Two thirds of TwoFeetThick.com were in Chicago for a few days hanging out and OH YEAH seeing Pearl Jam (!), hence the delay in updating TFT. We’ll catch up after we get home, honest! It was incredible seeing old friends and family and seeing the boys make amazing music yet again. The old TFT Kathy review treatment will be coming down the pike soon; in the meantime, here’s the Cameron Crowe-directed video for “The Fixer” that has hit the airwaves, also reported by the most excellent PearlJamOnline.it and PearlJam.com (this copy was nabbed elsewhere). The video quality isn’t 100%, but it’s nice to watch:
And here is Jessica’s excellent review of Chicago night one from Billboard.com! A teaser snippet:
On this cool August Sunday night (Aug. 23), it only took three songs for Vedder to have the sold-out United Center’s 21,000 fans roaring with ‘welcome back’ approval. After unleashing “Why Go?,” from PJ’s recently reissued 1991 debut “Ten,” Vedder quipped, “Why go home? I am home!” Echoes of rock flick “Almost Famous” aside, the emotional yet raucous, 28-song rollercoaster of a set not only marked Vedder’s return to Chicago, but the band’s first U.S. show in more than a year.
Please note the archival photo credit that accompanies the Billboard article. Tee hee! Rock.
