Pearl Jam 2022 Tour Reaction: Ep. 5 – Oakland, CA, Night 2
About the Episode
Episode Release Date: May 16th, 2022
Oakland will forever live on as an extremely important city in Pearl Jam history. These back to back nights are already going down in history as one of those pinpoint moments that are part of the band’s continued evolution.
Unlike night 1’s surprises and spontaneity, night 2 felt like a polished night full of surprises. They got the first show jitters out of the way, and now that both Josh and Stuv have a good feel for what they were doing, the band was able to feel comfortable going a little bit out of their comfort zone. The stretch from Throw Your Hatred Down until Brain Of J is something that you’ll maybe never hear from the band again. Dissident! W.M.A.! We’re gonna talk about how this might be the best set we’ve seen on this tour so far and how Richard Stuverud was the star of the show.
And also, Rearviewmirror and Crazy Mary make their tour debuts! Hot damn! There’s so much, so just listen in and enjoy. Wait until the end to hear from Given To Live beneficiary Reece, who it took two years for him to get to his dream concert.
