Eddie Vedder is living Rog’s dream - at the Taylor Swift concert with his two daughters.
Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder headed to Taylor Swift’s concert with his family recently, and he decided to really lean into the Swiftie* attire.
*Swiftie - A Taylor Swift fan.
Vedder, his wife Jill, and two daughters Olivia and Harper were spotted at Swift’s Seattle concert over the weekend, with a bunch of photos and videos surfacing online of the Pearl Jam frontman having a good time.
Vedder was seen sporting a blazer covered in sequins over a t-shirt that read, “It’s me, hi, I’m the father it’s me,” which is a play on Swift’s lyrics, “it’s me, hi, I’m the problem it’s me,” from her song ‘Anti-Hero.’
He wasn’t just wearing sequins and T-Swizzle merch either, he also had some ‘friendship’ bracelets on his wrist, which are beaded bracelets that Taylor Swift fans often swap with others at her concerts. He’s clearly leaned right into the Swift subculture.
In one video posted to TikTok, Vedder is wishing a fan’s dad a happy 60th birthday.
“Scott, happy birthday. Sixty!” he says as he gestures a thumb-up.
“Good on ya,” he continues, and then points at his sparkly coat. “Get yourself a nice coat with sequins.”
We gotta admit, it’s pretty cool to see Eddie getting amongst it for his daughters.
A handful of iconic rock artists have been backing younger pop artists lately, like when Grohl brought Billie Eilish on stage for a duet of ‘My Hero' last year, or when Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor revealed he 'teared up' listening to a Dua Lipa track.
We also found out last year that Rog is a massive Swifite, after he let it slip on the ‘What you don’t know about…’ podcast, which prompted The Morning Rumble to hold an intervention.
The Big Dog admitted he’d been to two Taylor Swift concerts, “with the excuse that I was taking my daughters,” were his exact words.
“I like her more than my daughters like her, to be honest,” were also his exact words. Hey, no judgement here Rog. Eddie’s on board with ya.
Pearl Jam had a total of 47 songs feature in The 2022 Rock 2000 Countdown, peaking at #7 with ‘Black.’ Previously, ‘Black’ and ‘Daughter’ have taken out the #1 spot in 2019 and 2003 respectively.
