U2 brought out an old friend during the second stop of their sold-out tour celebrating 30 years of “The Joshua Tree”.
Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder joined the Irish rockers on stage along with the band’s opening act, Mumford & Sons, to help them close out the last track on “The Joshua Tree”.
“Where is Eddie Vedder? The spirit of Seattle, the spirit of Chicago, the spirit of America,” Bono announces before Vedder joins him on stage as the two embrace, slow dancing before Bono brings the singer up to the front of the stage, handing over the microphone for Vedder to sing a few lines from “Mothers Of The Disappeared”.
As Bono sings back-up, he welcomes Mumford & Sons back to the stage, who join in with an accordion and guitar for the album’s final track.
A fan captured the moment Vedder and Mumford & Sons joined Bono, The Edge, Larry Mullen Jr. and Adam Clayton on stage, in the video above.
The band’s latest tour sees U2 celebrating the 30th anniversary of their seminal album “The Joshua Tree”, each night playing the entire album in its entirety before breaking into other hits from their career that spans four decades.
Seattle is the band’s second tour stop after kicking things off on May 12 in Vancouver. The band’s only remaining Canadian date is in Toronto on June 23.
