With the Chicago Cubs season over, lifelong Cubbies fan Eddie Vedder has been forced to do what every sports fan must do when his/her team’s season abruptly ends – move on with life. For Vedder, that means going back out on the road with Pearl Jam. The band is currently on tour in South America, where they have a couple more shows left in Brazil and Colombia before finishing up the month in Mexico City, Mexico.

At Wednesday night’s show in Porto Alegre, Brazil, the band played through a torrential downpour. With buckets of Brazilian rain pouring down, Pearl Jam busted out a tune they’ve never played live – “Comfortably Numb” by Pink Floyd. Pearl Jam have done versions of Floyd tunes “Mother” and “Another Brick in the Wall” before, while Vedder had performed “Comfortably Numb” live alone once before, when he joined Pink Floyd founder Roger Waters onstage at the benefit for Hurricane Sandy victims in December 2012.
