During his concert in Los Angeles over the weekend, Vedder told the crowd how damaging the virus, and how scared he felt while battling it.

"I got the COVID right before we were supposed to start practicing, probably five, six weeks ago, and literally saw my life flash in front of my eyes," he said to the crowd. "I wasn't quite sure…because I've done some very good things for my body, and I've also had a lot of fun."

He then joked and alluded to a rockstar lifestyle saying, " I've done some things that could be … some kind of abuse, I mean, nothing really clinical. I won't get into the details. Just use your imagination!"

"It felt pretty serious," he continued. "And to get through that and then be back in a room like this, facing this many people facing this way, and listening to us play music for you is really, truly, it's been a gift and an honour. Thanks for listening. We're so grateful."

This moment came after he brought his 17-year-old daughter, Olivia to the stage to sing their heartwarming song together, "My Father's Daughter".

Olivia co-wrote the song with her father, as well as producer Glen Hansard.
