While Pearl Jam was not among the many musicians and other entertainers who issued formal statements or comments on the death of pioneering rock legend Lou Reed, the band did pay tribute to the former Velvet Underground frontman in the best way possible: by playing his music. Jambase reported that at Pearl Jam’s concert in Baltimore on Sunday night (October 27th), the group first played a snippet of Reed’s signature hit, “Walk On The Wild Side” at the end of their own “Daughter,” and later unveiled a full-blown cover of the Velvet Underground classic “I’m Waiting For The Man” during their lengthy encore.

Reed died on Sunday at the age of 71 due to complications from a liver transplant he received earlier this year.

Meanwhile, Van Halen also paid tribute to another rock legend over the weekend, although thankfully under better circumstances.

According to HenneMusic, Pearl Jam played two Van Halen cuts during its show in Hartford, Connecticut on Friday night (October 25th). The last time the band played the same venue, it aired out Van Halen’s “Ain’t Talkin’ ‘Bout Love,” which led to a repeat performance on Friday.
