Eddie Vedder Is Impressed By Taylor Swift Fans: ‘It’s Like Punk Rock Crowds’

Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder praised the audience of the pop singer Taylor Swift, highlighting its resemblance to punk rock crowds.

During a recent interview with Mojo, the rocker reminisced about the day he took one of his daughters to a Taylor Swift concert. He mentioned a few things he specifically loved about the audience. He said:

“The run-up to it, making friendship bracelets with her and the generosity of these young girls and boys, trading these bracelets with different messages on them – lyrics, song titles, just acts of good will on these little bracelets. They had found their tribe; they were all agreeing on something.”

The frontman went on to explain why the pop singer’s audience reminded him of punk rock crowds:

“The craziest thing was it reminded me of punk rock crowds, of being aligned with all of the misfits in our town, back in the day. It was galvanising and powerful…”

Vedder Was Mistaken To Another Celebrity During Swift’s Show

The Vedder family attended Swift’s concert on July 22 in Seattle last year. Multiple photos and video clips shared online showed that the Pearl Jam frontman wore a blazer with a T-shirt underneath that had written, ‘It’s me, hi, I’m the father it’s me,’ referring to Swift’s song ‘Anti-Hero.’

The daughters of the rocker, Olivia and Harper, took a photo with Swift, which was later shared online by their mother. Furthermore, another TikTok video was uploaded showing Vedder at the Swift concert.

The uploader mistakenly identified him as actor Pedro Pascal.  A user shared the video with the caption:

“Pedro Pascal is at the Seattle Eras Tour Night #1.”

Many commenters pointed out that it was actually Vedder, including Olivia Vedder, who confirmed:

“That’s fully my dad.”
