Pearl Jam Raffling Tickets To Raise Money For Montana Senator


Pearl Jam is raffling off tickets to an upcoming show in order to help raise money for Montana Senator Jon Tester's re-election campaign. Senator Tester will raffle off two on-stage reclining seats to Pearl Jam's September 30 show in Missoula, Montana. All fans have to do to enter the contest is donate to Senator Tester's re-election campaign via his website.

The winnings also include a dinner with Tester and Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament, VIP passes, and round-trip travel and hotel accommodations.

Ament, a Montana native, is a longtime friend of the Tester family and says he is happy to lend a hand in his re-election bid.

"Jon is the real deal," Ament told Rolling Stone. "He's a hardworking Montana farmer who has never forgotten who he works for or where he comes from."

The Missoula show will be Pearl Jam's only non-festival concert in 2012.
