    This show was amazing! I'm still trying to let it all soak in. Hearing immortality gave me goosebumps and the crowd was f'n unreal I just felt the energy all night and I'm sure the band did too. Mikes solos killed it too...unreal!!! See ya in Toronto!

    I can't imagine Ed is going to have much of a voice left after his rendition of Love, Reign o'er Me. Holy balls that was intense. Had a great time at the show last night - what an explosion of energy they brought to this sleepy village! Having Jon Krakauer and Ed's brothers at the show probably compelled the band to bring it all. They sure did.

    The GA pit was phenomenal. I really enjoyed it despite doing some major pre-grumbling (privately) about it. It was a treat to be at a PJ show and have space to dance and play air-guitar like I do in my living room. It was the first PJ show I've been to where I can move around and get into it as much as I want to.

    Signing off with Fuckin' Up was a highlight for me. I hope it's not another five years before they return to Ottawa.

    i'm looking for an extra poster too.. Lines were brutal both before and after the show. If not, here's hoping they pop up in the store.

    Looks like an awesome setlist with awesome an awesome crowd and acoustics...note to self, see PJ in Canada next tour.

    SDL says that Vedder was hitting the 'baby toe screams' on Reign last night.
    It sure was something to hear...
    It's a hopeless... situation

    I took a self-imposed 2-1/2 year break from seeing Pearl Jam after the 2013 tour ended. I wanted it to feel magical again. Last night was magical. Cannot wait for Toronto.

    Crazy Mary and Real Me were scratched off the setlist. And Indifference was on there to close but they didn't do it. I saw Mike changed guitars after Fuckin Up but Jeff walked past and seemed to tell him they weren't doing it.

    Anyone know why they dont do everything on the list? At 30 songs it was one of the fewer played on the tour. Is this a venue curfew constraint? Just curious, was still an awesome show. Can't wait for TO!

    I had an aswesome time. I had chosen reserved and I have a high # 500,000's and I was given floor section C row 2, seats 1,2. In front of me some people didn't show up so I moved to row 1!!! I'm a short girl and I saw everything!!!! One thing was the security guard was right in front of me where the two barricades meet. I had to tell him to move a few steps towards the middle of the aisle so I can see better he finally did during small town and it was awesome. Now that I experienced it this close I'm going GA next time! Also I really want to attend more shows next time around! Everyone on this forum is right, it's one major sing along and I loved that. Too bad I didn't get a tambourine! Thank-you 10C

    I guess it's just a feeling they have at the moment. Nothing calculated. Most sets have something scratched ,or added , or replaced. Very few sets I've seen are played exactly how they're written.

    Had seats in section 302 and people sat down .. Come on !!

    Well, it might have been just a coincidence, but I did place a request on the forum for Love Reign O'ver Me for my husband and I to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. There was no mention but we like to think it was for us :) Either way, it was amazing to hear that song yesterday so thank you!!!

    Simply a delight of a setlist. Great show! Brought a first-timer as my plus one. She agreed it was life changing, and was asking me all kinds of questions after the show. Pearl Jam gained a new fan last night.

    Lucky enough to be close in the bowl thanks to 10 club. It's been a bit of a dry spell for me, the last few years, and it was magical to be there last night. Nice to have a little more Avocado and Riot Act and a few deeper cuts.

    Such a good vantage point to see a show from! Plus you can sit down whenever you want. That's where my seats were in Quebec.

    One complaint - we met a fan in a wheelchair that had been seated behind standing room only. That's shitty as all she saw the whole night were others backs. I think the venue could have done better in seating this person.

    That was maybe me. You the Oshawa couple?
    The wheelchair section was actually 10 rows back in the middle of the seated (but everyone still standing, obviously) section of C - behind the standing only/GA would have probably been way better because the huge gaps between the 2 barricades (plus the gap at the back of GA in front of the barricade) would have lowered the heads in front of us quite a bit, instead we had people not even 2 feet directly in front of us...so http://imgur.com/rLAoNWV

    Note: these were not 10c tickets. 10c originally put me in 203, but this was my first and probably only chance at floor so I bought one of those, not ever thinking the CTC would be that stupid.

    It was a total bummer, but was still glad to be there, since any PJ is better than no PJ.

    Finally made it out to see PJ after all of these years, and can't believe it has taken me so long to make it out to one of their shows! 10C tickets really came through for me too, and they were amazing! I wasn't sure where 10C were going to put me since I'm way up in the 531xxx, but they did not disappoint! Ended up in the seated GA - Section A Row 1 seats 11-12, basically dead center stage, and we had the railing directly in front of us so we weren't competing to look over any six and a half foot monsters that normally make their way out to shows. Love Reign O'er Me was a huge surprise and definitely one of the highlights for me throughout the night (seen The Who back in 2012 at the very same venue play it, too). By far the most energy I've ever experienced coming out of an Ottawa crowd, which certainly helps make or break a show. You could tell the band was feeling it too, and they lit it up the entire night! Managed to grab a poster as well which was nice. My first experience was golden, and it certainly won't be my last! Cheers 10C!

    Yes we're the Oshawa couple, We thought it was terrible what they did. We're glad that you enjoyed what you could, but we found it disappointing the venue would do that. Maybe we will see you at another show soon!

    Experienced my first PJ show last night after being a fan for the past 6 years. It was an amazing experience that went above and beyond my expectations. My 532xxx 10C number scored me floor section C, row 2, seats 3 & 4 behind the GA pit, which ended up being awesome. Hoping to make it to another show in the near future.

    What an incredible experience that was! Met some great folks from Minnisota, Halifax and Val D'Or Quebec. Waited all day for GA in the cold Ottawa winds but it was absolutely worth every second for a spot three back from the rail on Mike's side. The band was on fire, Eddie's voice was spectacular. Truly incredible from the sweet and subtle Parachutes which was completely nailed to Blood which was also completely nailed. Save You was a highlight (love that song), Heard a soundcheck for Green Disease... waiting for that one in Toronto... Eddie up on the rail during Porch right in front of us and Mike along the rail for a backwards guitar solo during Even Flow...I'm still in shock. The crowd was amazing. My 20th show, and though not the "best setlist ever" it was a great selection of songs and one of the best performances I have seen - something I will never forget. We are grateful and amazed. Love was in the building.(And the poster is awesome too)
