Pearl Jam’s Missoula show marks the band’s only U.S. non-festival date for 2012, as well as their last scheduled performance for the year. Earlier in the month, Pearl Jam will headline three U.S. festivals – Made in America, DeLuna Fest and Music Midtown.
Pearl Jam last performed in Missoula in August 2005, when they hosted a fundraising concert for Democratic politician Jon Tester. Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament and now-Sen. Tester both hail from Big Sandy, and their families are longtime friends.
Tester’s U.S. Senate campaign will offer premium ticket packages for the concert. Included in these premium packages are choice seats for the concert as well as admission to a preshow event with Tester, Ament and other members of Pearl Jam. Full details are available online at http://jontester.com.
Fans also are encouraged to participate in a first ever “Best Seats in the World” sweepstakes being sponsored by Tester’s re-election campaign. Fans can contribute $10 or any other amount to be automatically entered to win an opportunity to watch Pearl Jam’s show from a seat on stage, along with travel, hotel accommodations and meals, VIP passes to the show and admission to preshow events with Tester, Ament and other members of Pearl Jam. Full details are available on Tester’s website.
