Pearl Jam front man Eddie Vedder has been doing a limited solo tour. The intimate evenings are just him and his acoustic guitar along with some story telling. He also brings on occasional guests and tries new cover songs – something his band Pearl Jam do quite often on tour.
Eddie was headlining the Innings Festival in Arizona on March 3rd when he decided to try his hand at a song from the movie “A Star is Born”. Eddie had given advice to actor Bradley Cooper prior to the filming of the movie so he has a connection with the music. “I went up to Seattle and spent four or five days with him and I asked him 9,000 questions,” Cooper said. “And he gave me minor, little things that only musicians know about what to do, just aesthetically and the inner workings.”
Eddie performed “Maybe It’s Time” much to the crowd’s surprise. The song was written by the award winning Jason Isbell and it suits Eddie perfectly. Watch the footage from the show and check out the remaining Eddie Vedder solo tour dates here.
The original tune from “A Star is Born” has over 30 million views on YouTube – compare with Eddie’s performance:
