Flying out from NYC to see the show in SC and was wondering who EV's band is going to be.
see thats where I think this whole "april fools" thing is gonna kick in. My prediction is that his backing band is the rest of Pearl Jam. And this "solo" tour is all just a big ruse.
it will be "vic" like, ed will come out and do his thing, then the rest of the band will rock out. I just dont see Ed playing for 2+ hours by himself
wouldnt that be special?
not a chance in hell. i also doubt the shows will be over 2 hours. this is a solo ed tour guys, not a classic pearl jam tour. i bet he plays 90 minutes. lots of songs just him and an acoustic. maybe a few session musicians with him.

good theory it could work just liek the vic do his itw stuff then introduce soem friends of his and man oh man that place will erupt. Glad i will see soem if the first shows so if it does happen i will be totally caught off guard and surprised
I agree. This is going to be a purely EV event. I think Eddie is capable of entertaining a crowd of fans for 90 minutes all by himself.
I predict a total of at least 10-15 of story-telling between songs
These are NOT cleverly disguised Pearl Jam shows.
An artist can't just sell tickets advertising one thing and actually giving ticket-buyers something different.
That would be false advertising, wouldn't it? At the very least, it could open the door for all kinds of issues from people who really do want/expect to see Eddie solo, and paid money to do so.
theres a good chance it will be no band at all just Eddie, a guitar, a voice and some soul.
Somehow, I don't think the rest of PJ wants to be seen as Ed's backup band for his ITW tour...
