On Wednesday night, The Strokes performed at T-Mobile Park in Seattle as special guest support for the Red Hot Chili Peppers‘ ongoing Unlimited Love world tour (the second is coming up this Saturday, Aug. 6 at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas).

The nine-song set from the Strokes featured a major highlight in the form of a guest appearance by Pearl Jam front man Eddie Vedder, who turned up onstage in his hometown to sing “Juicebox,” from the Strokes’ 2005 record First Impressions of Earth. Here’s fan video of Vedder and Julian Casablancas sharing vocals on the track:

This wasn’t a one-off, by the way, as Vedder has lent his services to the Strokes on this song a few times — including 2011 at Pearl Jam’s PJ20 festival in Colorado:

And again in 2019 at Ohana Fest:

“Juicebox” is a solid choice for this collaboration, Vedder’s steady vocals taking over the second half of the chorus from Casblancas. Plus, with Pearl Jam off the road for a bit after a masterful (and delayed) North American tour, it made for a bit of perfect timing, too.

The Strokes’ set list:

Hard to Explain
Bad Decisions
Juicebox
Automatic Stop
Reptilia
The Adults Are Talking
New York City Cops
You Only Live Once
Someday

Vedder’s daughter, Olivia, also took in the show and shared some photos/videos to Instagram:
