Watch Pearl Jam With Soundgarden And Mudhoney At Seattle Stadium Gig!


Pearl Jam, Soundgarden and Mudhoney all rocked Seattle last week. Pearl Jam also paid a special tribute to Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell on Friday night at Safeco Field Stadium. The band’s second ‘Home Shows’ concert in aid of the city’s homeless also served as a star-studded celebration of the local grunge scene. Footage of the event is available below…

During the show, Pearl Jam played a debut rendition of the relatively unknown Cornell track “Missing.” That song is from the departed singer’s rare 1992 Poncier EP that comprises of his work from the Singles soundtrack. When Temple of the Dog reunited briefly back in 2016, “Missing” became an addition to their live set.

Pearl Jam, with Soundgarden’s drummer Matt Cameron already a member, invited guitarist Kim Thayil in a Cornell shirt to join them for a trio of covers in the encore. The sogs were, the Stooges’ “Search and Destroy”,  MC5’s “Kick Out the Jams,” and Dead Boys’ “Sonic Reducer.” Mudhoney’s Mark Arm and Steve Turner also came up to perform during the encore.

Pearl Jam’s also included a rendition of Mother Love Bone’s “Crown of Thorns,” in their live set, their grunge tribute coinciding on the same weekend that Sub Pop Records celebrated its 30th birthday. Seattle mayor Jenny Durkan also proclaimed August 11th to be Sub Pop Day!

Meanwhile, the band are well their way to raising more than 12 million dollars to tackle the city’s chronic homelessness. ‘The Home Shows’, heralded the band’s first Seattle dates in five years. The stadium gigs at Safeco field were the main event of a week’s worth of promotions designed to raise money for the city and county.
