On 7 May 2021, American rock band Pearl Jam released Deep, a digital archive of 5,404 live tracks from 186 shows performed between May 2000 and July 2014. Deep was available to fan-club members on the band’s website, presented in playlists such as “Best Political Songs”, “Best Covers” and “Pearl Jam for Dummies”.

Deep features material taken from live shows staged between 23 May 2000 (at the Estádio do Restelo in Lisbon, Portugal – the first date on the European leg of the Binaural Tour) and 8 July 2014 (at the First Direct Arena in Leeds, UK – the penultimate date on the European leg of the Lightning Bolt Tour).

The tracks are available to Ten Club members and are searchable by year or city, complete with information about how many times each song has been played live and their first and most recent live performances. A “Custom Setlist Generator” also allows fans to compile and stream their own playlists – presented in the “instantly recognizable” handwriting of Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder.

Deep is described as a “Live Bootleg Immersive Experience” that spans two decades of the band’s tour history. Since forming in Seattle in 1990, Pearl Jam have built their reputation on the quality of their live shows, many of which have been released as albums over the years. Deep went some way to appeasing fans who missed out on the Gigaton Tour (in support of 2020’s Gigaton, their 11th studio album), which had to be rescheduled owing to the COVID-19 pandemic.
