Pearl Jam gave their inaugural live performance of ‘Dance of the Clairvoyants’ to All In WA: A Concert for COVID-19 Relief last night. This marks the first time a track from the band’s widely-acclaimed new album Gigaton, has been performed.

The respective band members played out of their respective homes, locking into an unbreakable groove despite the distance. Reflecting ‘Dance Of The Clairvoyants’ spirit of experimentation, guitarist Stone Gossard picked up the bass, while bassist Jeff Ament got behind the keys and donned a guitar. Matt Cameron held down the beat as Mike McCready wailed through the riffs under a blacklight. Meanwhile, vocalist Eddie Vedder sang waving a lighter as his daughters and wife Jill Vedder made a cameo in the background.
As part of All In WA: A Concert for COVID-19 Relief, Pearl Jam joined a bill, including Macklemore, Brandi Carlile, Ciara, Ben Gibbard, The Black Tones, Dave Matthews, Sir Mix-A-Lot, Mary Lambert, Allen Stone, and actor Joel McHale as well as Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll, quarterback Russell Wilson, and more.
