  • They will never play Indiana ever again.  That is my prediction.
  • He said something along the lines as “last show for the foreseeable future” with a grin. I took that as positive news, but the end of the show Ed shouted out all the 10c fans and that “we’ll miss you bad”. So I have no idea.
    IMO there’s no way they skip Boston and Chicago next year

    Would really like a U.K./European tour next year. Though I’m thinking an EV Earthlings mini tour to Europe is more likely given EV just wants to play live and Jeff hates touring. 

    Don’t know why but my instinct is that they may never play Aus/NZ ever again. Makes less economic sense than North America and Europe. 
    Can I ask a stupid mildly related question? Why is Chad Smith doing these Earthings dates after a massive stadium tour for RHCP? Seems like dude might just want to watch some football or something given the size of the checks he must be cashing.

    I'm sure your right... I don't particularly enjoy it here either, so I don't blame them.

    Chad sat and watched the entire MSG show from start to finish while sitting on a cooler at the side of the stage.  I think he just loves music.

    I've seen Chad drum 5 different times in the past year, and the Peppers only accounted for one😅

    If there doing a record which all of them said they were and recorded stuff there’s no way they don’t tour it. Especially they didn’t get a proper tour for last record release 
  • Chad is a machine!

    And ... speaking of drums, did I just see something about drums echo in the night?

    Hurry Pearl Jam! They're waiting there for you... And take your didgeridoo too!

    I’m holding on to the hope PJ will come back to Oz at some point. During the pandemic Ed did an interview for a media outlet here and said something along the lines of ‘the rescheduled tour (Gigaton) might start in Australia, it might be the first place we play’. (Something like that anyway). Now, that never came to fruition, and the continuing pandemic made it hard here, especially in some regions, however it said to me that touring here is still a possibility. I think though that touring here isn’t as economically viable as say Euro or US but they have a great fan base down here. Again, I’m holding onto hope! 🤞

    My sense is the this killer US tour was a lead up to a US Stadium Tour next year. They could have done multiple nights in many markets; but opted for one arena show. Ticket resale prices were crazy. Setlists were crazy. This all builds up demand for the band which will support a 2023 Stadium Run. Touring is more expensive now. Another more extensive
     stadium run makes sense for them at this point in their careers.

    I'm surprised they haven't attempted a football stadium in the past decade.

    Ed definitely has a thing for baseball. Not sure if I can recall the band ever mentioning football.

    Saw RHCP at MetLife and the sound was horrible (band was great). I was further back at Fenway so not sure if it’s stadiums in general or not.

    Ed sure loves that Walter Payton jersey!  
  • It would be sweet if they made up Sacramento, LV, Vienna, Prague and Amsterdam.  Obviously economics and logistics wouldn’t support just doing those, and if they were going to make them up they would have postponed instead of cancelled, but it would still be sweet if they happened.

    I would disagree with this.  They can play ballparks in Boston, NYC, Chicago, Philly, and Seattle.  Every other market is an Arena at the most.  

    Even for the Fenway shows in 2018, tickets weren't THAT hard to come by near the date of the show

    As crazy as resale was for NYC and Philly, the total opposite was true for the California and other spring shows.  There was also plenty of tickets available the week of for most of the fall shows this year.

    Sure add those too.  I guess they’re a bit different in that the reasons for cancellation were not band illness but sure to fans who had tickets it’s all the same.  So now we have a 7 show tour.

    They presumably can only fill ballparks if they're not in a regular touring cycle. Tons of people traveled for those shows.

    And on the day of MSG and Camden, tix could be had relatively easily. Many ball parks have character, are a destination unto themselves and have smaller capacity than football stadiums. I would go back to Wrigley and Fenway in a heartbeat. Football stadiums not so much.

    I don't know what would and would not sellout, but if RHCP can pull off a stadium tour then I don't see why PJ couldn't.

    If baseball stadiums, Great American ballpark in Cincinnati is pretty cool. It even has a "steam boat" deck beyond the outfield fence.

    28 y/o on the East Coast. Arguably Pearl Jam's biggest market and can confirm that nobody my age seemed to give a shit about Pearl Jam until this most recent tour. Demographics are starting to change at their shows, but it's still nothing like what you'd see with some of their contemporaries.
  • I met a 25-35 Y.O. in London who had never heard of PJ.  Man, I felt old :)

    This could be true, I really don't know. But, we have these discussions on the board all the time. There was doubt on this board that PJ could fill Wrigley in 2013, or that they could do it twice and fill Fenway in 2016. It's not my preference, but I don't think a smartly scheduled run of stadiums would be a problem.

    I think if they were they would need to bring along a stadium sized opening band like RHCP just had with The Strokes. Pluralone isn’t putting any asses in those seats.
