PJ Live Hints and Rumors

by Kathy Davis on April 22, 2009

Many tidbits of information have floated to the surface recently regarding more potential live Pearl Jam in 2009.

 In a March interview on the “Ron and Don” show on Seattle’s 97.3 FM KIRO,  Mike McCready mentioned that Pearl Jam is doing a “little thing in the States,” and is looking to play South America in 2010.

According to a post on the Message Pit, Jeff spoke to Missoula, Montana  radio station The Trail 103.3 on Friday April 17th and mentioned that the band are planning a tour that will happen in 2009 that includes “the west , the south, and some dates in Europe”.  Jeff further went on to say that they will know  the new album release date by May 1st, and like Mike said the record is “halfway done”.  Jeff also mentioned that his favorite venues: the Gorge, Washington Grizzly stadium (Missoula) and the coliseum in Verona, Italy - he said was spectacular and that he hopes it doesn’t rain “next time”.

Giving more credence to possible European Dates, eagle-eared PJ Fan Alex from the Bugs message board noted several mentions of a potential Berlin, Germany show at the Wuhlheide venue this summer on Berlin’s Radio Eins.  According to Alex, it was first mentioned by host Helmut Heimann in his two hour “Ten Deluxe”-special two weeks ago and mentioned again this Monday by well known host Anja Caspary.

Finally, according to this Italian newspaper, an Italian music promoter has been in contact with FestaReggio, a late August/Early September entertainment festival in the northern Italian town of Reggio Emilia and are possibly in talks with many artists, Pearl Jam included, to perform at the Campovolo venue.   from Bugs and Message Pit posts
