O2 gig cancelled as Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder loses his voice
PEARL JAM’S Eddie Vedder hopes to get Better Man after he bailed out of their London gig last night, hours before it was due to start.
The grunge rockers played the O2 Arena on Monday, but yesterday Eddie, 53, was ordered to go on ‘vocal rest’ after losing his voice.
Pearl Jam, who told fans they are ‘gutted’, are attempting to reschedule the show for mid-July, with tickets transferred to the new date. The band posted on Twitter: ‘Pearl Jam are very sorry to announce that they will be unable to perform tonight’s show at the O2 Arena.
‘[Eddie] is on vocal rest for the next few days in an effort to heal and perform the remainder of the tour dates. Ed and the band are gutted thinking of all the folks who have travelled and made plans.
‘Sending their biggest apologies out to everyone.’
