During the recent interview, Pearl Jam singer Eddie Vedder expressed his feelings about opening for Beyonce and Jay-Z. He said that ‘a dream come true’.

Here’s the statement:

“We’re going to sing a bit of a prayer for you. It’s an honor to be here, and for someone who has never played in your country before, it’s a dream come true. It’s also a dream come true to open for Beyonce and Jay-Z.

Something we don’t always think about, and I’ve been thinking about it a lot. I just want to mention our gratitude for the family members of Nelson Mandela.

For him to be the father of this country, they had to sacrifice their own father, their own grandfather, their husband, because they shared him with the world, he was able to change the world. We appreciate them for sharing him with us.”

Yesterday, Eddie Vedder performed at the Global Citizens Festival: Mandela 100 in Africa.

Back in 2015, Eddie Vedder and Beyonce has performed Bob Marley’s song ‘Redemption Song’ at Global Citizen Festival. You can watch that performance below.
