An unruly fan made Eddie Vedder turn Monday's Pearl Jam concert into a show-stopper.

The band was in the middle of performing "Lukin" at Wrigley Field in Chicago when Vedder brought the song to a halt to have a fan tossed.

"Hey! Hey mister! Hey, hey, get your finger out of that woman’s face motherf-” Vedder said. “Hey mister ― all the fingers are pointing at you. Clear out, mister."

Vedder gave the fan a wave as security removed him while the crowd cheered. Vedder then gave a shoutout to the woman and her companion.

"Ma’am, you’re OK? Yeah? You’re good?" Vedder asked the woman. "That’s a good man, taking care of your woman, and then she was taking care of herself too pretty good."

The band then launched back into "Lukin" in what proved to be an eventful show at the home of the Chicago Cubs.

It's been an eventful trip to Chicago for the Seattle-based rockers. NBA Hall of Famer, former Chicago Bulls star and noted Pearl Jam fanatic Dennis Rodman made an appearance on stage during the show. He even picked Vedder up and cradled him in his arms while Vedder was singing the song "Black, Red, Yellow.
