Pearl Jam 2022 Tour Reaction: Ep. 4 – Oakland, CA, Night 1
About the Episode
Episode Release Date: May 14th, 2022
This was originally supposed to be one episode combining both nights in Oakland, but given everything that happened, there is no way that we can wait this long to react to it! Obviously, this is the story of the tour right here, and potentially the story of the year when the final chapter is written.
With Covid-19 cases still rampant in California, there was actually a bit of a super spreader at the LA show, many fans returned home with the disease that’s been ruining our lives for over two years. And sadly, it got to Matt Cameron too.
When the band opens up with Rockin In The Free World, it’s a total shocker. But then we get a glimpse of Josh behind the kit instead of Matt. That is clearly the biggest storyline of the show and we’ll dig down deep into all of it including Richard Stuverud’s role and the wonderful moment with Josh Arroyo.
