I get to see Pearl Jam play Chicago's Wrigley Field twice later this month.  PJ fans have been looking forward to August for a while now, as the legendary Seattle band will be playing two legendary ballparks.  Wrigley Field is on deck... first up, Boston's Fenway Park.

Night 1 at Fenway featured beautiful weather, appearances by former Red Sox (Bronson Arroyo on guitar during "Black" and Kevin Youkilis bringing out Vedder's ukelele), and an astounding setlist.  They busted out some very rare stuff from their catalog and a few great covers, including a nod to Boston's own, Aerosmith ("Draw the Line")  Just another ho hum, 30+ song, almost 3-hour show.  Bring on Wrigley!
