Pearl Jam Show Notes 4/6/2013:

Ed changes the third “Oh…dear Dad…” in Release to “Oh dear Red…can you see this now…” He encourages the crowd to join in during Do the Evolution, calling out “C’mon! Louder than Buenos Aires!” After Corduroy, the crowd begins the “Olé” chant, and Ed asks the crowd “Como estas?” followed by “Estoy bien.” He adds “Chile, you can call me!” to Not For You, finishing the song off with the Modern Girl tag. He also pays a compliment to Chile, their pretty country and people.

Towards the end of Daughter, he asks Kille to turn the lights up and gets the crowd to join him for It’s O.K. by singing “Esta bien” and proceeds to sing the rest of it in Spanish, again asking them to be louder than Buenos Aires. Elderly Woman starts with “una, dos, tres, una, dos, tres” and they deliver a beautiful rendition with Stone sounding perfect on the acoustic. After the break, Ed says it’s a special day and drapes the Chilean flag over Mike’s shoulders, and they sing Happy Birthday to him. Ed recognises a guy in the crowd who had joined them on stage previously, and invites him up on stage to play with them again. The fan, Juan Pablo, joins them, Ed asks him not to break his guitar, and they bust out Sonic Reducer. Perry Farrell enters for Rockin’ in the Free World, on the tambourine and back up vocals, while fireworks go off in the background. Josh Homme also puts in an appearance for the last bit of RITFW while Eddie scans the crowd with a set of binoculars. Perry calls out “Pearl Jam!” as Mike plays the opening riff for Yellow Ledbetter. Ed closes the night wishing the audience well in his broken Spanish.

I first heard Pearl Jam played at a school social event in 1994 when I was 15 and it blew my mind. It was a song from Vs and I was instantly hooked. My first show was in 1998 but seeing them play Tremor Christ live in Boston in 2018 was truly a twenty year dream come true. Pearl Jam is not just a band, they are a way of life.
