Now THIS is commitment to your fans!

Last Friday (9th June), legendary Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder returned to Ireland to play a much anticipated show in Dublin's 3Arena.

Fans attending on the night shouted loud and proud on social media all weekend about how epic the concert was.

Glen Hansard joined on support - culminating in him showing up on stage toward the end of the night to sing his now customary duet of 'The Auld Triangle'. Absolute scenes!

'The Auld Triangle' was one of a 4-5 song encore that Eddie performed, finishing off a MAMMOTH 33-song set.

The concert started at 8.45pm and didn't conclude until 11.36pm - quite some time after the venues 11pm curfew.

That's a 2 HOUR, 56 MINUTE set! Hon' the lad!

Venues would usually impose a penalty for going over this curfew but it remains to be seen if the sound lads at the 3Arena actually held them to this. Rumours are surfacing online that Eddie was forced to produce the cheque book, but these are just unverified reports online.
