Set List

Walk On Music:It Happened Today-R.E.M (8:30)
Band On Stage:08:32
Band Off Stage:11:28

01. Go (Vs. album intro)
02. Mind Your Manners
03. Corduroy
04. Hail, Hail
05. Given To Fly

(Ed says they are happy to be back and he was going to ask the crowd later in the show to get the floor bouncing but it was already happening. He thanks Billy Joel for taking a night off so they could play)

06. Low Light
(This one goes to Jen and Tim tonight and there mom and pa(?))
07. Release
08. Even Flow (Ed throws the mic to a guy on the barricade who sings for a bit. When he is done he throws the mic back. Ed smiles and laughs and yells at the guy off mic “yeah, you're in the band man!” We find out the guys name is Kenneth and Ed thanks him and suggests that if his voice goes after two and half hours Kenneth might have to come up. “I’m glad I have back up.”)
09. I Got ID
10. In Hiding
(Ed says he looked up the first show the band played in New York. It was the Marquee club. He has absolutely no memory of it but he feels like he already remembers this show. He says the next song is for a friend of his who passed away a long time ago. This is for Enrico Salvatore Rizzo. {this is the character Dustin Hoffman played in “Midnight Cowboy” also known as “Ratso”)
11. Rats
12. Down
(Ed says something about a musician friend of his that he lost track of and he was wondering how he was doing. He plays part of the next song by that musician. This is all a ruse to play a song from the film Ishtar.-I may have to correct these details I missed much of what was said. )

13. Dangerous Business-(Paul Williams) from the film Ishtar
14. Wishlist (Ed lyrically expresses interest in running for president, confident he could do a better job than Trump or Cruz and manages to make a small penis joke. And while he likes Hillary he is feeling ‘The Bern’. He goes on to encourage young people to go out and vote and stay active politically.)
15. Jeremy

(alright, this is the song, this is where we get seismic—-you got it!)
16. Do The Evolution
17. Why Go
18. Lukin
19. Rearviewmirror

Encore Break One
(Ed spots a guy in a Mets Jersey. Ed asks if he is the actual player. He then asks if a young woman can move and stand behind Kenneth (the guy who sang on Even Flow earlier) because Kenneth is in a wheelchair and it is hard for him to see. He promises to make contact with the woman and reciprocate her blowing kisses so Kenneth can see.)
20. The End
(Ed is going to play the next song for Kevin and Kim. Kevin suffers from an autoimmune disease. He wanted to hear Just Breathe for them. Ed also mentions that his wife is doing a lot of work for an organization working on another autoimmune disease called EB. He describes what the organization called EB Research Partnership is doing and thanks Alex Silver.
https://ebresearch.org/organization/ )

21. Future Days
22. Off He Goes
23. Footsteps
24. Chloe Dancer/Crown Of Thorns-(Mother Love Bone, A. Wood)
25. Unthought Known
(A long time friend of Ed’s made a big request. Ed jokes that he isn’t happy about it especially at the Garden but his friend insists and says Ed isn’t as good of singer as this guy. “Thanks Jack”)
26. Takin’ It To The Streets-(McDonald) Doobie Brothers song by request
26. Whipping
28. Better Man/Save It For Later-(Charley, Cox, Morton, Steele, Wakeling)
29. Porch

    Leaving building now. Gut reaction great show especially through encore 1. Will be an incredible bootleg to listen to. Band was very on. Not a lot of banter with audience. Was in 325 row 1 of Chase Bridge section which had great sound, almost like listening in 5.1. Highlights were mid first set Release and Crown and Footsteps back to back. Takin it to the Streets not so great, a little different genre than usual cover. Encore 2 the old standbys. Kind of expected an encore 3 the way it ended with no bow by band, but didn't happen. Not sure who played Mike's guitar on Rockin. Great Jeff night.

    Love how the sets aren't tied to an album this tour. Ton of variety. Band is on a great run right now at least last 3 nights I've seen live. It's right there with their April '03 run.

    I thought it was the best show I've seen since the 5/21/10 MSG show and I was there Friday night for the Ten performance. And I didn't have my 5 digit 10C seats tonight and I did in Philly.

    Just got back to the airbnb.

    First just want to say it was privilege to attend show that so many couldn't , but mixed reaction for me. Felt like I was at this awesome show, but not really a part of it. My seats were nose bleed behind stage so I knew my view wasn't going to be great. Problem with MSG is that upper concourse means there is a low ceiling that slopes down and I could only see about 30% of the arena. When standing, people on the back few rows could not see the screens so there were stretches of the show where you really couldn't see any of the band members other than back of Boom due to the hanging lights. Some of my favorite "lesser" songs were played at this show, but it was hard to get into it in that area. I could tell crowd was singing loudly, but the sound doesn't translate well to that area. I think the only sections like this were the ones directly under the top level

    Again, awesome show, just a disclaimer for people that may be sitting in this area tomorrow! Leaving arena, I noticed the sections on the side were not near as bad as where I was

    Looking fwd to tomorrow when I'm at least in the 200 level

    That was beyond amazing. Best main set I've seen. Chole/crown was amazing, def one of my highlights of seeing this band. So can't wait for GA tomorrow

    Sammi: Wanna just break up?

  • peterwhughespeterwhughes NHPosts: 65
    10c seats in section 102 directly in front of Ed at the back of the arena behind the sound board but high enough to see over GA. Sound, crowd and band were absolutely fantastic. So much energy. My fave PJ show to date.

    Went solo to this one and loved every second of it. First set probably best I've ever seen (maybe Nassau 03 rivaled it). In Hiding so underrated (not on these boards, but in general) and so great tonight. Release never gets old. Took me 17 shows to get it and I've been spoiled since. Just an incredible night from a band that seems to get better with every tour. Missed Philly 2 and I'm feeling a whole lot fucking better about it than I did Friday night... Need sleep to get ready for tomorrow - show # 30. So many possibilities! Best band ever.

    Great set - tough to match Philly but they pulled out (most) of the stops - should be an amazing set tomorrow night. They never fail to bring it at MSG.

    I'll preface this by saying I know a lot of people didn't make it in the building, and I'm incredibly grateful to have been one of those who did. That being said, this is #3 for me this year.

    The crowds at Philly 1 and 2 seemed to have sooo much more energy than the crowd tonight, aside from perhaps the "greatest hits" type songs. This may be entirely too subjective. Had a seat in 213, where there were I kid you not 40 or so people directly in front of me who sat through the entire show. Had 10C for both Philly shows.

    Setlist was awesome though. Really stoked to hear Go, Rats, Down, Whipping, The End. Got Release last show but always down to hear it two nights in a row. And like I said, all the mainstays sounded fantastic tonight, particularly Black and Alive. Not a fan of Crown of Thorns being in such heavy rotation these days but the accompanying solo tonight was fantastic.

    Crawling in bed right now to get some rest for tomorrow. Think my lukewarm opinion of tonight relative to the Philly shows might also be influenced by how absolutely drained I am from following this tour. Averaging about 4 hours of sleep/night the past few days.

    While this show ranks near the bottom for me, it's still better than any other non-PJ show I've ever been to. I've had so much fun following this band this year that I'm playing with the idea of selling my MSG Radiohead tickets to go to one more Pearl Jam show instead.

    This one left me wanting more. Cant put my finger on it, but seemed pretty standard. Hopefully tomorrow night is the night.

    Main set was amazing, especially DTE. Wish they came out hard for encore 1 but energy was insane. Had section 103 with my friend's 500xxx number. I have GA tomorrow.

    This was a warm up for tomorrow night ;)

    MSG > everything combined
