Show One

Walk On Music: Baba O’Riley
Band Onstage: 7:40
Band Offstage: 10:30

01. Release
02. Long Road
(“let me take a look at you before the sun goes down. I don’t know how it happened but look at us. We are all at center field.”)
03. Elderly Woman Behind The Counter In A Small Town
04. Low Light
05. All Those Yesterday’s (during the outro Ed reads off all of the Red Sox championship banners)
06. Given To Fly
07. Mind Your Manners
08. Why Go
(Ed ask the audience how it sounds and lets them know it sounds great on stage. He mentions he likes the Cubs which elicits some boos. Ed gently chastises the audience for so soon forgetting how it feels to suffer. Ed briefly ponders the number of rings the Cubs have compared to a certain politicians balls. He states emphatically that he is purely speculating. He says the Red Sox were always his favorite American League team.)
09. Daughter, WMA, Another Brick In The Wall-part 2-(Waters) (one chorus only changes one lyric to “people leave your guns at home”)

10. Even Flow (Mike goes to the barricade and solos with the guitar behind his head while he is embraced by fans. Ed hands the mic to some gentlemen at the barricade to sing a little bit)

(Mike and Matt start “Grievance” but stop after 30 seconds when no one else joins in. turns out they skipped on a song on the set list.)

(The next song is dedicated to #34 “Big Papi {David Ortiz}”. Ed can’t believe this is going to be his last year.)
11. Faithfull
12. Grievance
(Ed apologizes for bringing up the person he brought up earlier. He doesn’t want to give that person any attention and he doesn’t want to be divisive in any manner. He wants tonight to be all about getting along and feeling safe together.)
13. I Am Mine
14. Down (Dedicated to Howard Zinn)

(Ed invites up a guest that used to pitch for the Red Sox and is the owner of one of the rings that the Red Sox have won. The player is on another mound now and he is rehabbing his arm and that involves playing acoustic guitar. Ed introduces their friend Bronson Arroyo.)

15. Black w/ guest Bronson Arroyo on acoustic guitar and backing vocals. Ed asks the audience to hold up lights so Bronson can see how magical this place can be. The audience complies with a huge display.

16. Do The Evolution
17. Masters Of War-(Dylan) {full band e.v. electric gtr)
18. I Am A Patriot-(Van Zandt) {fast version full band}
19. Porch (Ed goes to the barricade for the outro and ends up with a Red Sox cap)

Encore Break One
During the break Ed chats with the audience and has some Polaroids of the crowds he took on the first tour displayed on the video screens. He says the first time they played in Boston at a club called Axis. He doesn’t have pictures from that show because he took pictures of security guys beating up a kid. He laughs over the security guy trying to tear the Polaroids but he didn’t get the pictures back. He also shows Polaroids from when he snuck into Fenway because he just HAD to get in.

20. Strangest Tribe
“you’ve been a great tribe”
21. Society-(Hannan)
“This is for Jason and his wife”
22. Just Breathe

(Ed appears to change his mind about what song he wants to do. He asks if he can get a uke. Former Red Sox player Kevin “Youk” Youkilis delivers Ed’s ukulele. “Hey, I got a Youk!” They drink wine and praise the Red Sox nation. As Youk leaves the stage Ed thanks him for dressing up for the occasion, which Youk, clearly did not do.)

23. Sleeping By Myself
24. Wasted Reprise/Life Wasted (Ed sings the line “Don’t Give Up” four times before starting the Wasted Reprise. Possibly quoting Peter Gabriel’s song but it didn’t follow the melody and was just those four words.)
25. State Of Love And Trust (Ed walks to the far wings while singing while Mike runs all over the place. Before the solo Ed lies on his stomach and reaches for a beer from an audience member. He takes a sip and hands it back. Blue gets a great shot of the security persons amused reaction to Ed’s antics. )

“We are going to borrow a song from our friend Roger. We sang it together for a Hurricane Sandy benefit and we have done it ourselves a few times but it seems like a great song to play out doors. And if anybody is tripping balls or whatever version is your favorite”.

26. Comfortably Numb-(Gilmour, Waters) {Ed plays piano during the outro solo}
27. Corduroy (during the instrumental break while getting the audience to sing asks the audience if they have a few more innings in them or do they need a relief pitcher. “We got it if you got it.”)

Encore Break Two

Ed thanks the fans for being so great and praises the venue.

28. Draw The Line-(Perry, Tyler) Aerosmith cover
“That’s for Joe Perry. We are thinking about you.”
29. Alive
(Ed introduces the band. Ed also introduces the great sportswriter Peter Gammons who comes on stage.)
Ed says the band is going to try and play a song they haven’t played since maybe the first time they came to Boston. He says the request came from Mathew Plummer whose father had passed away. Ed gets a little choked up while talking about it. He tells Mathew that they can all relate to losing someone. Mathew and his father didn’t agree on all music but they came together on this song.
30. I’ve Got A Feeling-(Lennon, McCartney)
31. Baba O’Riley-(Townshend)

    Some crazy good covers. The band had high energy and was happy to be at the park. Sunday will be great. Well done guys.

    I just got back to our room at the Verb -- the converted Howard Johnson next to Fenway where the band stayed many years ago, and where Eddie snuck into Fenway to get some Polaroids that he showed tonight. The show was incredible. Strangest Tribe - how much more of a rarity can you get!!! Despite the crowd's energy on just about every other song, the crowd seemed subdued after Strangest Tribe - or at least in my section (B7). I'm not sure they understood what a gift we were getting. Eddie choking up introducing I've Got A Feeling -- plus the fact that this band cares that much about us fans -- just made me love them even more.

    Also, the sound was great. I was on the field, so don't know how it was in the stands. Very impressed that a stadium concert could sound that good.

    Show was incredible, the energy of the crowd was consistently awesome. Sorry about the Red Mosquito scratch but a Release and Long Road start was basically a dream. I could have left right then and the concert would have been a ten. The entire main set was off the charts excellent. And the sound was almost perfect and the band crushed it. This was one of my favorite PJ shows of all time and I've been to many.

    Another random note, the hotel I'm staying at is where the band is staying. We saw them walking out this afternoon, surrounded by security. Wish the band would invite me and my friends to their room to chill. Alas, I don't think that will happen. But it was an amazing night.

    Happy they played I've got a feeling for that guy! I'd been seeing a thread about it I believe and I'm happy it happened. I hope that was a special moment for that dude. Sounds like an awesome night besides!

    Much better sound than the last time I saw a concert at Fenway two years ago, a pleasant surprise. Mellow vibe on the field. Stellar setlist from beginning to end. Many thanks to 10 Club for the second chance ticket drop and kudos to this terrific band, still turning themselves inside out to entertain their fans for 25 years. ❤

  • Was in right field box 95 and sound was as great as any good arena out there. I've got a feeling has to be the highlight for me. Fenway under the stars. Will likely have a wet dream.

    My son's first show. Couldn't have asked for a better night. Much thanks to the band and the crowd around us who showed us so much love.
  • jxchamb1jxchamb1 Posts: 59
    Amazing show. Strangest Tribe was the highlight for me. Overall probably the best show I've been to. The band was just on fire. And I thought the park actually kinda felt intimate. I don't know how to explain it but it didn't feel likes a stadium show.

    This one came up short in my book. A few miscues,relatively short set list and a couple odd placed tunes.
    1. The first Fenway gig. 2. The band has not played Boston in 6 years 3. a Huge build-up.........? Then At 10:30 the lights are on and it's over, really..?it feels a little skinny for a PJ concert in Boston. Admittedly I am not a fan of the larger venues, nor should this band be either . My 2 cents. See you Sunday.

    Wowzers I am speechless! Strangest Tribe and I've Got a Feeling were amazing. The band was on tonight and the sound was much better then I expected along the 3rd baseline.

    So damn good.
    Oh and Ed, Reggie White never played CF for the Red Sox, you're thinking of Reggie Smith. ;)

    Sound was great, stadium was quite a sight to see for my first time (and fun to hear Ed's first time being there). Covers were on point and the setlist did more than enough for me tonight.

    Can't wait to see what Sunday brings.

    What get left off tonight? Not that it matters. They could have just played masters of war and walked right off the stage.

    Red Mosquito scratched. They were late because the crowd was late and pandered to them with most of the set.

    .

    How many times has he told that story? I feel like this was the third time I've heard it. Maybe it was only once before. But it was cool with them showing the Polaroids on the screen.

    Masters of War was fantastic and I love me some Fast Patriot!
  • Man what an amazing show. I thought Masters of War was incredible. Strangest Tribe sounded fantastic. Loved Society too. Youkilis bringing out the uke was classic. It was a great, great show. Can't wait for Sunday.

    Floor wasn't too difficult to navigate. Getting to the floor however was crazy. Felt like cattle in a sardine can.
