Pearl jam for Glastonbury

Recommended Posts

Whoever it was that said Pearl Jam’s only UK date is in July was bang on the money.

Been a couple of random internet users with very good info this year.

I dunno about the other shows, but Idles are supporting them at the Copenhagen gig. I bet that will be an incredible night; just a shame I'm at Glastonbury instead! ?

For me, the big Q is will Hyde Park have the Diamond and Gold circles that are in place for Little Mix?

Anyone got this info, or will we find out on ticket day?

There is a golden circle; I don't think the price is significantly different, but you have to be in the Pearl Jam fan club thing :(

OK. Somewhat similar to the situation when they play arenas here. Fan club has exclusive access to the GA floor standing area. A lot fairer than the big prices other acts are charging for gold circles but still annoying.

I joined their fan club for a year a few years ago just for this reason. When the tour came along they played MK bowl which had no golden circle and the pit was for everyone, so a bit frustrating... Otherwise I have no interest in being a member of a fan club. I'm not 11.

I'm hoping to find someone in the fan club that can get me a ticket, but I imagined those will sell out quite fast

Yep. It was superb, indeed.

I like MK bowl. Definitely the best outdoor venue I've been to in this country. A shame it's not active anymore.

Help me out folks, i'm trying to decide between London and Copenhagen...

London pros:

  • Hyde Park is a nice place to spend a day in the summer
  • More chance of me convincing friends to come
  • Full day of music; confirmed acts are good so far
  • I live in the UK

London cons:

  • Unless I can find a Ten Club member to help me out or I pay a lot of money, i'll be stuck in the back with all the other commoners 
  • Hyde Park is kinda shit

Copenhagen pros: 

  • I'm probably going to be flying to Denmark on that day, so coincides quite nicely
  • The support is IDLES
  • It's 20 years since the Roskilde tragedy; so will likely be a very special and emotional perfomance

Copenhagen cons:

  • It's on Glasto monday so Glasto > flight > concert could be quite exhausting
  • its quite expensive, around £85+fees for standing
  • Won't be a full day of music, probably just 1-2 supports I imagine

I cannot imagine BST being any cheaper than this.

True, but at least BST will have many acts across multiple stages, so it would be cheaper per act. Here are the prices for BST

No golden circle... is it possible they just won't have one? I have seen may acts at Hyde Park including PJ without a golden circle. I know the fan club was mentioned, but maybe they'll just not bother with it.

When I last went to Hyde park we paid someone just outside the golden circle £10 or £20 each for a wristband to get entry.....Side hustle of security? left overs just going cheap? I dunno what it was but swapped us from being at the back to 2nd or 3rd row front and centre.

Nope, there is a golden circle. "Entry permitted for Ten Club, American Express Summer Garden, and HydeAway ticket holders."

Fair enough, but the amex summer garden is only 20 quid more - which I think is close to what 10 club members pay per year for membership...

Well Hyde Park looks inviting but if you want really think about it you can fly out to a European city for the price of getting and staying in Londonia... 

Was looking into Paris lollapalooza but they don't do carers tix and with glastonbury, beautiful days and Leeds I'm already in my 2021 festival savings lol

So I'm going to be sorting it out tomorrow.. I'm wanting Poland wife wants Hyde Park... Lots of paper work to be done tonight.....

Just got 2 ten club tickets... same price as normal. Can only get 2. Have to have joined ten club at least a week ago so you can't just join on spot. All seems fair and sensible. Good old pearl jam. 

Going to be huge. Bring it on. 

Pixies can fuck off though.

Or if you’ve got an American Express card you can save yourself the Ten Club fee, and buy up to six tickets.
