I just don’t get it, what does Pearl Jam have against the south? Last week PJ announced a new tour, which kicks off June 11th in West Palm Beach, Florida. Yes, I know Pearl Jam’s playing in Florida, South Carolina and Virginia during their upcoming tour, as well as a stop in Tennessee for Bonnaroo, but no one really considers Virginia the south anymore. I guess I have to give them credit for playing South Carolina, but as the official announcement reads they’re calling it an East Coast tour.
What’s a state gotta do to get some love from Vedder and Co.? It’s been years since Pearl Jam’s graced the Lone Star state with their presence and it doesn’t seem like they’ll be playing in Texas anytime soon. For those of you on the east coast hopefully you’ll be able to catch a show during Pearl Jam’s 11 date 2008 East Coast tour.
