Top Ten Pearl Jam Moments of 2015: #7-5

#7 Paying Tribute

With Pearl Jam touring so little this year, the band was able to focus some of their love for other projects.  This year, that seemed to mean paying tribute to some amazing musicians.

In January, Mike McCready joined the Seattle Symphony to play songs by Mad Season and Temple of the Dog.  At various points during the performance Mike was joined by Barrett Martin, Duff McKagan, Chris Cornell, Matt Cameron, Jeff Ament, Stone Gossard, and other.  The performance was so epic that later this year it was made available on CD and LP.

In May, Ed took the stage with Pete Townshend to pay tribute to The Who and raise funds for Townshend's Cancer Foundation.

And finally, in August, Mike stepped on top of Pike Place Market with Duff McKagan, Barrett Martin, and Mark Arm for a free show of songs by Iggy and The Stooges that celebrated the new home of KEXP.

#6 Push Me, Pull Me: Pearl Jam and the Art of the Screen Printed Poster

In May, Pearl Jam and the Experience Music Project (EMP) Museum coordinated to open a huge poster display at the Seattle-Tacoma Airport.  Fans on the road could breeze by and enjoy the history of Pearl Jam's relationship with more than 30 artists including the Ames Bros., Brad Klausen, Munk One, and Ward Sutton.

The official press release said "these myriad posters illustrate some of Pearl Jam’s core artistic values: the desire to foster a climate of creativity, to act as a patron for the other artists, and to provide comment and critique on society and humanity."

#5 Aladdin Theater, Las Vegas, 1993

In 2006, Pearl Jam released their first ever Vault release, Las Vegas 1993, an action that since has been erased from the history books by the powers that be.  The digital download has not been available to fans since.

Pearl Jam made good on this slight this past May by release "Vault Release #5."  Fan Club members who were swift were able to get a two-disc vinyl collection.  That vinyl is no longer available, but fans can still purchase a CD or digital release of this classic show at Aladdin Theater on November 30th, 1993.
