There are definately similarities there, even the band realise that. Thats why they had a bit of fun with Robert Plant when they played together in 2005, PJ played given to fly and that was immediately followed be going to california!

ive been to about 10 of their shows and im not a ten club member. for me, its only worth it if i can get in the pit. floor seating tends to suck because you cant see very well. if im not in the pit, id rather be up in the stands for a better vantage point. but thats just my opinion
It only goes on seniority in the States mostly. I joined in '06 and got pretty good seats in MSG! I find the 10c membership very useful for the European shows as it gives the chance to get tix in a presale, and saves relying on Ticketmaster. Also, you get early entry - so I've been front row quite a few times

I have "Given to Fly" tattooed on my shoulder in Ed's handwriting from the Yield booklet - needless to say I kinda like the song and it beats getting a stickman tattoo

i might have to join then since im not living in ireland i cant wait to see them over here. concerts/festivals here have a totally different atmosphere....and better beer!

yea, stickman tattoo's have been killed. the green disease skull would be a cool one to get. a yield sign too, hahahaha. i got my first tattoo about 6 months ago...i want like 10 more now, haha

There is a meet-up arranged for the Manchester!

See here. There isn't one arranged yet for the London show but no doubt there will be! Tribesman, you should go it alone if you have to! I went to see them in lots of places on my own... sometimes there's no better way!!

Just booked my flights. I'll get on a hostel for Berlin soon enough (any recommendations?).


For a while there, I though Springsteen was replacing Pearl Jam as the band/artist I was madly obsessive over. Since these concerts have been announced it's been nothing but PJ. It's good to be back
