Pearl Jam 2022 Tour Reaction: Ep. 13 – Werchter
About the Episode
Episode Release Date: July 1st, 2022
We’d all circled this one when the tour was announced…June 30th. How would the band acknowledge what happened 22 years ago at Roskilde? They took the stage late in the evening and opened with back-to-back covers for the first time in nearly 30 years. John is joined by Dave JanTausch from livefootsteps.org to break down everything that happened at Rock Werchter 2022. We’ll talk about the politics of playing Whipping and Daughter, Ed’s speech before Long Road and the moment of silence that preceded it, and continue to put up missing notices for some Gigaton songs that seem to have disappeared. Plenty of stat talk for you stat nerds out there as well. Enjoy, and onward to Stockholm!
