Pearl Jam are offering free concert tickets to fans in a bid to encourage voting in the forthcoming US presidential elections.
In a new posting on their official website ([a][/a]) the band have called for fans to man registration stands at up coming US shows in order to encourage as many voters as possible to gain and use their voice for the November ballot.
They are offering free tickets for the shows to anyone who takes up the offer.
Their posting reads: “We are looking for serious volunteers who would be willing to come to the shows and help register voters. We would need you to work with our staff from approximately 5:30pm-8:30pm to register potential voters before the concert begins. In return, we will guarantee you one ticket.”
Those interested are asked send “their name, home phone number, e-mail address, city and date of the show you can work, and any other pertinent info to [url=]www.DigitalKat@aol.com.”
Pearl Jam’s mammoth jaunt around the US and Canada comes to an end on November 5 in Seattle, just ahead of the presidential vote.
Meanwhile respected Pearl Jam fansite [url=]www.fivehorizons.com has unveiled cover-art for the band’s forthcoming selection of double live albums.
Using the same minimalist approach as The Who’s ‘Live At Leeds’ album – band name, name of town, venue and date – it appropriates the style of unofficial bootlegs the series of albums was designed to combat.
As previously announced on nme.com, Pearl Jam will release 25 of these double disc European show recordings on September 26. They will be available through their Ten Club fan website ([url=]www.tenclub.com).
