Seattle 2 - Key Arena ? 25th April 2005

27 Apr 2005
After the success of first night in Seattle U2 hosted a fantastic party. All of the band were there, along with Bill Gates The Killers and Eddie Vedder and Stone Gossard from Pearl Jam.

Before the end of the night The Kings of Leon also showed up and obviously they and Pearl Jam hit it off.

A wonderful night was had by all and it led on to a great musical moment for fans at the second show.

As The Kings of Leon were playing through their set, Eddie Vedder joined the young rockers from Tennessee on stage during their final track Slow Night, So Long to a huge cheer from the local audience.

A long time fan of the band - Eddie turned up to sound check for the second show with tambourines at the ready.
Slow night is reportedly Vedder's favourite song by the Kings. He perhaps smashed 3 or 4 Tambourines - tossing them out into the audience - all the while getting down with the Kings and looked to be loving every minute of it.

Tonight the band came onto the stage with the opening chimes of City of Blinding of Lights and played a blinder through Beautiful Day, Vertigo and Elevation.

The audience were completely involved from start to finish and gave as much as the band.
