The Seattle rock act managed to give a huge donation for the fight against poverty after their charity concert profited about $3 Million.
Seattle rockers Pearl Jam scored a huge success with their private charity gig by managing to earn about $3 million from the concert. The band played the benefit concert at the Beacon Theater, New York on July 1 and delivered about 26 songs that night.
Beside playing their own tracks, on the concert, Pearl Jam also treated their fans with some special stuffs by playing some cover songs. The two covers that the band played were, "Harvest Moon" by Neil Young and "Masters of War" by Bob Dylan.
Meanwhile, all the profit that comes from the concert will all go to Robin Hood Foundation's poverty fighting initiatives. Not only being set as a charity event, but the concert on July 1 also marked Pearl Jam's last mini-tour in the U.S.
Now that their tour is finished, the band will finally take the time to complete the work for their new studio album that have actually started in May but got halted due to their tour schedule. On the upcoming LP the band will be teaming up with their old time friend and producer Brendan O'Brien.
