Earlier this year, Ament - who referenced "Russian money, golf courses and hookers" in his description of the poster - admitted he was keen to use the Montana concert to boost the Democrat campaign.
For donations between $200 and $500, supporters got tickets to the show as well as a chance to attend a reception the night before with Tester and Jeff Ament, the band's bassist and a longtime friend of the senator.
Pearl Jam have found themselves in a bit of hot water for their latest move - a gig poster depicting the rotting corpse of Donald Trump being eaten by a bald eagle in front of a burning White House.
The president has not yet commented on the Pearl Jam poster, which was created to promote a Rock2Vote concert aimed at encouraging young people to vote against the Republicans in the November midterm elections.
It is speculated in an article from the Washington Examiner that the graphic depiction could have a negative effect on Montana's democratic candidate Tester. Check out the poster below.
