Pearl Jam: Single Video Theory on Blu-ray

Exactly 25 years after its first release, Single Video Theory is back on HD Blu-ray.

On August 4th 2023, 25 years after its first release on VHS, Single Video Theory Blu-ray will be available for purchase on Pearl Jam official site.

Single Video Theory is a 45 minutes long documentary produced by Cameron Crowe and directed by Mark Pellington (who also directed Jeremy music video in 1992).

Erroneously promoted as the making-of of Yield, it is in fact a documentary that includes the rehearsals the band made in November 1997, before opening for Rolling Stones concerts at the end of the same month. It also features some interviews to all the band members, including Jack Irons, who was the drummer at that time.

The Blu-ray version of Single Video Theory will also feature the official Do The Evolution video for the first time in HD, directed by Todd McFarlane with Kevin Altieri.

Lately, Jeff Ament was interviewed in the podcast The Plug w/ Justin Jay, where he talked about Deaf Charlie and his non-profit organization Montana Pool Service (you can listen to the episode here).

Pearl Jam announced their opening act for the American shows in St.Paul and Ft. Worth and it is Deep Sea Diver, a pop band that formed in Seattle in 2009. The opener for the rest of the tour will be the Inhaler, U2’s Bono’s son band.

Lastly, at the link below you can listen to the soundtrack of the second season of The Bear, including some Pearl Jam and Eddie Vedder’s songs, like live versions of Animal, Come Back and the cover Throw Your Arms (Around Me) by Hunters & Collectors performed by Eddie Vedder and Neil Finn from Crowded House. The song was originally released in 2012 as part of a tribute album titled Crucible – the songs of Hunters & Collectors.
