VIDEO: Eddie Vedder rocks farewell to Letterman

Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder rocked his farewell performance to David Letterman Monday night as one of the final musical guests on The Late Show.

Backed by Paul Shaffer and the CBS Orchestra, Vedder delivered an intense performance of Pearl Jam’s 1994 track, “Better Man”, as a send-off to the host ahead of his final broadcast on Wednesday, May 20 after more than three decades in late night television.

Vedder broke a guitar string in mid-song on the track, which appeared on the group’s third album, “Vitalogy.”

Pearl Jam are currently on a break from their world tour in support of 2014’s “Lightning Bolt.”

The Seattle group return to the road for a month-long run across South America in November.
