Pearl Jam Joined Onstage By Original Drummer Dave Krusen At Fresno, CA Show


Multi-platinum grunge icons Pearl Jam have certainly been forced to persevere in the face of adversity amid their current touring. With their drummer Matt Cameron having taken ill last week with COVID-19, the group have enlisted a rotating cast of guests to fill-in behind the kit. Among those to sit-in with the band are Pearl Jam touring musician Josh Klinghoffer, Richard Stuverud and even an 18-year-old fan by the name of Kai Neukermans.

However, fans who attended the band’s show last night (May 16th) at the Save Mart Center in Fresno, CA were treated to an unexpected reunion. The group’s original drummer Dave Krusen joined them onstage for a set heavy on tracks from their 13x multi-platinum debut album “Ten“.

Krusen sat in on the tracks “Once“, “Even Flow“, “Garden“, “Black“, “Porch“, “Jeremy“, “Deep“, “State Of Love And Trust” and “Alive“. Fan-filmed footage from the set can be seen below. Pearl Jam have the following shows booked:
