“You can see that I’m not trying to overcompensate,” Eddie Vedder joked about his ukulele two years ago at the Sportpaleis in Antwerp. “Little instrument, big balls.” The grunge rocker performed without his Pearl Jam buddies and delivered a warm campfire concert – stadium size.
If Nick Cave’s recent therapeutic “Conversations” session in Antwerp wasn’t sufficient to save your soul, the 54-year-old American rocker – who is still grieving the death of his buddy Chris Cornell from Soundgarden – is the next redeemer to go to. The Dutch Red Limo String Quartet will be adding a touch of intimate softness to his grand rock and folk songs.
