Fans at Wrigley Field are no strangers to seeing Eddie Vedder around the home of the Chicago Cubs, but a select few were greeted to a special treat over the weekend when the Pearl Jam singer apparently joined a pair of street musicians for a surprise set.
The unsuspecting drummer and guitarist were playing outside the stadium Saturday on Waveland Avenue when Vedder borrowed a guitar and began to play Pearl Jam’s “Corduroy” alongside the drummer, according to ChiCitySports.
The surprising performance was captured on video by some fans who caught on, but many at the field appeared in the footage to walk by, unaware the man with the guitar was Vedder.

Video of the performance ultimately went viral, with Pearl Jam even retweeting one of them.
One clip even showed Vedder returning the next day for one more greeting, even offering up some pointers.
The Cubs completed a sweep over the St. Louis Cardinals Sunday.
