Pearl Jam Show Notes 7/9/2022:

After Small Town, Ed says that they’ll try to play everything that they didn’t play last night. Someone passes out in the crowd due to the heat after Deep and there’s a short break while they are attended to. The Waiting On A Friend tag is extended, with lyrics. Following Garden, Ed gets very passionate talking about the recent active shooter alert incident with his wife and daughter in New York:

…it was a firework that went off in the crowd. And for other people to have these ‘freedoms’, of having a fuckin’ firearm…we’re giving up the freedom to walk out in the streets, to send our kids to school, to go to the movies, the library, the grocery store…

and continues, referencing the Highland Park shooting where a girl saw her mother get shot and had to run away to safety, pleading to address gun violence, adding

…if anyone doesn’t have empathy, or respect for the sanctity of life, their own and others, even their own…if they don’t have that, then that’s exactly the person that we DON’T want to have with a firearm in their possession…

Johnny Marr is brought on stage and takes the solo on an extended, epic version of Throw Your Hatred Down. Ed gives a nod to Josh after Dance of the Clairvoyants, saying he’s “elevated the intellect of the band.” During the songs when Josh isn’t playing, he has a camera and is taking pictures. Ed lets the crowd vote on whether Whipping or Not For You should be played next, and Not For You wins. Rats is another total surprise. Black has to be restarted, Stone had the wrong guitar. The first 16 songs of the set were not played the previous night, Porch ends the set and breaks the streak, still no sign of RVM anywhere. After the break, Ed dedicates River Cross to the people fighting for Ukraine. Johnny Marr returns for Baba, along with Andrew Watt, to close the show. Baba is extended, everyone on stage having a great time. The show closes with the crowd chanting “one more song, one more song…”

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.
