What Pearl Jam is Planning Next
2011 is halfway over but looks like Pearl Jam is just starting to get geared up as if it’s the New Year. The band is getting ready for two major projects here at home and the other, out of the country in South and Central America.
First up, the premiere of a new documentary, directed by none other than “Almost Famous” director, Cameron Crowe. Titled, ” Pearl Jam Twenty”, it celebrates their twenty years together as a band since their first official performance as Mookie Blaylock at the Off Ramp Caf in Seattle back October 1990. Crowe gathers together from 1200 hours of rare footage plus 24 hours of new recently shot interviews to give a candid, definitive look at Pearl Jam’s remarkable and legendary career. “Pearl Jam Twenty” is set to premier this September as well as on PBS, announcing they will broadcast it in October as part of its “American Masters” series.
Next on Pearl Jam’s agenda is the announcement of their South and Central American tour. The band will be stopping in the cities of Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Peru, Costa Rica, and Mexico. What a way to round up a busy year for a band that has stayed relevant, true to their music and fans.
