Pearl Jam kicked off their summer 2018 European tour on Tuesday night at the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam, Netherlands. The rockers dedicated the performance to celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain, kicking off the show with ‘Long Road.’ See the setlist and watch videos of the show below.
With house lights on, the band appear onstage and Eddie reads a message mostly in Dutch also offering his condolences to Bourdain’s family. There’s also videos of the band playing ‘Alive‘ and ‘Given to Fly’ below.
Celebrity chef and food critic Bourdain passed away last week. The 61-year-old’s body was discovered in a hotel room in France where he’d been filming for CNN. The television network has confirmed he took his own life.
In a statement they described him as a unique storyteller who will be very much missed. His profile began to soar when his hugely popular book ‘Kitchen Confidential‘ was made into a TV series. He was also known for shows including A Cook’s Tour – Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations and The Layover.
According to Loudwire, it wasn’t widely known about Bourdain but the man was a punk rocker at heart. He was one of the lucky ones to experience New York City’s punk rock boom in the ‘70s and wrote about his experiences of the scene. You can read more about that here.
