Set List

Band Onstage: 7:57
Band Offstage: 10:31
Walk On Music: Metamorphosis #2-Phillip Glass

01. Wash
02. Sometimes
03. Corduroy
04. Why Go
05. Save You
06. Given To Fly
(Ed says it is very nice to be able to see the audience since they are playing in daylight.  He addresses them in German and asks the band when they have been here before.  Mike, Jeff and Stone had been here with Neil Young.  Ed introduces the band and special guest Danny Clinch. He says the next song is called “Blue Eyed Frog”.)
07. Red Mosquito w/ Danny Clinch on harmonica
08. In My Tree (Up here in my tree / Newspapers matter not to me Fuck Trump!)
(“I hear J. Mascis from the great Dinosaur Jr. is here tonight.  J. I am looking for you while it is still light out.  This is dedicated to J. Mascis”)
09. Even Flow
10. Wishlist (I wish I was as fortunate as Mike McCready)
11. Habit (“Speaking as a man who despises racism in any form” instead of the normal spoken part).  
12. Angie-(Jagger / Richards) Partial cover about 1:20 seconds
13. Daughter / It's OK-(Cole) - (cover lasts 4 min (I need all of you on this. I need all the girls, I need all the women.  I need all the people that love their girls and women.  Help me sing it)
14. Deep (During the “doesn’t like the view” section lays on his back with his head hanging upside down over the monitors.)
15. Mind Your Manners
16. Unthought Known
(Ed gives the audience in the pit 5 stars.  He says they are gonna play a slow song they can get romantic and he says they won’t play a Ramones song tonight but he wants people to check out the Ramones museum.  He continues talking about the Ramones and the audience starts to chant “Hey Ho-Let’s Go”.  Okay, I’m gonna play a quiet one.)
17. Lukin
18. Porch-(During instrumental part the audience are throwing around what I think are pieces of flat cardboard that look to hold six beers.  A few make it onto the stage.  Ed watches.  Jeff gets one and uses it to play his bass.  Ed climbs down to the barricade for the end of the song)

Encore Break 1
(Referring to all the beer caddy’s the audience was throwing around he says he knew the crowd was drinking but he didn’t realize how much they had been drinking.  He compares them to Seattle or Seattle to them.
He relates a story from a guy in Prague who was adamant that Ed reads his note.  The note says I went to the show with a neighbor I left with a wife.  This song is for you and neighbor. )
19. Thin Air
20. Thumbing My Way
(Dedicated to someone who is here tonight and they lived in Seattle for awhile.  His band never took off.  They had a hit in Belgium.  So if you are out there tonight Cliff Poncier, this one is for you.-Reference to a character in the Singles film that fronted a band portrayed by members of Pearl Jam.)
21. Breath
22. Do The Evolution
23. Black / Time Heals-(Rundgren) 20 second tag
24. Rearviewmirror

Encore Break 2
(Because of the curfew I want to introduce the next song quickly…my daughters went to the Berlin Wall and we want to dedicate this to Roger Waters and to thank him for educating us)
25. Comfortably Numb-(Gilmour, Waters)
26. Alive
27. Rockin' In The Free World-(Young) w/ J. Mascis
(Ed thanks the audience and the crew.  He thanks the promoter who has worked with them for years.)

    IT'S OKAY 

    Um. Beyond that:

    Pros: cool set list, a few new songs for us, and, again, IT'S OKAY.

    Cons: freaking hot day, seriously drunk crowd , and the band didn't go on until nearly 8p.m., thus the show felt rushed.

    It was cool to hear several songs that we hadn't heard before. Krakow remains the highlight of this leg, to me.

     I think streams would be hard to find, since cell signal was not there.

    This is a long shot, but I have two Berlin posters and want to trade one for a Krakow one. (If this doesn't work out, I will sell the Berlin poster at the regular price and might even just bring it to you if you're still in the Berlin area this week).
    About the show: energetic crowd, that's for sure :) A bit too much at times, but maybe I was just in a more peaceful mood tonight :)
    Like in Krakau, met several nice people from all over the world, spreading the PJ love! I do hope the two Slovenian girls made it out alive :)

  • Impossible to rank the shows I’ve attended (40+), but this was definitely a stand out. Crazy energy that was reminiscent of mid 90’s shows. What a venue, too. 

    Cant wait for the home shows

    Weird they keep crossing out Can’t Deny Me lately. Any other reason behind that besides time?

    Pretty solid show. First Wash, IMT, Habit, and Thumbing My Way for me. Love that I’ve gotten a handful of firsts at every show this run. Band seemed to be having fun. In losing some of his upper register Ed seems to have remembered how to really dig into those high notes (see Deep from this show.) Venue was cool, but goddamn the sun was brutal and only cash with no ATMs was unfortunate. Probably my least favorite of the three shows, but one of the better PJ runs I’ve seen

    The crowd was crazy!
    As there was no separate section for the 10c we all ended up together and with the pushes coming from behind it felt like mayhem!
    I started very central in front of Eddie, 15 “rows” away from the rails. After the first 11 songs I was in “row” 5
    Amazing show!
    Amazing experience!

    The crowd just killed it tonight. From Wash to Rockin just a perfect set that didnt give the crowd a chance for a let down.

    This is at the top for me, and the Philly 10 show may have been dethrowned.

    Thank you German and all the other fans from the World the decended on Waldbühne you made this a life moment.

    Everyone buy this Boot!

    This was my my twenty something show and by far the best.

    waldbuhne is a gorgeous venue. starting with wash, sometimes,... sound got better and better with each song.

    The guy in the seat in front of me pointed J. Mascis out, then when ed mentioned him he waved very dryly, and the kid next to him (son?) thought that was hilarious. 
    First time I got to hear habit, awesome!! 

    Then daughter with it’s ok tag, still can’t grasp that feeling... been watching the touring band dvd for a million times, never thought I would see this one live ever, and now I saw it two times in Berlin, and what a version it was...

    Requested thin air... and it was played!!! give me a year or so and then I’ll be able to reflect on that truly amazing feeling of hearing that beautiful song in such a nice setting. Stone and mike were pointing at each other who almost screwed that lick after the first verse (they didn’t, but it was close)
    Thumbing my way... I don’t know how but German crowds, they listen to music, no chattering, no iPhones, just the music.

    comfortably numb is still ringing in my ears... had to think of the departed where that song is playing when the undercover played by di caprio is making out with his shrink, awesome version!
    mikes solo in black was one of the best ever, he certainly had one of those nights when he was channeling stuff. My wife calls him a tiger When he’s making small turns like a tiger in a cage.
    j Mascis is an awesome guitar player, ritfw rocked!!!

    awesome show, awesome venue, awesome crowd, awesome city, best band in the world, thank you!!

    We were discussing with friends before the show saying that they cannot beat Krakow unless they want to...well they did wanted to. That was an amazing show. I feel very lucky that I chose to be in Prague, Krakow and Berlin this year. Tomorrow I am heading back home with a huge smile on my face.

    Wow! What the f**k! What a fantastic show! Entrance was incredibly horrible and not really organized imo. but the concert was absolutely brilliant. 
    I took some videos, so if You're interested, just click the link in the signature. 
    If someone has a poster he( she wants to sell, just let me know. Button also would be great. Both was sold out when I arrived at the venue. The Berlin shirt also, but I don't like it, so its not as important as the other 2 things .

    Possibly the 'shortest' out of my 18 shows, but definitely the sweetest. Just an amazing night in Berlin. 

    Thanks to all.

    Oh and btw, J.Mascis ate the fuck out of that guitar in RITFW, what a treat.

    Completely agree...this was one of the all time greats. If it wasn’t for the firm 10:30 curfew it would have edged out Amsterdam.
