Artists including Eddie Vedder, Foo Fighters, Jennifer Lopez, J Balvin, and H.E.R. performed at Global Citizen’s VAX Live: The Concert to Reunite the World. The concert itself took place last weekend at the SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California to an audience of over 20,000 vaccinated frontline healthcare and essential workers and was broadcast as an extended 90-minute YouTube stream yesterday (May 8).
Foo Fighters’ set included ‘All My Life’, ‘Everlong’, ‘Times Like These’, ‘My Hero’, ‘Best of You’, as well as a cover of AC/DC’s ‘Back In Black’, for which they were joined by AC/DC’s Brian Johnson. Meanwhile, Vedder played Pearl Jam’s ‘Corduroy’ and a rendition of Little Steven’s ‘I Am a Patriot’ with former Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist Josh Klinghoffer and Nick and Sam Wilkerson of White Reaper as part of his backing band.
