Pearl Jam have played many, many classic rock covers over the years, but one song they’ve never done as a band is Pink Floyd’s “Comfortably Numb.” (Eddie Vedder has sung it with Roger Waters, but that’s it.) Last night, the band covered “Comfortably Numb” for the first time in Porto Alegre, Brazil, while rain poured down on the crowd. This was the first song of the second set of encores in what would turn out to be a 34-song set; Pearl Jam don’t fuck around. At the same show, they also covered Pink Floyd’s “Interstellar Overdrive” and Neil Young’s “Fuckin’ Up.” Watch a fan-made video of the “Comfortably Numb” cover below.
They nailed those solos, huh?
