    Pearl Jam European tour now confirmed for 2022, dates on https://pearljam.com/tour

    Think should be able to make some shows now, happy days




  • Relieved! Had tickets for both Hyde Park shows. Was really worried they'd go ahead but we wouldn't be able to make them.

    Do people think the 5 band members sit in a room with a map and go "Nah, fcuk this place. . . next"?

    So so much more to it.

    (And it has been documented in numerous places why Pearl Jam don't play here anymore).

    Money, money, money.




  • Money, money, money.

    Precisely. There is a litany of logistics, promoters, etc that have to be navigated and if they don't won't work, they don't won't.

    It's not a case of Jeff Ament or Stone Gossard going "Pfft, Ireland, yuck!"




  • Gone for London 1, catch Pixies too

    Man, I literally worked with MCD. Acts by in large have absolutely minimal input into the venues and cities they play. A tender-esqe invite is often submitted by management to promotors with the band's flat fee. And base level logistic, cost and expense fees. The promoters then put in for the act with dates and proposals.

    The amount a band charges does not vary with the amount of tickets sold or how much the promoter charges, they also do not set ticket prices. Something so many on this thread don't seem to grasp. The only variable the act has in its price is logistics. (Ireland, as an island are naturally higher).

    You surely aren't naive enough to think Jeff Ament and Stone Gossard are sitting down going "how much do we make? nah not enough".

    Edit: I happen to know that Pearl Jam are about €400k (, well were 5 years ago). In both 2012 and 2014 they said "This is how much we cost, and we are free on these dates" to promoters around Europe and both our major promoters in Ireland passed. It's as simple as that. 2012 became Manchester night 1, 2014 became a second UK date too.

    If we all chip in we could get them to come and play! Few cans in the garden, nice.

    Eddie's last solo show in the 3arena grossed over 1m, that was on his own.
    The previous time he visited he sold out the 3arena and the Marquee in Cork and the average ticket was over 100 euro.
    Thats close to 1.4m euro.

    Its not about money, Pearl Jams appearance fee is pretty modest by modern standards, its closer to a 800k nowadays.

    They tour with a pretty modest stage setup so transport costs wouldnt be very high compared to more elaborate tours.

    Pearl Jam would easily sell out the RDS, 35k tickets at 100 euro average per tickets, thats 3.5m gross, loads of room for profit in that.

  • You can pay for their shows on nugs.net - EDIT audio only, I thought watching was also an option on this site



    I get the odd email about a discount on these, not sure if they're from the general Pearl Jam newsletter or the Ten Club newsletter.

    I remember buying the Cardiff CD at the time (still have it) as it seemed to me to be a really good setlist.

    I was at the gig and bought the CD as soon as it came out. Class.

    Me too. But I think I downloaded the FLACs from Basecamp rather than buying a CD and I subsequently lost them so happy to have this back!

    the stage dive at the end of black was some mixture of emotions for both Eddie and the fans. it was serene.




  • New Eddie Vedder solo song Long Way from his upcoming album Earthling.

    Its very good, sounds a bit like Tom Petty.
