Pearl Jam makes live performance debut of new songs at first concert in 3 years


There was the moon, the ocean, Pearl Jam and 35,000 fans on the beach in Asbury Park, New Jersey.


The elements were aligned Saturday to close out the first night of the 2021 Sea Hear Now festival, a celebration of live music, art and surf culture.

As the headliner, Pearl Jam delivered their famous grunge rock sound, with a distinctive Jersey flavor.


It was a year-long wait. The group was originally scheduled to play the festival in 2020, but that was called off due to the coronavirus outbreak. Fans at Saturday's show had to either show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test.
