“The Home Shows” brought the “Homeless Situation in Seattle” to the forefront.  The band raised over 11 million dollars to raise awareness about the root causes of homelessness.  By creating solutions and assisting organizations that are currently working to curb, and prevent an increase of homelessness in Seattle.

Wednesday nights performance was Pearl Jam’s first home show in over 5 years.  With both shows being completely sold out since going on sale earlier this year.  This was the ultimate ticket for any true Pearl Jam fan.

The 30 plus song setlist covered their entire career to date.  Brandishing hits like Corduroy, Black, State of Love and Trust, and Rearviewmirror.  Eddie and company put on a performance rivaling any show that I’ve had the pleasure of attending over the course of their career. If tonight’s performance was an indicator for what’s to come.  I can safely say, I can’t wait for Friday night.

“The Home Shows” at Safeco Field Help Raise Homeless Awareness in Seattle, Help raise over 11 million dollars.
