That's why you don't worry about how other people feel about shows you are at. If you have a good time, that's all that matters. Who gives a shit if some anonymous internet assholes think one show is better than the other? 99% of them weren't even there. YOU were. If you enjoyed yourself, then job well done, Pearl Jam.

This is basically why this forum exists. The rogue element of the fan base, more interested in each experience vs bragging rights of who was on the rail for what was agreed on to be the superior show.

This forum just has a different set of things it is obsessive/precious about. The main distinction between the boards is that our stupid shit is usually articulated a bit better

I like to see how excited the band gets to play with these other guys. Both No Surrender and Driven to Tears sounded great.

They were enormously excited the whole show (I couldn't see Stone--I'm sure he was the exception). There was this palpable sense of gratitude and appreciation for the fact that they still get to do this.

Nice clips - love that Sting just walked out unannounced.



Bad. fucking. ass.

Now that's a cover that should be in the regular rotation.

Stone appeared to be having most fun during leather man. True story.

Also a very wonderful version of present tense. Ed maintained his cool the entire song. And a special all or none treat for me

I personally would have hated this setlist, but I get why they went with it.

Just watched that Driven to Tears video. That kicked all sorts of ass.

there was one unnecessary curse, but not in the really annoying place. I was so proud of him

Also, I was totally unaware that they played the man trilogy as a thing. I just remember being disappointed when he started leatherman but thinking it was a pretty good version all the same (I was also not crazy about getting all or none or garden, and stone seemed to stutter at their starts, but they were okay).

It was the end of the night and it was an intense evening, but I got a little bit of solidarity tears when the lights went up during the 'don't cry' part of baba

No way, I actually really like All or None. Garden is not one of my favorites off Ten but I like that I have now heard all of Ten live so Im ok with it. It was fun singing the chorus the song is just a little long for me
