    Soundgarden and side projects seem most likely. Short festival tour next summer in Europe.

    Keeping expectations low, but really hoping Eddie comes through Chicago for a solo show.

    Good point - Soundgarden next year would be awesome! Would love them to release a new LP.

    I had a lot of thoughts, talking with my touring buddies after Monday nights show, about how much longer we'll still be able to do this sort of thing with this band. How much more life does this band have left?

    Obviously, the recent shows have been on fire. I can say -- honesty, no bullshitting -- this is the best I've seen them play. They don't seem like a bunch of 50-year-old dudes up there.

    But they are.

    I've been thinking a lot about: what is Pearl Jam going to look like 10 years from now? What about after that? Do we have a shot at PJ45? These shows, probably more than any other, have made me really realize that our days with this band are numbered. We just don't know the number.

    The model here, I suppose, is Bruce. Dude is in his mid-60s and still putting out marathon, high-energy shows the likes of which we saw from Pearl Jam in the ballpark series. However, I don't think Bruce's songs require the kind of vocal stamina that does much of Pearl Jam's catalog. I thought Ed pulled off an incredibly plausible version of Blood at Wrigley. Will he still be able to do that at 65? Are those kind of songs going to go away at some point, just out of necessity? Will they start doing some mellower, acoustic-type tours?

    What have other aging hard rock acts done as they've entered their 60s? Ed could probably still play his solo shows for as long as he is alive. What about the rest of the guys?

    I just hope they keep playing these kind of shows while they are still able. I hope they have something scheduled, even if it's just 12 to 15 dates, every year from now until eternity. We need to be able to enjoy these guys for as long as we can. Pearl Jam is probably the longest long-term relationship I've ever had, aside from family. I'm not ready for Pearl Jam to be out of my life anytime soon.

    this is one of the reasons I made sure to hit Fenway. figured it might be once in a lifetime. i'm almost as old as these guys so not sure how much longer I can do it and god willing how long i will be able to do it. i saw 4 shows this tour: Greenville, 2 Philly and Fenway 2. it was magical. Surpassed the 2003 tour where i did 6 shows. maybe it's just getting older so i appreciate these 'moments' more. I hope to have many more of such moments with PJ but i guess nothing is guaranteed. Hope the guys stay healthy and come back rocking for a long long time. If not though i have memories that will last a life time.

    They don't have an overly rigorous touring schedule. They played 25 shows this year and 10 the year before. If they kept it up around 25 shows a year (even split into two short tours) that certainly seems plausible. There are plenty of older rock bands that still tour in later years, although some become simply a shadow of themselves, which pretty much sucks and is counterproductive. Even bands like The Who, Paul Mccartney, Rolling Stones - I'd rather not see PJ become like that. Yes, they still put on good shows, but they are basically cookie cutter shows and playing the exact same show every night - you only really need to see them once every couple of years.

    Part of the greatness of PJ is that they do change it up, and every show is worth hearing. But there are other examples like the Grateful Dead guys that do a tour or two a year, change there setlist up each night, and by all accounts still play great shows. That is the model I'd more like to see them follow. I mean in 10 years from now Blood and Leash might not have the same energy level as they do now, but I can easily see them still putting on great shows.

    I see an Ed solo tour. I know it's been since 2013, but I don't think a new album anytime soon.

  • Secretly put aside some money in anticipation for the Fall 2017 tour. Buy a van. Make sure my kids are ready to join me on the next summer tour by flooding them with PJ music every time we're in the car. Make sure my wife has no other choice than to join us on said summer tour.

    Maybe I'm just thinking small, but my immediate thoughts turned to the official bootlegs for the Wrigley shows. I've been to 7 shows total including these two shows at Wrigley, but two were PJ20 and another Wrigley in '13. I enjoy all the bootlegs I have, but my first show (Chicago 8/24/09 and Moline) are far and away my favorites having been in attendance. The two Wrigley shows are something I'd like to be able to relive. I know I can find audience recordings if I look for them, but really like the quality of the official boots.
  • Would really love a new album. I wish they weren't so far and few between.

    Just an observation but the 2016 boots sound so good. I was happy with the 2014 ones until I heard this years
  • dottlesdottles Posts: 9,068
    I would love to see them back in Europe next year, and I hope that seeing so many other artists playing over here has reassured them about the safety concerns.
    Maybe a London date (yes I am biased but it is still six hours from me) followed by mid/southern Germany, Italy, Croatia, Spain etc would be good. If it has to be festivals then so be it, but it would be great to see them mix them with some of their own shows or do festivals such as Pukkelpop in Belgium rather than Rock Werchter.
