(INSPIRING 😭)
My first PJ concert after being a fan for 30 years!!! 
Met the kindest soul sitting beside me at the OKC concert. We struck it off like we had been friends for years. Talking all things #pearljam and what their songs meant to us. I mentioned to him I had already stood in line for 1/2 hour and opted for the  local OKC Tour Tshirt  and I should of gotten the other also  which read”never give up”. we talked about that shirt and how much depth and meaning it had for both of us. He gets up half way through the concert and is gone for a while and returns back and hands me that  tshirt  and says,”it’s your first #pearljam concert and it has to be special “ 
I was blown away, It actually made me cry! We never exchanged names, he said he doesn’t do social media, it was simply a random act of kindness. We will  never meet again but I’ll remember it forever! 
It’s so very shocking and inspiring in todays climate when you experience kindness, Be kind to people, All people! What an inspiration!
and thank you again if you happen to read this!!!

    Many great folks like that around here. It's different being a Pearl Jam fan. It just is.

    That’s great!  Honestly it’s one of my favorite parts about coming to Pearl Jam shows is all of the great fans. Are you from South Dakota, or the other fan?  Cuz I am, skipped OKC but in Denver now…

    SuperCoolNice experience op!
    ^I like that concept Rob.  @URthekey just hooked me up with NY Yankees shirt too. Good world when you focus on the nice stuff.

  • I have a story if anyone will listen that long. Haha
     Seriously  i had a moment in Hyde  park i will never ever forget.  A man ive never met or knew of  came up to me at the end with jeffs sweatband and handed it to me. 
    He is an Australian who isnt on social at all. He had been queuing  all tour with my dear friends and they had been speaking about me in the  queue.
    So Anthony was like a beautiful  angel. 
    I have now got his address and i plan to send him a gift  and a hand written letter like old times.
    Good people are out there.   And  i still believe at pearl jam there  is a very high percentage  of beautiful people.

    I have been to alot of shows but never been very close, and in Camden, one of the brothers who were right behind us all day in line handed me a Mike pic in the middle of the show. I burst into tears and kissed him on the cheek. I turned immediately into a 5 year old. Love all you guys.
  • I reckon giving picks to people  behind is one of the best feelings.  When you get more than one. Share . It feels great.

    And you’re right, what a great group of people at the show and on here as well! I just joined yesterday and already feel like family

    I love this. An angel gets their wings. For every story like this, 10 adults who exploit their child in GA for a tambourine should get shut out.
