A crowdsourced campaign aimed at bringing Pearl Jam to play Forest Hills Stadium in Queens has spurred some backlash from fans of the iconic grunge outfit.

Dan Sheffer, who created the campaign, launched the project on Nov. 5 -- but not without opposition from fellow fans. He says he’s been approached by a nonprofit dedicated to grunge-rock musicians, which is asserting that the concert should be held closer to Pearl Jam’s hometown in Seattle.

“They were trying to almost strong-arm us into giving up,” said Sheffer.

Sheffer didn’t release the name of the nonprofit that contacted him, but the Pearl Jam-focused nonprofit, Wishlist Foundation, posted on a message board that it is also starting a crowdsourced campaign, which will aim to get the rockers to play a gig at the Gorge Amphitheater in George, Washington. The Wishlist Foundation organizers said, however, they are not trying to interfere with Sheffer’s campaign.

Sheffer admits that his campaign was inspired by a recent crowdfunded campaign, which successfully got the Foo Fighters to play a concert in Richmond, Va. in September.

Anyone who donates a minimum of $80 will receive a ticket to the concert, should it reach its goal of $100,000. If it doesn’t reach that threshold, donators will be reimbursed in full. So far the campaign has received more than $45,000 in donations. Interested? Get details here.
