Armed with his acoustic guitar, Sandler attempted to get the song going with MacDonald on vocals, but the comedian kept missing his cue despite his droll assertion, “I’m the only one who can actually sing.”
Luckily Vedder came to the rescue, taking the mic from MacDonald and breezing through the song with his classic grit-caked growl while the rest of the troupe backed him up on the “Talkin’ bout my generation” refrain. Even guest David Spade assumed lead vocals toward the end, though unfortunately, Vedder did not stick around for a duet of “Even Flow” with Opera Man.
Sandler, Schneider and MacDonald have a handful of live shows left on their short trek, including shows February 11th in Denver (again with Spade), February 12th in Phoenix (with Tim Meadows) and then a two-night stand in Las Vegas, February 13th and 14th. Sandler recently starred in the parody western The Ridiculous Six, his first in a four-film deal with Netflix.
