Better Man to Appear on 25th Anniversary Bridge School DVD

Rolling Stone has a video of Pearl Jam playing an alternative take on Better Man from the upcoming DVD and/or CD release(s), The Bridge School Concerts: 25th Anniversary Edition.

Reprise Records is celebrating the 25th anniversary of the annual Bridge School Benefit Concerts with retrospective DVD and CD sets featuring some of the best performances at the shows from over the years. In this clip from the DVD set, Bridge School mainstays Pearl Jam play a muted, haunting rendition of their hit "Better Man," with Eddie Vedder putting a slightly different spin on his usual melodic phrasing.

The sets, which include acoustic performances by superstars such as Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney, David Bowie, R.E.M., Tom Petty, Metallica, Simon and Garfunkel, Bob Dylan and Neil Young, will hit stores on October 24th. All the proceeds will go the Bridge School charity.
I'll have to leave it to the commentors to help me out with the exact date of the performance.
