Pearl Jam closed out Eddie Vedder's Ohana Festival with a 19-song setlist that spanned their extensive discography. They also surprised fans by bringing out Brandi Carlile (who performed earlier that day and had PJ's Mike McCready and Matt Cameron join her to cover Soundgarden's "Searching With My Good Eye Closed") to help sing "Better Man." Before welcoming her onstage, Vedder told a story about all the powerful women who graced the festival's stages throughout the weekend. Watch the full performance, including Vedder's banter, above.
Vedder ended up playing all three nights of Ohana. He was always scheduled to perform solo on Saturday (September 25) and also filled in for Kings of Leon Friday (September 24) after the band pulled out so they could say goodbye to their ill mother, Betty Ann Murphy, who ended up passing away the day they were scheduled to take the stage. Vedder dedicated his song "The Long Road" to Murphy, calling her "a wonderful, beautiful, energetic, strong, incredible woman." Watch that performance here and check out PJ's full setlist below.
