The Pearl Jam "Official" Bootlegs are a large, continually growing series of live albums by the American alternative rock band Pearl Jam. Pearl Jam noted the desire of fans to own a copy of the shows they attended and the popularity of bootleg recordings. The band had been open in the past about allowing fans to make amateur recordings,  and these "official bootlegs" were an attempt to provide a more affordable and better quality product for fans.
Pearl Jam's official Pearl Jam - 23 6 00 - Hallenstadion - Zurich program was begun for the band's Binaural Tour. Every No More - Ciecmate - Limbo was released in a cardboard sleeve containing two CDswith the exception of the 72nd and final show on the tour, November 6, at KeyArena in Seattle Pearl Jam - 23 6 00 - Hallenstadion - Zurich, Washington.
The Seattle show was released as a triple-disc set, and was the highest-charting of the series, peaking at number 98 on the Billboardand was called an "essential live document" by Allmusic.
They had to be ordered through the band's official website, and were mailed out. The bootlegs were made available within a week of each show date. The Pearl Jam - 23 6 00 - Hallenstadion - Zurich College show was a three-hour, triple disc show, which vocalist Eddie Vedder vowed to make "the longest Pearl Jam show ever played.
InPearl Jam released Live at Benaroya Halland while it came in similar packaging to the bootlegs, it is not considered to be part of the series. Note: Number 53 in the series was to have been the band's show at the Riverbend Music Center in Cincinnati, Ohio, however the show was cancelled. Pearl Jam took a year-long touring break until the Vote for Change tour, but the band elected not to release bootlegs for the six shows from that tour. The band took yet another year off until a fall tour of Canada and South America.
For the first time, the bootlegs were MP3 -only, again only available through the band's official website. The music downloads were accompanied by pictures from individual shows. The MP3-only format expanded to include lossless FLAC format for the band's summer tour for its self-titled eighth album. The digital bootlegs were typically made available within 2—3 days of each show date.
The bootlegs were available through the band's official download website, which has since been discontinued. The band elected not to release official bootlegs for its European Tour. Official bootlegs are available for the band's U. Pearl Jam released bootlegs of shows from their Backspacer Tour exclusively on its website.
Bootlegs have also been made available for the South and North American as well as the Australian including one show in New Zealand and European tours. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The cover of the first release in the collection, 1 of the series, May 23, in Lisbon, Portugal.
