Pearl Jam - Patriot Center, Fairfax - 4/8/94


In the days following Kurt Cobain's death, Pearl Jam continued to tour and pay tribute to their fellow grunge scene leader.

Via our friends JeffAmentsArmy Facebook page:
"On April 8, 1994, Kurt Cobain was found dead at his home in Seattle. Pearl Jam (supported by Mudhoney) played the Patriot Center in Fairfax, Virginia that night. 
During the show, EV said: "I don't think any of us would be in this room tonight if it weren't for Kurt Cobain."
In an interview in December 1994, EV spoke again about 4/8/1994. He said: "[T]he day that we found out about Kurt...I was just spinning. I was lost and didn't know if we should play, or if we should just go home, or if we should attend the services. I still have some regrets about that, even though in the end it was probably better that we played the last two weeks of the tour. I decided I would play those next two weeks and then I'd never have to play again.""
Thankfully Eddie and the boys did continue their musical quest despite several tragedies throughout their career.  RIP Kurt.
