Both acts headlined the Nov. 2 event with individual sets before joining forces at the end of the evening. The fundraiser event was held at the non-profit music institute in Los Angeles, Calif.
In 2001, RHCP bassist and founder Michael Balzary (best known as Flea) founded the Silverlake Conservatory of Music alongside longtime friend Keith (Tree) Barry.
The Can’t Stop rocker even enlisted popular American comedian Marc Maron to host the highly attended charity event.
This wasn’t the first time Vedder, 54, joined RHCP onstage.
Over the years, Vedder has been invited to perform at the annual conservatory benefit shows, as he is a longtime friend of Flea and the rest of the band.
Earlier this year, following the tragic passing of the Cars frontman Ric Ocasek, the Chili Peppers invited the Daughter singer onstage at Ohana Fest in Dana Point, Calif., to perform a cover of Just What I Needed — perhaps the Cars’ biggest hit.
Throughout the night, fans were treated to a variety of RHCP hits, including Can’t Stop, Suck My Kiss and By the Way. The group even performed their 1999 Californication cut Purple Stain for the first time since 2004.
Instead of playing songs from his own successful solo career, Vedder dedicated the majority of his set to Pearl Jam fans present in the audience.
As well as a Tom Petty cover (Wildflowers), the Black singer surprised fans with songs like Better Man and Corduroy — which happened to be one of two songs he invited RHCP guitarist Josh Klinghoffer back onstage for.
