Vedder Joins Springsteen For AC/DC Cover

Bruce Springsteen
AC/DC must just be floating out there in the air this week: Pearl Jam vocalist Eddie Vedder joined Bruce Springsteen on stage in Melbourne, Australia to perform a cover of the Anglo-Australian icons’ “Highway To Hell” as the first song of Springsteen’s marathon nearly-four-hour set.

Vedder hung around to perform Springsteen’s “Darkness on The Edge Of Town” as well, and later in the night Springsteen performed his 1985 classic Born In The U.S.A. album in its entirety, the first time he’s ever played a complete album in Oz.
Melbourne has a special connection for AC/DC fans, as explored back in 2011, when we toured the city’s AC/DC landmarks, including the Esplenade Hotel where Dave Evans played his last show with the band before he was replaced by Bon Scott; Swanston Street where the “Long Way To The Top” video was filmed in 1976; and AC/DC Lane, home to noted Melbourne rock club Cherry Bar.

Joining the 18-piece E Street Band on this tour is Rage Against The Machine/Audioslave guitarist Tom Morello, forming a triple-guitar attack with Little Stevie Van Zandt and Nils Lofgren.
