In our quest to present an accurate archive of Pearl Jam's past appearances in the Concert Chronology, we occasionally receive info about shows that may have occurred, but we don't have a date, venue, setlist or even solid, compelling evidence that the show actually occurred. So we've decided to start listing possible or unconfirmed shows, hopeful that someone who attended these shows most from many years ago will help us unravel the mystery.
If you have solid evidence that will help solve these puzzles (ticket stub, newspaper announcement or review, photos, handbills, etc.) please contact us.
As mystery shows and the details surrounding them are revealed, they will be added to the appropriate section of the Concert Chronology and removed from this subpage.
Current mysteries pending:
- 1/11/91? - The Town Pump: Vancouver, BC
We have more evidence, including a venue name, that this Mookie Blaylock show occurred (perhaps opening for AIC). We understand there were less than 100 people there but we're still trying to nail down a solid date. [thanks to Andrew Brenner, Phil Dewan, Dallas and Greg Little]
- Mystery solved!
1/12/91 - OK Hotel: Seattle (Temple of the Dog show!)
We have a clipping announcing this show -- it REALLY surprised us! We'd thought the 11/13/90 show was the only true TOTD show. After posting an inquiry here, we learned it was scheduled but canceled [thanks to Tom Bout]
- Mystery solved!
sometime in '91 - Duffy's: Lincoln, NE
We had a note regarding seeing PJ at a place called "Duffy's" in Lincoln, NE sometime during 1991. We know now that they never played there. Although Duffy's featured many artists who were unknown at the time but went on to stardom (including Nirvana, the Mighty Mighty Bosstones, the Flaming Lips, Henry Rollins, the Screaming Trees, Helmet and many others), when the owner attempted to book PJ, they learned they had already booked a tour. [Thanks to Eric Johnson for his sleuthing]
- 4/5/92 - probably NOT Metropolis: Montreal
So many Canadian fans have written contesting that this show didn't occur in Montreal that we feel confident it didn't happen. For now, we are removing this date from the Concert Chronology. If you were at a PJ show somewhere on April 5, 1992 and have a flier, newspaper clipping, etc., please contact us. We're looking for evidence for any show on this date.
- April '92 - Cat's Cradle: Chapel Hill, NC
There is confirmation that this show did occur and will list it in the CC when we have a date. (We also have word they played the Cat's Cradle in October '91!) [thanks to James Raiford and Dangerboy]
- 08/29/92 - Alpine Valley: East Troy, WI
09/08/92 - Desert Sky Pavilion: Phoenix, AZ
Did Ed and Chris really sing a short set on the third stage at BOTH of these shows? We're really sure about Alpine; we're looking for additional witnesses for the Phoenix happening.
- 06/16/93 - University Theater: Univ. of MT: Missoula
