BIG day today for all us huge Pearl Jam fans here in NYC, so I’m even throwing up an old PJ sig on here to celebrate!! ….Pearl Jam are playing later today here on the Great Lawn in Central Park, which is literally about a 10-15 minutes walk from where I live, in fact I could probably throw open the windows and hear it!! - it's the Global Citizen Festival, and me and a friend managed to get tickets, which were actually FREE, free concerts? – now there’s an idea!! The trouble is there’s also 3 other acts on the bill ….Coldplay are actually okay, and in fact some of their stuff IMO has been great, and they're due to be first band up on stage at around 4.00 o'clock, but as for the other two....personally I'd rather spend all day sticking needles into my ears, but as it's for such a great cause then I guess I'll put up with it. The Pope was actually here yesterday - which pretty much shut down the entire midtown area for a few hours, and drew huge crowds, though I really don't know whether The Pope is bigger here than Eddie Vedder.
