Eddie Vedder single to be released with Chicago Cubs ticket package

Eddie Vedder will release a 7” vinyl single of “All The Way” as part of a ticket package for the upcoming July 6 Chicago Cubs home game at Wrigley Field against the Cincinnati Reds.

Fans who purchase the Vinyl Record Ticket Package for the event will receive a limited-edition, 7-inch vinyl record featuring Vedder’s ode to his favorite baseball team along with Steve Goodman's "Go, Cubs, Go."

Originally released in 2008, the song looks forward to the Cubs' next World Series victory following a century-long drought, which eventually ended when the team won the championship in 2016.

Vedder first performed “All The Way” during a 2007 solo show at the Vic Theatre in Chicago; he’s played it in the city several times since on his own and during Pearl Jam’s 2013 and 2016 gigs at Wrigley Field while also appearing on the group’s 2017 “Let’s Play Two” live package.

The rocker made headlines this week when Pearl Jam were forced to postpone a June 19 concert at London’s O2 Arena after he lost his voice.

"Pearl Jam are very sorry to announce that they will be unable to perform tonight's show at the O2 Arena in London," posted the group on social media. "The band is working on rescheduling the concert date for mid-July. Singer Eddie Vedder has completely lost his voice. He is on vocal rest for the next few days in an effort to heal and perform the remainder of the tour dates. It's the first time ever having to postpone a show for this reason.

“The band is expected to resume their tour on Friday, June 22 in Milan.”

The London show postponement comes during the second week of the European leg of the Seattle group’s Live 2018 Tour, which opened with the first of two sold-out shows at the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam on June 12.
