Christmas in July: Vedder Plays First of Two Nights at Benaroya Tonight

2011 has been quite the year for Pearl Jam fans. In addition to marking the 20th anniversary of the band’s debut Ten with a much-buzzed about festival just outside frontman Eddie Vedder’s pre-West Coast hometown of Chicago, fans will be treated to a much-buzzed about documentary directed by Cameron Crowe that will air on PBS this October. To top it off, Vedder himself released a second solo album that saw him touring the country playing with Glen Hansard and acclaimed local talent from a variety of cities.

Local fans have long had this date circled on calendars for months but for the rest of you, tonight is Vedder’s first hometown show at Benaroya. Vedder will also return tomorrow night to entertain a capacity crowd with a wide-selection of covers and other songs of his latest, ukulele-only record.
