Bring Pearl Jam to Iceland

A little while back, an Icelandic fan started an online petition to get Pearl Jam to play a show in Iceland. As there are not many places that we would prefer more to see Pearl Jam than Iceland, we had to support the cause – but we were also curious to know more about the background for the petition. Who was behind it and how was the idea born?

We got in contact with Throstur Bragason, the man behind the petition, and did a small Q&A with him.

Eddie Vedder in Berlin – experienced from a bad Ten Club seat

Danish fan Sofie went to see her second ever Eddie Vedder concert in Berlin – which was amazing, of course! Though she travelled to Germany alone, she ended up hanging out with many (new) Pearl Jam friends – and went on a little treasure hunt around town to try to meet Eddie.

After a night of meeting and drinking with other Pearl Jam fans, I met my Norwegian friend Cecilie in front of Hotel de Rome in the morning of the day of the concert. We waited for Eddie to come out for 4,5 hours in the burning sun, but nothing happened. A couple of friends showed up and kept us company for a while and we also talked to two German guys who also waited for Eddie. At noon, I got a tip that Eddie was at The Ramones Museum, and Cecilie and I got a cab – but when we got there, Eddie had already left the building. Cecilie and I hung out and got something to drink in the tiny, but awesome café/museum and the two German guys showed up too and joined us.

Win a ticket to see Eddie Vedder in Berlin

We are giving away one Ten Club ticket to see Eddie Vedder in Berlin on June 28, 2019. The contest takes place on our Facebook page www.facebook.com/pearljamnordicofficial

Check out or Facebook page for a chance to win a ticket to see Eddie in Berlin!

But nothing comes for free! You have to help us come up with a name for our new mascot, the punk skeleton. The artwork was done by Chicho from Tigre Tattoo Parlour in Copenhagen, and we’re already feeling like the little skinny punk is already a part of our Jamily. So of course it needs a name. It is up to you to decide if it’s a boy or a girl or something completely different.

Help us find a name for this little dude/dudette.

Hope to see you in Berlin! 🙂

New PJ Nordic Facebook page

Dear friends & jamily,

Three years ago we started the fan community Pearl Jam Nordic. We have put a lot of hard work, blood, sweat, tears and money into getting this fan community to where it is today.

In less than three years we have gained 10,000 followers on Facebook, arranged events and meet-ups, travelled the world, met a lot of beautiful people and had a lot of fun.

However, sadly we have lost access to our Facebook page. To say that we are devastated is an understatement.

But we’re not going to let this bring us down!

And that is why we have decided to start over again from scratch! As of today we are relaunching PEARL JAM NORDIC on www.facebook.com/pearljamnordicofficial

We have a brand new smoking hot logo designed by the incredibly talented tattoo artist Chicho from Tigre Tattoo Parlour in Copenhagen. It is ready to go onto t-shirts, totebags and stickers. We will have some giveaways with some AMAZING PRIZES to celebrate the new and fresh PEARL JAM NORDIC!

New smashing Pearl Jam Nordic artwork by Chicho from Tigre Tattoo Parlour in Copenhagen. Will be available on t-shirts, totebags and stickers very soon. Click to view full size.

So please join us (again) and take part in the fun. Please help spread the word. This community means the world to us, and we would be so happy to stay in touch with all of the great people that we have met and brought together through this community.

We can’t wait to see you on tour around Europe this summer!

Peace & love to you all,

Cecilie & Pernille
PEARL JAM NORDIC

Nordic fan portrait: Sofie – The new generation

When you look at the audience at a Pearl Jam show, you’ll find that most fans are somewhere between the age of 40 to 50 years old with a small majority of men. There is nothing surprising in this fact (or rather than fact, it’s my personal experience) considering the genre of music that Pearl Jam plays and the time they had their big break through in the nineties. Most of us were teens during those years, the band was pretty hard to avoid back then, and research shows that people form their musical identity in their early teens or a little earlier. So when I see a new young(er) face in the fan community, it always catches my eye and sparks my curioisity. How do people discover Pearl Jam these days when there’s no music on MTV and the media in general is dominated by crappy meaningless pop?

29-year-old Sofie Thybo Pedersen showed up at a Pearl Jam Nordic gathering at a bar in central Copenhagen in January. She showed up alone and knew nobody there but felt like a part of the Jamily right away, and that’s what’s so cool about the Jamily: You’re never a stranger. You’re a part of the tribe. The day after the meeting I contacted Sofie to ask if she wanted to do an interview for the blog, so I could ask her more about her story of becoming a Pearl Jam fan and share it with the world.
