Pearl Jam 2022 Tour Reaction: Ep. 12 – Frankfurt
About the Episode
Episode Release Date: June 29th, 2022
Well that’s more like it! We’ve been doing these reaction episodes for the last week hoping that we would get some type of differentiation in setlists on this run. Memorable and surprising moments. In Frankfurt last night, all of our patience was rewarded! The opening song set the tone for the night, a massive surprise in Inside Job that hadn’t been opened with since touring for the self-titled record in 2006. We’ll talk about all of the build up that the moment had and how it opened up the gate for other songs that had yet to be played this year such as Last Exit, Fatal and In My Tree. We’ll take a deep dive on some of the rarities in this one and discuss their impact on the set. We’ll also chat about a relevant line in Corduroy, Mike McCready’s spotlight, Josh Klinghoffer soloing and the backend of Gigaton getting representation. Especially River Cross which finally escaped the cut (thank you organ wranglers for your service). It’s the first massive show of this tour, you won’t want to miss this discussion!
