Pearl Jam to host exhibit during Seattle summer shows

Pearl Jam and The Museum Of Pop Culture (MoPOP) will host an exhibit of the band’s history in sync with the group’s shows in their hometown of Seattle, WA this summer.

Pearl Jam will begin a brief series of US stadium concerts at Seattle’s Safeco Field on August 8 and 10.

Billed as “The Home Shows”, the concerts will see the band pledge a minimum of $1 million toward local homelessness initiatives while challenging everyone to join them towards raising a minimum of $10 million for the cause.

The “Pearl Jam: Home & Away” event at MoPOP will showcase 28 years of memorabilia from the band’s warehouse, featuring personal instruments, equipment, stage props, original typewritten lyrics and notebooks, original poster and album art and set lists.

Fans will be able to step inside a piece of Pearl Jam history in a photo op featuring the towering letters from the front of their 1991 album debut album, “Ten.”

The Ten Club is hosting an exclusive screening party at MoPOP on August 9; a ticket drawing is being held for eligible members for a chance to purchase a pair of tickets to this event.

“Pearl Jam: Home & Away” will open to the public on August 11.

Following the Seattle shows, the band will perform at Missoula, MT’s Washington-Grizzly Stadium on August 13, as well as two nights at Chicago’s Wrigley Field (Aug 18 & 20) and a pair at Boston’s Fenway Park (Sep 2 & 4).

Pearl Jam will begin a European tour in Amsterdam on June 12.
