UPS helps Pearl Jam reduce their carbon footprint

As all Pearl Jam fans know by now, the band has been making a conscience effort to reduce their carbon footprint when touring for a few years now. They have now teamed up with UPS and Stone Gossard talks about using the shipping company for the PJ20 Destination Weekend event last year. Here's what UPS had to say on their site:

From stage diving to sustainability. Since their debut 20 years ago, Pearl Jam has evolved from an alternative rock band to a full-scale business. They recently partnered with UPS to devise a transportation strategy and offset the impact of their PJ20 Anniversary Destination Weekend. UPS employed a simple tactic: they used multiple forms of transportation, including rail, instead of semis to move the band's equipment. This helped Pearl Jam reduce a large portion of their carbon output during the PJ20 Destination Weekend. UPS offset the remaining 19 tonnes of carbon by investing in carbon reclamation efforts. The band was so impressed with the results, they're now talking and strategizing with UPS for further solutions to minimize and offset the impact of their tours on the planet.

Eddie Vedder Postpones U.S. Tour due to nerve damage in arm

Just got the news today, oh boy..... Well, not that bad but it's a downer for me... I was looking forward to it... Here's the email... NOTE: We will reschedule the preparty when new date is announced.


We regret to inform you that Eddie Vedder has announced the postponement of his 15-city U.S. solo tour today due to temporary nerve damage in his right arm, the result of a back injury sustained earlier this year.

Pearl Jam manager Kelly Curtis explains, "After having worked aggressively with doctors and physical therapists for the last eight weeks to repair the damage, the intensity of the injury and time needed to heal has made it impossible to play the shows as scheduled. There was hope up until the last minute that the treatments would be successful.  Sincerest apologies go out to those who have made plans and bought tickets.  Eddie is frustrated beyond measure, but remains positive that come this summer all will be back in good form."

All postponed dates will be rescheduled for November and December 2012. Your purchased fan club tickets will automatically be honored for the corresponding rescheduled dates. Refunds will be available for a limited time upon request. The deadline to submit your refund request is Friday, April 20th at 5pm PDT.
