Music: Pearl Jam Fan Gets Dying Wish To See Them Live


Pearl Jam Fan Gets Dying Wish To See Them Live

A music fan got his dying wish to see Pearl Jam this week, but it wasn’t easy. Roland Mandel bought tickets to see the Seattle Rockers in Berlin in 2019, but the show was canceled due to the pandemic. Since then Roland was diagnosed with ALS and is currently in a wheelchair, which almost got in the way of him seeing the show.

 

Turns out the venue, the Berlin Waldbühne, had only 12 wheelchair seats and they had all been taken. Roland doesn’t have much time left, so his friends started an online campaign using the hashtag #RVMforRoland trying to get him to the show (RVM is for “Rearview Mirror” his favorite song). They also wrote the concert organizer, the lessee of the venue and the Berlin Commissioner for the Disabled, and more.

 

The campaign worked, and Roland got to watch the show Tuesday from the side of the stage and was even brought out on stage by the band. "He should also experience this special sight," frontman Eddie Vedder told the crowd. "He worked his a** off to be here tonight.”
