Eddie Vedder
Plaza Theater
El Paso, TX
Nov 07, 2012
Show Set List



01. Waving Palms
02. Can’t Keep
03. Sleeping By Myself
04. Without You

(Ed says, “Let me say something I have never said before. “Hello El Paso”. Crowd cheers loudly. He goes on to say “What were we thinking it is beautiful here.” Some person in the audience has an ear splitting, shrill and annoying whistle. Ed comments that is loud and shrill and to save it for the end when the electric guitars come out.” He says he read a review that referred to Ed’s “happy ukulele” so he wants to play a sad song.)

05. Broken Heart

(Ed talks about learning some old ukulele songs from old music books. He just had the chords and lyrics and made up the rest. He wants to play a song that was written about the same time the theater was being erected. This leads to a few jokes about erections lasting 82 years.)

06. More Than You Know-(Rose, Eliscu, Youmans)
07. Wishlist
08. Elderly Woman Behind The Counter In A Small Town

(Ed tells of meeting some local musicians while in El Paso. The young band was asking him for help picking a name for their band. Ed mentions some options. The story digresses to story about playing in Utah that culminates with a pun on the name Norman. The story digresses further but works it’s way to religious freedom and freedom from religion, whatever you choose. He makes it back to band names and says he is going to play a song he hasn’t done in a long time by one of his favorite bands.)

09. I Believe In Miracles-(Ramones, Rey)

(Ed says “this building can do something special to help us get into the mood to go into the wild.” The plants that line the walls of the theater are then lit up and stars on the ceiling.)

10. Far Behind
11. Setting Forth (dedicate to a young boy in the audience named Jack)

(Ed wishes there were stars behind him as well. The curtains light up like stars in the night sky.)

12. Guaranteed
13. Rise-(stopped because mandolin was out of tune)
14. Just Breathe (does a quick Willie impersonation then plays the song straight)
15. Rise
16. Long Nights w/ Glen Hansard

(Ed asks to keep the campfire going for the next few songs. They were requests he got earlier in the day. This causes the audience to start loudly shouting out songs. One person shouts out for Ed to “Rock Out”. Ed suggests that if you are in the middle section of the theater it might be wise to take the opportunity to use the bathroom because it is going to be mellow for awhile. They continue to shout requests. Ed finally gets them settled down)

17. Needle & The Damage Done-(Young)

(More shouting. Requests and just general nonsense. Ed says that there is medication for that condition but a side effect is anal leakage. He then apologizes to young Jack, the boy he spoke to before for talking like that. Ed says this request was one that a person had made earlier in a calm fashion. He then laughs and tells the crowd he is just kidding.)

18. Off He Goes

(Ed says he wants to play an instrument that a man named Javier gave him. At first Ed thought Javier wanted Ed to sign it but Javier said it was a gift. Ed had never seen one. The instrument is an Epiphone Les Paul style ukulele. Ed says I tried to write a song with it.)

19. Les Paul Uke-(working title of new song with lyrics. Song has Les Paul uke, vocals, and beer case kick drum)
20. Unthought Known

(Ed says the next song was for a person named Vince who said that there were songs that were helping him get through some hard times)

21. Porch

Encore Break

(Ed talks about the gay marriage and pot legalization passing. He said that earlier he met a person who said they knew someone who could sing “Tonight, You Belong To Me” with him. He invites a woman to come up and try it. He notes that they have never practiced and he hasn’t met her. While she is brought backstage Ed continues telling a story about gay marriage and equality and what brought it home for him was when Bono asked him, “how do you condemn love?”)

22. I Am A Patriot-(Steven Van Zandt)
23. Immortality

(Ed says from about row 24? Let me introduce to you and to me, Melissa. Ed strums a little so she can get the key. She sings off mic a bit to work it out. She says she hopes she doesn’t screw up. Ed says she will do fine. She does.)

24. Tonight, You Belong To Me w/ Melissa Ibarra
25. Society w/ Glen Hansard-(Hannan)

(Ed talks about how much Johnny Ramone taught him about crafting a song by having him listen to older music that he missed out on. Like the song he is going to play with Glen. He says I wouldn’t be here and I wouldn’t be doing this with Glen if my “uncle” Johnny hadn’t given him a master class in music

26. Sleepless Nights w/ Glen Hansard-(Bryant, Bryant)
27. Falling Slowly w/ Glen Hansard-(Hansard, Irglová)

(Ed starts off talking about how there are some long drives on this tour and he wants to dedicate the next song to the people that are driving the gear and the crew. He gets interrupted by more shouting of request from the audience. He tells them that he can’t hear them because the band he is in requires that he stand in front of Matt Cameron’s incredibly loud and powerful drums. He then talks about the rest of the band how the music that they love to play sound best really loud which is why he can’t hear what the people are shouting. The shouting continues. Ed says “another trick is to just wait until I hear a request for the song I was already planning on playing. Someone shouts “Rearviewmirror” Ed says “That’s it!” and plays...)

28. Open All Night-(Springsteen)
29. The End

(Ed had heard that a while ago there were plans to tear down the theater. He said he would like to thank the people that prevented that from happening. It is important to keep beautiful places like this around. He also thanks the contents of the building (audience)

30. Arc

Encore Break

31. Hard Sun w/ Glen and audience members-(Peterson)

    I'm still kicking myself for not going to this show! I had hoped he would play Arc in Albuqueurque (but of course my mind went blank when he asked for requests). Lucky El Paso audience all around! :)

  • Sold-out show. The vibe was great. Eddie loved the Plaza....its his kind of venue. He had not practiced with the chick in the audience but she had practiced the song herself prior to the show. I think her boyfriend was a member of the band Eddie met earlier that day (how did they manage?). Alot of diehard fans scattered around, a good mix of young and old.
    It would be awesome to see Chris Cornell in the same venue in the future!

    Eddie was telling us that he met some local musicians that asked him what a good name for theyr band would be. He proceeded by sharing with us a couple names he came up with, in which the last band name he mentioned was the name THE NORMANS. He then started sharing a story in which he went to Utah and was at a bar or something like that and started asking ppl what theyr name was. He kept getting randon, nomal names over and over. Then he proceeded by saying he was confused because he had been told that there was a bunch of Normans in Utah..... Im assuming he missunderstood MORMONS lol..... he then proceeded with playinga song from one of the greatest rock names of all time... THE RAMONES :D
  • This was my first EV concert and i have to say it was an awesome experience. You could tell that eddie really loved the building and it showed when he played. The show was pretty long, 30-song, 2-hour and 25-minute performance!! Iv noticed thats about 6-7 songs more than the average setlist so far. What i also noticed is that Eddie seemed to be very chatty last night, more than normal, and it was just great! He had so much energy and was just in awe of the theatre. Just to give you a a picture of the theatre, its very old but elegant and an old west feel to it at the same time, theres just something magical of the place. The ceiling is dark with a touch of blue and can be lit up with thousands of small round lights which gives an illusion of looking up at the dark sky and seeing all the beautiful stars. i was also suprised to hear off he goes, immortality and i believe in miracles in the same setlist!
  • Wow, what a night!! The energy. The venue. The anticipation of just seeing Eddie do his remarkable music and gift on stage. It was such a special night for everyone who attended, including Eddie himself. You could tell that the audience was there to appreciate his art of music and presence as a wonderful human being. You could also sense his overwhelming appreciation of the wonderful venue we have in El Paso that is "THE PLAZA THEATRE". We could not have asked for a better intimate type setting to see and hear Eddie. The setlist was well thoughtout by him. While every song was performed and sung with such great emotion and appreciation to and for the audience. Thank you Eddie, for a great life experience. ........Next year, ....PEARL JAM at the Don Haskins!!!!! ....Cross your fingers! :P

    What a lucky woman to get to sing a duet with Ed! I would have fainted if that had been me.....plus I cannot sing. Ed would send me back to my seat :)
    It's nice to be nice to the nice.
  • I was at this show, and I really enjoyed it a lot! :D I love to listen to Ed's stories, and he really did make it seem like we were all sitting around a campfire under the stars, listening to him sing. His voice just sounded amazing in that theater-I love the ambiance of older theaters and this one was just lovely. Some highlights for me were Elderly Woman, Broken Heart, Wishlist, Immortality, Falling Slowly, I Believe in Miracles, Off He Goes, Needle and the Damage Done, Porch and Tonight you belong to me. I thought the singer from the audience did a terrific job-she and Ed sounded fantastic together! I'm sure that must have made her night, to be able to sing with such an incredible musician!! :D :clap: :clap:

    After Arc, several of us moved forward toward the stage, and I was lucky enough to be right up against the stage to watch Ed, Glen, and several audience members singing Hard Sun. :shock: That was an experience I will never forget. What a wonderful evening!! :clap: :thumbup:

  • Got there early to see if I could met Ed and I did !! It was a great experience, bodyguard comes out and says, he's not gonna sign anything and no pictures he just want to talk with you guys, there were about 7 of us and we all just went, sure that's fine, I turnaround and I see Eddie just beside me, he sits down and says .. HEY I KNOW YOU !! that's where I shit my pants, but I say Probably not Eddie maybe from concerts.. He says Well you look familiar, we talked from politics to music, for more than 20 minutes, he gave an autograph to everyone and we took a group picture, at the end I told Eddie if he could do me a favor and play "off he goes" it would really mean a lot for me and he said.. Let me see what I can do, shook my hand and said I'll see you guys later. Midway thru the concert he mentions that this is a request from someone that asked me very politely and he starts playing Off he goes, and that's were I shit my pants again.... Thank you Eddie for giving me one of my best experiences of my life

    How early did you get there? I got to the Alb show early just to pick up my tickets, but I didn't see anyone waiting by the tour bus when I drove past it. Just wondering how early one has to get to a show to get to talk to Ed for 20 minutes. How fucking cool!! :thumbup:
