VIDEO: Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder drinks wine from fan’s shoe in Sweden

Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder playfully drank wine from a fan’s shoe during a concert in Stockholm, Sweden on Saturday, and fan-filmed video from the event is available.

Blabbermouth reports a girl near the front of the stage held up a sign during the show at the city’s Friends Arena that read, "Please sign my shoe." Vedder had the fan throw the shoes up on stage to him before he and the band broke into the first song of their encore, “Just Breathe.”

The singer signed one of the shoes following the tune and sent it back into the crowd with a bottle of wine he had just finished.

"Okay, I'm gonna do you one better,” said Vedder. “I trust you." The rocker then proceeded to fill the other Converse shoe with wine from a newly-opened bottle and drank from it before tossing it back to the fan.

The Stockholm show was one stop on Pearl Jam’s European tour in support of their latest album, “Lightning Bolt.”

The month-long trek runs to July 11 at Milton Keynes, UK.

Pearl Jam will return to live action this fall for a US tour that will kick off in Cincinnati, Ohio on October 1.
