Eddie's Been Out And About In Chicago

Fresh from destroying Chicago at the Vic on Thursday, Eddie was on hand to throw out the first pitch at yesterdays Cubbies game.

Speaking of the Vic, a bootleg is coming soon, and as usual you'll be able to download it here. To tide you over, heres a little tease of Black Diamond:

Ed will also release a solo album this year, Into The Wild, the soundtrack to the new Sean Penn film of the same name.

Ed will also be appearing as himself in a 'fake biopic' about fictional rock star Dewey Cox. Says director Judd Apatow of Ed's part:

"We wrote this really bombastic, over-the-top speech, and Eddie Vedder was hysterical reading it. He nailed it on the first take."

With all that exciting news behind him, Ed casually strolled onstage last night to join Ben Harper during his Lollapalooza set to duet on Masters Of War. Check it out here:

If you are at Lollapalooza, then you might want to keep an eye out for Ed, as he is slated to make a super secret appearance at Kidsapalooza, the kids zone on the festival site. Whether this is today or tomorrow, no-one can confirm.

Thats about all the news we can fit in one post, so stay tuned for more Lolla news as the weekend progresses!

Thanks so much for posting all of this information and the clip. Do the other guys get around as much as Eddie?
