“There is one thing which has never changed: the joy of play­ing to­gether, whether in a small group or a big orches­tra. We are look­ing forward to bring­ing this joy again this year to your cin­ema. The pro­gramme will be very di­verse, re­flect­ing this spe­cial an­niver­sary. I do hope you will all join us for an un­for­get­table, mag­i­cal evening.”

Let’s Play Two is di­rected by renowned 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 home to Ed­die Ved­der, Pearl Jam has forged a re­la­tion­ship with the city, the Chicago Cubs and Wrigley Field that is un­par­al­leled in the world of sports and mu­sic.

From Ten to Light­ning Bolt, this fea­ture film shuf­fles through Pearl Jam’s ever-grow­ing cat­a­logue of orig­i­nals and cov­ers – span­ning the band’s 25-year ca­reer.

Through the eyes of Clinch and the voice of Pearl Jam, Let’s Play Two show­cases the jour­ney of that 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 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 Clinch ex­plains.

“When it hap­pens that the main char­ac­ters of your film are Pearl Jam, the Chicago Cubs and their fans, and they gather at 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.”

Formed af­ter the demise of Gos­sard and Ament’s pre­vi­ous band, Mother Love Bone, Pearl Jam broke into the main­stream with its de­but al­bum, Ten, in 1991. To date, the band has sold nearly 32 million records in the United States and an es­ti­mated 60 million world­wide.
