  • Wildcard-Search
    With the help of a so-called wildcard you can look for several search words, which have the same word beginning. If you search e.g. for "Typo*", the search will find everything that begins with "Typo" : Typo3, Typoscript, Typocode, Typo3user... etc.
  • Negative search
    If you do not want to find certain expressions in your search result, you can cause this with placing a hyphen in front. Terms containing this phrase are excluded from the search result.
  • Search for user
    It is possible to limit the search result on answers of certain users. In addition to the retrieval query attach still another "user:username" and find the results, which were written by this certain user. If the username could not be found this will be ignored.

The accident in 2000 occured on Friday the 30th of June. I took a look at Pearl Jam's tour calender, and noticed that nothing is planned for Friday the 2nd of July this year.

So maybe the festival has one last ace up their slieve and gives us a 10 year memorial concert with Pearl Jam. This would serve perfectly as closure of the 2000 accident, and signal that now it's time to move on.

Not sure but I think Pearl Jam has said that they will never play roskilde again because of the accident

I don't think neither families nor the festival wants to rip up such a tragic accident in the middle of a big happy festival. I think both parties have moved on, at least since the closure of the trial, some months ago.
And, as Odin points out, its true, that the Pearl Jam NEVER wants to return to Roskilde. I remember one of the bandmembers once said, that he was actually scared of, even if by accident, seeing the place once again.

I would love to see them some time, but it seems a bit distateful to put them back on the Orange Stage.

You have some good points here, and you've actually changed my mind. I don't want Pearl Jam at Roskilde. It does indeed seem distasteful. Cheers for the insight.

I disagree that it would be distasteful. I'm not talking about a concert ignoring the past. Indeed I am talking about a *memorial* concert. To recognise what happened ten years ago. To mark that it is a healed wound - not necessarily without scars though. Also there seems to be a feeling of a curse existing between the festival and Pearl Jam. It would be a night of reflection, and yes it would make people remember. But also it would signify that now is the time to move on. We should never forget what happened in the past, nor should we forget the lessons.

If you can get the families of the deceased and Pearl Jam to agree it's a healed wound then it would be fine, if not I agree with BIMB and The Jerky Lord.

Plus, what if Pearl Jam agreed to play Roskilde again with the blessing of the families and everyone was dandy about it and then something like that happened again? Roskilde would take a enormous hit from fans and media and Pearl Jam would probably never ever play Roskilde (dare I say Denmark) again and tell their band friends never to play Roskilde again either.

I agree with the people saying Pearl Jam shouldn't come!

Sorry, but that is a really bad argument. It wouldn't happen again at a Pearl Jam concert. I don't think that needs explaining why

I totally agree.

It would be a very uncomfortable concert. I don't see how it would be helping anyone if Pearl Jam plays. Pearl Jam is scared of the stage (understandable). People would not be happy but sad. And I don't think a concert would help people move on.
I absolutely love the band, and it would be nice to see them, but not because of a reason like that, and not if they didn't want to be there.

I for one wouldn't mind seing them at roskilde,.. let's face it, the accident was hardly the bands fault. however I do think it would be an awkward show. especially if it was an "anniversary show"

"Hey! remember 10 years ago? lets have some fun tonight.."
nope, doesn't work....

Okay - so we just disagree. I'm not neglecting what happened 10 years ago at all, actually I'm thinking I'm doing the exact opposite. As I Like Turtles points out, it would probably be a very uncomforting concert.
I think all parties have moved on in the way they could. No reason to go back.
