my first tour was 1998 at 16 years old so i was a bit young (at least to go by myself) for the 1996 tour. i don't even know if i was really aware of pearl jam still crushing it at that point because as an idiot 14 year old i didn't remember they had put an album out that year (thanks dickhole friends who later said No Code "sucked").

so tell me, what do you remember best about that tour? what shows really stand out? unique performances or Ed speeches?

This was my first time seeing them and my first ‘tour’.
Cork and Dublin. A month after no code was released.
Cork was a weird cool setlist and the venue a little shed in rural county cork. Only about 3000 people there. I was only 20. Went down alone and Didn’t arrange transport home. So police told me I could sleep in the sheds at the back of the venue :) wandered around the venue and bands dressing room at like 2am. Got the pearl jam dressing room sign off their door. Didn’t think to look for pics. Ah well.
Met Mike and Ed in Dublin the next day. Ed took my request and played State the next night. Two great shows.
Wish the 96 shows would get properly released. They had something strange but good going on that tour.

My first show was also in 1996 - Randall’s Island 1 with John Popper playing the harmonica on Even Flow. It was also my first proper concert. I went from being a pretty big fan to becoming a huge fan that night. It changed everything. It also poured rain.

I remember I was more excited to see the Fastbacks open than Ben Harper, but ended up blown away by Ben Harper and becoming a huge fan after that.

Things that amuse me now that were something back then: my friends going crazy over them playing Corduroy and Even Flow and no one recognizing that new song in the set (Leaving Here). Fun night.

Didn't see any of these shows, but have listened to a lot of them and they're great. Hamburg and Barcelona are dream vault releases for me.

I was at the Augusta, ME show. Crazy small venue for a band that big. One of the best concerts I've ever been to.

hartford was my first ever show. had lawn tickets, but a friend i went with had a friend who worked security at the meadows, and he let us in at the top of the pavilion. as soon as ed played the opened chords to long road, everyone outside the pavilion gates rushed to get in. within a few minutes pepper spray filled the area surrounding us. one guy made it over the gate, only to have a cop pull on his leg, and the guy face-planted on a seat near me.

i had no idea what a Daughter tag was prior to that show - as i'd yet to start collecting any bootlegs. so when they went into the tag, i thought they were going to into play WMA, and i lost my shit.

initially, i felt bad about taking someone else's seat, but i got so locked in with it being my first show, i got over it. sorry not sorry.

but seriously, if i took your seat, i'm sorry. please find it in your heart to forgive me and my stupid fandom.

There’s a pretty decent recording is this, right?

The AUD MIX of this show sounds pretty damn good.

I remember watching a shitty VHS recording of the Toronto 96 show. There was this incredible version of jeremy where during the outro..."hoo hoo hoo hoo he he ho hoho" jack irons kind of stopped drumming and just hit the kick drum and cymbal crashes while the band kept hammering away....and then coming back in for a big finish.

I loved that.
