands of fans illuminated a stadium in Santiago, Chile, during the band's beautiful cover of John Lennon's "Imagine."
