Pearl Jam

It’s hard to believe that the last time Pearl Jam played in Pensacola, FL was on March 9, 1994. People were clamoring to get tickets making the concert, held at the Pensacola Civic Center, the fastest selling show in the history of the city. The concert marked the one-year anniversary of the murder or Dr. Gunn and was held as a benefit for his family. Concert goers described the Rock for Choice event as an experience unlike anything Pensacola had seen, representing a collective feeling of love and support from the Gulf Coast community. As Rolling Stone stated, “when Eddie Vedder opened Pearl Jam’s set with a plaintive, acoustic version of Tom Petty’s “I Won’t Back Down,” he could barely be heard above the earsplitting screams.” Eighteen years after such a historic event, DeLuna Fest is thrilled to have Pearl Jam return to Pensacola.
