Episode 40: St. Louis, MO – 10/11/2000
About the Episode
This episode we’ll talk about the St. Louis show that occurred during the time of filming for the Touring Band 2000 DVD and what most people remember from that compilation is a moment that came from this show. Eddie sees a woman named Kimberly Rae Schaefer interpreting sign language on the side of the stage and decides to invite her up to do a song so the entire crowd can see her sign during a performance of Given To Fly. It’s one of the more heartwarming moments in the band’s history that’s remembered fondly to this day.
We’ll also tap into Matt Cameron channeling his inner Jack Irons as he was still transitioning a bit style-wise at the time. Versions of Hail, Hail and In My Tree sound as they were originally intended to, but his performance on Parting Ways ends up being what steals the show.
