    Called me a week before the show to see if I was going and I said of course, me and my daughter are, he said, so am I with my wife, well meet up in the parking lot. Cool as fuck I thought to myself, hes a true fan now. So were in the parking lot drinking before the show bbq'ing all that good shit and Asbury Park comes up and he is telling stories to everyone about that show in detail and how awesome it was and he joined the fan club right after and bought the new album because tho he didnt know any of those songs but he liked them on his first listen live at he show and how he over the past year pretty much dove into every album PJ had released because he now had all this time on his hands from at first being laid up in the hospital for a month to never being to return to work and doing physical therapy for the last year and how the music just helped him thru it all. I was totally and completley blown away by this. How could my thoughts of this show been so fucking negative? I felt like a complete and total asshole. 

    But I was also so fucking happy that for once in my life that I kept these opinions to myself. Its been a slow process, but a steady one of learning to , if you aint going nothing nice to say, dont say anything. Unless its about NYC. Lol.

    The fear of my daughter having a bad show because of the bands current touring practices and me hyping them over the years was now gone. She was so excited and I almost fucked it up by telling her about  what I thought about  the Asbury Park ishow in the parking lot before going inside. Then I drifted off in thought what if me and my buddy from work had talked about my true feelings of the show afterwards on the way home. Then he gets hurt at work and my opinion of his first show is ruined by my selfish and entitled opinions on the way home and then isnt brought up again because we were not seeing each other on a daily basis? Does he dive in PJ the way he did with all that unexpected time he now had on his hands? Is he at the Camden show talking about Asbury Park that made me in turn not saying anything to my daughter? 

    Well, all that being said, we end up seeing the best fucking show PJ put on the entire tour. Length, awesome set list, incredible passionate fucking corwd that sang along in unison loudly with every fucking song they played that night, even the new ones and the obscure ones, as is par for the course in Philly. And me not expecting any of it. And it had two extra peoiple that night , had a tear in my eye after me my daughter and my buddy sang every word to Hard To Imagine and on top of it my daughter pointing out how she loved the new ending to song. Get the fuck outta here I thought to myself, she knows the songs just as well, if nit better than I do.And my buddies wife is now sold on PJ and has dove in head first. We will all be together for as many shows as the boys decide to do in the future when they play Philly. Njumbers 56, 3, 2 and 2 for us. Cant fucking wait.

    Moral of this story? I lied, there isnt one. Just wanted to get this off my chest for a while now, lol. Dont want to tell my new concert buddies a story they dont need to hear. Theyre at that point where we all once were,Feeling the crest of that wave breaking just right and just knowing that you got a fucking good one, and its going to take you al,l the way back to shore one way or the other. I need to be reminded of that. 

    Oh, for future rumor threads, let’s just say it’s safe to say it and a rumor thread until our own version of Jimmy The Greek, otherwise known as DIMI stops in and says hello lol. Hope to hear from you soon buddy. I think we will.
    Lol. What a joke.

    It’s weird that people being excited and speculating about a tour generates some salty responses.

    It's SoCal that has seen the most shows since 2013.

    SoCal 9 (2 San Diego, 4 LA, 3 Ohana)
    New England 7 (1 Hartford, 2 Worcester, 4 Fenway)
    PNW 6 (3 in Seattle, 1 each in Portland, Vancouver and Spokane)
    Chicago 6 (5 at Wrigley, 1 in Moline)
    New York 6 (3 at MSG, 2 in Brooklyn, 1 in Central Park - more if you count New Jersey)

    Of these five regions, only SoCal and New York have had a Pearl Jam show since 2018. 
    The Northeast wins the cake.. between Philly, NY, NE and surrounding areas... etc etc... all very drivable between them..   


    haha 5% odds msg every time and resale markets at $800+ to sit amongst the rafters.even Camden was a very tough ticket if you needed a seat.  They just don’t play a lot of shows at all, and when they do, they hit a lot of small markets. So major markets with enormous demand always very underrepresented, except socal in recent times.

    I do not have the patience to read the entire two posts. Hearing Ed sing wishlist with a beer in my hand, my toes in the sand, surrounded by surf and PEOPLE after being stuck inside for 18 months was as magical as any other moment this band has given me.

    So, there were rumors of Eddie @ Telluride back in November. And one of the highly rumored cities for PJ in September is Noblesville. Yesterday on my way to work, SXM was playing the Telluride 2016 show. On my way home from work, they were playing the Noblesville 2000 show. It could be a coincidence, but......

    The band tours so little because we all show up when they do.  They take the fans for granted.  We buy the merch. Fill up the arenas.   Beg for them to play.   

    Seems like a one sided relationship.

    Agreed. “They don’t owe us nothing blah blah blah” yea I know. But it is what it is.

    My belief that an announcement was imminent stemmed from me incorrectly buying into the rumors of Fenway shows this year. With those rumors dead and buried, and if it is late summer/September for shows, we might not hear anything until May.

    There were actually two seats next to mine at Camden that went unclaimed the entire show. Gave our row some extra space to spread out.

    I would strongly recommend a polyamorous relationship with like 50-100 other bands. You won't miss the ones moving at a slower pace as much.
