Pearl Jam paid tribute to late Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell Friday night (Aug. 10) during the rock band's second Home Show concert at Seattle’s Safeco Field.
During their set, Pearl Jam covered Cornell's little-known song "Missing," from his rare 1992 Poncier EP, which features music from the classic Singles soundtrack. Watch below.
For the encore, Soundgarden guitarist Kim Thayil, who wore a Cornell shirt, joined Pearl Jam for covers MC5’s “Kick Out the Jams,” the Stooges’ “Search and Destroy” and Dead Boys’ “Sonic Reducer.” The latter two also featured Mudhoney’s Mark Arm and Steve Turner, Rolling Stone reports.
Pearl Jam's first Home Show was held Wednesday at Safeco Field. The concert, the group's first hometown performance in five years, reportedly raised more than $1 million to assist with Seattle's homeless problem.
Next up, Pearl Jam will play a stint Away Shows at stadiums in Missoula, Montana; Chicago; and Boston.
