The Pearl Jam frontman will play the third of three intimate shows at São Paulo’s Citibank Hall tonight (March 30). He previously performed at the venue on Wednesday and Thursday (March 28, 29).

As well as including songs by his iconic grunge band, like ‘Dead Man’ and ‘Around The Bend’, and his own solo material, in the setlists, the performances were also peppered with covers. Artists tackled by Vedder included Fugazi, Cat Stevens, Cat Power, Tom Waits, Tom Petty, The Velvet Underground, Nine Inch Nails, and more.

On Wednesday night, he included a rendition of ‘Bad’ by U2, which he first performed last summer. You can watch footage of the song, which originally featured on the Irish band’s 1984 album ‘The Unforgettable Fire‘, above

He also covered John Lennon’s ‘Imagine’ on the same night, during which the audience used their phone torches to light up the venue. On Thursday, he also performed a version of The Beatles’ ‘You’ve Got To Hide Your Love Away’.
