Candlebox hit Phoenix last week (October 22) and welcomed a very special guest on stage as 13-year-old TikTok star Vedder Gabriel took the stage to perform âFar Behindâ with the band.
It was the culmination of a really big day for the young musician, who first got the chance to hang out with the band before the show and get some advice from frontman Kevin Martin as they rehearsed. . In addition to “Far Behind”, Gabriel also worked on a cover of “Sweet Child O ‘Mine” by Guns N’ Roses with Candlebox, as can be seen below.
The collaboration was initiated via Instagram and then led to Martin joining Gabriel for a TikTok duo of “Far Behind”.
âThanks Vedder Gabriel for rocking this one with us,â Martin said. Watch the footage from the day courtesy of Candlebox and Vedder Gabriel below.
Gabriel has turned a few rockers’ heads along the way, having already had a moment to sing along with Dirty Honey also during their tour stop in the Phoenix area.
