Pearl Jam Festival Weekend, Reissues and Documentary - Too much with too little

So Pearl Jam's manager Kelly Curtis hinted last month of a possible Pearl Jam party weekend sometime this summer. Somewhere in the middle of the country. I of course like many Pearl Jam fans. Got super excited.  But now if this thing goes through. Will I be able to go? I've tried to go to at least one Pearl Jam show since I started going in 2000.  I've been a fan since 1991.  I've never been to a festival. So that's something I'm looking forward to. But again will I have the money to go. You bet as soon as I heard the news I started saving my pennies. But as many Pearl Jam fans know. 2011 will be a great year to be one of us.  Along with a possible Pearl Jam party weekend. There will be reissues of their 2nd and 3rd albums Vs and Vitalogy. Which will include bonus tracks and live shows. As they did in 2009 with their debut album Ten. Plus a Cameron Crowe directed documentary of the band's 20 year career. Plus an accompanying book. All this and I'm still out of work. But I will try. I haven't gotten any acting opportunities. None of my applications have gotten me anywhere. I've been good at saving in the past. So I'm on my way. But will I make it. Or possibly hope they webcast it. Which is the second best thing to going. Well I'll let you know in the next few months. If I get to share the experience with my fellow fans of this great American rock band.
