PEARL JAM AND DANNY CLINCH CELEBRATE THE BAND’S LEGENDARY
WRIGLEY FIELD PERFORMANCES AND HISTORIC 2016 CHICAGO CUBS SEASON WITH DOCUMENTARY FILM "LET’S PLAY TWO"
Pearl Jam is set to release documentary film Let’s Play Twoand accompanying soundtrack album. 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 a hometown 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, the feature film shuffles through Pearl Jam’s ever-growing catalog of originals and covers -- spanning the band's 25-year career. Through the eyes of Danny Clinch and the voice of Pearl Jam, the film showcases the journey of the 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 fan 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 Twodirector Danny Clinch explains. “When it happens that the main characters of your film are Pearl Jam, the Chicago Cubs, their fans, and 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. I have learned to welcome the unexpected and it always pays off if you’re ready for it.”
