During their headline set at the festival, Pearl Jam performed several songs from their latest album, Gigaton, live for the first time.
The group also paid tribute to the late Rolling Stones drummer Charlier Watts on ‘Waiting on a Friend’, who was intertwined on ‘Wishlist’.
The group also covered Bruce Springsteen’s “My City Ruins”. You can watch footage from the gig above.
Klinghofer was let go by the Red Hot Chili Peppers in 2019, with the return of former guitarist Jon Frusciante. Klinghofer said at the time that he had no animosity for the group, calling the decision “too simple”.
Pearl Jam recently shared new digital mixes from their debut album ‘Ten’ and their 1996 LP ‘No Code’.
Last month (August 27), the band, which celebrated the 30th and 25th anniversaries of both records, posted mixes created by producer Josh Evans at Dolby Atmos and Sony 360 Reality Audio for a “state-of-the-art immersive listening experience”.
You can listen to both records through the band’s YouTube channel Here.
