    I'm upset but agree under the circumstances
    I know I was born and I know that I'll die. The in between is mine. I am mine.

    This is not the right decision.  They are making matters worse by affecting jobs these shows create.  The hype and hysteria over this is insane.  People are dying of the flu at an exponentially higher rate yet this is what we're left with lol. Way to buy into guys. Just another election year scare. Go back and look in the past if you need proof this is overblown. 

    I work in health care and the reason for all the "hysteria" is because not that much is known about this virus.  People over 60 and anyone comprimised (a lot of people don't even KNOW they are comprimised) can have a 10 to 15% mortaility rate.  You wanna spread your germs and wipe out 15% of our older community and anyone with a lowered immunity?  
    Yes if your young and healthy you will or may get sick and recover 100%.  The focus is not on that, it's on helping stop the spread so we don't lose a huge chunk of our population.

    Even leaving the President out of it, the Gov't should be advising it's citizens and organizations about the best way to handle themselves in a situation like this. They are currently not doing that. 
    Wash your hands and stay home if you are sick. Have you not heard this message? Would you rather the government shut down all events by making it illegal to congregate over a certain threshold? Sorry, I do not want the government to have that kind of control unless this gets really out of control. The government didn't cause this and they shouldn't have to hold people's hands either. This isn't going to kill everyone but it will kill many if we don't practice basic hygiene and common sense. There's not much the government can do.

    I can’t believe team ED is going to blame the government as part of the reasoning for canceling the tour. What a joke you’ve become and I mean that from the bottom of my heart. Learn when to leave politics at the door for once in your freaking life dude. 


    Really? You're off your head. Blame your idiot of a president for dropping this ball.

    Would be cool if they did a live simulcast type show to tide us over, kind of like a combination of Radiohead "Live From the Basement" and Self-Pollution Radio.
    An album release party at the Showbox, live-streamed worldwide, would be cool.

    Nope. Not gonna let your BS fly. When the idiot keeps getting on TV saying how great of a job he’s doing with everything, meanwhile muting the ACTUAL science...and people are coughing themselves to death all over the planet....they absolutely picked the right time to call out what this administration is failing at.

    I support the decision, it sucks for everyone but think of it from the bands perspective. They need to protect their own fans, there was an incident 20 years ago that we all remember and never want to deal with again in any form. They’ll make up the shows no doubt. Only complaint I have is there should have been en email sent. Not everyone is on this site 24/7 or uses social media. My mom called me to tell me the news as she frequents Facebook. An email needs to be sent out to all Ten Club members ASAP. There’s a good chunk of fans who have no idea right now.

    Which is obviously not great for a band with a keyboard player in that age demographic.

    It sucks, and hopefully the rescheduled shows will work out with everyone's schedule. 

    What I'm a little bitter about is that I learned this from a friend who saw it on Facebook and texted me about it. 

    How about an email to people who actually paid for tickets and made hotel arrangements? 🤔
    The news broke an hour ago. They wouldn’t leave you in the dark. Those emails need to go out to tens of thousands of people. No need to get butthurt.

    You're right! The President should have postponed these Pearl Jam concerts sooner and then called each and every one of us to let us know!

    I do not blame the President for the coronavirus.

    I do not blame the President for oil prices going down.

    I do not even blame the President for the stock market going down 2,000 points today.

    I blame the President for being a lying, deceitful, pile of garbage that has done nothing more than tell everyone how great of a job he and his team has done, while REPEATEDLY saying how 'under control' this all was, when that was in no way, shape, or form the reality of the situation.

    Funny..... Most PJ fans I know and or have met over the years have a high degree care and empathy towards others, way opposite of this..

    You're kidding right?

    Trump has been a bumbling idiot about this whole thing, focusing instead on his ratings and the stock market.  He has no clue what he's talking about.  He didn't even know you could die from the flu when his grandfather did just that!!!  Trump also defunded the CDC, so there are less people working on disease control.  To top it off he put Pence in charge of coronavirus response.  The guy made an HIV outbreak in Indiana worse when he was in charge of that.

    The government is a clusterfuck right now concerning the virus.  He has every right to call them out on not being responsible.  Have you not been following along?  Politics are relevant in this right now because the government is fucking dropping the ball HARD.  We are looking to them to say SOMETHING and advise and they have done NOTHING.

    Thank you. 100% the right call.

    Also 100% appropriate to bring the government's response into this since a more capable administration and better preventative measures might have better mitigated the potential for this postponement. To anybody bringing transmission rates, recovery rates, growth rates from other countries into the equation, please look at the lengths those countries are going to, including-for starters-acknowledging the scale of the problem. What's happening in the US right now is an embarrassment and will unfortunately lead to a more sustained period of exponential growth. Nobody knows how bad this is in the States right now but it's nearly guaranteed to get much worse before it gets better.

    I appreciate the band looking out for us. Cheers!
