Watch Pearl Jam pay tribute to Foo Fighters’ Taylor Hawkins on night one of their US tour

Metal Hammer

Pearl Jam re-launched their pandemic-postponed US tour on May 3, with a performance at the Viejas Arena in San Diego, California, and frontman Eddie Vedder took the opportunity to pay tribute to late Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins mid-way through the band’s set.

Ahead of playing Quick Escape, one of eight tracks from the quintet’s current album Gigaton in the set-list, Vedder hailed Hawkins, and acknowledged the late drummer’s friendship with Pearl Jam’s own Matt Cameron.

“[Hawkins] emitted something very incredible and very special,” the vocalist told the audience. “We’re all missing him, and so, Matt, I’m sorry again for your loss. But it just gives us another chance to say how much we appreciate you as well.”
