Pearl Jam Dedicates "Love Boat Captain" to Paris
During Pearl Jam's performance in São Paulo, Brazil on Saturday, Eddie Vedder dedicated the band's performance of "Love Boat Captain" to the victims of Friday's terrorist attacks in Paris, France.
"Love Boat Captain" was originally written about the tragedy that occurred during the 2000 Roskilde Festival, where nine people died after being crushed in a mosh pit. During the performance in Brazil, Vedder changed the lyric "Lost nine friends we'll never know two years ago today" to what sounds like "Lost 90 friends we'll never know again today" in recognition of the victims in Paris.
Pearl Jam's South American tour continues Tuesday in Brasilia, Brazil. The trek will then make its way up to North America for a stop in Mexico City, Mexico on November 28.
