Pearl Jam surprised concertgoers Saturday with a rare performance of “Angel,” a 1993 track they haven’t played live in 22 years, at The Ride Festival in Telluride, Colorado.

“Some of you may know that this next song doesn’t get played much and some of you may not,” frontman Eddie Vedder told the crowd, according to Stereogum. “It was written by the guy who was our drummer, Dave Abbruzzese. We wish him well.” (Abbruzzese hasn’t been with the band since the mid-’90s.)

The band celebrated the performance by posting a photo from the festival on social media, followed by a photo of their setlist.
