Pearl Jam – South American Tour Likely

by Kathy Davis on June 5, 2010

WELLLLLL NOWWWWW …South American Pearl Jam fans – get ready for Pearl Jam!  Last week an older news item was again re-iterated by a Peruvian concert promoter, according to this post from Living  In Peru:

US mythical grunge band is likely to  join the long list of important rock bands that have played in Lima as Peruvian entrepreneurs are interested in bringing them.

According to Estefano Arfinengo, businessman of Music Maker event promoter, “the band Pearl Jam has put off their tour in Latin America until 2011, and there are three entrepreneurs who are negotiating their presence in our country”.

Old news, you say? Well, add to this a juicy little tweet-style post from Colorado Springs, Colorado Gazette newspaper’s Section Editor Dena Rosenberry, who posted to the publication’s “Out There” blog – a blog that focuses on outdoor living and activities.  Here’s a re-post of the item entitled “Helping Eddie Vedder”:

Got a tweet from Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam (no, not direct). He’s looking for good spots to ski/ride in South America in coming months.  Apparently the/they’ll be playing down there and he expects to have some “down time.”

Respond here or log onto twitter and send a note to eddievedder.  No finder’s fee in this, just rider helping rider.

Well whenever the “coming months” are, I for one have never been to South America, and I do have a passport sorely in need of more stamps.  Pearl Jam in South America? Bueno doesn’t even begin to cover it.

Rock! And rock some more!
