Hearts and Thoughts
Last night, me and Jonas and our good friends Emily and Justin went to the Ryman to see Eddie Vedder(lead singer of Pearl Jam). He has been going on a solo tour this summer around various places and due to the nature of the Ryman he played two nights. Upon coming onto the stage and the curtains rolling back revealing his set of various backgrounds and movie setups, Eddie proceeded to bow humbly and simply say into the microphone just as if we were his long lost family or friends," It has been too long." He played for an hour and came back with an anchore of duets with Liam Phinn and 2 other guests. And then he finished with "Big Hard Sun" from Into The Wild soundtrack. The setting was intimate and simple and incredibly perfect for Eddie and his persona. We are lucky enough to be in the ten club and got to get 4th row floor seats and if you know the Ryman you know the pews are curved so we were actually on stage far right and had a perfect view. He is a beautiful man :) and Jonas gt to actually hold both of Eddie's hands when he was goin down the line at the end. My husband can now die happy. Only next step would be to eat a meal with him. And maybe i could cook. ;) It was an awesome night with good friends and great music.
