This week in Seattle Pearl Jam's frontman Eddie Vedder made a guest appearance on the stage with Sting and Peter Gabriel.
The show was part of the two rock veterans, Sting and Gabriel's 'Rock Scissors Paper' co-headline tour, which saw its final US performance on Thursday (July 21), before finishing up in Canada tonight.
Vedder teamed up with Sting to perform 'Driven To Tears' by The Police, a song that the pair previously collaborated live on during a Pearl Jam concert in New York earlier this year.
The Pearl Jam frontman then helped out Gabriel on 'Red Rain', sharing vocal duties. Watch fan-shot footage of both of the tracks below.

It was also announced this week that Pearl Jam and Chris Cornell of Soundgarden will reform their supergroup, Temple Of The Dog, for what will be their first ever tour.
Temple Of The Dog were formed by Cornell in 1990 and featured Pearl Jam members Jeff Ament, Stone Gossard, Mike McCready and Matt Cameron. The band released their self-titled debut, and only album to date, in April 1991.
Temple Of The Dog reunited live in 2014 at Neil Young's Bridge School Benefit Concert. They were joined by Vedder (who sang backing vocals on several Temple Of The Dog recordings) at the show. It was the band's first live appearance together since September 2011, having previously reunited live in 2003 and 2009 also.
The band have now announced they will reform for a five-date tour to mark the 25th anniversary of their only album, 1991's self-titled effort. They will play gigs in in Philadelphia, New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Seattle. See the full dates below. Tickets go on sale at midday on July 29.
The band play the following dates:
Philadelphia, Tower Theater (November 4)
New York, Madison Square Garden (November 7)
San Francisco, Bill Graham Civic Center (November 11)
Los Angeles, The Forum (November 14)
Seattle, Paramount Theater (November 20)
