Pearl Jam Take On Van Halen Classics

(hennemusic) Pearl Jam performed a pair of Van Halen classics during their concert at Hartford, Connecticut's XL Center on Friday, and video from the show has surfaced.

On the road in support of their new No. 1 album, "Lightning Bolt", the Seattle band's return to Hartford brought a dιjΰ vu vibe to frontman Eddie Vedder.

"The last time we played here, in 2010, we played a song and we said it was the only time we would ever play this song," Vedder told the crowd. "And it was the only time we ever played this song. But as soon as we walked into the back room tonight…I was like, 'This is where we played that song! And, for some reason, I just really need to play that song again!' But before we play that song, he's (points to lead guitarist Mike McCready) going to play this song."

McCready launched into Eddie Van Halen's classic solo, "Eruption", before Pearl Jam went into "Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love", both tracks featured on Van Halen's 1978 self-titled debut album. Check out the video here.
