Eddie Vedder dedicates emotional setlist to Chris Cornell

Music 29/05/2017

Over the weekend, Eddie Vedder played his first solo gig following the death of Chris Cornell.

The pair are known for being pretty good mates, having worked together on some Temple Of The Dog tracks like 'Hunger Strike'.

During the gig, a fan screamed "I love you!", and Vedder replied: "Thank you. I need it - we all need it." 

While he didn't mention Cornell by name, his speech was clearly aimed towards his late friend and the recent terror attacks.

I’m thinking of a lot of people tonight. And some in particular and their families. And I just know that healing takes time, if it ever happens. It takes time, and that means you have to start somewhere. So let it be music. Let it be love and togetherness.
