If the pandemic has changed your Labor Day weekend plans, Pearl Jam is happy to provide your entertainment.
Starting September 4 at 8PM ET, fans will be able to watch a replay of Pearl Jam’s hometown concert from Seattle’s Safeco Field. The concert took place on August 8, 2018 and was the first of two sold out concerts billed as “The Home Shows.”
The stream will be available as a pay-per-view broadcast on Nugs.net and represents the first time the show will be webcast in its entirety.
The 33-song set saw the band cover songs from Neil Young, Little Steven, The White Stripes, Brandi Carlile, Pink Floyd, and The Beatles.
Their set also featured a mix of Pearl Jam classics, rarities, and an appearance from fellow Seattle musician Brandi Carlile on the cover of her song “Again Today.”
Pearl Jam joined artists like Green Day, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards of The Rolling Stones and Aerosmith in signing an open letter asking that political campaigns seek consent from recording artists and songwriters before using their music.
"This is not a new problem or a partisan one," the letter reads.
"More importantly, falsely implying support or endorsement from an artist or songwriter is dishonest and immoral. It undermines the campaign process, confuses the voting public, and ultimately distorts elections. It should be anathema to any honest candidate to play off this kind of uncertainty or falsely leave the impression of an artist's or songwriter's support."
The letter seeks to have clear policies established to gain consent from artists before using their music for political or campaign purposes.
