Seattle - Twelve years ago, Pearl Jam performed a rare acoustic show for MTV as part of the "Unplugged" series. Although the performance was never officially released, it continues to be one of the band's most bootlegged shows. Now Pearl Jam fans can satiate their acoustic appetites with the band's first ever full-length, mostly acoustic live show on a double disc CD entitled "Live at Benaroya Hall October 22, 2003". "Live at Benaroya Hall October 22, 2003" features the band's 2+ hour, sold-out performance on October 22, 2003 at the intimate 2,500-seat venue which marked the first live performance of Pearl Jam's Golden Globe nominated song "Man of the Hour" as well as acoustic covers of Bob Dylan's "Masters of War", the Ramones' "I Believe in Miracles" & Johnny Cash's "25 Minutes to Go."
