Michael D. Clark of the Houston Chronicle reviewed the Pearl Jam show at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion last Sunday, and unlike their opener, the group was careful to steer clear of criticism of President Bush. “People thought that we were coming to Houston to stir up some trouble,” said Vedder midway through the concert. “It’s crazy. It just doesn’t feel like the United States of America.” The comment drew shouts from a vocal minority, though it was hard to tell if the negativity was directed at Vedder or the war. Clear Channel Entertainment reported no requests for refunds from the crowd of approximately 11,500. Chron.com has since removed the article.
