On night one of The Joshua Tree 30th anniversary tour, U2 brought out Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder for their Seattle stopover.

During the album-closing song Mothers of the Disappeared, Bono frontman called out, “Where is Eddie Vedder? Spirit of Seattle, spirit of Chicago, spirit of America. Where’s Eddie?” Out walked the Pearl Jam frontman to share a hug with Bono and take a verse for his own.

As well as that, tour openers Mumford & Sons reemerged for the song's Ohhh outro.
