Eddie Vedder playing Metro - Hot Stove Cool Music?

Just curious ... but wondering if anyone knows if Eddie will be the 'special guest' playing the Hot stove Cool Music concert at the Metro this upcoming July 9th.
From all the lil' comments out on XRT and Len Kasper's blog ... my feeling it could be Ed since he's a huge Cubs fan ... friends with Theo and more ... but no word out yet and haven't seen anything written except that there will be an "All Start guest ... no ... a Hall of Fame guest performer?

    That would be neat. Plenty of great material to choose from if that ends up being the case- http://www.discogs.com/artist/671844-Kermit-The-Frog
    But yeah, would be cool. Hall of Fame guest performer could also be Peter Gammons.

    The Cubs twitter account just confirmed that it's Ed.

    The Metro is small. That would be awesome to see. Those tickets will be impossible to get.

    Thanks and agree ... they did announce it ...
    Looks like they are selling VIP tix now for $1,000 (pretty hefty .. but it is for charity)
    Also selling GA today at noon via etix
    Wondering when the last time Ed or PJ played the Metro? 1992? As SteffyLou said .... very small!

    is it just him or is he just guest starring?

    Him and a ton of guests... will probably be like the Who show where he plays a few solo song, a few with some guests, and a few with their big all-star band.
  • Wish I would have rolled the dice when the first batch of tix went on sale. Good luck everyone!

    Curious to see if EV is part of the VIP preparty.

    I went to 3 of these charity event shows in the past and the other artists play in the beginning and then main headliner comes out and plays an hour and 1/2 or so. In 2012 Smashing Pumpkins played a 15 song set. So hoping its the same this year.

    And also to note, looks like Jimmy Chamberlin won't be playing now as he will back on tour with the Pumpkins this summer. Their new drummer and bassist quit (*shocking).

    So at noon where it says "NOT ON SALE" that is where we will be able to buy them? I don't even see where it says tix will be on sale at noon.

    18 & Over. Valid State or Federal ID required for entry.

    Those were only a select few of the tickets since the concert had already went on sale at the end of May.
  • MichaelGMichaelG Posts: 89
    GA tickets were selling for $75 before it said sold out on Metro's website 2-3 weeks ago
    The place is tiny ... guessing it holds no more than 950. And now throw in all the Cubs & Hawks players going + VIP ... and then all the sponsors ... doubt there were 500 tix. available to General Public?

    I wonder how long I should sit in this queue or if it's just the site glitching.

    Nice! How long were you waiting in the screen

    "Due to high volume, we've placed you in the queue for tickets."

    Mine is still going on the screen hoping you were in there for a bit before them popping up?

    Also, is Ed going to do a legit performance or just a 45 min show like the who show a few months ago?
