You shouldn't brag about posting stuff in the wrong thread, Ruddo.

Well if they are updating their site to announce a fall tour, it won't be the wrong thread now, will it?

The Pearl Jam Problem: Superfans Have Ruined My Favorite Band

Pearl Jam at Bonnaroo. If you’d asked over the last several years what my perfect music festival experience would be, that would be my answer. My favorite band of 24 years, at the best festival in America. Heading into Bonnaroo weekend this year, I was no less excited in my 55th time seeing the band than I was for the first, lightning storms be damned. A sweltering, all-day endurance challenge to stand in line for front rail positioning was par for the course, a small penance as it was all part of an experience, a test of endurance in a full day of physical discomfort for a lifetime of memories from seeing Pearl Jam as close as you possibly can.

But when showtime came, between a shockingly lackluster setlist, constant lyric-mangling performance by frontman Eddie Vedder (the band dutifully killed it, as always) and a stupefying amount of entitled middle-aged “superfans” acting like spoiled children, the reality of Pearl Jam's Bonnaroo performance came nowhere close to the anticipation.

Alright, I haven't gotten further than this, but ...

(1) With 55 shows under his belt, this guy is a "superfan" whether he thinks it or not.
(2) His whining about the setlist is the spoiled entitlement that he is complaining about in other fans.

When your singer, the legendary Eddie fucking Vedder, completely forgets the cues and words to the first two songs, entirely giving up on the second one (the third verse of “Save You” simply became a guitar solo), something’s gotta give. When that band is the most anticipated headliner of the entire festival, and they’re known for astoundingly great performances? That’s just flat-out unacceptable. Hell, their 2008 Bonnaroo setlist is the stuff dreams are made of. Comparatively speaking, this year's setlist was a mixtape for college orientation circa 1992, with or without Vedder's stumbles.

while i can't disagree with him, this is a 'hot take', that's all. again, he's not entirely wrong as it's stuff i'm sure we've all seen and talked about on here, but he's been to 55 shows- acting as if this is a new trend that has pushed him away is absurd.
