 June 2001

 

                    On June 5th, the fans who died during Pearl Jam's June 30th show at last year's Roskilde Festival in Denmark have been commemorated with a memorial on the festival grounds, according to festival founder Leif Skov. Nine birch trees have been planted in a circle around a large stone, a simple remembrance of the nine lives lost when fans surged toward the stage on muddy ground. On June 15th, "Pearl Jam: Touring Band 2000" DVD and VHS, released May 1st, was certified Platinum with sales of over 100,000 units. "Touring Band 2000" was also #1 on the Soundscan Music Video DVD chart for the five weeks after its release.
