ARC .......possible opener for Cincinnati

SICKMANSICKMAN Posts: 56
Given the history of the venue, and the circumstances, I'd like to throw out an idea/suggestion/request for the boys to play "Arc" as the opening number for the Cincy '14 show.

If I'm not mistaken, this will be the first time the band has played Cincy (with general admission factors at play) since the Roskilde tragedy.

I can't think of a better way to open the night; pay homage to fallen fans; and raise a voice of solidarity

The evening will be special nonetheless, but hearing "Arc" - and knowing the heart put into its' fruition.......

.....That'd make the experience seem, for lack of a better word, blessed



Having had the pleasure of hearing Ed perform this gem on his solo tours, I don't think the song has been officially retired from the bands repertoire......At least, I hope not..

Peace to all......and thanks for your consideration

  • Not going to happen. Pearl Jam Will most likely never play that song again as a band. I would pan on Something like the Kids are alright or something similar again.

    You are mistaken. They played Cincy in 2006. Also, it's the same building as the Who tragedy. That event was mentioned the last time around.

    I don't really get the connection between Roskilde and Cincinnati, either.

    The only people we should try to get even with...
    ...are those who've helped us.

    Right 'round the corner could be bigger than ourselves.

    The Who played a show in Cincy in 1979 where 11 fans were killed.

    Yeah - I mentioned that in the part of my post you cut out of the quote.

    I still don't really think there's a strong connection...plus they've already played this building since Roskilde.

    I'd expect Long Road again, which was played in 2006.

    The reference was to the general admission (at least partial) status of the show. Up til 07 ( lolla in chi- town....amazing night!) PJ had sworn off shows with GA following the Roskilde event. Actually, Cincy had a ban on GA shows up til Bruce Almighty turned stuff around with a gig there in '02. Had tix to the Cincy '06 show .... Didn't quite make that one. That's another story for another time....but I'm sure it was all reserved

    Maybe I don't have a soul, but I think it is strange that it is almost like people look forward to dedications to solumn events like it will make the show better. I just am excited to see Pearl jam in Cinci, and am not playing Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon to link a show to a depressing event to somehow make the show more emotional and "better".

    I just don't understand the thought process.

  • They'll never play it again. 9 times in 2003, for the 9 victims of Roskilde.

    Cincinnati, or any other US city for that matter has no relevance

    God I hope not. ARC is a must skip for me whenever it comes on. I wasn't able to make any shows last fall so I am hoping for the Pendulum opener.

    Kevin Bacon was in Frost/Nixon, with Rance Howard, who was in Walk Hard-The Dewey Cox Story, with Eddie Vedder, who performed at Roskilde.
