Let's Play Two is a documentary film that chronicles Pearl Jam's legendary performances at Wrigley Field during the Chicago Cubs historic 2016 season. With Chicago being a hometown to Eddie Vedder, Pearl Jam has forged a relationship with the city, the Chicago Cubs and Wrigley Field that is unparalleled in the world of sports and music. From Ten to Lightning Bolt, the documentary film shuffles through Pearl Jam's ever-growing catalog of originals and covers - spanning the band's 25-year career. Through the eyes of renowned director/photographer Danny Clinch and the voice of Pearl Jam, the film showcases the journey of this special relationship.
In the BluRay edition it can be found the incident during "Lukin" in which Eddie Vedder stops mid-song to call out a fan who was putting his hands in a woman's face. There's a hidden lightning bolt among the extras that will take you to this video. See more »
This here is a rather interesting documentary that tries to do two things at once. One is to show repsect to Chicago as Pearl Jam does a couple shows at Wrigley Field. The second thing is to show off the historic run that the Chicago Cubs did that season to win their first World Series since 1908.
I've heard some people say that Pearl Jam and Major League Baseball just mixed the two things in order to sell more copies but I don't buy that at all. I'd certainly believe that if the documentary was a bad one but it isn't and in fact it works perfectly well with one another. Sure, Pearl Jam played several gigs at Wrigley without the Cubs winning the World Series but in 2016 both happened at the same time and it led to this documentary.
The concert footage is great as you'd expect as are the clips from the Cubs season. To me both of those things were entertaining but the key to this film is the relation that both have to the city of Chicago. We get to hear from mega-fans of both as they discuss their love and passion for not only Pearl Jam but also the Cubs. Of course, Eddie Vedder himself was born and raised in Chicago and is a major Cubs fan so we also get to hear from him about what the city and team means.
LET'S PLAY TWO is certainly a nice tribute to the city and shows its low to the Cubs as well as Pearl Jam.
