Famed 90’s rock band, Pearl Jam has been loved by fans for 25 plus years, but what they’ve done recently will make you love them even more. They have gone on tour once again, but this time for an even better cause, they take the profits made from ticket purchases, merchandise, and other items, and give it to a homeless organization to try and put an end to homelessness. Called “The Home Shows”, because they played in their hometown of Seattle at Safeco Field August, 8-10.

Pearl Jam performs benefit concert to end homelessness at Safeco Field, in Seattle, Washington

This is a passion project for the band. Frontman Eddie Vedder stated that “Over 42,000 kids in Washington State are homeless, and they go to school so that they can have a place to be other than the streets.” I can tell how much they care because when I went to Seattle this summer and saw them live at the first home show, they brought out their old teachers on stage and dedicated a song to them to show how much teachers do not only for homeless kids but for all kids. Pearl Jam is one of those iconic bands that have such a history all over the world and with fans, so they have a bunch of support from all age groups and people all over the world.

A story that Eddie told on stage was that there was a homeless man that he was friends with  in the 90’s. After they went on tour  they came back and when Eddie tried looking for his friend, and he was told that he was dead because he was sick. Eddie wanted to dedicate their song “Even Flow” to him because “he in a way helped us write it”. So you can tell that from personal experience that Eddie wants to try to put an end homelessness across the country and eventually across the world.
