Post Malone shared the stage with Pearl Jam founding member, Eddie Vedder, during the 2024 Reportin’ For Duty benefit concert for a stellar rendition of Pearl Jam's ‘Better Man’.

Eddie Vedder kicked off the iconic track, which originally appeared on the band's 1994 rock classic, Vitalogy, before Post Malone took the lead for the much-loved hook.

The performance had the feel of an intimate writer's round, with the artists trading lyrics while sat atop two stools, accompanied by nothing more than their acoustic guitars.

As the song progressed, Eddie and Posty joined forces to energetically sing the hook together, with the help of the packed-out Shelbyville, Tennessee audience, with attendees responding to them upping the ante by singing the lyrics back to them.

The annual concert, which was first put on in February 2023 in honour of the late great Leslie Jordan, is designed to raise funds for the EB Research Partnership, which carries out life-changing work to help treat and cure Epidermolysis Bullosa. The debilitating inherited disease affects children and is known as the ‘Butterfly’ disease, due to the fact that it can make the skin as delicate as a butterfly's wing.

Eddie Vedder teamed up with Leslie Jordan in 2021 to auction off collectible items for the EB Research Partnership, with Eddie Vedder founding EBRP alongside his wife, Jill, in 2010, while Leslie Jordan also raised money for the cause throughout his illustrious career.

Elsewhere during Post Malone's headlining set, the bearded crooner - who teased his first ever country song with Luke Combs, ‘I Ain't Got A Guy For That’, last week - performed stripped-back versions of fan-favourites such as ‘Circles’ and ‘Overdrive’. In addition, the bearded crooner joined Eddie Vedder once again for an enchanting cover of Tom Petty's celebrated 1989 anthem, ‘I Won't Back Down’.
