Pearl Jam Fan taking initiative

Crowdfunding: The proliferation of the internet, social media, and e-commerce have culminated into an amazing opportunity for consumers to put their money where their mouth is. Today, we are seeing movies get made, products get launched, and causes being supported in small increments by thousands of people who add up to make a difference. Why not try this for concerts?
   
The Foo Fighters helped to blaze the trail when they played Richmond, Virginia as a result of a crowdfund campaign (learn more).  Now, Pearl Jam fan Dan Sheffer has taken the initiative and put it out there to PJ fans to support an initiative to bring Pearl Jam to his neck of the woods.  

Initial chatter has been overwhelmingly positive and supportive from the fan base.  Some have concerns that, if successful, the band would be put into an "awkward" position of having to say yes.  Not sure I've ever heard of a band who says no to a sold out arena of fans who self funded an event because they are so passionate about their music; but if you think Pearl Jam has an issue with peer pressure I guess that would make sense?...

Anyway, with Ticketmaster fees and a variety of other challenges, crowdfunding might be the way of the future for concerts!  Here's all of the info from the site but be sure to head over to this link to contribute.  An $80 donation gets you a ticket if it happens!

"We are raising funds for a fan funded PJ show(s) at Forest Hills Tennis Center. A historic venue in Queens, NY, this would be a unforgettable evening(s) for the band, the fans, the crew and NYC. We have the support of several PJ groups on FB and Twitter and will give our proposal to Pearl Jam management no later than 1/2015.
We will be contacting the press and local politicians to make this happen. If The Beatles, The Who and Dylan can play Forest Hills why not add legendary Pearl Jam to the mix?

Why not try? I'm sure my fellow 10 clubbers would agree! Think of it as PJ25!
This is an extremely unique, historic venue and we think that the band would love playing here and it will be a show to tell future generations. We encourage all feedback and can use all the help we can get to make this a reality! We would also like to donate some of the proceeds to EB research.

Forest Hills is a historic venue, a great place to live, it deserves to be put on the map again. Pearl Jam is the best band on the planet to do it!
The plan is simple Pearl Jam fans. If we get the numbers , let's talk to the band and see what we can do. Worst case is that they say no.

JUST REMEMBER WE ALL BELIEVE!!!!!
LET'S MAKE HISTORY!


FAQ's:
When is my card charged?
If the project you're backing is successfully funded, your card will be charged when the project reaches its funding deadline. If the project does not reach its funding goal, your card is never charged.

Can I cancel a pledge?

What if the band don't agree to the crowd funded Show?
We will cancel the project immediately, no credit/debit cards will be charged -

What is there to lose? - Nothing!
This is an all or nothing project, it either happens or it doesn't.

What if the band do agree to a crowd funded show?
We will work closely with the management company to make sure everything is arranged and you don't have to worry about a thing. As long as they have said yes, you have a ticket - the date will be confirmed in due course.
When will I know the date of the concert?
Once the project is successful, all further information will be released in due course. You will have secured your ticket so just sit back and relax. If you are unable to make the arranged date, let us know and we will resell your ticket at face value.
What can I expect from the concert if it is successful?
PJ Live in a historic venue! I don't think we need to explain what that could mean!
Why Forest Hills?
Forest Hills offers many conveniences and is extremely close to all mass transportation. It is in a safe amazing area that looks like London England! The venue is historic and some of the bands heroes have played there! This could be amazing! It's time to put this place back on the map as a premier venue. It has gone in disrepair for far too long.
We want PJ, we want another historic destination show, we want it soon!
Where are my seats?
We will be doing tickets in a lottery. 10C or otherwise. Senority does not apply, we are all fans here!"

Pearl Jam writes and performs a new song in Moline

Not that Moline needs any more hype than, "they played No Code front to freakin back live!" but here's another gem that happened.  Eddie Vedder cranked out an original song ten minutes before the show and performed it live! What a night...

Pearl Jam - Climbing, stage diving, crowd surfing...



Among the million reasons we love Pearl Jam, these crazy antics are at the top of the list.  Although the boys have tempered a bit in recent years, the spirit and excitement of their live shows is better than ever.  We're less than a week away from the 2014 Fall tour.  I hope to see you on the road!
