"He Worked The Room Of Teenagers To 60-Year-Olds Like A Master Of Ceremonies"

3 Minute Record: July 2nd, 2011

Before calling for song three, shouts and applause rose from the audience as out from the shadows walked Eddie Vedder to the stage! In town for his date at the Fabulous Fox Theatre the same night, Vedder helped Costello belt a raucous version of The Who classic “Substitute.” Not sharing the microphone, but standing close with a handheld, Vedder sang along with the ferocious power he’s known for. After the song, Costello called for Vedder to spin the wheel, his result landing on the classic “Pump It Up.” Off to a great start, the night was already special and only the four song of the set had passed.
