Watch Eddie Vedder play stripped-back Beatles cover at Pearl Jam show

The frontman performed solo in the middle of the band's set

Eddie Vedder covered The Beatles as he performed solo during a recent Pearl Jam show.

The legendary grunge band are currently on tour in Europe, with the run of dates scheduled to end in London later this month. Afterwards, they will embark on a short tour of baseball stadiums in the US.

While playing at the O2 Arena in Prague on July 1, Vedder stripped things back midway through the set to cover The Beatles without the aid of his bandmates. The frontman treated fans to the first verse and chorus of ‘Help!’ before the rest of the group rejoined him for their own 2002 track ‘Help Help’.


Elsewhere in the set, Pearl Jam also covered Neil Young‘s ‘Rockin’ In The Free World’. Watch fan-shot footage of Vedder’s Beatles cover above.

Meanwhile, Vedder’s wife Jill recently hit back at Melania Trump onstage at Pearl Jam’s Milan show. Trump caused controversy when she wore a jacket that read “I really don’t care do u?” to visit children who had been separated from their families at the US-Mexico border.

Jill Vedder was invited onstage by her husband to celebrate their wedding anniversary and was seen wearing a jacket that read in response to Trump: “Yes we all care. Y don’t u?”

Pearl Jam were forced to reschedule the second of their two London shows last month after Vedder lost his voice. “He is on vocal rest for the next few days in an effort to heal and perform the remainder of the tour dates,” a statement posted to the band’s Twitter page read when the postponement was announced.


They later confirmed the show would take place on July 17 instead. Remaining tickets for the new date are available here. Ticketholders for the original show who can no longer make it can obtain a refund from their point of purchase.
