Pearl Jam to combat homelessness with two Safeco Field shows; Erasure headed to Seattle this summer

by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

Though the Emerald City is their home, Pearl Jam doesn't perform here that often. Instead, they randomly appear in concerts around the world, as their global popularity is even greater now than when they broke through in the early '90s. While the Seattle band continues to amaze its core base of fans, who discovered them during the famous grunge movement, they've also drawn a generation of new followers, some who were introduced to the group's music by their parents. Billed as 'The Home Shows,' Pearl Jam will perform two concerts at Safeco Field, on August 8 and 10, to help raise money for local homeless initiatives; they've already committed to donating $1 million to help battle the homeless issue in Seattle and will select local beneficiaries closer to the performance dates. The Grammy-winning act is asking fans to also donate to the cause, in hopes of raising $10 million. The Home Shows are expected to attract 100,000 attendees combined with Pearl Jam inviting fans from all corners of the universe to converge in Seattle for this special event.

In response to the announcement of the Safeco concerts, newly elected Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan issued the following statement in a press release, 'We must have everyone in the fight to solve homelessness including our local government, caring philanthropists, community organizations, individuals, and artists - all are dedicated to finding innovative long-term solutions to homelessness. I can't wait to join this iconic Seattle band in August.' Tickets for 'The Home Shows' in Seattle will be made available through a Ticketmaster Verified FanĀ® registration and ticket presale, a Ten Club presale for eligible members and a general public ticket sale. Ticketmaster Verified Fan registration closes on February 6 at 4pm PT. To register, please visit: https://pearljam.tmverifiedfan.com.



Erasure is headed back to Seattle this summer, as part of a North American tour that kicks off in Miami on July 6; the pop-electronic duo will perform a series of dates in Europe before hopping across the Atlantic. The legendary act, comprised of keyboardist Vince Clark and openly gay vocalist-songwriter Andy Bell, who interviewed with Seattle Gay News a few years ago [in 2011 http://www.sgn.org/sgnnews39_39/page38.cfm and in 2013 http://www.sgn.org/sgnnews41_45/page21.cfm], have released about a dozen big hits in its 32-year career, including 'Chains of Love,' 'Oh L'amour,' 'A Little Respect,' 'Love to Hate You,' 'Sometimes,' 'Victim of Love' and 'Always.' The English pair will release a new album, titled World Beyond, on March 9 and features members of the classical ensemble Echo Collective. Erasure is scheduled to appear at the Moore Theatre on August 14; tickets are on sale now at www.LiveNation.com, or charge by phone at 1-800-745-3000.

Also coming to the Emerald City this summer are Hall & Oates with Train on a co-headlining tour that includes a stop at Key Arena on August 11. The latter is responsible for the smash singles 'Hey, Soul Sister,' 'Drops of Jupiter (Tell Me),' 'Meet Virginia' and 'Drive By,' while the former is behind a series of Top 10 hits from the '70s and '80s, such as 'Maneater,' 'Out of Touch,' 'You Make My Dreams,' 'Rich Girl,' 'Private Eyes,' 'Kiss on My List,' 'I Can't Go for That (No Can Do)' and a popular remake of the Righteous Brothers' classic 'You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'.' Tickets to see Hall & Oates with Train go on sale January 29 (10am) at www.LiveNation.com, or charge by at phone 1-800-745-3000.

An upcoming show to put on your calendar, if you haven't already, is Michael Feinstein at Broadway Center for the Performing Arts' Pantages Theater (Tacoma) on February 23 and the Edmonds Center for the Arts on February 24. The concert is 'Celebrating the Crooners - Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Bing Crosby, & Others.' The traditional pop singer, who moonlights as a live music nightclub owner (Feinstein's/54 Below in NYC) and Artistic Director for The Center for the Performing Arts in Carmel, Indiana, has released nearly 40 albums since 1985, many of them filled with sparkling renditions of Broadway tunes and nostalgic pop numbers; his most recent is 2014's A Michael Feinstein Christmas. Tickets, ranging between $39 to $95 at the Pantages Theater (Tacoma) and $59 to $94 at the Edmonds Center for the Arts, are on sale now at www.broadwaycenter.org and www.edmondscenterforthearts.org.

We're not done yet. In addition to the concerts listed above, hip hop giant Kendrick Lamar will perform at White River Amphitheatre on May 5, electronic-pop duo MGMT will play The Showbox SoDo on May 12, rock bands Def Leppard and Journey will appear jointly at The Gorge Amphitheatre on May 21 and alternative rock standout Jack White is set to jam at WaMu Theater on August 13.

Finally, a sad farewell to Delores O'Riordan, the lead singer of Irish band The Cranberries, who passed away unexpectedly on January 15. The group is known for a short string of transcontinental singles, including 'Zombie,' 'Linger' and 'Salvation.' Riordan was 46 years old.
