Pearl Jam just kicked off their Dark Matter world tour in Vancouver. During their second show on May 6, the band performed “Daughter” and added a verse from The Tragically Hip’s “Bobcaygeon”.

This wasn’t the first time the grunge band paid tribute to the Canadian icons. Back in 2016, when The Hip were playing their final show in Kingston, Pearl Jam honoured Gord in Chicago with their song “Light Years”. Eddie Vedder spoke to the crowd, saying, “There’s something going on up north of the border tonight, and it involves somebody that we can say is a family member. He’s part of the group of touring musicians we’ve met over the years and they were… There’s a guy who’s got a band called Tragically Hip, and lucky for some of us, he did some recording with a guy we recorded with all the time with in Seattle and I got to spend a few days with him and we were all informed of some sad news that he had a really tough form of brain cancer called Glioblastoma, which some of us know a lot about and it’s a tough one if not one the toughest forms and he was very courageous and decided to take his group out on one last tour and tonight’s the last night of the that run. So they’re up there going through the emotions up there. And I just want to send them our energy from our gathering up to there gathering up there and wish the best to Mr. Gord Downie… We love you.”
