Eddie Vedder

Eddie Vedder dedicated Pearl Jam’s European tour opener in Amsterdam last night to the late Anthony Bourdain, as well as David and Andy Spade–brother-in-law and husband, respectively, of designer Kate Spade. Both Spade and Bourdain passed away last week. Before launching into a rendition of “Long Road,” Vedder spoke in Dutch, and then said in English: “We dedicate this to Anthony, my friend David, his brother Andrew. They are deep in our hearts tonight and we thank you.” U2 recently paid tribute to Bourdain at a concert at New York City’s Apollo Theater.
