Eddie Vedder onstage at the Centre for Performing Arts in Vancouver, B.C., in April 2008, the first night of his first solo tour to support his soundtrack for the film "Into the Wild." "There was some kind of mettle that would be tested there," he says of going out on his own. "I felt like I was well-supported by the audience, and there was some merit to this different form of communication and playing songs that otherwise would not get played."
