Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder appeared at the Who’s “Who Cares About the Next Generation” charity performance in Los Angeles last night, where he played a backyard mini-set that included “Rise,” “Can’t Keep,” and more. Joan Jett also performed.

As Alternative Nation points out, Vedder also took a moment to dedicate “Last Will and Testament” to the recently deceased Prince:

Here’s a song about estate planning. A friend of mine worked with Prince, and she said it’s such a tragedy, and she said adding to that tragedy, you’ve got to get your affairs in order Ed. Because she knows that I don’t, she said it’s a horrific nightmare, so this is truly about estate planning.

The auction and benefit raised $3.2 million, benefitting Teen Cancer America. Watch video footage of Vedder’s performance — he joined the Who on “The Real Me” as well — below.

Hearing Eddie actually talk about teens and cancer? I’m amazed. #teencanceramerica
