    Oh my god, what a show!! Was my first EV solo show. Got TC Tickets Row 13 - perfect - thanks TenClub. Brilliant set list. So many highlights. Porch was great, the Into the wild songs, Black with string quartet. Getting deeply touched by I'm so tired and also Song of good hope and Falling slowly together with Glen. Ed really enjoyed himself on stage. When he came out he was "dancing" to the Batman music und got standing ovations. It was really hot in the arena and he made some jokes about it. The end of the show was also great, when everyone was in front of the stage and was singing to RITFW and Hard sun. This was an unforgettable night! Thank you Eddie!!!!
    Sorry if my english is not perfect, I'm german :-)

    I'm assuming the intro. music (Batman) was a recording?

    When I first read the above and saw that it said "Batman-(Neal Hefti) TV show theme song performed by Harper and Eddie Vedder", I thought maybe they performed it live. That would be something.............

    No, it was only a recording...

    What a great (hot) night!!! I'm still in it until now. Very good setlist, good energy, good seats (row17). Eddie's voice was sublim. The atmosphère was very different from the concert that I saw in Amsterdam in 2012 but was so good too. The man made the best song of all time for me with animal, PORCH. It was perfect. I loved so much the songs played with the quartet, it was magical. I almost cried on Song of good hope, very beautiful, touching and moving to hear and the complicity between Glen and Eddie was so good to see and hear. Thank you so much Eddie for this night, it's bring joy and happiness in this life that is not always. Thank you daddy for coming again with me like you always did from the beginning. I'm so lucky to have you near me
