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.
