Pearl Jam fans raise $100,000

Fans of the band Pearl Jam are begging the band to come play for them at the newly-restored Forest Hills Stadium this summer, and they just might pull it off.

Inspired by a previously successful campaign to bring the Foo Fighters to Richmond, Virginia, a crowdfunding initiative was started two months ago, and already it has brought in $104,262 from 452 backers as of noon on Wednesday, January 7, 2015.

“This would be a unforgettable evening(s) for the band, the fans, the crew and NYC. We have the support of several PJ groups on FB and Twitter and will give our proposal to Pearl Jam management no later than 1/2015,” says the Tilt fundraising site dedicated to the crowd fund. “If The Beatles, The Who and Dylan can play Forest Hills why not add legendary Pearl Jam to the mix?”

So far, Pearl Jam’s management has not responded to requests for information as to whether the band will oblige their fans, but in November reporters were told that the band was on a rest break following a two-year tour cycle.

A fundraising event is scheduled to take place tomorrow night at 8 p.m. at Austin’s Ale House, located at 82-70 Austin Street in Kew Gardens.

The fundraising goal of the Tilt campaign $1 million, and unless the full goal is met – or the band decides to  play the show – no one will be charged, according to organizers.
