Pearl Jam have released the trailer for their upcoming concert movie 'Let's Play Two', filmed last year.

Recorded in August 2016, the film captures the band performing a career-spanning set at Wrigley Field in Chicago, home of their beloved Chicago Cubs who famously ended their 108-year drought to win the world series.

Director Danny Clinch is the man behind the project: "In my films and photographs, I love to explore the relationship between a band, their fans and the location. When it happens that the main characters of your film are Pearl Jam, the Chicago Cubs, their fans, and Wrigley Field during a historic moment, you know it's going to be epic.

Explaining how the documentary manages to capture footage of the band cheering on the team in the lead-up to the Cubs' shock victory, Clinch continues "Our instincts were correct to follow the story and it took us to a historic Game 7 of the World Series ending a 108-year drought for the Cubs. I have learned to welcome the unexpected and it always pays off if you’re ready for it."

Watch the euphoric trailer below:

A week of worldwide theatrical screenings will begin on September 29th before the film gets a home entertainment release on November 17th. The concert will also be released as a live album on September 29th, with 2CD and 2LP vinyl editions confirmed and available for pre-order now. Further details of the Blu-ray/DVD edition are expected to be revealed in the coming weeks.
