Hair metal was dead. Everybody knew it. But what would replace it? What would be the next step in rock n' roll? Would it
be an even more aggrandized ego fest? Would it be a deliberate regression to rock's formative years? Would it splinter into
various sub genres and remain fractured forever? Or would a handful of Seattle bands grab the reins and steer rock into new
territory that honored its past by doing away with the sartorial splendor and flash and focusing on the art? It was the last
that proved to be true, and it wouldn't have happened without Pearl Jam. Pioneers, visionaries and arguably the most influential
band still making music, Pearl Jam is a font of musical genius, and the opportunity to see them live isn't to be missed. Head
over to StubHub to purchase Pearl Jam concert tickets
to see these living legends live!
Can't find a better band! Try. Go on and try to find a better, more lasting and iconic rock band today than Pearl Jam.
You can't, and everyone knows it. They recently sold out Chicago's Wrigley Field faster than any band in history, and that's
incredibly impressive given Pearl Jam has been on the music scene for more than two decades. Most bands don't last half that
long, petering out after their third album and fading from existence. But not Pearl Jam. These guys don't know anything but
making hits and selling out concerts, and they show no signs of slowing down!
What's kept Pearl Jam so en vogue for more than 20 years is really quite simple. Eddie Vedder and the gang don't think
it's anything innovative and groundbreaking. To them, it's just the way they do business. Other bands tend to flop after a
few years because they force change, forcing a sound that tries too hard to be edgy and current and in the process sounds
hollow and falls flat. Pearl Jam didn't bother with that. They just kept right on making the music they wanted to make, regardless
of whatever else was going on in music and trending, and it's that dedication to their music and their fidelity to their sound
that has allowed them to remain so essential to the rock experience.
Nirvana was a seismic shift, a realignment in the rock world that spawned many, many imitators. But Pearl Jam wasn't one
of those copiers. They' been around for a few years making alternative music but without the attention Nirvana was drawing.
Perhaps they were too far ahead of their time. Audiences weren't ready for their sound until a few years later, but once Pearl
Jam's star was noticed, it took off like a rocket and hasn't stopped since. While Nirvana and other bands of that ilk were
cultural phenomena, Pearl Jam was more of an everyman's band, and that mass appeal and magnetism continues today.
Equally comfortable playing a sold-out arena and an intimate underground nightclub, Pearl Jam is a band's band. They don't
care about the 14 Grammy nominations. They don't care about the magazine covers. They don't care about being major rock stars.
They only care about making good music, which is to say they care about their fans, because if they didn't they'd churn out
the same old stuff and slowly fade away. Go to StubHub to get your rock
tickets to see Pearl Jam live and see firsthand why these guys never fail to deliver!
