Pearl Jam and the Red States

So the word in the underground is that Pearl Jam, for the last 4 years, has largely avoided the "red states". Now that a Democrat is in office, will they start hitting those states again? They haven't been to Texas (George Bush's home state) since 2003. For the previous 2 elections, they were strong supporters of Ralph Nader, but were oddly quiet during the most recent campaign season. Whether they supported Nader again, or Obama, they - Eddie Vedder in particular - must be happy that Bush is history.

Please, Eddie, Stone, Mike, Jeff, Matt, and Boom. Please come back to Texas. Over the past 5 years, I've gone to 6 shows. And I've had to be in the Democrat-heavy Northeast for EVERY EFFING SHOW. Come back to the red states again. We miss you.
