Dear Houston, Kindly Shut the Hell Up at Eddie Vedder

Categories: Playbill

Above all, just shut the hell up. I know we are all "stoked" as hell to see the dude from Pearl Jam, but remember this is meant to be a quiet concert. Don't be a hiccup on a tour. Don't be the stereotypical radio-rock crowd that will shut up during a Blue October acoustic show but fuckin' HAS TO TALK ABOUT THEIR NEW TRUCK AND THE HOMELESS PEOPLE ON THE STREET OUTSIDE YUCK RIGHT AND THE PARKING SITUATION AND WHETHER OR NOT LITTLE WOODROW'S WILL BE OPEN WHEN THIS SHIT IS OVER at the Eddie Vedder show.

PJ doesn't come here ever -- since 2000-something? -- so don't be the crowd that makes Vedder say to himself "Man, at least those goons in Dallas kept their douche mouths shut. I should have Pearl Jam play two shows there with Soundgarden next year on the next touring cycle."

Enjoy the show. Save the gushing and fawning for the lobby. Or when you find out where Vedder is staying here in Houston, as you bang on his hotel room door.

Just shut yer mouths. Simple as that. Glue your mouth shut if you have too. Have a friend tape it closed.

Or don't.

Give us something to write about.

It's funny to read this a year later... PJ DID go to Dallas and not Houston on their Lightning Bolt tour. 

BTW, does the person who wrote this piece also have psychic abilities cause he called it!

it was actually MUCH better than the Austin shows, which were riddled with loud people. A few screamers...and Eddie took it in stride and even chatted one up before telling her to go back into the lobby and have another drink

So - did they behave? (and by the way, it's "flout", not "flaunt.")

"Do not make Mr. Vedder DISAPPOINT in you, Houston." Who writes this garbage?

He had me until he mentioned Michael Bolton show. That is disgusting!

I paid $100 for my ticket....yes, ticket, as in singular, because they were sold SLAP OUT of anything else, and I had even logged in on ticketmaster.com right @ 10am the day the tix went on sale. (and yes, PJ went to the Supreme Court with the crap with ticketmaster price gouging, back in the 90s)....but I really don't care that I will be going by myself, because I have waited 12 yrs & 28 days to see this man perform again, and nothing was gonna stop me, not even the postponement.  I will be sitting ever so quietly and politely in hopes that my fellow concert-goers will do the same...I'm getting more and more excited as the hours pass...less than 5 hours to go!

I'd rather sit back and enjoy the show I paid 90 effing dollars to see, but yeah I'll be on alert, too. Here's hoping the dipshit who kept yelling "PSYCHO KILLERRR!" At the David Byrne/St. Vincent show has other plans tonight.

80 bucks? Isn't he the guy that went after ticketmaster for price gouging?

I imagine Brooding Eddie is not what most of these people thought they were getting. for the most parts, my Concert experiences in Houston have been pretty good, save for the Frat boy antics of a few. Heard a dude at The P.I.L. show complaining that "he didnt even play God Save The Queen!!" and could not fathom that this was a different band. A quiet and respectful audience will get a magical show from brooding Eddie. Frat boy audience will get the contractual obligation show

Thank you Craig Hlavaty. I pray people are listening. I will be policing the audience. And most likely going to jail for punching some "bro" who won't shut up.

 @fsh86 Well since the reference was lost I had to add a link. Jesus.
