Friday night’s Pearl Jam show at Boston’s Fenway Park was highlighted by the band playing Aerosmith’s 1977 single “Draw the Line,” in dedication to Joe Perry. The Fenway Park gig marked the band’s first time performing the tune.
“That was for Joe Perry. We’re thinking about you,” Eddie Vedder said to the crowd.
Perry recently rejoined the Hollywood Vampires tour he was on, after collapsing on stage and being hospitalized in Brooklyn in July.
Pearl Jam sprinkled other notable covers into its 32-song set list Friday night: Bob Dylan’s “Masters of War,” Pink Floyd’s “Comfortably Numb,” the Beatles’ “I Got a Feeling,” the Who’s “Baba O’Riley” and Steven Van Zandt’s “I Am a Patriot,” Rolling Stone reports.
The group performs a second concert at Fenway Park Sunday night (Aug. 7), then continues its tour in Chicago on Aug. 20 and 22.
