Watch Eddie Vedder’s Heartbreaking Tribute To Layne Staley During Pearl Jam’s US Show

Written by Emmy Mack on August 25, 2016

Eddie Vedder has left the moshpit wet with the tears of fans during Pearl Jam‘s recent show in Chicago on Monday, 22nd of August.

The date was a significant one for Vedder, who took a moment mid-set to pay tribute to his old friend, Layne Staley.

The Alice In Chains legend would have turned 49 on that very day, had he not died of a drug overdose in 2002.

“It’s the birthday of a guy called Layne Staley tonight, and we’re thinking of him tonight too. 49 years old,” Vedder told the crowd, before dedicating the song Man Of The Hour to his departed brother in grunge.

His emotional performance will hit you right in the feels, so maybe keep a Kleenex or two handy.
