On Saturday night of Bonnaroo last summer, Pearl Jam took their headlining set late into the night following a two-hour rain delay earlier in the evening. It was another fantastic major festival set from Vedder and co. on the third day of the Manchester, TN event. Two days earlier on June 9, the 90s rock icons were playing a different kind of concert, with a secret show at the Blue Room, a small venue belonging to Jack White’s Third Man Records just up the road in Nashville.
Only 250 lucky fans of the band were at the intimate show, but now subscribers to SiriusXM are able to listen to the entire performance on the satellite radio behemoth's Pearl Jam Radio Channel all the way up to New Year’s Day.
Announced on their website last week, the performance will have eleven total airings which started on Christmas Eve and will run every day, occasionally twice per day until 1/1/2017.
“Earlier this year, Pearl Jam stopped by their friend Jack White's record shop for a secret collaboration,” the statement reads. “Hear this incredible once-in-a-lifetime performance recorded direct-to-vinyl, with exclusive commentary from Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready and hosted by The Rob on SiriusXM's Pearl Jam Radio Channel 22”
A highlight of the performance included Jack White joining the band on the unreleased “Of The Earth.”
The recordings of the performance were released with limited pressings through Third Man Records’ subscription service and also included a 7" solo acoustic recording of Eddie Vedder singing "Out of Sand," recorded via Third Man's Voice-o-Graph recording booth.
