Pearl Jam made their first performance of 2020 a good one with the (socially distanced) live debut of "Dance of the Clairvoyants," the lead single off their latest album, Gigaton. Each band member — Eddie Vedder, Stone Gossard, Mike McCready, Matt Cameron and Jeff Ament – played from their respective homes, and the video also features former Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist Josh Klinghoffer (who was supposed to tour with the band), as well as Vedder’s daughters and wife Jill.
The trippy performance was part of All In WA: A Concert for COVID-19 Relief, a benefit to help those in need during these trying times. The fundraiser also featured sets from Brandi Carlile, Dave Matthews, Sleater-Kinney, Sir Mix-A-Lot, Macklemore, Ciara, Death Cab For Cutie's Ben Gibbard, and more.

This isn't the first charitable act Pearl Jam has made since the coronavirus pandemic shocked the world earlier this year. Last month, they announced a partnership with Food Lifeline to ensure 300 Washington food banks stay stocked, and in April Vedder revealed that the band was participating in the All In Challenge to help raise money for COVID-19 relief. The band's prize is a "Birthday Package" that is any diehard fan's dream.
