    Amazing!! Don't let people fool you, Tampa was great too. Jax? Now that was something magical. So glad I got to take my friend. She was a PJ virgin, now she can't get enough. Ten Club seats were awesome. Would have LOVED to hear RVM but 2 nights of Corduroy was something I'll never forget. Thanks, Mike for being a guitar legend. Thanks Ed for not going dark on us. Matt/Stone - love you guys! Jeff.....WOW! Hi Boom.

    This is exactly why you have to go to more than one show. You never know when a special night will happen. This looks like one of those nights.

    So, Ed doesn't get political anymore? His banter seems to be soft and fluffy or sporty. Soft in old age? IDK

    So happy for you Dimi. I love that song so I've been rooting for you the whole time. Has anyone seen a pic of the set-list? Was Ghost in the encore or was it added after Ed saw you?
  • Magical night...Ed caught the Cubs hat I tossed on stage and wore it for part of RITFW and then he came over and motioned for the Jose Cardenal poster I brought in ( he kept pointing at it all night and at one point said "Jose!" between songs) and brought it on stage with him. It's the only thing he left the stage with after the show, and I was damn proud. If anyone has any photos of that, pleasssssse let me know, I was too busy living in the moment! Incredible show, can't wait for Greenville...

    It was added into first encore in place of The Fixer.

    Dimi - was unaware of your Ghost fixation until now.. Thought I was the only one... Come to Columbia in your ghost outfit please! Maybe they'll play it again :-)))

  • Fuck. Of the Earth!? Ghost?! So happy for Dimi, but also elated to close Florida out this way. I was born and raised in Jax so to have the crowd represent the way they did and to see the band feed off of them in the way they did filled my heart with a swell of pride. I can't wait until Colombia and then on to both Wrigleys! A big thank you to all of my new friends I've met during the Florida run and I hope to meet more or re-connect at my other shows. Much love...
    -best,
    Cory

    -and one last thing, to address a horse long-beaten dead, if the band playing too many "repeats" means that we get a viscerally transcendent version of Jeremy 3 shows in a row, then by all means gentlemen, keep repeating!

    I went to all 4 Florida shows and this one was by far the best. I was in GA for this one. First time there and I have to say WOW! What a difference the view makes for a show!

    I was Stones side 2 deep almost in the corner, so just behind the guy on the rail. The two guys in front of me caught tambourines, one of them getting a nod from Vedder while doing Thumbing My Way tag. He had a sign that he held up. A girl got her 92 PJ shirt signed by Vedder, couldn't tell if the whole band signed it or not?

    The band has been very accommodating with requests and shout outs. Dimi got Ghost!

    So back to the show. The energy was amazing! Had a few drunkards and a wheelchair that almost ruined the night for me and a few others but things calmed and everyone went back to enjoying the music.

    Glorified G was an absolute treat! So many great songs played.

    It is very cool to see the band that close and watch them work the crowd. They feel your energy. To have Vedder, Stone and Ament look right at you and nod to you is pretty damn cool. I didn't get a McCready stare but I saw him doing it to others, lol.

    Fantastic energy from the crowd and the band, so I can see why Vedder told Jacksonville that "they won" as far as Florida.

    I'm also enjoying the solos in Evenflow and also that Porch is shorter now. Great intro into Porch too, I like the riffing in the beginning.

    Enjoy everyone, the band is on fire!

    This. I was at all 4 Florida shows and I felt that Jacksonville was by far the worst of all the shows, the whole first encore is the worst set I've ever seen the band play and the second encore was basically a condensed version of "Ten". Smile was by far the highlight of the night and the best part of that show for me.

    I see all this hate for Tampa but that was the best show of the Florida run IMO. Maybe it was the fact that I was GA, but maybe not since I had great TC seats for Jacksonville and crap nose bleeds for Miami and I still think Miami was a better show than Jacksonville. Ed also seemed like he really didn't want to be there (to me at least) for about the first half of Jacksonville.

    So why is Jacksonville so special? The crowd? Because I would disagree there, when stuff like Of the Earth and Army Reserve came out and the crowd went silent and looked bored I fail to see the energy everyone is talking about. You would think having really great seats surrounded by fellow Ten Club member the energy around you would be high at least but I heard quite a few people mention in my section (102) that they actually walked up hours before the show and bought tickets from the box office. Most of those people sat down for all the songs they haven't been hearing on the radio for the past 25 years.

    It was great seeing the band at all these Florida shows, I just don't understand/share the opinion that Jacksonville was so magical.

    Awesome set list. Awesome crowd. The guys were on fire. What's not to love?

    This was the the best I've heard Eddie sound in years. I don't know if he quit smoking or has been voice training but whatever he's doing fucking works!

    Oh yeah. Our 10C reserved seats were great. Front row on Mike's side in 114.

    Thanks for a killer night PJ, 10 Club and fellow jammers!

    This has been the best show i've ever been to. The crowd did right for the guys. Energy didnt die until the band left the stage. I'm still coming down from this show.

    Thank you sir...can't agree more. Have seen Jeremy a lot and didn't have the pleasure of being there for Jax but Miami Jeremy was spectacular. They just get better these boys. Can't wait to hear the reviews for what will follow.
