Watch Eddie Vedder Cover Springsteen, Stones And More At Boston Benefit

Last Saturday, Eddie Vedder performed at Boston’s Paradise Rock Club as part of the annual Hot Stove Cool Music benefit concert, created by Chicago Cubs president Theo Epstein.

For the show, Vedder was backed by members of Letters To Cleo, Buffalo Tom, and Belly, as well as baseball reporter Peter Gammons.

Per usual, Vedder busted out some wild covers in addition to Pearl Jam material, including songs by Bruce Springsteen, The Who, The Rolling Stones, Squeeze, Aerosmith, Neil Young, Talking Heads, Split Enz, Pink Floyd and more.

Fan footage has surfaced from some of the performances, and finds Vedder in great spirits, ripping through the songs in the intimate space and performing the encore in a backwards cubs helmet.
