Pearl Jam to Livestream Night Two of 2018’s Seattle ‘Home Shows’
Pearl Jam will livestream (a digital "Even Flow", if you will) its August 10th, 2018 hometown concert from Seattle’s Safeco Field as part of its latest pay-per-view streaming event via nugs.net. According to Gratefulweb.com, the band decided to run the shows between February 12th and 16th due to fan requests following last August's screening of Night One of the band's Seattle gigs. The two "home shows" raised over $11 million to combat homelessness in the greater Puget Sound area.
According to the announcement: “The stream will feature the 37-song set, mixed in stereo and 5.1 digital surround sound by Pearl Jam producer, Josh Evans. This never-seen-before full-color footage was captured using multiple HD cameras by touring video director Blue Leach and edited by Pearl Jam archivist Kevin Shuss."
Prior to the August 2020 livestream of Night One of the Seattle shows, Nugs founder and CEO Brad Serling said in a statement: "We’ve worked with Pearl Jam for 20 years, and while we miss seeing them on stage, the archive of more than 400 performances dating all the way back to 1993 has helped fans fill the void. Streaming this incredible 2018 show from their hometown of Seattle is a ray of sunshine for these times."
Pearl Jam drummer Matt Cameron has said that he and his fellow musicians have and always will remain loyal to Seattle and its music scene: "We started out very humbly here in the Northwest, and I don't think we've ever really gone too far from those sort of ideals, which were real do-it-yourself, '80s underground ideals."
Go here to buy into it.
