Pearl Jam Joined On Stage By Sting and Cheap Trick Members


(Radio.com) Pearl Jam played host to some of their biggest musical influences on Monday night at Madison Square Garden where they were joined by former Police frontman Sting and members of Cheap Trick.

Six songs into their set, they were joined by two members of newly-minted Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Cheap Trick: guitarist Rick Nielsen and basssist Tom Petersson. They played a rousing rendition of that band's anthem, "Surrender," and actually threw some LPs into the audience during the line "Got my KISS records out" (we'll assume they were KISS records).

A few hours and twenty songs later, they were joined by Sting for a version of the Police's "Driven To Tears," a song that Pearl Jam has covered in the past (and Eddie Vedder has covered at solo shows). Watch the NSFW video below.

The concert itself was a three hour, thirty-one song extravaganza that leaned heavily on songs from their debut album, 1991's Ten (as well as two other songs from that era, "State of Love and Trust" and "Breath" from the soundtrack of the 1992 film Singles) and featured a number of other covers: the 1961 Wayne Cochran song "Last Kiss," the Dead Boys' "Sonic Reducer" and the Who's "Baba O'Riley," as well as the Beatles' "You've Got To Hide Your Love Away" which frontman Eddie Vedder performed on his own. Although it was the ten year anniversary of the band's self-titled album (known among fans as "The Avocado Album") they didn't play any songs from that album. Check out videos here.
