Eddie Vedder Playing 2 Nights at Auditorium Theater

Update: "I scored Ten Club tickets to night one but got shut out of night two. Courtney says I'm on my own for the second night anyway so I'll try and hunt down a single on Craigslist or TM."

As a few readers may or may not know I'm a Pearl Jam freak. Seen 'em 30 or so times in many, many states and two countries. The band just wrapped up an east coast tour which I did not attend. Having a baby sort of negates road trips to see Pearl Jam. But hey, Eddie playing two solo gigs in Chicago isn't a bad second choice.

He plays Aug. 21 and 22 at the Auditorium Theater. Tickets go on sale to the public next week with a Ten Club pre-sale Monday. I didn't get pre-sale tickets for the Vic Show last summer and was devestated, so Courtney says not to get my hopes up. But I'd have to think I could secure tickets to at least one show if not both. And if not, I'll just have to go the Craigslist or Stubhub route.

I've seen Eddie play with C Average, but not completely solo. It's a much looser show than with Pearl Jam obviously. I really thought he did a good job with the Into The Wild soundtrack and am looking forward to hearing that stuff live. 

I've been on a bit of a Pearl Jam kick following the recent tour and downloading a bunch of new boots from the 2006 tour that are now tradeable. Good stuff.
