On Sunday night, the Irish rock band U2 performed in Seattle at CenturyLink Field, as part of The Joshua Tree tour that recently kicked off this year promoting their album of the same name for its 30th anniversary. With the English ensemble Mumford & Sons already on the bill as support, U2 had a special surprise in store for Seattle fans who made it out. After the band played through the entirety of The Joshua Tree, for the final number of the album U2 invited Seattle’s hometown hero and Pearl Jam front man Eddie Vedder and opening act Mumford & Sons to join them on a dramatic rendition of “Mothers Of The Disappeared.”

To start of their collaborative rendition of the ballad, Eddie Vedder emerged first to join Bono for a heartfelt duet in the beginning of the song. As the song progressed, the members of Mumford & Sons came out to help close out the song and the end of the set. U2 then performed two three-song encores to truly close out their special Seattle show. You can watch the full collaboration between U2, Eddie Vedder, and Mumford & Sons below, courtesy of U2gigs.com.
