A user in Pearl Jam forum recently reported that the band has shows lined up in North America in April and May next year.
The quote noted, “PJ has shows scheduled in NA in April and May next year. I don’t have any more details than that, I don’t know what part of North America or how many shows or anything, but it correlates with what Krist Novoselic said and it’s just a little bit more specific!”
Meanwhile, Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder recently hung out at Washington Square Park and wound up rocking out with the place’s regular crew of guitar players. It happened two Sundays ago on Oct. 5 around 7 p.m. Bill Warren a.k.a. Abe Lincoln tipped the newspaper off. He said he got there toward the end of things but heard the whole story.
Basically, Vedder and his wife strolled by and saw some of the usual veteran “park jammers,” as they call themselves — René Logeais, Doc Will and Big Mike — playing Neil Young songs.
At first, the Pearl Jam front man just hung back and dug the tunes. But the “Even Flow” belter eventually borrowed a guitar and flowed right into one of his signature songs, “Better Man,” with them.
Although the video was naturally taken, the Washington Square jammers promised that none would be posted. The Village Sun reported that Logeais how it all went down.
