Pearl Jam 2022 Tour Reaction: Ep. 10 – Zurich
About the Episode
Episode Release Date: June 24th, 2022
We’re back to react! The tour moves ahead to day number 3 as they plant their non-carbon footprint on Zurich, Switzerland. Follow up on a Berlin show that had its moments, but certainly some causes for concern, the band came back with 20 songs here and a little bit more of a blend of deeper fan favorites in their catalog. Animal, Present Tense, In Hiding and Smile all represented a nice change, and the deeper Vs. cuts in the Daughter tag were a nice surprise.
But there are still discussions to be had. There’s still a lack of Gigaton, there’s still an entire chunk of 2000s records that haven’t been represented, and while some fans may be getting antsy, we try to figure out a reason why this may be the case.
We’ll also spend a little time discussing the fan situation that happened during Animal, the opener streak being broken, a handful of songs getting cut for the set, and the tremendously large amount of Ten songs mixed in. Enjoy this, because we do!
