Pearl Jam Perform ‘Love Boat Captain’ in Tribute to Victims of Paris Attack
"Our love goes out to all in Paris," Eddie Vedder said introducing the song in São Paulo
During Pearl Jam’s performance in São Paulo, Brazil on Saturday, Eddie Vedder took some time to pay tribute to those lost in the attacks in Paris the night before. Introducing “Love Boat Captain,” their song that references the 2000 tragedy at Roskilde, Vedder addressed the crowd in Portuguese, saying, in rough translation, “Our love goes out to all in Paris.”
During the performance, he modified he song’s lyrics in an obvious dedication to those who were killed in the attacks. The original lyric “Lost 9 friends we’ll never know / Two years ago today” became what sounds like “Lost 90 friends we’ll never know / Oh, again today.” Watch video of the speech and performance here.
