Honor the teams in Rio with Olympic Platinum in Fenway!?!?

It's been brought to my attention that the Olympic opening ceremony is the same night as our favorite band's Fenway debut on August 5th. What better way to honor the teams from around the globe than with the live debut of Olympic Platinum?

    Red Mosquito would probably be more appropriate given the conditions in Rio.

    A live version of this song would kill the crowd. Its a pretty bad song imo and I can only say that a couple of times when it comes to Pearl Jam.

    Would be a slight risk, but they did Bugs at Wrigley and that went fine. Plus a field full of 10cers would love the shock of hearing it

    Lol, it would more be dissing the teams than honouring them, but it would be pretty funny if they played it.

    And so you see, I have come to doubt
    All that I once held as true
    I stand alone without beliefs
    The only truth I know is you.

    I've been on the boards since 2000...This is the first ever request I've seen for Olympic Platinum.

    Not a fan of the song....but if they were to ever play that song live....you couldn't ask for a better time.

    Would be fun to see. The crowd will be just fine when the second encore hits and they hear Black, Jeremy, Betterman, Alive, RITFW and Ledbetter.
