Leaving Here...U.S.A. to Europe...

Pearl Jam's leavin' here but going where? Europe! They'll be seeing four leaf clovers, leprechauns and the Blarney Stone first as they rock next in Cork, Ireland on October 24th and then throughout Europe. Last stops are in Lisbon, Portugal on the 24 & 25th of November. Bring back some Pao Doce, guys!

Hey Jammers - Have You Heard The News?

The Berlin concert is going to be broadcast around the world on November 3rd. It will be available to any radio station that wants to pick up those jammy waves so check with your local stations. The rumors are flying but it won't be simulcast on PBS. Our tape recorders are already set to go.

Stone Gossard's guitar was stolen from the stage in Ft. Lauderdale and it has since been recovered and returned to him. We're biting our tongues about how we feel about someone who would steal from Pearl Jam...no we're not. They suck.

Music, Of Course...

We're told that a new single for Hail, Hail will have a song named, Black, Red, Yellow as the b-side to be released in Europe...not sure about the U.S. yet. We'll let you know. The release date should be coming soon. In answer to some other questions, they say they will be releasing a live album someday -- but the home video is coming along s l o w l y... .

Seasons Change...

It looks like Pearl Jam's spring tour of the U.S. has been moved to sometime around summer. March still holds possibilities for Australia and New Zealand. It's still too early to get anything firm. More information should surface once Pearl Jam gets back from their current tour.
