Singers stage surprise collaboration at Pearl Jam frontman’s Dana Point, California fest
Stevie Nicks headlined the Friday night festivities at Eddie Vedder’s Ohana Festival, where she enlisted the Pearl Jam singer for a rendition of “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around.”
Before launching into the Tom Petty-penned classic, Nicks talked about how the Heartbreakers frontman offered her the Bella Donna song, which soon became the biggest single of her solo career.
Nicks and her band then broke into their rendition before midway through the first verse, and with no introduction, Vedder sauntered onstage to handle Petty’s vocals on the duet. The pair also danced together during the track’s solo.
In addition to the surprise “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around” duet and her dozens of Fleetwood Mac and solo hits, Nicks also delivered the live rendition of her recent reinterpretation of Buffalo Springfield’s “For What It’s Worth.”
Vedder also kicked off the festival by guesting during the Alive’s festival-opening set Friday, with the singer standing in for performance of Pearl Jam’s “Mind Your Manners”:
Ohana Festival in Dana Point, California continues this weekend with sets from the Pearl Jam singer himself, Jack White, Pink, Billy Strings, St. Vincent and more.
