Eddie Vedder has posted a video accepting the “All In Challenge,” helping raise money for COVID-19 relief efforts by offering a Pearl Jam concert “birthday package” for a winning fan.
Laura Dern nominated the Pearl Jam frontman for the challenge, who responded with the above video detailing the prize package. The winner (and a plus-one) gets a ticket to a Pearl Jam concert of their choice (when concerts are a thing again), being allowed to sit in for Pearl Jam’s soundcheck, getting an inside look on how the setlist for a show comes together.and even offer a bit of input on song choices to Vedder.
Throughout the actual show, the winning fan will get some up-front seats for the first half, and then get to watch the rest of the show from the side of the stage – potentially helping out, as Vedder notes: “And as long as you’re up there with the crew, I figure, heck, maybe you could bring out a guitar for me, we could put you to work a little bit.” Pearl Jam won’t ask you to work for free, as there’s the promise of some wine as well. And finally, the crowd at the gig will sing Happy Birthday to the winners, as they’re handed a signed Fender Telecaster.
