'Rockin' In The Free World'

Bono, Edge and Larry were all at the Pearl Jam show in Toronto last night.

Eddie Veder had been on stage with U2 in the same arena just a couple of nights back and tonight thanked U2 for opening up for them - and breaking in the building!

Introducing Hide Your Love Away, Vedder was full of praise for U2 and thanked them 'for all the drink they've bought us over the years'. He spoke of U2 as a great band who had lasted the distance and been an inspiration - the Pearl Jammers loved it.

Later, Veder remarked that 'the best song ever written about addiction is called Bad' - and Pearl Jam slipped a section of it into their own song 'Daughter'. And, just when you thought maybe it wasn't going to happen, during the band's second encore Bono came up on stage with tambourine in hand and helped them cover Neil Young's 'Rockin' in the Free World'.
