Pearl Jam Show Notes 2/2/2014:

After Animal, Ed, appearing to focus on someone specific in the crowd, says to not be pointing down on someone else or the show will stop, reminding the crowd to take care of themselves and to mind their manners, leading into…Mind Your Manners. Mike has a unique solo on Lightning Bolt. This show was full of dedications, the first of which is a toast to some of the other bands playing on the same bill, Arcade Fire and Primus. Someone is holding up a copy of Ten in the crowd, so Ed introduces Deep by saying this is “the opposite of shallow.” Prior to Unthought Known, he dedicates the song to a young man he met who went by Edwin IV, mentioning he had never met an Ed IV, only Ed III, including himself. After Jeremy, he mentions a school shooting that occurred in Australia several years ago, and the country taking quick steps to put laws in place to prevent such a tragedy from occurring again, very different than in the U.S. Satan’s Bed sounds great, with the band locked in. Staccato, harmonic intro to RVM, and the jam soars, Stone and Jeff playing well together, and Ed adds the “forgive/forget” lines.

After the break, Ed brings a couple on stage, toasting their love as an example of what love should be, and plays a tender, acoustic Throw Your Arms Around Me. Then, he leads the crowd in singing Happy Birthday to Boom, leading into a long Crazy Mary, with Mike and Boom dueling back and forth playfully. Mike lets it all go on the Black solo, and after a short We Belong Together tag, Ed adds “…nothing like young love…” Win Butler (Arcade Fire) joins for Rockin’ to close out the night.

October 1, 1994 sold me on my Pearl Jam fandom. Coming to the stage and playing Walking the Cow floored me. Not only was I sold on Pearl Jam when I first saw them almost a year earlier in 1993, seeing them come out and open with a pretty rare cover was just incredible. How many bands out there change their setlists as often as Pearl Jam, and show their fans new music experiences constantly. This band! This band!
