Watch Eddie Vedder Dedicate Rarity ‘Man Of The Hour’ To Layne Staley At Wrigley

first_imgLast night, Pearl Jam rocked Wrigley Field with a marathon performance, giving fans over thirty songs in their few hours of playing at the famed Chicago venue. We mentioned one of the more upbeat moments from the show last night, when Chicago Bulls star Dennis Rodman made a guest appearance during “Black, Red, Yellow.” Later on in the show, however, Eddie Vedder brought things to an emotional peak when he started strumming the introduction to “Man Of The Hour.”The relative rarity hadn’t been played since 2014, making its bust out at Wrigley Field all the more special. Vedder spoke about a couple in attendance who postponed their wedding due to one of their father’s death, and the resiliency of the human spirit. He then mentioned the late Alice In Chains singer and guitarist Layne Staley, who would have celebrated his 49th birthday yesterday. Both Alice in Chains and Pearl Jam emerged from the Seattle music scene around the same era.Watch the emotional moment from last night’s show, courtesy of Brian Ruschman on YouTube.The full performance setlist can be seen below.Edit this setlist | More Pearl Jam setlistslast_img
