Fans who attended Pearl Jam’s Saturday night set at the Ride Festival were treated to a pair of rare performances.
For the first time in 22 years, Pearl Jam dusted off “Angel”. The track was originally released as the band’s 1993 Christmas single, and had only been performed live four times prior to last night.
Following “Angel”, Pearl Jam gave the first full-band performance of “Society”. Vedder covered the song, written by Jerry Hannan, for the soundtrack to Into the Wild. Last night’s performance came at the request of Carine McCandles, whose brother Chris was the inspiration for Into the Wild.
