Pearl Jam cancels Vienna concert after heat damages Eddie Vedder’s throat

Published

The band told fans on Instagram that lead singer Eddie Vedder’s throat was “damaged” at his last show outside Paris due to heat, dust and smoke from nearby fires.

“To all those who were anticipating a great Pearl Jam show tonight in Vienna, we were too. However, due to the extreme circumstances at the last outdoor site outside of Paris (heat, dust, and smoke from the fires) our singer Ed Vedder’s throat was left damaged,” the statement said. “He has seen doctors and had treatment but as of yet, his vocal cords have not recovered.”

Soaring temperatures and wildfires have spread across Europe this week.

In France, wildfires have burned 25 times more land so far this year compared to the same period last year, government spokesperson Olivier Veran told journalists on Wednesday. And Austria’s neighbor, Germany recorded its hottest day this year with more heat to come.

“This is brutal news and horrible timing…for everyone involved. Those who work so hard to put on the shows as well as those who give their precious time and energies to attend,” the band added. “As a band, we are deeply sorry and have tried to find options to still play. And Ed wants to play. There’s just no throat available at this time.”

They added: “So very, very deeply sorry.”

Tickets will be refunded at point of purchase, according to the statement.

Pearl Jam has three shows remaining on this leg of its tour, one in Prague and two nights in Amsterdam. In September, they will kick off the North American leg of their tour.

CPR on set of ‘Better Call Saul’ saved Bob Odenkirk’s life, star says

Published

on

In July 2021, Odenkirk collapsed on the Albuquerque, New Mexico, set while filming the sixth and final season of the show. He later confirmed that it had been due to a “small heart attack.”

The star, who has been nominated for numerous Golden Globe and Emmy Awards for playing the titular character, has now revealed that he stopped breathing during the frightening episode but was saved thanks to emergency medical care on set.

Though he cannot recall the immediate aftermath of the incident, he now knows it happened at around 5:30 p.m. when the cast and crew were changing shots. At that time Odenkirk, now 59, mounted an exercise bike he used between shoots to watch a Chicago Cubs baseball game on TV, he said.

In an interview with the Radio Times magazine this week, the actor recalled: “I went down on one knee, and then I went all the way down. I guess I said, ‘I don’t feel very good.'”

The star, who plays con-artist-turned-lawyer Jimmy McGill who takes on the pseudonym Saul Goodman, said his co-stars Rhea Seehorn, who plays Kim Wexler, and Patrick Fabian, who plays Howard Hamlin, grabbed his head and hand and “started yelling at me to stay on Earth.”

“I wasn’t breathing,” he continued. “I mean, if nobody had been there, if they didn’t do that CPR, I’d have been dead in a few minutes.”

He had three shots of the defibrillator then emergency surgery to clear the artery he called “the widowmaker.”

“Better Call Saul” is a prequel to the AMC hit “Breaking Bad,” which ran for five seasons between 2008 and 2013. That show introduced Odenkirk as Goodman, an attorney for Walter White, played by Bryan Cranston.

In the final season of the show, actors Cranston and Aaron Paul reprise their “Breaking Bad” roles of White and Jesse Pinkman.

Odenkirk told the Radio Times that the reunion was “the greatest joy ever,” adding: “The first episode I did on ‘Breaking Bad’ was a big scene with those guys in the desert, at 2 a.m., in a sandstorm. So to revisit the relationship now … I can’t say more than that. Because it’s a mindblower, man.”

The series finale is scheduled to air on August 15.
