    1. 4/12/92-  Limelight - lucked into this one. Walking by a church on my way to a Sunday work dinner I see that PJ is playing there so I ask about tickets. Bouncer looks at me, in a suit, and says, "I'll give you a wrist band right now to get in later, cause there's no tickets"  - Left work dinner early to go. It was INSANE show. I was hooked.  
    This is an AMAZING story!! I’m too young to have been around for the 92 days but always wistfully look at the Limelight when I walk by it, knowing an amazing show happened in there so many years ago.

    1. Gorge 2005
    2. Boise 2000
    3. Vancouver 2013

    In context these are the shows that didn't make my top 3 (in no particular order except the shows below are my favourites that didn't make it):

    Seattle II 2016
    Vancouver 2000 (The Commodore - Pearl Jam in a bar - and it doesn't make my top 3..  :(  )
    Wrigley I & II 2016
    Seattle II 2000
    Seattle II 1998
    Vancouver 1998
    Missoula 1998
    Gorge I and II 2006
    Pemberton 2016
    Vancouver 2005

    I love the love I'm seeing in the previous pages for Vancouver 2005 and 2013.   Vancouver's a bit light on 10c members, so there's not enough of us to express how amazing the Vancouver shows are.

    I have a really hard time not putting Pemberton in my top 3.    It was an amazing show.   It's also the bootleg we've listened to the most from the 2013-2018 era of concerts.    To be honest I waffled at putting Vancouver '13 or Pemberton '16 as #3 in my top 3.    I think it's amazing that I consider those shows to be better than the 4 stadium shows I've been too.  Especially Wrigley II '16 and Seattle II '18 which were pretty amazing shows.

    It's cool that Vancouver flies under the radar.   So much less hassle at those shows :)

    2. May 1, 2016- After a 16 year hiatus from PJ shows (life got in the way, a divorce and subsequent remarriage of a huge PJ fan had me not listening- nothingman will forever kick my ass) I decided we had to see them. Only time in my life I used stubhub for scalped tickets. 
    3. Wrigley 2 -2018 - closest I've ever been, moved back 1-12 people due to storm kinda sucked but still had a ball. 
    holy shit, you were at the limelight show?!  any photos?
    Photos?? I was lucky to be there. I think it was sold out and one of the security guards thought it was funny a suit wanted to go!! I had no camera, camera phones were unheard of.... I wish I had anything other than memories....
    We can relive that show on you tube thank god. What an incredible night that was. Truly the rock n roll church

    It’s a sin what it is now. It pains me as well when I walk by it. Between Pearl Jam and seeing Alice In Chains there it makes me a

    #1 Philly 10/30/09.  The set list was just tremendous, didn’t even know what a gift it was at that time. I was always more of a casual fan that wanted to hear Jeremy and Alive etc. This was the show that spoke to me and told me to listen to all the songs and not just skip through the lesser-known ones. One of my favorite boots ever!

    #2 Boston May 10?  2010. I should remember the date of that show because that was the day I had front row tickets to see the guys. It was amazing!  Was really hoping to get release for an opener and heard those chords and I was just so thankful. 

    #3  Number three is a tossup. I cannot choose between the Fenway #1 show, second night of PJ 20 (NO WAY!! Never thought they would play that) Or Halloween in Philly the last night of the Spectrum.

    That's just it, I never even knew it was there. 

    My firm picked up a big hospital for a client and flights, for a 40 minute flight were $500, so the firm decided we should drive, on Sunday, because the extra $400 in out of pocket per person was cheaper than $500.  Then, on top of it, have a MANDATORY dinner in the city, on a fucking Sunday night? I was pissed.  So when I see that a new band I really like is playing a club, I figure, what can go wrong? 

    I never went there again, I would only spend 4-6 weeks a year down there, most of it in late winter/ early spring.  The only other cool bands I saw down there were Ramones and Lou Reed.

    Vancouver shows are always kickass!

    I've done:

    2005 (my 1st show)
    2009
    2011
    2013 (amazingly underrated show!)
    2016 (Pemberton Festival - maybe the best bootleg I own)

    2000 I did not win tickets to the commodore unfortunately 
    After living my most of my first 45 years in Southern Ontario, I've recently moved to the Vancouver area. I really hope I get to see a PJ show here in the near future. Those setlists from 2011 and 2013 look fantastic!
    Auckland 1998, Toronto 1 2011, London 2013, Buffalo 2013, Toronto 1&2 2016
  • 1) Sacramento 1995- still, to this day, the concert by which I judge all others. I’ve even got the setlist, my most prized piece of PJ memorabilia...
    2) Seattle 2018- night one of the home shows. Well worth the 12 hour drive, especially for my girlfriend, who’s first (hopefully of many) time it was. Also visited Easy Street and the Pearl Jam exhibit at MoPOP on this trip. 
    3) Mountain View/Shoreline 1994- Bridge Shool Benefit Show, my first time seeing the greatest band of all time, and the rest of the lineup was pretty excellent, as well!

    4) (not Pearl Jam, exactly, but well worth mentioning) San Francisco 2016- TOTD, a week before my birthday. Enough said. 😉

    I wrote this posting for another forum, it ranks all the shows I saw. I just decided to copy and paste it.
    #1 Salzburg 2000: great outdoor show right in the middle of a beautiful city, perfect weather, my first show and - as the boootleg shows - one of the top Euro 2000 performances.
    #2 Vienna 2014: great performance, nice setlist and I knew that my child would be born in a few days. Awesome experience!
    #3 Vienna 2006: very good show at the end of the Euro tour 2006, had a great time with a few friends who weren't even casual fans. They loved it!
    #4 Berlin 2018: it wasn't the tightest performance but I had a great time at Waldbühne. Sometimes it felt like it was 1992 all over again with all that moshing and crowdsurfing in the front rows. I didn't think that that would still be possible at one of their shows. I already saw Neil Young at that venue and it is really georgeous! After Salzburg my favourite venue to see them.
    #5 Munich 2007: travelled to Munich the day after my birthday and spent the day in this beautiful city. The arena was half empty (but the few that were there were really loud so it didn't matter), but the band was really tight that day. I still remember the floor vibrating when they did Whipping. And: I couldn't believe that they did Throw your hatred down. Didn't see that one coming.
    #6 Berlin I + II 2012: following the lacklustre show in Prag these were very good. I had a great time and enjoyed both evenings immensly, especially setlistwise. Saw so many songs for the first time here.
    #7 Stockholm 2012: probably the best performance of the 2012 shows I saw but I didn't particularly care for the setlist. I think, it was the longest of those Euro shows, that was a nice bonus.
    #8 NovaRock 2007: very short festival set and they had a few problems with their equipment (the day before they were scheduled to play a festival in Venice that was cancelled due to stormy weather. A few things that already were on stage got damaged). Nevertheless: nice show and like Munich really tight. You know it's a good one when a song that you've heard a hundred times gets you. Corduroy did the trick that day. But all in all it was too short to amount to much...
    #9 Prag 2012: first show I saw with my wife. Unfortunately the sound in that arena was atrocious (during Push me, pull me you couldn't hear the guitars. First I thought that it was an equipment malfunction, but on the boot you can hear that everything's there). Performance wasn't great either, in fact, I think it's the worst of the 2012 boots. Only good thing was the good crowd.

    Also saw both Eddie solo shows in London in 2012 (excellent) and the one in Berlin 2017 (very good).

    Salzburg 2000, Vienna 2006, Munich 2007, Novarock 2007, Prag, Berlin 1 + 2, Stockholm 2012, EV London 1 + 2 2012, Vienna 2014, EV Berlin 2017, Berlin 2018

    St. Louis Vote For Change 10/05/04 – Fox Theatre: St. Louis, MO
    This show was incredible!  Wish I had a soundboard recording of this :(
    attendance: approx 4,500
    support act: Gob Roberts, Death Cab for Cutie
    Ed’s pre-set: Last Kiss
    set: Love Boat Captain, Last Exit, Animal, Save You, The American in Me, Corduroy, Immortality, Alone, Jeremy, In My Tree, Wishlist, Rearviewmirror
    enc 1 (acoustic): I Am A Patriot (Ed solo), Man Of The Hour, Elderly Woman, Off He Goes, All Or None, Black
    enc 2: The Seeker, Do The Evolution, State Of Love And Trust, Better Man/(Save It For Later), The New World (w/Tim Robbins), Fortunate Son
    enc 3: Yellow Ledbetter
    PJ makes a return to the Fabulous Fox Theatre, a beautiful, acoustically sound venue, after ten years. Ed is wearing a brown shirt with Bush’s face on it that says “Expires Nov ’04.” After ‘Corduroy,’ Ed says, “It’s about time this group played a classy joint!” (in comparison to the prior arenas). ‘Alone’ again catches many off guard and Ed’s vocals are nearly spot on with the original recordings but the harmonies are missing, filled by guitarwork. ‘Wishlist’ has the “I wish I was the president …” tag and includes some language about Dick Cheney and how you can’t sacrifice the lives of American men and women for a war that appears to be profit driven … “it will be Dick Cheney who is not forgiven.” This leads to a well-received and strong ‘RVM,’ concluding the first set. Upon returning, there is a toast to St. Louis and one to the whole state with some discussion about how only 1/3 of those between 18 and 22 vote and a plea to register and vote and that they don’t really care how people vote. Ed says actually they do care (“That’s why we’re here …”) and that leads to a lovely ‘Patriot’ with just Ed and his guitar. ‘MOTH’ is dedicated to Johnny Ramone, really lovely and a nice showcase for Ed’s deep range. ‘Elderly Woman’ includes a bauble (Ed notes, “I fucked up”) and he could tell since the crowd was singing along. ‘Off He Goes’ is beautiful and ‘All Or None’ again seems to be a bit lost on the crowd (and it would be nice to see Mike go a bit longer on the ending solo). Ed turns the end of ‘Black’ over to the crowd and it is a nice finish to the acoustic set. The next set begins with the normally quiet Stone talking quite a bit, thanking St. Louis and reminding people it is important to vote. Very solid set follows with so much excitement during ‘DTE’ that someone in the front of the balcony nearly falls. A brief, cheerful band huddle follows and they go with Mike’s selection of ‘SOLAT’ to keep the momentum going. ‘Wishlist’ slows things down but has a solid ‘Save It For Later’ tag with some “please vote” lyrics intermingled. During ‘The New World,’ Tim Robbins and Ed square off and slam into each other (you can guess who won … not Ed; Tim is tall!). The fun continues into a high spirited ‘Fortunate Son.’ Ed toys with the Bush mask a bit but there is no ‘Bushleaguer.’ ‘YL’ finishes, featuring a short ‘Star Spangled Banner’ tag by Mike.

    My immediate answer happens to be all from the same venue.
    Alpine Valley 2003 and both PJ20 shows.

    Don't think I need to go into the PJ20 shows.  The 03 Alpine Valley show was incredible.  From the setlist, being the first time I saw an outdoor show, bands energy, the crowd.  Such a great show.  

    A couple of near misses are Kitchener 05, Toledo 96 (my first show), and Chicago 09 N1 (I won the 10club lottery and was first row) 



    There's a trapdoor in the sun.

    Kitchener 2005 (loudest crowd I've heard- and Eddie with a bottle of wine during encore maybe I'm just drunk but its fn loud in here) 
    Champaign 2003 (Eddie saying this feels like the coliseum and I snuck in a bottle to a dry concert were memorable, however some fan yelling YL while Eddie was talking so he said we were going to play it but not now was a bummer- curse that fan!)
    Hawaii 12/2 2006 (Amazing Hawaii 78, long encore songs Inside job and crazy mary, and little wing with drums and eddie singing during YL made it the complete package)
