As MGK’s resident Pearl Jam fan, I wanted to fill you in on a legendary Pearl Jam performance that took place earlier this month across the pond.

On July 8th and 9th, Pearl Jam played the British Summertime Festival concerts series in Hyde Park, London. Featuring special guests: The Pixies. According to Kerrang!’s review of the gig, Pearl Jam is the only other act alongside both Adele and The Rolling Stones that were scheduled to play two nights back to back during this year’s British Summertime.

Although I’ve had the chance to see Pearl Jam on several occasions, it would’ve been incredible to see this Hyde Park performance. Especially to have seen their cover of Neil Young’s “Rockin’ In The Free World” featuring tennis player John McEnroe.

I’m looking forward to seeing Pearl Jam when they return to the area for a sold-out show at Freedom Mortgage Pavilion in Camden on September 14th. See you there!
