"That band/fan synergy was at maximum power Friday during a generous two-hour gig where 1,000 lucky fans got to road test much of the Seattle group's new, self-titled record along with some choice material from the PJ back catalog." [NY Post]
"With arms waving and voices raised, a packed crowd joined Eddie Vedder singing, 'Oh, oh, I'm still alive' at Irving Plaza on Friday night. Mr. Vedder's band, Pearl Jam, is the lone survivor among Seattle's multimillion-selling grunge bands of the early 1990's, and it has held onto its audience in the most old-fashioned way, through constant touring. Its Irving Plaza show was a rare break from an international circuit of arenas and stadiums." [NY Times]
"The venue was tight and tiny. Reminiscent of the early days when Pearl Jam packed small clubs like CBGB’s and everyone in the crowd was warring for centimeters.......Drew Barrymore, Fabrizio Moretti, Flea, Mary-Kate Olsen, Giselle Bundchen, Tim Robbins, Susan Saradon, the lead singer from Anthrax, and Ed’s wife (Jill) and daughter (Olivia) were all there." [Gremmie] (the guys who waited in line for 35 hours)
"I had never actually seen someone leap off the balcony at irving. That was awesome." [Jeddeth]
My friend Nick (the one who waited for 24 hours) took the pics you see below...
"These gents were the first three." [Gremmie.net documented 35 hours in line]
I just spoke to someone on line to get Pearl Jam tickets outside Tower Records (4th & Broadway). He's got 12 hours to go. He's been there for 12 hours already. The first pair of people got there Thursday night. Right now (Monday @ noon) there's an estimated 300 people waiting, and Tower supposedly has 450 tickets total (though they won't tell anyone how many there actually are).
Numbered wristbands were given out to those already there. It guarantees they won't lose their place in line, BUT Tower is taking roll call once an hour. If you happen not to be on line when they call your number...they cross you off. The reason (they're giving): "Pearl Jam wants you to earn your ticket".
