Thread: Pearl Jam on Saturday?

  1. #1

    Default Pearl Jam on Saturday?

    Even though half the people on this board hate them, I think it would be a good way to mix up the headliners. I'll note a few things that make them a logical fit:

    1. With the Cure and Paul Mac headlining, Pearl Jam would be a good, harder "rock" headliner to vary things up.

    2. They are reissuing Ten in March, the beginning of a serial set of reissues leading up to their 20 year anniversary in 2011. Pearl Jam doing "Ten" in its entirety would be pretty cool.

    3. They have been working on a new album since December with a tentative release of Summer 2009.

    4. As everyone has heard, they were supposedly Paul's inspiration for doing Coachella in the first place.

    5. Neil Young is conspicuously absent, and there is a mutual lovefest between the two acts - maybe both could be added.

    6. The "tour" portion of their webpage is under construction.

    7. So, I randomly emailed the official website today asking if PJ was the surprise headliner for Saturday - their response was "we're sorry, but we cannot confirm anything at this time". Doesnt that seem like a strange response?

    I know Pearl Jam doesn't get a lot of love on these boards, but I'd be really happy with them headlining.

    Sounds like a typical form letter type response.

    im probably reading too much into it, i know. But it just seemed odd. The lineup's been announced - why not just say no.

    I would mind a little since I saw them at roo', I just don't see them headlining two major festivals in less than a year, but you never know. I am just hoping for someone else, since I already saw them but they are EPIC though
    it's better to live as if there are no "do-overs," so that you won't need one. I thought I'd share this with you, to work in the bits about fear, mistakes, and how precious today's opportunities are.

    I'd welcome it, but I picture them headlining Sasquatch more than I do Coachella.

    dont know about that, but it would definitely put it in contention. i have been waiting 10 years for Coachella to get PJ. that would be so amazing if they get added to sat!

    i would normally say no chance on this, but that email response give me hope. like he somebody said, why wouldnt they just say no, unless there are talks going on? i am now going to pray to a god that i dont believe exists for this to happen.
    Let's go on a livin' spree!

    I doubt it will happen, just because I somehow feel that it would have been hinted at somewhere (or someone would have found out something about this) over at the Pearl Jam message boards. They're a pretty obsessive and knowledgeable bunch over there.

    However, I will say this. I'm not going to Coachella this year. Times are tough, and I simply can't afford it. However, if Pearl Jam is added, I will find a way to be there. And they will blow everyone's face off.

    Pearl Jam shows are like a religious experience...if anyone has ever seen them you know what i'm talking about....even if you hate the band/or don't know any songs i still think you will find their shows pretty amazing....
    before the lineup was even announced i thought Pearl Jam made way more sense to headline Sunday than the Cure.....

    I admit I haven't heard a whole lot of Pearl Jam. I would fully support them at Coachella though.

    It doesn't seem very likely, but the Pearl Jam/Neil Young combo would be incredible. Pearl Jam has such a ridiculous live show, it's perfect for Coachella.

    PJ Harvey maybe!!!

    just kidding, I think it would be great if Pearl Jam were there...I think a lot of people around here would be surprised at how good they are live

    A little walk down memory lane .... this was the last time they played the polo grounds ...




    I love when Eddie proclaims, "your dirt is my fuckin' food" .... if you listen, you can hear Mike McCready do a couple strains of "Black Diamond" by Kiss.

    Which, I saw them do this year at MSG, with Ace Frehley ... (and Matt Cameron on vocals)

    Agreed, way better than the Cure. At least I enjoyed their live show way more, my favorite show of Bonnaroo last year.

    I fucking love this! It's because of Pearl Jam that we have so many shitty down-sydrome-rock bands out there. Pearl Jam needs to stay the fuck away from Coachella.
