Pearl Jam Show Notes 11/11/2015:

Release is powerful in the 2 spot tonight, as another loud and boisterous South American crowd is involved right from the beginning. An early Do the Evolution keeps the energy going, and there’s plenty of chanting throughout Corduroy. After a very on-point Even Flow, Ed salutes Mike, saying “when he was born from his mother, you know where, he immediately threw his first guitar pick…and when Matt was born, he had his first pair of drumsticks, which must have been very uncomfortable for his mother, Helen…” A very fast Lukin has Ed grasping to keep up the pace. Sirens ends with a speech about records being the very first love of everyone on stage, leading to the duo of Let the Records Play and Spin the Black Circle. Matt outdoes himself during the RVM jam, just an incredible display of prowess. Rearviewmirror ends the blistering first set and gives the energetic crowd a little respite. Hard to Imagine starts a little rocky, but blazes after the first verse. Wishlist starts with the crowd singing in sync with the song. After Glorified G, played for the first time since 2013, Ed speaks in Portuguese to the crowd about how it has been exactly four years since the last time they played there. The crowd also sings happy birthday to Jill Vedder in Portuguese. Ed is handed a phone and the crowd starts chanting “Jill, Jill, Jill!” Pink Floyd’s Comfortably Numb is debuted after the second break, and it’s tailor-made for Mike to solo into the stratosphere, which he does. Given to Fly is dedicated to Matt, Jeff, and Diane, wherever they are at. Alive includes a “Go Cubs” in the middle from Ed. To cap off the evening, Ed elicits one last “Ole” chant from this fantastic crowd and quotes Smile, saying “…miss you already…love love love.”

From the time I was handed Ten to listen to on my 7th grade field trip I’ve been hooked! Finally saw my first show at Alpine in ‘98 and the live show itch begun! Can’t wait for more shows around the bend, and a shoutout to my kids Charlotte Pearl and Grant Edward!
