Pearl Jam launch Instant Classic bootleg series

Pearl Jam have launched a new series of live recordings under the title, “Instant Classic.”

On September 30th, Pearl Jam returned for the first time in seven years to Missoula, MT to play a show. This energetic performance was in support of long-time friend Senator Jon Tester and was greeted with great enthusiasm by the Adams Center's sell-out crowd.

Shortly after finishing the show, the band declared it an "Instant Classic" and asked that it be made available quickly to the fans and for a limited time at a special price.

Starting on November 6th and ending November 13th, Pearl Jam's 2012 Missoula bootleg will be available for sale in MP3 format only for $4.99 at (normally $9.99). During this same timeframe, the proceeds of sales of this show will be donated to The Poverello Centerin Missoula.

After November 13th, all formats (MP3, Flac, FLAC-HD and CD) will be available at normal prices.

Every so often, performances like this stand out immediately as "one for the books" in the band's eyes. When they do, these "Instant Classics" will continue to be made available with this special offer.

Pearl Jam have been working on and off on a new album; no release date is set for the as yet untitled follow up to 2009's "Backspacer," but guitarist Stone Gossard told Billboard earlier this year that the band hopes it will be out in the first half of 2013, "if all goes according to plan."
