PEARL JAM Offers Earplugs “So You Won’t Go Deaf In The Future”
Just last week AC/DC's Brian Johnson announced that he won't be able to perform any of the band’s upcoming shows, or any show ever again, due to severe hearing damage that could leave him permanently deaf.
Peral Jam have so joined forces with MusiCares to provide earplugs to all attendees of their upcoming tour (starting April 8 in Florida U.S.)
As Alternative Nation reports, a MusiCares table will be set up at each of Pearl Jam’s spring tour dates. For a small suggested donation, fans can grab a pair of earplugs housed in a limited edition PJ X MusiCares carrying case.
“Don’t be careless and lazy at loud rock shows or cranking tunes through an old Walkman like I was thirty years ago,” said bassist Jeff Ament in a statement, “(but boy did it all sound good). Wear hearing protection or you’ll end up with a 1.5k ring in both ears every night when you go to bed or worse when you are trying to enjoy the serene quiet of an empty desert or forest, again like me.”
