    Did anyone else notice that Ed broke his mike stand smashing it into the stage at the end of Alive? The bottom probably broke. He then grinned and showed Jeff and he chuckled too.

    Ed didn't just break it, he practically drop kicked the damn thing! haha

    Ed was definitely working hard last night to get the crowd going...i'm amazed at his energy.

    He didn't break it, he smashed a hole through the stage with it! I was front row dead center (won the lottery, thanks 10c!). It was hilarious seeing Jeff's face though! After he showed Jeff, Eddie crouched down as if he was going to get into the whole and sing from down there.

    Great show

    oh shit, I just assumed Ed could not do that because the stage had to top quality, but that is fucking badass !!!!

    It was hilarious that look from Jeff, Ed was impressed with it too lol

    i agree with the first quote "nevmiles"...The real me definatley not my fav for that second encore...it made a perfect ending go from being completely awe to just real real good... either way...wow...i'd to have love to have been there...
  • Second concert this week. Thank you fellas for a great show. I have even more admiration for your professionalism and talent, given the crowd's inability to rock out (so unlike the Toronto show). Loved all the tricks Eddie and crew had up their sleeve to coax the crowd out of their shell. Hope u guys read this post!
  • So right before they played off he goes, ed mentioned that he was going to give us a choice between a more "rocker song" and a more "campfire tune". Assuming that off he goes was the campfire tune, what could have been the "rocker song"? I see some people thinking daughter, but that doesn't seem badass enough for me.

    anyone have a picture of the setlist or know what they were going to play? The crowd freaked out at the first three notes to off he goes so we never got a chance to hear the other option!


    On another note; my third show of the tour (Montreal, Toronto I and Ottawa), and a very nice finish to what was an awesome week. Got 25th row floors 10c seats right on the aisle, which was surreal. Had a very clear view of the stage all night.
    Yes, they did play some repeats from Montreal, but it's not like they were bad repeats (Last Exit, Counter, Alive, Setting Forth, etc.). My highlights had to be "The Real Me" and "Breath and a Scream". Never heard either of them live and it was a nice treat. Was really praying for them to open up with Release, but no dice. Hope you get it in the Hammer tonight! :mrgreen:

    Wow...The Real Me just did it for me! A dream to hear this live! I went crazy!!! Thank you so much for that treat!
    Yes, Ottawa is a bit less into it but what do we care, we heard some great songs again!! :)

    I just uploaded this. From my best guess, Smile was the option, since it's in parenthesis and wasn't played. ...also no Indiff, because it was replaced with Come Back.

    We would have freaked out regardless of what first three notes were played. Eddie's plan was flawed from the start :D Not that I cared. Off He Goes is a great tune, but, yes, it would have been nice to hear the other option . . . .

    I see from the set scan that it was meant to be Indifference instead of Come Back (which was obviously added to be played by request). Either one would have been fine!....

    And after thinking about it a lot today, I think I was too hard on the show . . . it was actually a really great one. Some great songs I hadn't ever heard live (Breath!!!!! Low Light!!!!! and most of the Backspacer tracks), or hadn't heard in a while (Whipping!! MFC!).

    I think the reason I was a tad disappointed originally is because my brother and his friend were there (and other friends of mine), seeing them for the first time and everytime a song came on that I thought they may not recognize, I thought they wouldn't be enjoying themselves (as I had hyped up the show to them!). And to me, for the casual fan, there may have been alot of songs that weren't recognizable, which made me think some of my friends and my brother would be let down . . . but I have yet to hear what they all thought of the show, so hopefully the reviews will be good :)

    But scanning down the setlist again today I realzied that it was quite a great show! And my 15th row seats helped too . . closest I've ever been!

  • This was my 16th show and this is the first time I am leaving a review. I thought the show was awesome. I was pleasantly surprised when my 254XXX ten club number landed me in the 11th row Stone's side! What a treat. I rocked my ass off. I brought my girlfriend to her first Pearl Jam show. At first she was leary and nervous about about going but she hesitantly came. After the show she tells me that the show exceeded every expectation and that it was absolutley the best show she has ever been to. Highlights for me were Breath, Corduroy (I thought it rocked extra hard), RVM, Grievence, and the Real Me. And as an added bonus on the way out I found an EV guitar pick. I had blast and overall it was an excellent time. Thanks guys.

    he definitley held Blake tonight in Hamilton for a second and a half longer than usual too

    his voice does sound really good on this tour and he seems to be in really good spirits. I think hanging out with Mudhoney is bringing it out of him

    The drive into Ottawa went smoothly, and I arrived just in time to park my car at the venue's lot before the lot attendants began charging, which was a bonus. I received 4th row 10C tickets on Stone's side, the last 2 seats at the end of the row closest to the center section. Great sight lines of the band, and a good crowd around me.

    However,I thought the crowd was a little more subdued than Montreal and Toronto but the main set (MFC, Low Light, Whipping, and Breath) more than held its' own. The up tempo material made up for the lull in crowd reactions and noise. The End was a great way to start the encore and Ed pulled it off nicely. It was funny watching Ed turn to Mike during Inside Job for the cues so he'd know when to jump in for his lyrics. Come Back was played for a girl in the front row who recently lost her mother, and she just absolutely lost it right from the start of the song, with Ed consoling her during the song and she also went on to receive a setlist. The Real Me was another encore highlight. I recall Smile and Indifference were on the Ottawa setlist but were dropped.

    Not sure if it was mentioned earlier in the thread but I believe i saw Brisk front row center, wearing his "Matt Fucking Cameron" tee shirt that Matt insisted he trade for one of the crew member tee shirts, 4 drum sticks, and one of Matt's arm sweat bands. Not a bad haul at all.
    To quote the 10C from Newsletter #8: "Please understand we have a lot of members and it is very hard to please everybody. If you are one of those unhappy people...please call 1-900-IDN-TCAR."

    I have lived in Ottawa for 8 years and been to a ton of events at scotia bank place and I had no idea you could even do that.

    So that is what that was. I remember at the end seeing Matt walk to the end of the stage with a bunch of stuff and I wondered what was going on.
  • This is an amazing show and all together there have been a bunch of really creative and great setlists this tour. I can't wait to pick up some of these shows!
    Weary is the mind of one stuck in repetition

    Some of you mentioned about the same songs between Montreal and Ottawa; I agree with that! :(

    But... It was the second show in a row that I was winning the lottery (9th row at Toronto 2, 2nd row tonight!!!) and I can't complain, really. Too bad to see the setlist tonight and that Smile was crossed off and that they changed Indifference for Come Back but... they played The Real Me, which is always cool live!!! And yet, I have to give this to the band; the level of energy never changed between the shows; always at their best!!! You guys are awesome!!

    That's it for me, 4 shows in this tour. Thanks PJ, it was a great run... Oceans will be for a next show!!! ;)

    Hey, congrats on the Lottery! I agree with you about the energy the band has given us. Couldn't have asked for more!
    Toronto 1 was fun--- glad you had fun for your next two shows :D

    I saw the dude wearing the 'matt fucking cameron' shirt as well. Thanks for the info, I wondered what Matt gave him after the show.

    Great show from a great band!

    I'm actually OK with both of those changes. Come Back is beautiful song and, while I would have LOVED Indifference, the dedication made it very worthwhile.
    Smile would have been nice as well, but Off He Goes is a great live track

    I think the rocker was Why Go. Off he goes was an additional.

    I had an amazing night. It was my first show in a very long time. After e show, on the ride back to NY, I grabbed the iPad and wrote down my immediate thoughts. I had planned on posting here but it got far too lengthy to put here. It's a pretty in depth review of the night and my experiences from row 1, seats 25 and 26.

    I truly felt it was a night for the fans. Laura had a huge shout out, as did the girl to my right when she had requested Come Back. From where we stood, it was an emotional night and The band did nothing but connect... It was fantastic.

    Here's my night:

    Please enjoy.


    hi I read you blog. thank you.
    that was me that was front row center that night and that changed my life and helped give me peace, for my mothers passing. Pearl Jam gave me life and continue to give me life. thank you PJ.
  • The Ottawa show, I believe ranks #2 for me on this tour. While maybe the crowd wasn't going as crazy as some other cities, it really just felt like a club show rather than an arena show. Ed was super chatty which was a welcomed changed from the Toronto shows. 5th row on Mike/Jeff's side certainly helped that! While I live in Toronto now, Ottawa is my hometown, and as my 16th show, it was my first time seeing them in Ottawa, so the show was a bit special to me from the start. And to top it all off, I caught 3 guitar picks! 1 from Mike and two that were thrown out after the show. Yet another great night!!

    Keeps getting better & better!! My first visit to the capital city of Ottawa & it was an amazing one! Many of us were thinking "After those nights in Toronto, how can they top it here in Ottawa?" They did!After being in row 13th both nights on the floor @ the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, we got much closer here in Ottawa. 5th row right in front of Mike. The man is an amazing! The whole section was praised with pics, pj20 stickers and his smiles, jumping, pointing that we were went crazy for!! Another great set but the highlight for me was the amazing thank you to Laura from Ed on the The Wishlist Foundation. I love them!! Laura pretty much helped me with my shyness. Back in NYC '08, 2nd pre party, I was behind the table helping out. I was afraid to. But I did well. Then went on to help out @ the Hartford & both Mansfield pre parties. Then started organizing many pre parties there after. She gave me strength & courage. I can't thank her enough!! *hugs!!! Real Me was great! Jeff's bass was fucking loud on that one. The way I like it!!! All in all, it was another great night.

They did!After being in row 13th both nights on the floor @ the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, we got much closer here in Ottawa. 5th row right in front of Mike. The man is an amazing! The whole section was praised with pics, pj20 stickers and his smiles, jumping, pointing that we were went crazy for!! Another great set but the highlight for me was the amazing thank you to Laura from Ed on the The Wishlist Foundation. I love them!! Laura pretty much helped me with my shyness. Back in NYC '08, 2nd pre party, I was behind the table helping out. I was afraid to. But I did well. Then went on to help out @ the Hartford & both Mansfield pre parties. Then started organizing many pre parties there after. She gave me strength & courage. I can't thank her enough!! *hugs!!! Real Me was great! Jeff's bass was fucking loud on that one. The way I like it!!! All in all, it was another great night.

    Nice to meet you at the pre-party! It's always nice to put faces to the names on the board, and thanks for convincing me that my 15th row seats would be decent...... They sure were! Wanted to say hi to Laura/FoxyMop but got distracted - wanted to thank her for organizing, but at least Eddie got to thank her :-)

    Hey all! New member as of tonight but have been listening to PJ since 1991... even before I had ever heard of a band named Nirvana. Ottawa was my first show. Went in not being a hardcore fan but after Wednesday night, I was truly blown away by the band. I was kind of hoping to hear the songs I wanted to hear (6 out of 11 faves) so I wasn't disappointed. Will be seeing them more in the future!
