    Stadiums in Seattle, Chicago, NYC, Philly, Atlanta, Houston.  I'm not a big fan of stadiums but would be the only way to satisfy demand.

    On the upside, I think big stadium destination shows are the most likely to have longer sets. If the band recorded albums more frequently and did arena tours w/ an opening act to promote those albums, and then hit stadiums with the "Evening with..." format on the off years, I would be a very satisfied fan.

    No doubt.  I had a great time at the Wrigley shows in 18' and would up be up for knocking another ballpark off the list.  Just prefer the sound and closeness better with arenas.  Either way, we'll pack it out!

    What exactly is a shed?? I just know it roughly translates to a barn which would be awesome but highly unlikely ;)

    Ah, thanks! I wouldn’t want a whole tour with sheds then but Waldbühne is insanely nice and always has a good atmosphere

    The 2023 tour will be a tour for the next album as the gigaton era and the 25 song sets era concludes.

    They could satisfy demand if they tour like most other bands I’ve been fortunate to be a fan of. Tour the US when you are ready to play 25 shows. If need be, take a year off and play a huge country like the US when you are ready to do it right. In the meantime, Australia and NZ have waited a long time, and their combined population is tiny compared to the big draw regions. So if only a handful of shows is all that can be done, that’s a great spot for 2023.

    Stadiums and sheds are horrible for PJ shows for 80% of the audience. There is something special when this band is surrounded by their fans. When they are not, like at stadiums and sheds, something significant is missing.

     I was lucky to be in the Camden pit, and it was a great show, but most of the space near Pearl Jam was empty, no wing seats, no side seats, no rear seats, and I couldn’t feel the emotion of the vast majority of the crowd , which was like a mile away from the band. Could not even hear them. Yes I was  on top of the PA, but at a 360 degree arena show, so many fans are engaged with the band and the energy is unmatched

    If 2022 has proven anything, there are sections of the US and world that want PJ shows much more than others. There were many shows that were easy tickets. So why would stadiums be needed if they played the amount of shows that match the location of the fan base. For once, schedule shows with customer service in mind. It would be sad to skip Fenway, but for many of us, it is a horrible venue for rock shows, as are almost all stadiums.

    PJ will probably do stadiums. There's too much money to be made for such little work. At this point in their career the band is a massive capitalist venture and the guys are old. 

    Still love them more than just about any other band, but call it what it is. :)

    Switch Houston for AT&T Stadium in Dallas. + DFW is a bigger "Hub" airport.

    Painful to say but will they fill stadiums outside of their 2 hometowns and the 3 major markets in the northeast, without excessive traveling by fan club members? Maybe? 

    If the goal is to draw fans from around the US to travel to fill a handful of stadiums, maybe they should be considering the environmental impact of all that travel, and wait to tour the US when they can do a proper tour that fairly hits all the major markets in 2 or 3 legs.

    At least one more "old fashioned" full US Tour please before calling it quits. Its been ten years. If they need to charge a little more to make the economics work so be it, worth every dollar to see them at a 360 arena show.

    Gigaton era being over makes me sad. I feel like they barely toured it, and they were over most of the songs by the time they got to play them live. It’s a great album. I feel like we missed out on what would have been a great, energized album tour in 2020. 
    100% agreed. To each their own and all, but I'm kind of amazed how many folks on here shit talk Gigaton. It's a really solid record, especially for a band 30 years in.

    Everyone’s different. I love LB and that gets dragged through the mud here. I just can’t get into gigaton. I’m glad it was kept to minimum during my two shows and forever grateful that I didn’t get Buckle Up, Alright and River Cross. Just my opinion.

    Yeah, I wish I had gotten to hear more of it. Only four songs in two shows - Alright, Who Ever Said, DOTC twice and 7 O'clock twice. Don't really have a feel for any of these songs live yet.

    I really like the album but I don’t think most of the songs play well live. DOTC and 7 o’clock just seem to kill the vibe even though they are great songs

    I'm in the opposite boat. I can't wait for the Gigaton era to be over. I actually dig the album and have listened to it a lot. For me, I just associate the gigaton era with the pandemic, canceled shows, the shorter sets, the craze in getting tickets to certain shows (Baltimore, Nashville, MSG), etc... I said to a friend at one point during the first leg of the tour that this tour seemed to have been cursed from the get go. Ready for a reset even if that means fewer (and stadium) shows in 2023 but I'm sure that will be a very unpopular opinion around here.

    All of this. Love the album but it's a cursed thing.

    Let's get back to shows that are less static where anything can happen and longer sets. A new album and stadiums is the way to proceed.
