Pearl Jam Members Join Conan O’Brien On Stage In Seattle
[lastfm]Pearl Jam[/lastfm]’s [lastfm]Eddie Vedder[/lastfm] and Mike McCready made a surprise appearance at [lastfm]Conan O’Brien[/lastfm]’s show in Seattle earlier this week. The former Tonight Show host was in town for his Legally Prohibited From Being Funny On Television tour.
Eddie Vedder came on stage and performed a three-song set that featured his solo hit, “Rise Up,” then a modified version of [lastfm]John Lennon[/lastfm]’s “Oh Yoko,” which Vedder transformed into “Oh Coco,” in honor of O’Brien, who happened to be celebrating his 47th birthday.
Finally, Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready joined Vedder on stage to perform a cover of [lastfm]the Who[/lastfm]’s “Baba O’Riley.”
“Eddie Vedder’s set at my show in Seattle last night melted my eyeballs,” O’Brien wrote on his Twitter page the following day. “Seriously, I’m going to sue Eddie for boiling my ocular-jelly.”
Pearl Jam was the very first musical guest last June on NBC’s short-lived Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien.
