Watch Pearl Jam perform ‘Evil Little Goat’ for the first time ever

The Seattle band's current tour is full of surprises

Pearl Jam performed their track ‘Evil Little Goat’ for the first time ever during a recent show in Chicago. Check out the footage below.

The Eddie Vedder-fronted band are currently embarking on their Home X Away tour. So far, the stint has seen them surprise the crowds with covers of David Bowie, Chris Cornell, The White Stripes, The Beatles and more. Night one of their stop off in Chicago also saw former basketball player Dennis Rodman make an unexpected appearance.

Now, footage has emerged of the rockers dusting off an outtake from their 1991 LP, ‘Ten’. The band gave the track ‘Evil Little Goat’ its debut live airing on Monday evening (August 20) at an additional gig at Wrigley Field. “Doesn’t get much rarer than this!” one fan posted in response to the footage, with another hailing the moment as “amazing”.

Pearl Jam’s tour continues on September 2, with the band scheduled to play two shows at Boston’s Fenway Park.
Meanwhile, it has been reported that the group’s recent Seattle shows raised millions for their home city’s homeless community. 90 percent of the $11 million takings from the shows were donated to around 40 local organisations aiming to tackle the issue in the area.
In other news, Pearl Jam were hit with a backlash for an inappropriate gig poster. The artwork depicted the White House on fire, with Donald Trump’s rotting corpse being slowly devoured by a bald eagle on the White House lawn.
Last month, the band performed at Lisbon’s NOS Alive festival. Reviewing the show NME said: “Towards the end of the set, things take a turn into the ridiculous; a cover of ‘Comfortably Numb’ (their second Pink Floyd cover of the night) is shortly followed by a site-wide singalong to John Lennon’s unifying ‘Imagine’ – delivered in Vedder’s rough growl. And then, they only bloody go and bring on Jack White for a cover of ‘Rockin’ in the Free World’. With nigh on 50,000 people gathered around, it’s like a storytime of gigantic proportions.”
