It was the band’s first live appearance together since September 2011, having previously reunited live in 2003 and 2009 also.

The concert also saw the likes of Florence And The Machine, Band Of Horses, Norah Jones and Tom Jones perform live.

Meanwhilel, Pearl Jam recently premiered a new song called ‘Moline’ live at a show in the Illinois city that inspired the track. The song followed a surprise performance of the band’s 1996 album ‘No Code’ from start to finish.
