Top Ten Pearl Jam Moments of 2017, #3

Let's Play Two

Back in July, fans started to notice an interesting item on Amazon, some sort of Live at Wrigley Field item.  Was it a boxed set?  A film?  A bootleg?

It turns out, it was everything.  Pearl Jam hit theaters in October with Danny Clinch's film, Let's Play Two featuring footage shot over the course of Pearl Jam's two-night stand at Wrigley Field in 2016.  Gorgeously cut between footage of performances, interviews with the band members (mostly Ed), and footage of the Cubs' 2016 World Series win, Let's Play Two was a must-see moment of the year.

And Pearl Jam made it easy.  Let's Play Two was released in theaters all over the world, played on FSN, streamed on Amazon, and was finally released as DVD or BluRay.  You can even relive the music with the soundtrack on CD or vinyl or with either of the two bootlegs from 2016, which were finally released once the movie's press junket had run its course.

There are some that say this movie was so great, that it should hit #1.  They're not wrong, but we have other ideas.  Come back and check out our Top Two choices starting on Wednesday, December 27th.
