Watch Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder Cover The Beatles’ ‘Help!’ In Prague

Eddie Vedder took a moment during a recent Pearl Jam show in Prague to treat the crowd to an impromptu solo set, which included a cover of the Beatles’ “Help!”.

Pearl Jam was performing at the O2 Arena in Prague this weekend when Vedder decided to bust out the acoustic guitar and deliver a stripped down, gravely rendition of the Fab Four’s 1965 number one smash.

In the video, which can be seen above, the crowd can be heard providing back-up vocals for the 53-year-old singer as he belts his way through the tune. He then smoothly transitions into “Help Help,” a track from the 2002 Pearl Jam album Riot Act.

This isn’t the first time Vedder has covered the Beatles, he previously recorded a version of “You’ve Got to Hide Your Love Away” – which also featured on the “Help!” soundtrack – for the 2001 film “I Am Sam,” directed by Jessie Nelson.

Pearl Jam is currently on the European leg of their 2018 tour which is scheduled to wrap up in London on July 17 – the band previously had to cancel a London show due to Vedder losing his voice.

The grunge rockers will then move onto North America with concerts in Seattle, Missoula, Chicago, and Boston.
