    Good stuff, maybe they will play the entire new album, or at least slip getaway in!

    I remember soundcheck rumored to start at between 3-5pm per the 10C fenway contest winner e-mail (correct me if I'm wrong). The band went on around 7:53pm if i remember right. Prior to the band you could hear, what i assume was techs testing out gear. Tarp covered the view for everyone. Unsure if what i thought is techs jamming could have been a few band members. Doubt it. Someone feel free to correct me.


    Here is what i heard overall between possible tech jam, and the band.

    Rockin' in the Free World riffs
    Corduroy riffs
    Wishlist riffs
    Wash riffs

    (Wishlist)
    Satan's Bed riffs

    Full band soundcheck:

    (Last Kiss)
    Sirens
    Low Light riffs
    Wash riffs
    (Speed of Sound)
    Parachutes
    All Those Yesterdays
    Lightning Bolt
    Swallowed Whole
    (Angel)
    Angel
    (Angel)
    Sleeping By Myself
    (Just Breathe)
    Society
    Masters of War
    Love Reign O'er Me
    Draw the Line (Aerosmith)
    I've Got A Feeling
    Strangest Tribe
    (Strangest Tribe)

    Wrigley was around 7or 8 night before if I remember correctly. Been outside for Fenway before. It's pretty loud

    The soundcheck was amazing and I would never have caught this without your post (thank you very, very much!!!).

    FYI...Draw the Line (Aerosmith), I've Got A Feeling and Strangest Tribe I do not believe were played by the band. I think this was music that was being played by the roadies as they were putting stuff away. The sound was way muted and I think that the band was off the stage by then (I would love to be wrong on this BTW).

    Also, saw the guys and shook Ed's hand after sound check (he signed my 2004 World Series ball with Fenway dirt on it) so it was an amazing night. Also hung out with a cool fan from TX who used to live in MA...

    Cant wait for the shows!!!

    Like I said hopefully I am wrong on this! Maybe they sound-checked them in stealth mode?

    It may have been loud inside Bleachers Bar with the chatty people, but no way would i mistake hearing Ed's unique vocal tone. It was definitely the band hammering away at those tunes
    i have witnessed some performances. i have soaked up a lot of memories.

    That is so cool! Congrats!
    Were you waiting at the gate in Lansdowne Street? And did Eddie leave shortly after 10:30? If so, I may need your testimony for my divorce petition. My husband made me leave!!!

    I left after to eat dinner. My luck is either scenario:

    1. I leave and band appears/super quick meeting with people

    2. I stay and band hightails it into an awaiting vehicle

    Speed of Sound, Parachutes, and Sirens? This is the worst setlist ever! :lol:

    I absolutely love Parachutes. :)

    That's what I was thinking...I think the last song played by the band was Reign Over Me.

    Agreed. I heard notes if I Got a Feeling, but didn't hear Ed singing it.

    Honestly I really dig Parachutes as well, I just know it gets hated on a lot. The other two? No thanks.

    Are they playing Bonnie Raitt on the sound system right now, or is that her actually singing? Playing the same song twice.

    Sounds nice, but I can't imagine her as a surprise opener for Pearl Jam!!!

    Hopefully!
    Glad I was wrong on this!!! They definitely turned down the amps while they were playing these three songs. I heard them, but couldn't tell if it was live or Memorex - :-). Stealth sound check...Nice!!!

    So I guess we can look forward to Angel tonight (fingers crossed)?
