Pearl Jam at Austin City Limits

by Kathy Davis on March 24, 2009

Terry Lickona, producer of  the Austin City Limits festival in Austin, TX recently participated in a chat at pbs.org, and added a little weight to the rumor of their appearance at the festival, which takes place October 2 -4, 2009.

Excerpt:

Lou, Arlington, VA: If you could have any artist on the show — dead or alive — who would it be and why?

Terry Lickona: Dead OR alive?? LOL…nobody has ever quite put the question that way. In the non-living category, I’d have to say that HANK WILLIAMS (the original, not Jr.) would be right up there. Among the living, the obvious names missing from our 35-year history include Springsteen and Dylan…not for lack of trying…but I’ve never been able to break the ice. There are so many classic acts, too numerous to mention, but it was a thrill last year to have REM on our stage, and we’re looking forward to another breakthrough this year with Pearl Jam…but don’t tell anybody;-)
