    Grateful Dead made their home in San Francisco and played a ton of shows. Pearl Jam should do the same in Seattle with yearly new years shows and regular shows throughout the year

    Stockholm had to wait 12 years, between 2000 and 2012, for Pearl Jam to return, so my sympathy with youse guys will have to be on hold for a while ;-)

    the festivals in Europe next summer are bound to be calling.

    whilst I hope we get arena shows, the festivals are a huge draw these days

    I predict the next North American tour will be a stadium tour

    I also predict they will play the Joe Louis arena in 2017 to officially close it out

    As long as the festivals keep throwing mad cash at them there will be dates.
    Just a question of which continent. My guess is that they are ready to take their families back to Europe or Australia.

    Seattle and Vancouver can be lame crowds because the fans have seen them there so many damn times over the years. I don't blame the band for taking a break from Seattle so they can build up demand again.

    Whoa whoa, don't drag Vancouver into the apathetic we deserve something special and we aren't going to show emotion until we do group. Vancouver shows always rock because surprisingly most of the elitist PJ fans won't come to Van if they are playing Seattle which means those of us who just want to rock the fuck out get to be there. There was an almost night and day difference in 2013, Vancouver was on fire as far as the crowd went, was only good in Seattle. The band responds to the crowds, better crowds happier band better setlists/energy.
    Also don't be all butthurt because you moved to Seattle to try and be closer to the band and they play other places, that is your issue not the bands.

    The part around 1:46:00 where Eddie says that there are a few people in the front row showing no energy whatsoever, you mean?

    Hey, I love Vancouver. It gave us the birth of angry Eddie for the lame security at Town Pump back in 1991, and it gave us the rebirth of GA after its lame crowd in 2011.

    Glad to know I'm not an 'elitist' fan... ;)
    I'm up for rocking Vancouver AND Seattle...maybe the wrong people are in GA or on the rail. Put me on the rail in Seattle and I will lose my shit. (as long as I don't have pneumonia like at the last show), and I have some other people to bring up there with me that will guarantee to put energy into the band.
    The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.

    I agree on Vancouver. Every show I've seen in Vancouver has been pretty off the walls. '98, '00, '03, '05, '09 (although I wasn't at that one, I was told it rocked some serious ass), '11 (I thought the overall crowd was pretty good, even if if some people up front didn't like ole).

    Vancouver 2013 was so good, and the crowd was so into it, that I think it broke into my top 5. Something that hadn't been done in looooong time. I might even put it at #3 behind gorge '05, and boise 2000. I completely agree about the comments about Vancouver being underrated because 10c'ers don't go to the shows there. Thus there aren't alot of us to talk about how good the Vancouver shows are.

    Seattle is Bipolar. I've seen some kickass shows (#2 '98, #2 '00, Gorge 05, Gorge I&II '06). Even 2013 was pretty good (but no Vancouver).

    My question is would we get a Vancouver show if they're already playing Pemberton this year? I know Pemberton isn't Vancouver, but it's like saying the Gorge isn't Seattle. The majority of attendees are coming from the big city, so that's the same market. It would be cool to get a Vancouver one, but I am wondering if maybe we get a Standalone Seattle show without a Vancouver show.

    The post above about a PJ stadium tour. I'm not convinced the band is big enough. Sure they can sell out Wrigley and Fenway in some of the most densely populated areas of the US. I'm not sure they can sell 45000+ seats at a whole tour's worth of cities. I imagine they'll keep doing them in the cities big enough to support it, but keep playing arenas everywhere else.

    The only ballparks I think they could sell out are Wrigley, Fenway, Yankee/Citi, citizens bank (philly), San Francisco, Safeco and then Busch in StLouis if it was a destination type of event

    Yah I'm thinking the big megatroplis of America. The ones with with over 10 million people in the area. You don't actually see too many stadium shows in Seattle as it's smaller. I'm not 100% PJ would sell out a stadium there. Maybe? I guess people would travel to see PJ in their hometown.. 54000 tickets for a Seattle show for 1 night. That's a helluva lot harder than 20000 tickets to the same people for two seperate nights.

    Very good point...PJ has a lot of great die hard fans but do they have a lot of "casual" ones?

    East Coast is where the $$$ is.....

    that's funny cause shit sure is hella expensive here, and it is not like they can't go sleep in their own beds before and after the show, so the much lower expenses has to offset a lot of that, also it's not like they can't just play 3 shows here whenever they want, even if they aren't touring
    Good point.

    They could easily announce "We're playing two shows in Seattle next Monday and Tuesday. 10C sale starts now (Monday), closes on Wednesday and public sale starts Friday."

    THAT is how you cater toward the local fans...make it difficult for people to travel.

    full disclosure: i have never seen PJ in the city of Seattle... but over the years I have heard the same theme, PJ in Seattle isn't all that amazing as you would think, especially the crowds... maybe people out west think they are too cool to show passion or emote?

    but, when we went out to Seattle in 2005 for the gorge show I was shocked by the lack of locals interest in Pearl Jam... literally everyone we talked to was just like "yeah, I loved Ten in high school" or just looked at us like we were losers when we mentioned we came out to see the band... everyone just seemed very indifferent... and when we arrived at the gorge I asked about 100 random people where they were from and ZERO were from the pacific northwest, let alone Seattle...

    long story short, I have zero interest in seeing them in Seattle... the gorge is another story, which has everything to do with the venue and visiting the wonderful city of Seattle while out there, and nothing to do with PJ playing in the Seattle area



    I wonder if they've moved on to Macklemore and Lewis.

    There better be a Cleveland 2017 rumor to go along with the Detroit 2017 rumor

    Just sayin

    Then they could mosey on down to Charleston, WV...perhaps by way of Columbus? (BTW, Charleston Civic Center is getting a multi-million dollar overhaul and construction supposed to be completed in spring '17 last I heard).
