In an effort to make sense of the tragedy at the Roskilde Festival in June, Pearl Jam met with Danish authorities and discussed the matter during two days of meetings in West Palm Beach, Florida, on August 8 and 9.
Pearl Jam agreed to meet with Danish officials who were on a fact-finding mission to better determine what happened during the band's performance at the Roskilde Festival on June 30 that resulted in the death of 9 concertgoers (see "Pearl Jam Performance Struck By Tragedy").
After the discussions, members of the Danish police attended Pearl Jam's concert on August 9 at the Mars Music Amphitheater in West Palm Beach -- at the behest of the band's security staff -- in order to see various measures Pearl Jam uses at its own shows (see "Pearl Jam Calls For Further Investigation Into Roskilde").
"We are in agreement that we will all do everything possible
in an effort to identify all factors that may have contributed to the tragedies at the Roskilde Festival," Roskilde Police Commissioner Uffe Kornerup said in a statement. "[We] hope that we might learn ways in which tragedies of this nature can be avoided in the future."
Pearl Jam is currently touring behind its newest album, "Binaural," and is slated to play Memphis, Tennessee, on August 15.
