Rock star from 90s talks about his close brush with death when his band had to cancel tour performances.
Eddie Vedder, the frontman of the iconic band Pearl Jam, recently shared a personal and emotional experience with his audience during a concert. He revealed that he had a 'near-death experience' which was the reason for the cancellation of some of their tour dates. The band had previously apologized for the cancellations due to illness, but now Eddie opened up about the severity of the situation.

The band had to cancel shows in Berlin and London, and their statement on Instagram addressed the unfortunate news. They expressed their regret and explained that the concert in London had to be cancelled due to illness in the band. Although they didn't provide further details about the illness, Eddie, who is 59 years old, spoke about it during their concert in Barcelona. In a video shared by a concertgoer, he described it as a 'frightening' chest issue that made it difficult for him to breathe.

"It almost felt like a near-death experience," Eddie said to the crowd, "It was very uncomfortable and frightening. It felt like chest bronchitis and I was worried I wouldn't make it through the night." The frontman also expressed his gratitude for being able to perform and connect with their fans, realizing the preciousness of life.

This isn't the first time Eddie has been open about his health struggles. Pearl Jam, which was formed in 1990, has always been honest and genuine with their fans. Despite the rumors of poor ticket sales being the reason for the cancellations, fans who attended the concerts defended the band and shared their support for Eddie's recovery.

"I was at the Manchester show and Ed's voice was clearly struggling, but they still gave an amazing performance. It was a privilege to be there and I'm grateful they didn't cancel. They are always genuine and care about their fans," said IanHigh1, a lifelong fan of the band.

The tour, which started in May, will continue in Europe with upcoming shows in Madrid and Lisbon before heading back to the US in August. It will then conclude with shows in New Zealand and Australia in November.

Despite the challenges, Pearl Jam remains resilient and determined to keep their fans entertained and connected through their music. The band has always been known for their passion and dedication to their craft, and this experience has only strengthened their bond with their loyal fan base. As Eddie said, "We won't be forgetting tonight anytime soon," as they continue to rock their way through their tour.
