Issue of Pearl Jam To Play Indonesia & other Asian countries

Dear all,

The Indonesian Pearl Jam fans club (https://www.facebook.com/groups/pearljamindonesia/) has deployed a campaign to bring Pearl Jam to play show in Indonesia. We are in close co-operation with local concert promoter to make it happen.

https://www.facebook.com/PearlJamJKT14

Currently it is under talks between local concert promoter & booking agent/Pearl Jam management and we are still waiting for another country's decision for a "Pearl Jam Asian Tour." If that country is a go then "Pearl Jam Asian Tour" is on. It is so that they can cover some countries in Asia in one tour.

The plan is to continue "Pearl Jam Asian Tour" from Big Day Out in Australia to do 'stand-alone' shows in Indonesia and some countries in Asian region.

Should that happen, will you guys be coming to Indonesia (and other Asian countries) to attend the shows? Currently we are aiming for Jakarta, the capital city of Indonesia. If there's (also) a show in Bali, would you guys come? I believe you guys know Bali more, right?

This is just a test case of whether international fans of Pearl Jam will come to a tropical country which haven't seen Pearl Jam live for 23 years now (24 years in 2014.) It would be awesome for us all to dance to "Lightning Bolt" live under the tropical sun (or moon.) :D

    I hope you guys get some shows; that would be awesome! The 95 asian tour was so long ago! Now they would be some cool boots to release. I can't believe there are shows on that tour where we still don't know the actual set list.
    I'll ride the wave where it takes me......

    I would hit Japan for sure, and perhaps your home state if I could afford it.

    If this is happening, we are welcoming you to our cities, Jakarta the capital city, and Bali if it's feasible and you guys are coming. We can try to convince the promotor.

    I wish Pearl Jam would scrap the Big Day Out festival and embark on a proper Australian / Asian tour next year. That would be soo much better.

    I would definitely do an Asian tour (all being my missus giving the nod of approval with a newborn child). You guys are our neighbours, and the Aussie way is to help our neighbours out! I sincerely hope you get your tour there this year. I will certainly do Bali and/or Malaysia depending on tour dates maybe Japan/China... It will be very interesting to see if this would eventuate as my life would be thrusted into panic mode!!!! :)

    Moving to Bali next May, so if that timing is right I would do the whole tour....hopefully not too late in the year if they tour!
  • I really hope to have a good news from the local organizer. It just a few month before OZ

    Would certainly be IN for some S/E Asia PJ. Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam.

    I come to Asia twice a year anyway. I would certainly make the trip and hopefully follow them through a few countries. Good luck with your efforts!!

    I'm planning on traveling around S.E Asia from April next year, so if they play in the region, then I'll definitely go see 'em.

    Insider information from local promoter:
    The countries in Asia which are currently in a bidding position for Pearl Jam concert are Indonesia and Singapore.

    Sadly there are barely enough other countries in Asia to offer for Pearl Jam.
    If you are living in any Asian country, please urge your local promoter (or just to make any connections) to bid for a Pearl Jam concert.
    Also please network with fellow local Pearl Jam fans to make a fans club community.

    Please 'like' to support Pearl Jam to play Jakarta (Indonesia) in 2014.

    Should Pearl Jam come to Jakarta, you are all invited. :)

    Other Asian countries are also encouraged to launch a similar campaign.

    We will send petition as well to Pearl Jam management.
    We've been collecting support since 2005.

    I'm pretty sure Japan would be a great place for them to play. And Hong Kong.
