    My world just turned to black, as Pearl Jam stunned fans at a Portuguese music festival on Sunday by declaring the concert would be their "last in a long time." The band is going on some sort of extended hiatus and they let everyone know while they were performing at the Optimus Alive festival in Lisbon at the weekend. Vocal (and often cranky) frontman Eddie Vedder left the throng of adoring fans there (and here, when the news travelled) shocked and confused when he announced the band was going on an indefinite hiatus, especially since he elected not to give any further explanation.

    Reading in Portuguese from a piece of paper, Vedder told the audience, "Thank you for coming to our last show. Not our last ever, but our last in a long time."

    Is Vedder fucking with fans? Or is PJ going on a much deserved sabbatical/self-imposed furlough?
