    Not sure for their Chicago show but the London show, maybe a q & a. When I heard "An Evening with Pearl Jam", I said right away .. "An Evening with Kevin Smith" like. Cause I loved those shows.

    But I doubt THAT would happen.

    I read something about an early curfew(10:30), so it may just be a pretty standard PJ set.

    For the Chicago/Wrigley show you have to realize Wrigley is in the center of a residential area so there is an early curfew.

    Question...you can only enter once for each particular show? For example I can't submit 5x for Chicago correct?

    It depends. I'm not sure if its me or not, but I've always thought (for the most part) that Pearl Jam (like atheletes) build up more stamina as a tour progresses. Quite often the the setlists at the end of a tour are longer and more interesting than the beginning of the tour (then you get exceptions like gorge 05).

    So maybe? Try not to get your hopes up? I remember the Gorge '06 shows, everyone was expecting acoustic opening sets because they billed at as "An Evening With Pearl Jam" just like they had in '06. They never did do acoustic sets in '06, and the setlists themselves barely clocked in past two hours. I've often wondered if that was intentional, or if the fact that it was bloody hot out during those shows compromised pearl jam's original plans.

    I think you can enter once for each ticket level.

    very valid point.

    I wouldn't go expecting anything past 10:30 at the latest, given that you also have to factor in transporting 40k people out of a residential area.
    Houston, Texas... Believe it or not, there are 7 million people here... must be a couple of fans who'd love to see you play.

    Other Wrigley shows have gone until close to midnight. Not worried about an early curfew.

    You're probably right. But considering this is a baseball stadium which deals with night games that run to 10pm and sometimes later depending on the game, it might be flexible. They don't just turn off the lights at 11pm if a game is in extra innings. This could be different for concerts, I'm sure.

    Not familiar with the curfew laws there but it might be a little more flexible in that it's a weekend. However, the Cubs are limited in the number of night games they can play and from what I understand, typically play day games on Fridays. They did when I visited a few seasons ago.

    Love that it's just Pearl Jam by themselves.
