VIDEO: Pearl Jam shave fan’s head after playing request in Spokane

Pearl Jam played a request before frontman Eddie Vedder shaved a fan’s dreadlocks off during their show in Spokane, Washington on Saturday, and video of the event has surfaced.

Jambase reports Vedder noticed a fan sporting a sign that said he'd shave his head if the band would play "Brain Of J", the opening track to their 1998 album, “Yield.”

Eddie brought the man on stage, who told him he wanted to headbang with the dreads one last time and, after a short discussion, Pearl Jam agreed and launched into the tune with the fan headbanging throughout the song.

Vedder then cut off the dreads while the rest of the band vamped on a blues progression.

Pearl Jam are currently playing shows across North America in support of their latest album, “Lightning Bolt.”

The project debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 album chart in October with opening week sales of 166,000 copies.
