Chad Smith Indicates More EV and the Earthlings Shows

Taken from a recent Rolling 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 don’t want to look.  We’d really like to take our daughter but I heard it’s “3 day festival” like prices. 

    My only time seeing them was for free in a tiny club.  I can’t top that memory.

    I think that if PJs don't reschedule their 2020 US concerts for the spring of 2022, I believe there is a very good chance for an 2022 US Spring tour of Eddie Vedder & The Earthlings. Just my 2 cents.

    This would be a slap in the face to everyone holding PJ tickets for 2+ years.  If EV can play indoor shows, why not PJ?  I don't see this happening.

    I think the EV shows happen after PJ.

    That being said, The Earthlings sounded great that weekend and it would be a blast to hear them play live again.
    I LOVE MUSIC.

    How about EV shows in Jan/Feb followed by the rescheduled PJ shows in March/April?

    Great news! Thanks for sharing, OP. The collective energy of Eddie and The Earthlings at Ohana was fantastic, and I'd be stoked to see them play those songs - along w/ the rest of the album - again live :plus_one:

    Highlight of the weekend for me, mini supergroup that just ROCKED.  What a great surprise.

  • I enjoyed Ed's sets at Ohana, but if we get Earthlings show dates before Pearl Jam rescheduled dates I am going to be pretty frustrated.

    Kick that Watt dude out of the Earthlings and I am in.  Chad was a lot of fun to watch at Ohana.

    Because EV is one member maybe someone else in PJ doesn't want to play indoors yet.....

    +1.  Am interested in RHCP tix but not at these prices, at least not this far in advance.  I have also found in the past that you’re lucky to get 90 minutes out of RHCP whereas we complain if PJ does less than 150.

    Logistically, it might be tricky to schedule an Earthlings tour.  I doubt Eddie will want any indoor shows in the coming months due to the same safety concerns that prevent Pearl Jam from performing arenas for the time being.  

    That takes us to next year.  Jeff has stated PJ plans to record in the winter but they are not the type of band that holes up in a studio for months on end.  That can leave some time for Ed to play some shows with his solo band before gearing up to finally launch the Gigaton tour (hopefully) in the spring.  Then there is always the possibility more Earthling shows could take place after those rescheduled U.S. dates and before RHCP shifts into high gear.  

    Pearl Jam also has a summer European tour and more U.S. shows in the fall (again, hopefully).  Though he has performed solo shows immediately following a PJ tour, the bigger dilemma is finding an appropriate time for all the Earthling musicians to be available.  

    On a positive note, Ed tends to hold his cards close to his chest, so if he talked to Chad about playing more shows, he probably has every intention on making that happen.

    Great question.  In a typical nonchalant manner, Jeff mentions it at about the 27 minute mark on the "McGonigal’s Chronicles: Making Montana Connections" podcast.

    Wow. Thanks for sharing. I won't hold my breath as they say things some times that don't pan out, but cool that recording more new music soon seems to be something they are planning on right now.
