    I thought the show was unreal. Never leave discounted!! I love this band!

    For a band with their catalog, yes... playing over 25% of your setlist as covers is excessive.

    Almost as bad as Guns N Roses, they peaked at 33 songs and 10 covers during their recent European tour :lol:

    I could have done w/o some of the covers, I mean if you are going to do a cover, then do Black Hole Sun or something Soundgarden as a Chris Cornell tribute, now that would have been a cover, so yeah aside from some of those covers a few (3 or 4) of which may have kind of killed the shows momentum, I thought the rest of the setlist was really awesome & totally look forward to Friday, some of you thought it sucked apparently judging by some of the comments, maybe I am delusional, but I fucking loved it

    Absolutely.  Some bands play the same setlist night after night.  You'll all be crying when the band takes a break from touring.

    Weak set list. Think a lot of this is due to Ed’s voice just hasn’t recovered. Painful to watch him try to get through these shows. Not sure if it’s age, cigarettes, or years of use. Gotta a feeling this will be the last of live shows for a long time if not for good. Respect the fact he tries to give 110 percent each night. No band has given back as much to their fans
    sorry but this is just plainly bullshit.

    Setlist looked pretty good from afar. Heard the crowd wasnt too great, but the performance was amazing. 

    This is part 1 of a two night affair, sets up night 2 very nicely for me

  • They've been a band for approaching thirty years. You ever think they are sick of playing some of these songs? I don't give a damn what they play and I would LOVE to hear Again Today at Fenway.
    looking to hear of the earth

    last time I saw them was Wrigley 1 in 2016...I was stunned by how much I liked the cover songs that evening. 

    it's all good to me, especially within a 3 hour show.

    It's terrible.  It's pathetic.  9 covers.  3 songs from Riot Act, Binaural, Avacado, Backspacer and No Code combined.  When I go to a PJ concert, I want to hear PJ songs. Awful.

    Oh, the audacity of people who want to hear Pearl Jam songs at a Pearl Jam concert. 

    What will they think of next? 

  • know1know1 Posts: 6,554
    I don't have much problem with it. I thought the setlist looked good.
    The only people we should try to get even with...
    ...are those who've helped us.

    Right 'round the corner could be bigger than ourselves.

    If someone was at the show and has a critique, that's one thing. I'm not hearing it if someone is reading a setlist online.
  • I don’t actually think of a lot of these as covers at all. I think again today is one of the best Pearl Jam songs - yeah they didn’t write it but their arrangement is nothing like the original and kicks ass. patriot, ritfw, throw your hatred down, and I’ve gotta feeling are all basically Pearl Jam songs at this point too. And I can’t wait to hear their take on the white stripes tune. Looked like a fun show to me.

    There is definitely a few people around here who need to stop buying tickets. They really dont seem to get anything out of the experience yet keep going, and as a result the moaning cycle continues. 

    Its fair enough to point out the amount of covers, but 'terrible', 'pathetic' and 'awful'.....really?

    Some of GNR's biggest hits are covers though, and was released as singels.

    My point is... you weren’t happy about the poster drops and some weren’t happy with the amount of covers.  You both should get to post your opinions.

    Just wow....reading some comments this morning about "too many covers" "I had people next to me who had a lower ten club number than me".

    I would have loved to have been anywhere at that show last night. 

    Yes everyone has an opinion but I now class some of those covers as part of the PJ live experience and really enjoy them, particularly Comfortably numb and Baba

    Each to their own but please lightnen up.
