Pearl Jam kicked off a short new U.S. tour on Aug. 8 with a return to their hometown of Seattle for the first time in five years. They delivered a 33-song show at Safeco Field, including a debut cover of the White Stripes’ “We’re Going to Be Friends” and a version of Brandi Carlile’s “Again Today” that featured a guest appearance by Carlile.

The first of two home shows – the second takes place on Friday – was the centerpiece of an anti-homelessness drive that has so far raised $11.5 million, including a donation of $1 million from the band.

“We’re just talking about what songs we’re gonna play,” Vedder said before the White Stripes cover. “I feel like a waiter with too many tables – I want to make sure everyone’s happy.” He then dedicated the song to “my friend Jack,” presumably meaning Jack White.

The sold-out tour runs until Sep. 4; Vedder will later play two solo shows, one each in September and December.
