Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder may not be pleased with Oklahoma City’s not recent acquirement of the Seattle Supersonics (he “mentioned” it at a recent concert in Charlotte, N.C.), but it should do little to divide Pearl Jam fans with loyalties to the OKC Thunder from the band’s concert Saturday. Best known for its days as a Seattle grunge band in the early ‘90s, Pearl Jam plays the Chesapeake Energy Arena – home of Oklahoma’s lionized NBA team – at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 16. All passions and team hurts aside, the concert should continue the success of Pearl Jam’s giant fall tour in support of its brand new album Lightning Bolt. Tickets are $69, available at www.chesapeakearena.com. The arena is located at 100 W. Reno Ave., in downtown Oklahoma City. We’re not holding anything against Eddie. We just hope he can handle with all the Thunder fandom he’ll encounter when he arrives.
