    Great show last night in Helsinki. Missed the pre-sale but got "good enough" 2nd row seats in the general sale.

    Oh, you weren't sitting too far from me, mrk2

    ^ This image was used in Cornell's official FB page :smile:

    Now that was one hell of a gig. Got all the songs I had hoped for and then some. Awesome night

    just noticed Sunshower was crossed out from that setlist. That would have been nice to hear as well..

    What's the merch like??

    There were few different t-shirts and at least one hoodie, baseball cap and maybe some smaller items. Also Higher Truth vinyls. It was cash only and I didn't bring any, so I kinda dismissed the merch stand...

    Yep


    Ah, there's a playlist for the gig (not all songs after all, just few):

    A fellow PJ fan who was sitting next to me has Fell On Black Days on video. She took it even though the staff was keeping a close eye on folks trying to record the show... I think she was cautioned after that one :D

  • I think the show in Sweden was decent and what you excepted. But both Eddie Vedder and Neil Young suited an acoustic setting better (imo). Might have to do with them having a catalogue of songs better suited and in the case of Eddie – switching up the instruments.

    I found Chris Cornells sound to be pretty "harsch" and he plays the song too fast (for my taste).

    It was nice seeing him. But it can't touch Vedder solo.

    My highlight from the night was actually Scream. Sounded great with the backing of the vinyl and that guy Bryan. Billy Jean, Nothing Compare to you, Fell on Black days and Rusty Cage in that Johnny Cash-style was also nice.

    Imagine and The times they are a changing might be the most boring covers you can play though. Don't go for the "top 20 karaoke classics" when picking covers. :)

    They are fine covers. I don't really see them as karaoke songs.

    Zagreb last Thursday: it was awesome! My highlight was Blow up the Outside World and all of Temple of the Dog. I'm musically in love.

    I like the no-phone-allowed rule but it has its downsides :P

    Was front row in Glasgow on Friday night. Fantastic show and he got a great response from the crowd.

    Played for 2.5 hours, and I think he would have played for longer had it not been for the curfew.

    I've seen him in Zagreb a few weeks ago, and left the venue a bit disappointed. :/
    I honestly expected more, but overall it was a very good show.

    "Seasons", "Can't Change Me" and TOTD stuff were the highlights!

    Last night at the Royal Albert Hall really was amazing. I've only seen him once previously at Manchester 2012 (which blew me away then) but his voice seems even better now. The new songs fitted into his set great too and the cello player added a new dimension to some of the songs. Thank You with Jimmy Page in the building was a real highlight.

    Blow Up the Outside World was sensational last time, but it didn't have the same impact on me last night. Also I don't think Rusty Cage works particularly well in that setting.

    But overall, one of my favourite gigs of all time. An amazing collection of songs delivered superbly in an a stunning venue.

    Also, respect to the guy wearing a MSG 2 shirt at the gig last night. He must have had about 15 hours after the PJ gig in New York to get to London for Chris Cornell. Great effort!
