Invincible: Eddie Vedder’s All-Star Band Is A Force Of Nature On Its Debut U.S. Mini-Tour

Earlier this month, Eddie Vedder and his Earthlings kicked off a U.S. mini-tour that concludes this week with shows in Seattle, L.A. and San Diego. Vedder and all-star band—guitarists Glen Hansard (Swell Season), Josh Klinghoffer (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Pearl Jam) and Andrew Watt (Ozzy Osbourne, Justin Bieber), bassist Chris Chaney (Jane’s Addiction) and drummer Chad Smith (RHCP)—rocked the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark, playing most of Vedder’s new solo album Earthling, a few Pearl Jam songs, plus a handful of covers (Beatles, Tom Petty, George Harrison, Pretenders, La’s). MAGNET photographer Wes Orshoski was there, minding his manners and digging the evolution.
