See Pearl Jam Cover Aerosmith’s ‘Draw the Line’ at Fenway Park
Band also dusts off Bob Dylan’s “Masters of War” at first of three concerts at Red Sox stadium
Pearl Jam kicked off a three-night stand at Boston’s Fenway Park Friday night with a 32-song concert that featured the band performing, for the first time, “Draw the Line” by hometown heroes Aerosmith.
“Boston’s always been good to us, from the Orpheum back in the day to all the Garden shows, this is just one more level, so we can’t thank you enough,” said Vedder in his well-worn “21” shirt, a nod to the Pittsburgh Pirates legend Roberto Clemente and not Red Sox pitching great Roger Clemens. During the performance of “Black,” Pearl Jam were joined onstage by former Red Sox pitcher Bronson Arroyo.
Pearl Jam will also play the home of the Red Sox Saturday and Sunday night.
