Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder performed at the all-star Chicago Cubs benefit concert on Friday, June 17, according to Spin.

The fundraising event Hot Stove Cool Music was hosted by Chicago Cubs general manager Theo Epstein, who runs a foundation called Foundation to Be Named Later.

Vedder wasn't expected on the lineup this year, as he headlined last year, but he still made a quick appearance to perform songs like "Better Man," "Watch Outside" and "Corduroy."

The Pearl Jam frontman also covered Neil Young's "Rockin' in the Free World," which featured Epstein, Smashing Pumpkins drummer Jimmy Chamberlin, and former New York Yankee/current jazz guitarist Bernie Williams, according to Rolling Stone.

Vedder is known for being a Cubs fan and even wrote his own fight song for the team, which he also performed at the benefit.
