    i'm right there with you in the "blown away" camp, brother.

  • First post for me, so I'll try to be brief. This was my very first Pearl Jam concert and my wife's first concert ever. She's from the Philippines so she's not too familiar with PJ but it was always a bucket list item of mine to see them live. I had a couple opportunities here and there, the most recent prior to this was their appearance at ACL Festival when I still lived in ATX. We made the trek to Columbia, SC with the promise to her that we would stop by Myrtle Beach but all in all it was for the concert. We absolutely loved it from the fans doing the wave before the start, to opening with Oceans, to Rise, to Crown of Thorns, to Eddie tossing the tambourine to the kid. As much as I would like to have seen an album show, for my first PJ concert and getting to hear a little bit of everything, it was an amazing experience.

    Really enjoying this boot so far. The SC shows had great crowd energy. Really comes through in the recording.

    It was a very good show. Can't wait to get the bootleg (I still collect CD's) and relive it. We had great spots in GA. For once I had a clear view of the stage about 4 or 5 deep - everyone in front was shorter then me. :) I enjoyed talking to our GA companions - an uncle and nephew - both attorneys. You were a pleasure to share space with.

    Listening to boot late night EST. So damn good! The 1st encore was so great. The sound on these boots is so good. Such an interesting comparison to the '00 & '03 boots. Now I just have to find a way to convince my wife to stay for Fenway 2.... Suggestions welcome.

    All Those Yesterdays, so glad I got to see it live.

    Great shows in SC. So proud to have been at them, and my first show ever be Greenville where they were so ON IT they blew the roof off, Eddie's vocals were perfect, and although my partner didn't think so while there (we were off to side and had huge bass speakers distorting sound to us a bit, but I could tell through the noise that a special vocal was being laid down that night) She agrees now after hearing the bootlegs, both shows were awesome, greenville imo had a slightly better vocal (the shows were so different I don't feel right even comparing really), but we both decided Greenville, SC for vocals and Columbia SC for crowd being cool, although both crowds were way cool as well. Guess I just can't say enough about how blown away I was after wanting to see them for so long. I've said it in other posts, and I repeat, Thank you Pearl Jam for 2 glorious nights of art and friendship
    after 25 year wait: Greenville april 16th, 2016 and Columbia, SC on 21st. thanks for the memories PJ

    I was at both of these shows as well, and couldn't agree more!!!
    Getting VS in Greenville was INCREDIBLE...
    and I loved the setlist and the flow of the Columbia show too!!
    It really is refreshing hearing the point of view from a longtime fan getting to see Pearl Jam for the first time!!!

    Awesome, I hope to be here to share, if nothing but my poetry. I still don't have words to explain what I experienced. I think that is my favorite part. I always like a movie that can surprise me at the end lol. It was my #1 bucket list item, and look at the 2 shows I happen to see, who could describe how that feels? woo hoo

  • I figured this thread would be a safe place for my first post (!). Long time fan but have only seen the band twice, both times in Columbia (missed out on seeing them in '94 in New Orleans due to TM cancellation). Have to say I enjoyed this 2nd one more, probably due to awesome seats and the fact that when I saw them in 2008 I had been kind of off the band for a few years. Came back to my senses when all of the PJ20 was going on. Anyway finally listened to the boot today and it really is hard to put into words just how amazing the show was. I don't think I'll ever tire of hearing Given to Fly live. Or the MLB covers. Or hearing Eddie talk/interact with the crowd. So ready to do it again but will have to settle (ha) for TOTD in Philly.
    I'm through with screaming

    Just listened to the boot for the first time.
    Very good show.
    Was at Myrtle Beach for the week and took the journey to Columbia.
    Great to hear Oceans for only the 2nd time in 38 shows.
    Really interesting and cool first encore with Rise, Sleight and Yesterdays.
    had a great time although the drive back to Myrtle was much further than I thought.
