On Saturday night, The Who hit the stage at Wembley Stadium for their Moving On! tour with one big surprise.
During the London performance, The Who vocalist Roger Daltrey shocked everyone when he introduced Pearl Jam frontman, Eddie Vedder.
“He’s going to share this song with me because he knows where it came from,” Daltrey said as he turned towards Vedder. “What one were you? You were also the one with the stutter?”
“No,” answered Vedder. “I’m still the punk.”
They then broke into “The Punk And The Godfather” off of Quadrophenia.
Vedder’s history with Quadrophenia goes way back having previously said that the album “saved my life”.
“It was something I could catch, because for some reason it seemed like I could not relate to anyone in the world. With no one in my school and certainly with no one in my house, and all of a sudden, this London guy named Pete came in who knew everything that was going on in my life,” reports Rolling Stone.
The night was also important as they played their single “Hero Ground Zero” off their upcoming studio album by the same name, the first album since 2006.
In addition, Vedder was the opening act at Wembley playing Pearl Jam classics like “Better Man” and “Black”.
