    Chad Smith from a recent Rollng Stone interview:
     
    How did you end up playing with Eddie Vedder on his new solo album and live at the Ohana Fest?
    I work a lot with the producer/musician Andrew Watt. He’s amazing. We did a couple of songs for Ed, and then it turned out great and we just ended up doing a whole record, which is excellent. I’ve known him forever. We took Pearl Jam on that first tour in 1991 way back when, and you know, obviously he’s an amazing musician and so fun to connect with on a musical level. We’ve played together but we’ve never recorded or done any shows. It was really fun. Easy, fast. You didn’t hear it from me, but Ed’s talking about doing [more solo tour] dates

    I've been convinced for awhile now that Eddie will play shows, either PJ or solo, until the end.  I think he has the hunger to play as much as he can.  I cant say the same for the rest of the band.  Again, I have no intel on this, its just my gut feeling.  I don't think EV is the reason the band has scaled back so much over the last 5 years.

    I feel like someone in the band (doesn't really matter who, but probably not Ed) doesn't want to live the touring life until the pandemic is cleared up. One-off performances (or weekend trips) are probably ok, just no night after night of bus/plane, hotel, repeat. I could see that being not so attractive at this point.

    That being said, things are looking up - so I still anticipate spring.

    Jeff has said before that he's not the first the guy that wants to sign up for a big tour. And that's during normal, safe times.  Add in Covid and it's easy to see why there might be some hesitation.  

    Scaling back over the past 5 years or so might have a lot to do with their kids too. I think all of them except Jeff have had school aged kids during that time frame.

    Talk about a complete loser move

    The Weeknd canceled his entire arena tour so he could “go bigger” with a stadium tour instead

    What a slap in the face to ticket holders.  I’ve suddenly lost any and all interest in The Weeknd

    Good news is that frees up a weekend in February.  

    Is the entire touring industry just turning into “let’s savagely make as much $$$ as we can, who gives a shit about the fans and their plans?”

    Maybe it always has been but seems to be worse now than ever

    The vaccination being available to children may also have something to do with it. I believe Stone and Mike have kids under 12, could be wrong, but I think they do. Even if the kids aren't going on tour, those guys may not be thrilled about going out on tour and coming home and feeling like they would need to quarantine, or maybe they do want them to come along some too. As a parent of kids under 12, I know I will feel a lot better about getting more back to normal, once I can protect all the members of the household, and the guys in the band may feel similar, which may also be part of why touring continues to be delayed.
    words seem so out of place.

    I LOVE live music and typically if I am free and there is an arena show that looks even semi-interesting, I'll grab a cheap ticket and go check it out. The Weeknd is on my list of most boring shows I've seen. I'm not knocking him, but it really did not click with me.

    I thought The Weeknd was a band until he played the Super Bowl and it was just one guy.

    I love when artists spin moving to a bigger venue as an "upgrade."  Nope.  As an avid concert-goer, while certain venues are better than other, I can safely generalize that I prefer smaller venues.  And arenas vs. stadiums...no contest.  Stadiums are too big for concerts.

It actually makes a lot of sense on why PJ is potentially waiting on announcing next years dates now with some uncertainty still out there with covid.

    I just assumed that they could back out with covid being an excuse at any point after announcing the tour. It looks like that is not the case for some locations hence the risk of announcing too early.  Lots of bands have been doing this this year. 

    As a fan I want them to announce the dates asap but stuff like this makes sense from a business perspective to not  announce until they are almost certain the shows will happen.

    That was probably true before Covid was a known thing. Once it became known, any reasonable insurance company is going to not cover Covid as a reason for cancellation. Either that or the premiums to cover are insane.

    If album sales actually made $$$ like back in the day, I suspect everyone would just be cranking out albums and nobody would be out on tour. Let's face it, a few members of Pearl Jam probably have enough money to not deal with this poop. Especially the ones with young kids at home.

    There are two great festivals in Monterrey and Mexico City in November (Foo Fighters, Tame Impala, Twenty One Pilots). I just got back from Mexico City and it is an amazing place full of tacos. Would highly recommend if you are mildly adventurous.

    Is the entire touring industry just turning into “let’s savagely make as much $$$ as we can, who gives a shit about the fans and their plans?”

    Maybe it always has been but seems to be worse now than ever 
    I love when artists spin moving to a bigger venue as an "upgrade."  Nope.  As an avid concert-goer, while certain venues are better than other, I can safely generalize that I prefer smaller venues.  And arenas vs. stadiums...no contest.  Stadiums are too big for concerts.


    Yeah I immediately said to myself “thanks for the refund, I’m good now”

    In the past month, I’ve had The Killers cancel last minute without any band announcement, The Weeknd cancel to “upgrade” and my favorite band going on month 20 of silence regarding multiple shows

    Thank God for TwentyOne Pilots to keep my faith alive.  Going to the Boston show this weekend and Columbus show the next.

    Probably way less chance of needing to cancel an outdoor stadium show.  Might be a smart move by The Weeknd.

    He had too many weeknights on the indoor tour.
