Pearl Jam announced today (August 21) the release of the documentary film Let’s Play Two and accompanying soundtrack album, in celebration of the band’s sold-out performances at Wrigley Field on August 20 and 22, 2016 during the Chicago Cubs historic World Series championship season. The film is directed by renowned director/photographer Danny Clinch.

With Eddie Vedder growing up in the nearby college town of Evanston, Pearl Jam has forged a relationship with the city, the Chicago Cubs and Wrigley Field. Via the announcement: “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. The film uses 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.”

Pearl Jam were part of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s Class of 2017.

“In my films and photographs, I love to explore the relationship between a band, their fans and the location,”  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.”
