pearljam1 Pearl Jam Has Officially Gone In Hiding

[lastfm]Pearl Jam [/lastfm]frontman [lastfm]Eddie Vedder [/lastfm]dropped the bomb when he announced band was going on haitus during their last show in Portugal.

Pearl Jam said goodbye, for now, at the final night of their tour on Saturday in Oeiras, Portugal. Take a look at the final set list and details of their farewell performance after the jump…

The band that formed in Seattle in 1990, has been on an exhaustive run ever since. With the exception of drummer Matt Cameron, founding members Eddie Vedder (vocals), Jeff Ament (bass), Stone Gossard (rhythm guitar) and Mike McCready (lead guitar) have been there from the beginning. Matt Cameron is currently the only Pearl Jam band member not scheduled to retreat from the music world–rumored to be returning to his previous band [lastfm]Soundgarden[/lastfm].

Eddie Vedder shocked the crowd when he  announced: “Thank you for coming to our last show. Not our last ever, but our last in a long time.

Vedder followed the crushing announcement of the bands scheduled hiatus with,”Have fun tonight because we don’t know when else we will have fun.” Basically sealing the deal for a tearful lighter filled, double encore farewell. Here’s to hoping Pearl Jam only takes a short break from the scene, after all these years, what will we do without them?
