Is Pearl Jam coming to Wrigley Field?

Early Tuesday, the band posted a vague update on its official website, telling fans to #staytuned and follow along on Twitter. Not long after, the Chicago Cubs’ official Twitter handle chimed in with the hashtag.

@cubs: Ten. #StayTuned pic.twitter.com/eFXYXDGI.

The photo linked in the tweet was to Ron Santo’s jersey, also the number 10, as Cubs news site Bleacher Nation first pointed out. Depending on how much you believe in coincidence, "Ten" is also the title of Pearl Jam’s first album. The band's official Twitter also asked fans to share a poster from their 2006 world tour with My Morning Jacket.  

By 1:30 p.m., both the Cubs and Pearl Jam accounts hinted further, both sharing photos of Wrigley decked out with a stage and sound system. Pearl Jam noted it was “looking good!” and the Cubs commented “our diamond, our jewel,” a verbatim line from frontman Eddy Vedder’s 2008 team tribute “All the Way.”

A Cubs spokesperson indicated in an email Monday that he could not provide any information at this time.
