Ben Birdwell Joins Pearl Jam
On Friday night, Pearl Jam wrapped up its two night stand at Madison Square Garden. Band of Horses opened as they have for much of the current Pearl Jam (with the exception of the Thursday night MSG show were the Black Keys took the honors). This was the final night of the twelve date and to mark the occasion, Pearl Jam brought out Band of Horses front man Ben Birdwell for the encore. Birdwell guested on vocals during “Hunger Strike.”
Pearl Jam will begin a European tour next month while Band of Horses, which is now making the rounds in support of its new studio record Infinite Arms, will open a brief West Coast run in Davis, CA on Wednesday.
