PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’m always amused that despite how long I have been listening to Pearl Jam, which is pretty much from the beginning as a matter of fact, that I have never, ever caught them in concert. With the band playing two shows at the famed MSG in the Spring, I am going to try and cross that item off of my musical bucket list. Their sound has remained among my favorites from the era that they first came upon our scene. What do you readers think about this tour announcement? Is Pearl Jam a group that you are interested in seeing? Let me know in the comments section below.
