The show was really nice, although i can't believe that 10club tickets are now being shoved to the side of the stage. I'm also pretty disappointed at the short set list. The night was a good one....full of energy, etc. It really looked like the guys were having a good time.
First night was a pretty good short set and I enjoyed myself. Night 2 sucked as it was the same fucking show as night one, besides maybe 3 songs like Long Road and Unemployable. Worst PJ show Ive ever seen of the 10 or so I have been to. Many fans had their heads down after the show.
100$, keep it Pearl Jam next time.
10 C tickets have always been pushed to side stage, once you get past a certain point on the floor. I would much rather sit there than 15-20 rows back on the floor.
I loved where I sat. I could see frickin' everything. It was sweet.
This was my first show as a 10c member and thought the seats on the side were perfect. The set was great with some unexpected songs and they really rocked the short set. Would've liked to hear life wasted, but oh well. What was the deal with someone in the front row throwing money on stage?
Yeah that vest he was wearing was unique to say the least.
Wow, I am glad to have been there! (July 2nd 2006)
Three of us actually, from KS...
Personally, I thought it was awesome to open with WWS and Severed Hand, then to Hail Hail. That was a great open for the show. 3rd time seeing Pearl Jam, and Tom Petty.
1st time, KC 2000, I screwed up Ed during Jeremy by waving my "surprise left" ..and he can be heard laughing while forgetting the lyrics there if you listen to that show... 2nd time, KC 2003, got absolutely amazing 10c tix being a fan from way back (not way way back though) and it was even better... Row "M" center seats, didn't care about the rain, and truly felt like a part of the club being there...
I think anyone who really was disappointed, should consider they weren't at a video arcade where they can put coins into machines and play their favorite games. These are rockstars here, and they do what they please, in hopes of pleasing as wide an audience as possible while still being creative about a setlist...
..speaking of setlist, the whole show was good. From both bands.
Present Tense was powerful... didn't expect to witness that song. While “Bee Girl” was playing, I was in the middle of a beer line... didn't care and ran back out to catch it, and I'm glad there was also a kind “blogger” who posted a video clip of that, along with a nice review. Personally, I thought vocals were the tightest I've heard. (Listening to Even Flow now, I can really hear the backup vocals like never before, and they were well done.. Ed was also at the TOP of his game IMHO).
PJ had much better sound (way up where we were..) than Petty... his vocals were begging to be turned up... should've rejoined the TEN club before going, but I will anyway since it's lapsed. The girl who bought tickets surprised me by getting us all a ticket, and before we knew it, were ready to go. Didn't care one bit that we were section 316, way way up there, the show was still excellent.
Everything about the show was something special. Playing in Denver was part of it, being with Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, playing w/their guitarist, and later keyboardist, Ed singing w/them on TWO songs... the rare little gem that is BeeGirl, a bit of thanks for the soldiers, Bu$hleaguer, and a ripping performance of their "hits."
I was, and still am satisfied to have had that experience. All the better with Tom Petty I thought, really, how often does one get such an experience? That guy is still kicking it pretty hardcore for the 30th year, I mean, come on...
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU PEARL JAM for putting out not only THESE shows, but for the VINYL finally!!!
Ok, one more thing ...FLAC is many many times better than an mp3 (no matter how well encoded!!!) and THANK YOU for putting those up for the shows... WELL worth the extra $5 for the sonic qualities.
ps. thank you moderators for finally registering me so I could post my 2 cents on the show.
..simply to cheer with ...ran back out to see BeeGirl as soon as I heard 2 chords!
Has Jeff ever played the guitar for PJ before instead of the bass? I don't recall ever hearing of that or seeing it. It was certainly unexpected.
I'm listening to the boots right now from Denver and I have a huge shit-eating grin on my face.
he plays guitar on "Smile" while Stone plays bass. When I saw Jeff with a guitar, I originally thought we were getting "Smile." Then I saw it was an acoustic and went, "What the fuck?"
great, great moment
Ah, cool. I didn't know that. In listening to the boot, Mike's solo in Evenflow sounds SO much better than what I heard on night one while in the arena I actually thought he was having problems with his guitar at the time, but the boot is making me wonder if just my position in the arena (Stone's side in the bowl).

I like the band mixing for the last song. I had no idea that Petty's guitarist (Mike Campbell?) was so awesome. That dude rocks!
The new songs. First time seeing them live, and was very impressed - loved Comatose!
FU to the dumb blonde girl who stood in front of us waving her cell phone up high so someone could listen on the other end....you suck for blocking our view you stupid b
I've tried not to get sucked back in to this board b/c I know how adicting it can be...but this show was completely disappointing. I travelled 8 hours from Omaha to see PJ not TP. I was expecting PJ to play their normal 2.5-3 hour/25-30 song set rather than a mere 1.5 hours/18 songs especially when I see the 30 song set list they played last night in San Diego. I've seen PJ 14 times now and I've never been so let down (probably b/c this was the only show I was able to see this tour). I have nothing against TP but he was not what I drove that far for when I thought I had PJ fan club tickets to a PJ concert. It would have been nice if they each played 2 hour sets to make the $100 ticket worth it.
First pearl jam show and I couldn't be happier. After driving 7 hours from Lincoln, NE, I went into this concert knowing that I wouldn't be getting a regular pearl jam set, but when your in the 6th row it makes for an incredible experience. I posted about this in one of the boards already but long story short, i scored some 6th row seats off ticketmaster 6 days before the show. Pearl Jam brought the rock and the crowd was absolutly loving them. From the drum solo in Evenflow, to Mike's solos all night, and then members of the Heartbreakers filling in for Boom and coming out for the encore it was an amazing night. I do have to brag a little though because when Eddie came out to do American Girl with Tom Petty he threw the tamborines in the crowd and the lady behind me actually got it. However she was nice enough to let me and my other two buddies tear a piece of the drum head that was on the tamborine. We then tore off a couple more chunks of our piece for 2 ten club members sitting in front of us and they were stoked about that. What a great show and by far the best concert I have ever been to. Now I wish Pearl Jam would add a 3rd leg and play either Omaha or Kansas City!
YES! I drove from KC to watch it but bought 10 club tickets thinking I was going to be in Wyoming at the time. Distance is not a concern when given the chance to watch PJ for the first time. A KC or Omaha show would be a delight though. How in the hell did you get such tickets? I am extremely envious of you....
