Last weekend Pearl Jam played Fenway Park in Boston and front man Eddie Vedder took some time to send out his best wishes to Bono. U2 recently had to cut a show short when their front man lost his voice in the middle of the concert.
Vedder said (video below):
“This is one of the hardest working men, not just in regards to his music and their last record, and the amount of touring, and what they give to the people. But what they’ve given to the world, and the Red campaign. He carries the weight of the world, and the stage, and the weight of the people that come, but so much of the planet, he’s done so many incredible, incredible things.
He’s meeting with Angela Merkel two days before the show, he’s working our world economy. I just want to wish him the best, and tell him we’re all thinking about him. From one Irish crowd to one Irish man, we love you B.”
