Pearl Jam Show Notes 3/13/2018:

The 2018 tour kicks off with an arena show in Chile, serving as a warmup for the Lollapalooza gigs that would follow. The band takes the crowd on an early tour of almost every album, with the first 8 songs coming from 8 different albums. Ed holds the last line in Low Light for a long time to the delight of the crowd. Animal gets the entire floor pogoing and singing along. An extended jam leads into Love Boat Captain. Corduroy has the new middle section and builds to a stellar ending, tons of energy. Ed speaks to the crowd in Spanish, saying that even after all this time his Spanish is still “shit.” Before Mike takes over Even Flow, Ed exclaims “Vamos, Miguel, vamos!” The crowd is on fire during Given to Fly. Eruption is introduced as “a gift for you from Mike…and Eddie.” Can’t Deny Me is debuted, having been released just 3 days prior, and is dedicated (in Spanish) to the Parkland survivors, and Emma Gonzalez in particular.

Rare appearance of Around the Bend to begin the encore. After Come Back, a roadie brings out a cake for Jeff’s birthday and ends up getting it in his own face, Jeff only just taking a finger of it. Ed takes a couple of pieces and tosses them into the crowd. Boom and Mike duel back and forth many times during the Crazy Mary jam. Cool moment as the crowd sings the guitar intro to Better Man along with Ed. Mike absolutely wails on an 8+ minute Black and Comfortably Numb. Ed takes a Chilean flag with “Pearl Jam” written on it and drapes it over his monitors during Alive. Last Kiss is for the back, with Ed up on the drum riser behind Matt and the rest of the band making their way behind the stage during the song. After a closing Indifference, Ed thanks the crowd “for being a great wave…we got to surf.”

I was obsessed with Pearl Jam in the early 90's, and then became a collector of their live bootlegs in the 2000's. I’ve seen them 12 times in 8 different states. I’m continuously blown away by their ability to create transcendent moments in concert. I owe them for my love of vinyl, live music, and so much more. I’m happy to have the podcast and this website as an outlet for that obsession.
