    Who’s on PJs level that they would go-headline with?
    Foo Fighters?
    Please God no.
    I agree. I was just thinking of a band that is objectively at the same "level" in terms of popularity and has some sort of "connection" to the band.

    Pearl Jam with Alice in Chain playing a shorter set before (but longer than a opening act slot) would be cool also.
    I would dig AIC as an opener - if they must have one. I've yet to see Jerry and his band perform so this would be a good opportunity.
  • No 
  • 100% yes....actually I miss that. Got RnR education with X, fell in love with BRMC etc. at previous PJ shows...

    Maybe that means a shorter PJ set, but honestly...that's OK with me and it could mean that less time = more energy (and no sit-down section)...

    More openers and less PJ sounds terrible and co headliners sounds even worse.

    An Evening With at a ballpark beats a co-headling show in an arena everytime.

    I don't mind the band bringing back an opening band. If they do though please let it be bands that have never opened for Pearl Jam.

    No, absolutely not

    (although Rancid may make me reconsider)

    Yes!!! I think they’d need it for an Aussie stadium tour, to sell the tickets. 
    The Strokes would be grand, or Black Keys or Kings Of Leon again. Wolfmother would probably open. 
    But I’d love King Gizz, Jason Isbell, You Am I, Strand Of Oaks, IDLES... or a Smashing Pumpkins double header would be a dream.

    There's plenty of new, great music out there. I enjoy a lot of it.  They don't have to open for Pearl Jam to make it so.
