Pearl Jam 2022 Tour Reaction: Ep. 11 – Imola
About the Episode
Episode Release Date: June 26th, 2022
Episode Guests: Patrick Boegel
We’re starting to get used to this show thing happening every other day again, yeah? The fourth show of the European leg transpired in Imola, Italy, home of the Formula 1 racing event Emilia Romagna Grand Prix. The show was off to the races from the start.
A lot of topics to be discussed from the appreciation of no covers happening in this set, Even Flow’s consistent placement outside of the “Even Flow spot”, the first appearances of songs from Avocado and Riot Act in 2022 and Mike McCready’s psychopathic performance of Black.
We’ll also spend time discussing the current state of America and the decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. Ed, never shy about his opinion on pro-choice, brought the topic into the set and made it one of the themes for the night. The two things that stood out from him expressing frustration were his aggression during the ‘sitting bullshit’ verse, and the W.M.A. tag off of Daughter. Challenging, but important topics needed to be brought up as our country spins into turmoil.
No John for this one, so Randy is joined by Hallucinogenic Recipe co-host Patrick Boegel! Enjoy the ramblings!
