Eddie Vedder is set to perform two new songs at the Venture Into Cures benefit. Venture Into Cures is a one hour virtual event that will go down on November 18th. Vedder is set to perform "Matter of Time" and a new version of "Say Hi."
The songs were inspired by Epidermolysis Bullosa, a rare genetic connective tissue disorder. Eddie and his wife Jill co-founded the EB Research Partnership, whose mission is to find a cure for the disease.
Other celebs that will be a part of the event include Judd Apatow, Bradley Cooper, Laura Dern, Billie Eilish, Chris Hemsworth, Jimmy Kimmel, David Letterman, Gaten Matarazzo, Luis “King Kong” Ortiz, Adam Sandler and Renée Zellweger, and musical performances by Jon Batiste, Alessia Cara, Andra Day, Glen Hansard, Adam Levine, Keb’ Mo’, Lukas, Micah and Willie Nelson.
Jill Vedder said in a statement, “Ed and I are incredibly grateful to everyone joining us for Venture Into Cures. Every day kids with EB and their families face astonishing challenges — this event will give people a glimpse into their world. EBRP’s mission is to find a cure for EB, and this event will help bring us one step closer to making that mission a reality by adding momentum to the work being done.”
Venture Into Cures will stream globally on the Pearl Jam website and other online outlets.
