Pearl Jam To Shun Future Festivals

Pearl Jam does not plan to play at festivals in the future. We'll never play another festival again," says Pearl Jam leader Eddie Vedder. Playing Roskilde in 2000, where nine fans were trampled to death, "was a decision based on making a little bit of money, and that's something we have to live with."

On Pearl Jam's new album "Riot Act," the song "Love Boat Captain" is a tribute to those who perished at the concert: "Lost nine friends we'll never know/two years ago today/and if our lives become too long/would it add to our regret?"
