With the soundtrack to Sean Penn’s 2007 film Into the Wild, Vedder entered the pop music lexicon seemingly out of the blue. Nobody quite knows where he come from, although there are rumors that the Seattle musician was in a rock band prior to embarking on his solo career. This year, he even released a DVD called “Water on the Road,” which chronicles his 2008 tour.
In all seriousness, Vedder will bring his uke — as well as acoustic and electric guitars and a 20-year career-spanning setlist — to San Diego’s Copley Symphony Hall on July 5. Swell Season/Frames lead singer Glen Hansard will open, and it’s going to be awesome.
In celebration of the show, we’re giving away a copy of Ukulele Songs on CD. For your chance to win, simply comment below and include your email address in the form (your email won’t be visible to the public). The winner will be selected at random and contacted on July 15.
