VIDEO: Eddie Vedder ejects fan during Pearl Jam show at Wrigley Field

Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder ejected a fan during the band’s second show at Wrigley Field in Chicago, IL on August 22 and video of the incident has surfaced.

The group were performing “Lukin” late in the main set when Vedder noticed something going on in the crowd near the stage and he abruptly shut down the song.

“Hey! Hey mister! Hey, hey, get your finger out of that woman’s face motherf…” he said. “Hey mister, all the the fingers are pointing at you. Yep. Come on. Clear out, mister.”

As the alleged offender was escorted out by security, the singer made sure the female fan who may have been harassed was alright.

“Ma’am, you’re OK? Yeah? You’re good? Alright, good,” said Vedder. “That’s a good man, taking care of your woman, and then she was taking care of herself, too, pretty good.”

Vedder then counted the tune back in and, without missing a beat, Pearl Jam performed the final 15 seconds of the 1:02 track from their 1996 album “No Code.”

Ironically, the next song in the show was the 2013 single, “Mind Your Manners.”

The Wrigley Field concert marked the end of Pearl Jam’s summer 2016 dates.

Vedder will next play a solo show in Dana Point, CA on August 27 before appearing at the Global Citizen Festival in New York’s Central Park on September 24.

Pearl Jam’s Jeff Ament, Stone Gossard, Mike McCready and drummer Matt Cameron will team up with Soundgarden’s Chris Cornell for the very first tour by Temple Of The Dog this fall in support of a 25th anniversary reissue of their one-off 1991 album.

Temple Of The Dog wlll perform eight concerts in five cities starting in Philadelphia, PA on November 4.
