Pearl Jam Will Be Making a Special Announcement
Pearl Jam are teasing an upcoming “special announcement” across all of their social media accounts. Take a look at their Twitter post below. As the caption notes, we’ll just have to stay tuned as to what this all could mean, but many are already speculating an upcoming U.S. tour. Of course, the subway-style photo has others believing the announcement will be a special New York City concert:
However, the announcement probably won’t appease the fans that raised $140,000 in a crowdfunding campaign aimed at persuading the Seattle alt-rockers to play a concert at Forest Hills Stadium in Queens. The band’s manager, Kelly Curtis, recently said it’s “unlikely to happen.”
“We love the passion and enthusiasm of the fans who have spearheaded Pearl Jam Crowdfund efforts,” Curtis said in an interview with the Village Voice. “However, with more and more of these crowdfunded show proposals cropping up, we want to be clear before fans invest their earned money into these efforts that they are unlikely to happen."
“The band’s shows are booked through their management and touring agents,” she added. “A lot goes into scheduling, routing, producing and promoting safe and successful shows for our fans. We will continue to rely on our experts in the field to ensure this remains the case for the band’s future tours."
