Pearl Jam Offers Double Disc Acoustic Set Next Month





Live At Benaroya Hall October 22. 2003, a double disc live CD from Pearl Jam, will be available next month through a one-off distribution deal with BMG, as the band ended their longtime relationship with Epic last fall. The 24-track CD captures an acoustic set the band performed at the Seattle venue in association with the local aid organization Youthcare. According to Billboard, a special edition of the album, featuring a poster of the band will be available for pre-order via the band's website on June 21. A four-LP boxed set edition of the concert will also be available exclusively through pearljam.com. Fans will be happy to hear that the band might possibly play some fall shows in swing states leading up to the presidential election, but while they actively campaigned for Ralph Nader in 2000, Pearl Jam will not be playing any fund raisers on his behalf this time around.


"This was one of those special shows," Pearl Jam manager Kelly Curtis told Billboard, speaking of the decision to make the Benaroya Hall concert available to fans. "But because it was not part of the 2003 tour bootleg series and fans were asking for it, and because of the unique nature of the performance itself -- it being the band's first full length acoustic show -- it felt like a show we should give fans the chance to own."
