50 million hands upraised and open toward the sky


A reminder about the Wishlist Foundation pre-party fundraiser taking place this Monday evening, 7 July, the night before Pearl Jam are live at Leeds (will Ed mention The Who that night?).

The fundraiser is being held at Carpe Diem, and entertainment comes from an excellent Eddie Vedder solo tribute act (I’ve seen him in Pearl Jammer a couple of times, and he’s top notch). There’ll also be an auction and raffle – the following will be up for grabs, with more items arriving on the night:


Grey Mike Lighting T-shirt
Flight to Mars T-shirts

Tickets for the raffle will be £1.50 each or a strip of 5 for £5
Various magazines from 92 onwards
Various Christmas Singles
Eddie Vedder Perth Tour Poster
Alice in Chains/Deftones Vegas Poster
5 x Rockfords (Mike) CDs
Hovercraft t-shirt Signed by Beth
7 x Pearl Jam Word Crowd Posters
Live in New York CD
Various Promo CDs and Alive Promo DVD

There will also be lots of Easy Street stickers, Pearl Jam tour stickers, Wishlist stickers, Wishlist wristbands which will be given away on the night, along with a poster lucky dip for £5 a go… with some very rare posters to be won from early US tours.


Beneficiaries for the night are the Leeds Children’s Heart Surgery Foundation TrustBrysons Animal Refuge and Leonard Cheshire Disability. So, bring your wallets and a generous state of mind: great causes and a great night’s entertainment, and all with a PJ gig the next night to look forward to – and for any of you who haven’t seen them yet on this European tour (I saw them in Stockholm last week), they are on cracking form!
