Pearl Jam premiere new song ‘Moline’ live – watch

Band also performed their 1996 album 'No Code' from start to finish

Pearl Jam have unveiled new song ‘Moline’ at a concert in the Illinois city that inspired the track.

At the iWireless Center in the city of Moline on Friday night (October 17), Eddie Vedder performed the song unaccompanied. According to WQAD, the 49-year-old revealed to the audience that the song was written specially for Moline and the Quad Cities – a group of cities at the Iowa-Illinois border – and marked the band’s first ever gig in the area.

The song followed a surprise performance on the band’s 1996 album ‘No Code’ from start to finish.


Last week, Vedder covered John Lennon’s ‘You’ve Got to Hide Your Love Away’ and ‘Imagine’ on what would have been the icon’s 74th birthday. The frontman first performed the Beatles cover for 2001 film I Am Sam, while ‘Imagine’ has become a staple of recent Pearl Jam gigs.
