Hey it’s Scott Alan,
Pearl Jam fans in New York City have launched a crowd-funding campaign to bring the band to Forest Hill Stadium in Queens. Daniel Sheffer, his sister Angelica, and Albert Lee– were inspired by a similar effort that brought Foo Fighters to Richmond, Virginia and decided last November to take the same route.
The effort has raised $139,000 so far. Sheffer said that Pearl Jam is aware of the campaign and supports it, but is currently off the road and might not be able to make the show happen this year. He added that he could see the concert happening in 2016, when the band is expected to hit the road to commemorate its 25th anniversary.
