Pearl Jam to Play Green in … China?

by John Reynolds on January 13, 2010

The Green Gossip website (just how many green gossip sites are there?) is reporting that China is in discussions with Pearl Jam and other acts to perform at a free concert April 17th, 2010 which is the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day.

Organizers have already signed up such acts as the Black Eyed Peas, Aerosmith, and legendary Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page — with others like Pearl Jam, Lady Gaga, Green Day, and 50 Cent also in discussions to perform.

Of course, this may never happen, but the possibility of it is certainly interesting. We also particularly like the last line of the article:

Organizers are hoping more than 100,000 people attend the event. Hopefully, most of them won’t choke on Beijing’s air pollution in the process.
