Pearl Jam’s 2016 show at Chicago’s Wrigley Field will be broadcast May 9 as the first episode in a new AXS TV limited-edition concert series spotlighting rock bands from the 1990s.

“Long Live The 90s” will see the Seattle band’s “Let’s Play Two” live video kick off the seven show run; set amidst the backdrop of the Cubs’ historic 2016 season, the project details the unique relationship between the band, the team, and the city, spurred by hometown hero Eddie Vedder.

AXS TV’s Sunday night series will continue with full concert videos from Garbage, Stone Temple Pilots, Jane’s Addiction, Rage Against The Machine and The Black Crowes before wrapping up on June 27 with Soundgarden's “Live From The Artists Den.”

“Nostalgia is a powerful thing and these days, people are longing not only for a time when life was less complicated, but more imminently, for the day when we can get together to enjoy our favorite bands performing live again,” says Sarah Weidman, Head of Original Programming, Development and Multi-Platform Content for AXS TV. “From the fashion and music, to the toys and TV shows, the one era that people are constantly turning to is the 1990s.

"This curated concert series presents the ultimate trip down music’s memory lane, taking viewers back to one of rock’s most definitive decades with classic performances, iconic songs and groundbreaking bands that helped make the ‘90s so distinct.”

“Long Live The 90s” will air Suday nights at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT on AXS TV.
