WRIGLEYVILLE — If you passed by Wrigley Field Friday evening and thought you heard the music of Pearl Jam floating down from the sky, you weren't dreaming.

The iconic rock band was spotted on the rooftop of Murphy's Bleachers, 3655 N. Sheffield Ave., as they recorded some live footage while people waited for what they hoped was an impromptu performance. 

Pearl Jam is in town to play two concerts at Wrigley Field, a common place to spot longtime Cubs fan and lead singer of the band, Eddie Vedder.

Footage recorded Friday didn't show much music being performed, but excited fans still showed their love for the band as Vedder watched from above.

Both of the Wrigley Field Pearl Jam shows this weekend are sold out. Fans who weren't able to snag a ticket can still visit the Pearl Jam pop-up shop that opened earlier this week.

The Cubs and Wrigley Field are 95 percent owned by an entity controlled by a trust established for the benefit of the family of Joe Ricketts, owner and CEO of DNAinfo.com. Joe Ricketts has no direct involvement in the management of the iconic team.
