    The GA re-entry was a shit-show, and we're lucky nobody got hurt. Too bad for the people originally on the rail. I know we were about 6 rows back on MM side at first, but by the time we got back we were at least 20 back and over by the screen. Frustrating.

    That said, the set was fun. Memorable night, to be sure!

    Nice photo opportunity man! Definitely jealous of that. 

    If Chicago (the city and Wrigley) won you over with the shit weather while you were here, you would fall in love with it on some sunny summer days.
    Definitely loved everything Chicago had to offer!  I really like the midwest feel.  My only other experience in the midwest was St. Louis and man oh man did chicago blow that city away on all fronts.

    That was one great sequence of songs.  To me immortality is one of their best songs, they simply destroy it live.  And god does Matt Cameron absolutely kill it at the end...wow.

    That show probably nudges its way into my top five. Just a phenomenal night; the first 2/3 of the main set were absolute nails and the "second encore" was magic (and I finally finished Vs). Also, pro tip for the next Wrigley rain delay: as soon as it's announced, run to the back of the 200 level, not to the concourse. Get there, grab a couple drinks, lean against the rail and wait out the storm. We had a great time - so much better than the 2013 clusterfuck underneath.
    Monday was my wife's first time seeing Pearl Jam and not hearing "Breath" and "Alone." 
    I kind of needed my love of Pearl Jam to be rekindled (nothing bad, just evolution, baby). This weekend provided it.

    Anyone know what was up with the theo shirt?
    He wore it at Theo's charity event last year in Boston. Was a trend of "Who the fuck is..." shirts around that time. All in good fun.

    Two weeks later I can only wonder what would have happened if there was no rain delay. The band and crowd were on fire.  It could have cracked my top five of all time....who knows.  Still a solid show.

    In retrospect, I think it's still up there purely for the "this storm will not stop us" vibe I think the crowd and band had. Loud, angry, very little pauses - cram a 3+ hour setlist into whatever's available. I know most people in the GA area around me were happy not to go home empty handed with a cancelled show. Baseball stadium shows generally slowly roll in with mellow songs to ease into the evening - this was straight up foot-on-pedal pacing.

    Just like 2013, the "what ifs" make it a little more memorable, and surviving the rain conditions is one hell of a way to feel alive. I mean, sure, I'd love to see the setlist before the one they had to have rewritten once the storm delay was imminent. But like the Let's Play Two segment that equates Vedder to a baseball manager changing his lineup or calling up a pitcher from the bullpen, the flow to that setlist was an awesome change of pace.

    I too wonder what the OG setlist was..... would've been interesting to see that, but I would probably ending up cursing the weather.

    I thought the setlist leaked very early for this one. It was definitely out at 5:30pm when we were standing in the GA pit. Buddy beside me was talking about it and I asked him if he would not spoil it for us. I was told after it was the same set. Unless Eddie made the set knowing there was a possibility of the delay and made it around that pre-emptively.

    The setlist could've been the exact same, but missing the more mellow intro off the slower starters like Pendulum, Release, Elderly Woman and Corduroy to transition into the more uptempo songs like GTF. 

    As long as someone doesn't confirm they cut Red Mosquito, I'm totally fine with the set we got.  :)

    Ok so I was fortunate to go to a good number of shows this year.  Seattle 2 was the best overall but no 15-20 minute segment anywhere came close to the Immortality/ Daughter (It's Ok)/ Unthought Known/ Jeremy segment of Chicago 2.  I still can't believe that happened.

    In My Tree was before Immortality. I’ll add that one too  ;)
