    Read this yesterday was at both shows and also live in London, such a shitty disease was happy that the band gave them this moment much deserved.

    I was in sec 110 and got to sit next to another 10 clubber :rock_on: and our section was awesome! The lady that "manned" our entrance was spectacular! We had A LOT OF LOITERING!!!!


    My first time Mike's side! :rock_on: I have no idea how many times it looked like he was gonna fall right off the stage!

    It's already been said how ON Jeff and Mike were!

    GO opener - loved!

    I don't get to see their gear - Jeff's bass on DTE was wicked and he whipped a pick out like a dart! :fearful:

    I'm not going to go over the set because obviously you guys get that and I don't need to explain !!!!!!!! :rock_on: :rock_on: :rock_on: YEAHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!

    RVM was the best I've heard! Loved Jeff's splits haha. Porch seemed like it got cut off short..booo. Alive seemed like it got cut short. ..booo.

    MATT WAS ON FIRE! WOW! :rock_on: Also loved the mini solo!! :rock_on: LOVED!

    Boom came out late. Don't even remember but very late.

    I enjoyed the changes in lighting or strobing. Cool effects over the crowds!

    There was a guy in the row in front of me that apparently fell on someone in front of him and security took him and he didn't come back. He was pissed! People were saying it was an accident.

    Another dude across the isle was puffin on somethin.....A LOT and all nite long. And the lady he was with was definitely prego.

    There was a blonde near by next to sec 110 and she was havin a blast just like I was!! And there was a young kid in front of her that looked bored. And a very very drunk man that had on 2 hats left from behind the blonde that thankfully just left quietly haha.

    Yes the final set was super loud. Twice I covered my ears and then could not hear my neighbor I felt so bad I just had to tell him I can't hear you. So loud. I should've wore plugs. When we left my ears were jacked!

    DONNA WAS BLAZING HOT!!!!! That video D posted the audio does ZERO justice! ZERO! She had me all amped up. I could've easily done another 3 hour show haha! Beautiful! Amazing! :rock_on:

    My #1 show!

    Can't say enough how much that crowd was on and loud and I think we shook that arena.

    Loved hockey hall of fame!! We ate at Loaded Perogie YUM!!!!

    When we got back to Novotel and reached the elevator 2 guys were already there and one looked over at me sweaty as hell "that show sucked" BAHAHAHAHHAH! We all laughed our faces off!

    Beautiful city! Beautiful people! See you next time!

    Oh! And during the closer Ed thru a tambo at some peeps in front of Mike. A dude and a dudette both caught it. They both stood there haha :open_mouth: holding it. Haha neither one would let go. They just stood there staring at Ed :tired_face: waiting for him to tell them who gets it. Well Ed must've moved on and that dude didn't let go :frowning: the dudette was so disappointed.
    Oh please let it rain today.

    This show was better than I gave credit earlier. After watching the videos, I do really like Sleight of Hand and Rival. Unfortunately, the first three songs on the album are skippers for me, and then there are a couple more later on (Grievance, Thin Air), so listening from start to finish didn't get me pumped like other shows have. But immediately after the show I said it was disappointing, and that was an overreaction. Looking back on it, I wish I were back there experiencing it all again. I don't know when the next time I'll see these guys will be, but most likely a couple of years before they come back to the Midwest. Each time is a blessing, whether you like every song they play that night or not

    2nd encore was loud.. scratch that - the whole show was pretty loud! I was so glad to have the next day off work, not just because of the 5 hour drive home but my right ear was pretty fucked that whole next day. (It was better by Wednesday night.) Starting to think I'm about 12 years too late to the earplug party and ought to get smart about it right now.

    Still on cloud 9 from this show... It's funny to think I had no intentions of going unless I got picked in the lottery. So glad it happened!

    Well this was my 19th show and I am so glad I went. Every year since 2000 I have worn my Binaural shirt to the first show I go to on any given season. And to not only experience my first full album at a show but for it to be Binaural was something I will never forget. My wife and I were in the pit (Mikes side) and around the second song in to album my Neighbours started wondering if this was going to be them playing Binaural, and by the 4th song we knew it was on.

    Hey!! I was right next to you. I had the Mike black yellow pic shirt on and my friend was in the Cubs jersey, Great review. It was an awesome experience to share with great fans like you and your lovely wife! See you on the road...
  • pearljamnewfpearljamnewf Posts: 157
    20th show for me and this one will never leave the memory. This is why I travel and crave seeing this great band live. A full album was such a treat. A week later and I really appreciate Binaural more. The performance was just beautiful. Thin Air & Of the Girl were just gorgeous.

    Once that mind screw of what I was experiencing ended. The end of first set was just a total energy release. Had a great view of Mike from GA pit. Was a row behind rail. Matt Fucking Cameron sign guy in front of me.

    Imagine was a great sight, Let me sleep just amazing. Comfortably Numb was on the most wanted list for me. SOLAT I remember watching Mike the entire song. Even Flow solo... come on...how does he do it? Even Eddie bowed in appreciation of what happened. Real Me Jeff destroyed.

    Thank you PJ, thank you 10club, thank you to all great fans in pit.

    Wow.

    My sister and I were in Sec 105 towards the back and the only other people that seemed to be enjoying themselves as much as we were was a girl and her dad beside us. you'll never see any hate come out from me. I enjoy every fucking show i get to take part in.

    Ten days later, a little perspective has set in. I absolutely loved the show and that is all that matters. Not telling people what to do, but to me going to a show with no expectations on what will be played and just enjoying what is, is the way to go. Once I became a PJ die hard around 2005 I went to a show hoping and expecting one or two songs. Didn't get them and left annoyed and didn't enjoy the show as much. I changed my attitude then and there. Rock out to any and every song they play! I would still take Corduroy, Even Flow, Black, Jeremy, etc played live by PJ over any other band even if it is my 15th time hearing it live.

    I predicted GO as the opener to the guy beside me in the pit.

    Seeing Binaural live was one for the ages. I didn't clue in until Light Years as I always mix up God's Dice with Whipping. Even though people around me in the pit by Evacuation were saying Binaural, I thought they were wrong until Light Years. I will say Evacuation and Rival are two of my least favourite Pearl Jam songs and that's probably why I don't listen to Binaural so much.

    What I loved about this show is Binaural isn't my most loved PJ album, so I didn't now the order off by heart. Even though I know the album songs, I didn't know the order. As each one started it was a surprise. My favourite and it didn't disappoint live, was Sleight of Hand.

    Can't wait for the boot. Did it ever get loud in the encores!

    Listening to the boot, reliving this in some way.

    Convinced it wasnt just 'after-show hype'... this was definitely top 2 or 3 of my 25 shows.

    3 months ago, I ended my live PJ drought with a very special night, reliving it now via the bootleg.

    Looking back on the 2 Toronto shows, Binonto (not sure what the consensus is on the name, lol) felt like a laid-back, family affair (which included some kick-ass performances, obviously, lol), while night 2 felt like the band wanted to knock out socks off (which they did to me, lol).

    Big shoutouts to JP and RNDM guy!
