Please play Hard to Imagine Wrigley night 2

Yes another thread request but hear me out please. I consider my wife to be one of the best people in the world as I am sure a lot of us do. She is also the biggest Pearl Jam fan that I know next to me. We have been together for 20 years and married for 10. When they announced the 2018 tour in Europe we knew both of us could not make the trip together due to our young kids at home. She said without hesitation that I should go. I then decided to make the trip to Prague - Krakow - Berlin on my own. I met some fantastic people from here and saw some unbelievable shows. It was bittersweet though knowing Jess was home watching our 3 kids by herself and me having the time of my life. She sacrifices so much for people and her family everyday I would love to be able to give something back to her that is Pearl Jam related. 

Hard to Imagine is my wife's favourite song.  We will be in GA for Wrigley 2. We are flying in the day of the show and flying out the very next morning just so we can minimize the time away from our family. I would love for Hard to Imagine to be played for her and all of the other significant others out there that share and put up with our Pearl Jam obsession. No need for her to know just play the great song and whoever is near us in GA beware there will be tears if she is lucky to hear it!

    Thanks man! I actually spoke with you quite a bit when I was deciding if I should go on my trip. Thanks for the help and input. To be honest I have a lot of guilt still going without her. She has handled it great as she always does and really this thread is a big thank you to her and the other people out there that support us when we are traveling to see this great band. Without them I would not be able to see Pearl Jam as I am sure many others are in the same boat. There is no way Pearl Jam is coming anywhere near my city so we are forced to travel. I am very thankful for the family that I have.

    I strongly dislike requests of the band, but I would be happy if they played this one as well. 
    The only people we should try to get even with...
    ...are those who've helped us.

    I hear you. I went back and forth on making this thread for days. I hate cluttering the front page of the porch with another request but I really felt the need to do something special for my wife. It is a great song that I know a lot of people love and does not get played very often. It was the one song she said she would be sad that I heard with out her on my trip and gladly I did not get to hear it with out her. Yes there are worse things in the world going on and yes others have lost people in their lives or are going through some worse things then this. Still I am grateful for my life and the women who I married. I would love to see her hear this song live.

    Big support for you on this!
    I somewhat dislike requests too and yet I”ll tag on here bc it’s h2i which is maybe overdue a spin!

    I cant make first night at Wrigley despite having lottery tix due xwife (and best friend) had a stroke 2 months ago at age 45 and so Im full care of my daughter now - long story as to what we've been through but I’ll be there Monday and Im just thankful for this occasion to be with other fans such as  as op and hearing my favoirte of all songs would be just way over the top - and  I do wish ih2i closed or opened more shows!

    See you in a month!

    It would be. Fits anywhere in the show to be honest. I love that others enjoy this song as much as we do!
