    Amazing show! Hopefully. They come back before another six years!

    guess that's not going to happen. :bawling:

    I've been lucky enough to have chance encounters with 3.5 members of the band. (the .5 is for Boom; not because I don't consider him a member of the band, but only because I walked past him and it took me a minute to realize who he was).

    First was Boom in the French Quarter of New Orleans, the night before 2010 Jazz Fest. I walked by him and did a double-take, and he looked back and smiled. I didn't chase him down. We had just gotten engaged. Didn't want to ruin the moment. Sorry Boom.

    Second was the Jeff story above. 9.17.11.

    Third was Matt in Amsterdam. 6.26.12. Here's the original story: http://community.pearljam.com/discussion/comment/4502883#Comment_4502883

    Fourth was Stone in St. Paul. 10.18.14. Here's the original story: http://community.pearljam.com/discussion/238433/st-paul-pub-crawl-saturday-october-18-2014-st-paul-mn-7pm#latest

    It's been so much fun, especially because I never waited one second for anyone. All chance meetings. No autographs, and only two of them did I get a photo with. Just awesome memories.

    Man...they really need to play some shows soon!

    Why Go -> Animal-> All Night one two three punch to start the show was amazing. the previous winnipeg show in 2005 started with Betterman, so to say that was an improvement is an understatement.

    My 10th show in their 20th year, and bought my 10club ticket on my 30th birthday.....Winning the lottery winding up standing front and center between Jeff and Ed was like a dream come true...the peak of the mountain. Then throw in the fact that between Corduroy and Arms Aloft, Ed leans over the edge of the stage towards me and tosses one of his Bullseye picks slowly into my hands while saying "You're the best dressed person in the stadium" then back to his mic stand.

    could'nt believe it!

    Held him up during alive, sipped some wine from the bottle, and managed to collect enough of mike's picks which he freely tosses out to spell out his name with four picks M.I.K.E. on each pick.

    Pretty Awesome!

    The next morning at Pankcake House my best friend and I were trying to piece the whole night, and thought to pick up the Winnipeg Free Press to read a better account of the events the night before....and there it was....or we were...See image! Now you see why I was the best dressed ;)
