Pearl Jam Covers The Beatles, Van Halen, Bruce Springsteen + More In Nebraska
At their recent gig at the Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln, Neb. (Oct. 9), Pearl Jam pulled out all the stops for their signature massive set (33 songs -- setlist below). From Van Halen to Bruce Springsteen to the Beatles, Pearl Jam threw in several special covers throughout their performance. For starters, check out Eddie Vedder's solo rendition of the Fab Four's 'You've Got to Hide Your Love Away' in the fan-filmed video above.
Vedder also covered John Lennon's 'Imagine' while in Nebraska -- an appropriate time to do it as it would have been his 74th birthday. (This performance was not much of a surprise considering Vedder officially released his cover of the iconic song recently.)
The first cover of the night came in the form of Van Halen's 'Eruption,' courtesy of guitarist Mike McCready.
And Pearl Jam also found themselves putting their spin on Springsteen's 'Open All Night,' from 1982's 'Nebraska.' This was the first time they ever performed that song live.
Finally, they've been known to do once or twice before, they covered Neil Young's classic, 'Keep On Rockin' In the Free World.'
Pearl Jam are on the road through the end of October -- including an appearance at the final night of this weekend’s Austin City Limits Music Festival tomorrow (Oct. 12). Get their full tour itinerary here.
