Just seven songs into what was expected to be an epic 40-song set Friday night at Wrigley Field, the threat of high winds and lightning left Pearl Jam fans scrambling for cover.
But, for those that stayed through the nearly three-hour rain delay…they were greeted by none other than “Mr. Cub” himself Ernie Banks.
Oh, and the song that Eddie Vedder (clad in a Jose Cardenal Chicago Cubs jersey) and the troops came out to just before midnight following the suspension of play? None other than his Cubs tribute “All the Way”.
