Watch Eddie Vedder Take Over for Roger Waters on "Comfortably Numb"

Roger Waters brought his Us + Them tour to Chicago’s United Center over the weekend, where he treated the crowd to a bowlful of Pink Floyd favorites. For the 1979 Wall single “Comfortably Numb,” he brought out hometown-boy-made-good Eddie Vedder to sing a chorus, and damn if Vedder didn’t take over the rest of the song.

Waters’s 61-show tour in support of new album Is This the Life We Really Want heads up to Minnesota next before moving east in August and September, with two New York stops at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.
