    If PJ doesn't tour Australia in 2020 .. I will be selling all my music and merch and leaving the Ten Club.  They seem happy to travel all the way to Europe on a regular basis, so why not Australia?  

    Oh and please sign the petition if you want an Australia/New Zealand tour in 2020.

    Totally understandable leaving the club as the touring has drastically slowed down but the music is still great, I'd keep that.

    Note that they have barely traveled anywhere as a band in their home country recently, traveling to 3 US cities over what appears to be a 40 month period 9/16-12/19. The population of the USA to other countries...the northeast has more population than Canada and Australia combined. And we draw tons of out of town fans when they play here. Tickets are impossible.  They could never play enough shows here.

    Europe has had PLENTY.

    I dont get EV doing almost the same solo tour he just did in 2017 while not doing a full states tour in a long time. While leaving the band on the shelf 33 of the past 36 months while putting the forthcoming album on hold yet again. 

    Oh well, Tool made its fans wait 13 years and it's almost here.

    Today Bruce said that he and the E Street Band would be recording a new record in the fall and touring next year when it’s finished. It’s just that easy to keep your fans in the know.
    True.  But he already wrote the record.  They just need to record it.  He runs that show and it’s his way or the highway.  I don’t think Pearl Jam makes a record the same way as Bruce and the E Street Band.  Getting 5 people on the same page might be more of a challenge. 
    You are saying they need someone in the band who is like a Boss? Didn't Springsteen release a new album last week?
    While Ed is clearly the head guy, the rest of the band still seems to have a big say in things.  I don’t think the band could ever function like the E Street Band.  Bruce calls the shots and everyone else has to follow along.  I don’t think it’s like that in Pearl Jam even if Ed is the top dog.  I think the other guys still have a big say in their plans.  Plus Bruce will be 70 this year and all his kids are grown.  He has less family matters tying him down. 
    Was Bruce not playing and making music 15 years ago when he had younger kids? Of course he was. Don't blame kids on inactivity of the band.
    He went a decade without playing with the e street band though. As long as these guys get along they will always come back together. Whether it’s s year, two years or five. PJ will be back on a big way at some point. Patience my friends

    i didn't now that stone didn't come out for the final bow in chicago. that is not a good sign. it will happen when ed wants it to happen. i know what i saw in 2006 in pittsburgh. there was no feeling of togetherness at the hotel. the band went in its own van , ed went separately. yes i know its a long time ago but i think there is an undercurrent at work here. bands have ups and downs. personal relationships have ups and downs. this may be one of those times . who knows. on stage it may still work, but apart one has to want to get together and be together. i just don't feel it right now.

    PJ doesn't play a lot of places.  I don't think I could give up my favourite music, but given there are far more places on Earth they don't play than play, I wouldn't take it too personally.

    Not that it will happen, but damn a modern unplugged tour/album would be amazing at this point. Seems easier to do garage style and just jam in small venues without the bells and whistles.  Sets could get interesting.. alot changed since MTV unplugged.

    A prelude to the new material!

    If ed released solo material this would be an apt comparison. He doesn't. 1 song in 6 years?

    Any west coast tour will almost certainly accompany east coast and/or other parts of the country.

    If PJ doesn't tour Australia in 2020 .. I will be selling all my music and merch and leaving the Ten Club.  They seem happy to travel all the way to Europe on a regular basis, so why not Australia?  

    Oh and please sign the petition if you want an Australia/New Zealand tour in 2020.

    Totally understandable leaving the club as the touring has drastically slowed down but the music is still great, I'd keep that.

    Note that they have barely traveled anywhere as a band in their home country recently, traveling to 3 US cities over what appears to be a 40 month period 9/16-12/19. The population of the USA to other countries...the northeast has more population than Canada and Australia combined. And we draw tons of out of town fans when they play here. Tickets are impossible.  They could never play enough shows here.

    Not sure I'd call Can't Deny Me 'great'.

    I think the original poster said that if they dont tour, then they will be selling all their music and merch.  And the response basically was "dont sell your music, keep that"

    I would. I actually listen to it by choice, which I can only say for 4 songs off LB (Pendulum, Getaway, Sirens, Yellow Moon).  I love the sentiment (probably helps) and melody of Cant Deny Me.

    Someone else posted this but I'll echo it. The primary benefit of Ten Club membership is access to tickets. At some point there are only so many bootlegs and black t-shirts that one needs, you know? So if the band isn't going to tour for a year or more then they should give us the option of putting our memberships into hibernation. Just say, 'no tour in 2019 but you can maintain your membership for $10 and you'll get a bootleg but not shirt.' At a minimum they should do this for people living in Asia/Australia where the band hasn't appeared in 5 years. 

    I don't mind them not touring. It is a free world and they can do what they want. (I also saw McCready play at the Showbox and that was fun. And I saw Ed at the grocery store a few months ago. So it isn't like I haven't seen them. I kid.) But I do mind paying for a benefit that I don't receive. If they aren't going to tour then let us all save a few bucks.

    Is this really an argument over $10/year?  Isn't "Digital" $20, and you're saying it should be $10 instead?
    For a band the size of PJ, $20/year for the fan club is nothing.

    I think it's not so much about money as it is about, how big of a burden would it be to communicate with these loyal fans? It's doable. We will continue to pump cash into what's become a merchandise operation but it would be so noble to give some heads up to what's going on, what's coming up and so on. It's a given they don't have to, but it's not an insane request.
