Pearl Jam Announces Let’s Play Two Documentary

In celebration of the Pearl Jam's sold out performances at Wrigley Field on Aug. 20 and 22, 2016 during the Chicago Cubs World Series championship season, Pearl Jam is set to release documentary film Let’s Play Two and accompanying soundtrack album. Let’s Play Two is directed by director/photographer Danny Clinch and produced by Monkeywrench Productions, Tourgigs Productions, Universal Music Publishing Group, Republic Records, FOX Sports and Major League Baseball in collaboration with Milkt Films and Polygram Entertainment.

With Chicago being a hometown to Eddie Vedder, Pearl Jam has forged a relationship with the city, the Chicago Cubs and Wrigley Field. From Ten to Lightning Bolt, the feature film shuffles through Pearl Jam’s ever-growing catalog of originals and covers -- spanning the band's 25-year career. Through the eyes of Danny Clinch and the voice of Pearl Jam, the film showcases the journey of the special relationship -- using the past and present of both the band and the Chicago Cubs through the music, the sweat and the eternal hopes of being both a Cubs fan and Pearl Jam fan.

“In my films and photographs, I love to explore the relationship between a band, their fans and the location,” Let’s Play Two director Danny Clinch explains. When it happens that the main characters of your film are Pearl Jam, the Chicago Cubs, their fans, and Wrigley Field during a historic moment, you know it’s going to be epic. Our instincts were correct to follow the story and it took us to a historic Game 7 of the World Series ending a 108 year drought for the Cubs. I have learned to welcome the unexpected and it always pays off if you’re ready for it.”

Serving as the film’s theatrical premiere, Ten Club will host special members-only screenings of Let’s Play Two at Metro in Chicago’s Wrigleyville neighborhood on Wednesday, Sept. 27 and Thursday, Sept. 28. In partnership with Abramorama, Let’s Play Two will then enjoy week-long worldwide theatrical engagements in select markets starting on Sept. 29 in addition to special one night only theatrical events beginning on Oct. 3. The soundtrack and home video of the film will be released globally by Republic Records, with the soundtrack released simultaneous to the film on September 29th and home video following with a release on Nov. 17. The soundtrack is available for pre-order now at pearljam.com and will be available for pre-order via all digital retailers on Aug. 25. The home video will be available for pre-order on Sept. 29. The film’s U.S. television premiere airs on FS1 on Friday, Oct. 13 immediately following Game 1 of the American League Championship Series.
