Watch Eddie Vedder & The Earthlings cover The Cure's 'Just Like Heaven' in Las Vegas

Eddie Vedder& The Earthlings closed out a brief run of dates w last night (October 7) at Dolby Live at Park MGM in Las Vegas. The set featured songs from Vedder’s third solo album Earthling but it was a first time cover during the encore that highlighted the set  

 

Beforehand playing the Cure’s “Just Like Heaven” - Vedder told the crowd that the song was on the playlist for the COVID-era dance parties he held with his wife Jill in their garage - yes - they invested in disco lights and smoke machines. “I will always have great memories of those incredible dance parties ... The kids would come in and check on us and kind of get embarrassed and have to leave, but we had a fuckin’ blast. This is one of the ones that we would play. We’ve never played it before — we only played it about an hour ago right before we came out, but we’re gonna try it now.”
