    oh scary... 40000 morbidly obese christians wearing fanny packs invading europe is probably the least scariest thing since I watched an edited version of The Care Bears movie in an extremely brightly lit cinema.

    It was in the making. Sadly, Mr. Livingstone didn't listen and is putting commercialism above anything else.

    Sad times... great venue.

    Best gig of my life bar none, and I don't think it'll ever be beaten.

  • JimNasticsJimNastics Posts: 671
    Daaaaaamn I missed it!!! :lol: My wife said to me yesterday, "is it the Astoria anniversary soon"? I broke out in a cold sweat. Cranking the boot today as a late celebration :)

    In related news, I finally managed to snag an official Astoria 06 gig t-shirt on ebay, having missed out at the gig... they don't come around often. I am a very happy man.

    Wow! this Thread is still going! As the 7th Anniversary of this awesome occasion is nearly upon us, I thought I would raise a relevant question...........

    This was my first Pearl Jam show after years of not being able to afford to travel etc and i was lucky enough to bag some tickets. I would like have a memento to remember it by, as there was no official poster for the Gig I was hoping that some of you would have a photo of the setlist or know where I can find one, so I can make a copy and frame it with my ticket to go up on my wall. I would be eternally grateful if you could help.

    Thank You!!
    My body is a temple come kneel at my prayer mat.

    My first ever show!
    The night before tickets went on sale, I stayed up all night chatting to new friends I'd made on here. In the morning, I was refreshing TM and at 08:58 the tickets popped up and I grabbed two. Probably the most excited I'd ever been at that point. I literally ran outside and danced in the rain haha.

    What a show this was. I vividly remember the floor bouncing during Even Flow :)
    And who can forget the Scots flashing Ed haha!

    Had a quick chat and a beer afterwards with Kelly from Stereophonics!

    I'm still sad there isn't more footage or better audio of this show out there. The bootleg is pretty good but I really wish the band would've released it officially. Such a special night!
