Welcome to the
Pearl Jam Rumor Pit
Issue #60 - August 11, 2005
Hey Jammers! This newsletter was created as a direct link to the fans. If you would like to ask a question about Pearl Jam, please direct your questions (not fan club issues) to DigitalKat@aol.com or OfTheSea@aol.com. We're off now...into the Pit!
The Seventh Sense
In an eerie whisper, "We see rockin' people..." They're partying in the venue parking lots, dancing in the Ten Club will-call line, and jammin' out at the shows. What shows? The Gorge show, the Missoula benefit, the Canadian tour, opening for the Rolling Stones in Pittsburgh, the shows in Atlantic City at the Borgata and the Philly show are all just around the corner. So while we all eagerly await the new studio album news and the tour news that will follow (bootleg news is almost ready!), we're passing along some wee reminders along with a few answers to some questions we've been receiving.
Other Album News...
Pearl Jam's in-store performance at Easy Street Records in Seattle will be released on CD through selected independent record stores. There is no release date yet, but we'll keep you posted.
