Pearl Jam brings out Johnny Marr in London to cover Neil Young Song


Pearl Jam brought out Johnny Marr to join them on a pair of classic rock covers during the band’s Saturday night at London’s Hyde Park.

The Smiths guitarist, who opened for the band Saturday, first came out mid-set for a rendition of Neil Young’s “Throw Your Hatred Down”(from the Young/Pearl Jam collaboration album Mirror BallMarr plays an extended solo on the guitar, despite Eddie Vedder’s intrusion on his space.

Marr later reappeared to assist in Pearl Jam’s concert-closing performance of the Who’s “Baba O’Riley”To keep their Who streak alive: Vedder invited Simon Townshend (brother of the Who guitarist Pete) to Hyde Park to play his “I’m the Answer.”

The Smiths guitarist has been seen on stage with the grunge legends quite a few times over the years, including at a concert in 2006 to cover. “All Along the Watchtower”Join Eddie Vedder Here are a few of my favorite songs at the singer’s Ohana Festival in 2018.

After canceling six dates from their U.S tour due to a Covid breakout in the band’s camp, Pearl Jam are in the midst of a European summer tour that will keep them on the road through July. The band will return to North American in September for an 11-show run before Vedder’s Ohana Fest to Dana Point, California on the Oct. 1 and 8 weekends.
