    What an absolutely wonderful two days of music. From the beautiful, meticulously crafted setlists, the enthusiastic and energetic performances, the genuine interest in both music and fans. Pure awesome.

    Thes shows were 50+ for me, and 5-6 for my sister, and they were an absolute treat...

    I'd go as far as to say epic, although I generally dislike the term unless it is being used by some wannabe hippy Phish fan recounting (in perhaps the only way he/she can) the exctacsy driven coma they experienced during Tweezer Reprise into 2001...

    However, they were in fact epic.

    To be a little more precise, those shows were 25 years in the making, and were collectively filled to the brim with whatever anyone could expect or want from Pearl Jam.

    And to be honest, so much more - standing on the field at Fenway, watching PJ under the shadow of the green monster?!?!?

    Maybe its better to write something along the lines of these shows were good, but could have been better, and the band has a lot of work ahead of itself in preparing for the upcoming Wrigley Field performances... the next 12 days better be spent fine tuning their craft..., but there's nothing really to say:

    Jeff, Mike, Matt, Boom, Eddie, and Stone ABSOLUTELY rocked Fenway.

    On behalf of my sister and I, thank you... to the people behind the scenes, to the band itself, to our (mostly:) wonderful neighbors in the ADA section - thank you thank you thank you.

    lol at your "epic" comment as it goes for Phish fans. PJ fans are the ones that overuse that words. Every single show is "Amazing!" All people do with PJ is look at the setlist and they say it is EPIC! The only time i've ever heard PJ fans be critical of a show is MSG n2 this year. Seems like PJ generally plays the same show each night and last night was special because they challenged themselves by ditching Given to Fly and Porch as I said earlier. At least Phish challenges themselves every single night by trying new things every time they hit the stage. PJ, while amazing, is just canned music opened up on stage.
    Lol, why are you a paying member of PJ's fan club then?
    Because PJ puts on the best rock show ever. Just because I think the fans can be dumb (and only care about merch) doesn't take away from how awesome PJ is.
    I've seen Phish. It sucked IMO. Every song sounded the same. Crowd was okay though.
    I've seen Phish...108 times, lol! The people who love them really love them, and those that don't just really hate it. They're a very polarizing band.

    Both bands are my two favorites, though. No reason to debate who's better. They're both great, and they're each there for those who want to listen.

    Yea, some serious post show depression going on here. I normally don't feel this down after a couple of shows, it's generally been bad after a string of like 5-6 shows but man, been going through the motions at work and it's been rough. Thank god tomorrow's Friday.

    I have something like the...opposite? I'm not sure. I think it's "phantom excitement". Like amputees feel a phantom limb? A week ago, I was excited for the HOB party and Sunday, and then my wife e-mailed that she had bough tickets to the Friday show. I was pretty giddy the rest of the day, and not very productive (very nearly took a half day, but my wife had just worked an overnight, and needed to sleep before the show). Now, I'm thinking back on that, and feeling that same excitement building up inside, but there's nothing going on this weekend. Well, except some rest for my still tired feet.
    lol. Well, now I have a bit of a nervous excitement building up. Excitement because I just decided I'm going to go to Wrigley 1. Nervous because really?!? Am I really going to spend all this money last minute and the best ticket I may be able to get may only allow me to see the band from far away? I hate stadium shows! I haven't bought my plane ticket yet (that's gonna seal the deal) but gonna figure this out tonight.

    So I was in this same post show depression. I started laughing when I saw other post similar emotions. Not sure if it was the show itself or that my run of shows for PJ25 has ended.

    I can't even rank shows anymore. I just get freaking confused. I went to Jax, Greenville (current home city), Columbia, and Fenway II.

    I will not rank the show. It was definitely a top show for me. It was just such a different environment and feel that it is hard to place it. However,I will rank this year as the best PJ year of my life. Fenway 2 was my 25th show (saw others who said same and it is pretty cool that it matches up with PJ25) and it is fitting that my first show (and first concert ever) 20 years ago was also a baseball field (ft lauderdale). This is the most shows I've seen in 1 year. They were all awesome but to get Vs (album that got me hooked) and one of other best shows I've been a part of (in GA) at my current residence in Greenville is just so special. Even better was that my wife was able to go even though our baby was almost due. Our daughter was born on April 25 about a week later.

    Then, to get lucky enough to get ten club tickets for Fenway 2 (first pick of course). Then, for one of my best buddies to be able to meet me there for the show(we experienced Borgata II together:)). Then, win tix for the HOB screening. Then, to win the lottery and get 10th row center. What???

    That first show, Ft Lauderdale, the ticket was given to me by this dude who passed up one of best buds to give me the ticket. I'm not sure why. He knew PJ was my favorite band I guess. I can talk all about all the things that happened at the show, in the pit, etc but what should be taken away from it was my biggest concern was that held these guys on such a pedestal I almost felt assured I would be kinda let down seeing them in person. I was actually afraid of it. I was barely 21 at the time but when they came out, Ed with his guitar, the fans blowing his shirt, and they started playing "sometimes" it was over for me. I have high expectations---after that night I held them higher than the pedestal I had them on before! I remember leaving that show with my ears ringing just like I did last Sunday nite.

    I've given away or bought tickets for friends, family and random people over the last 20 years. Last Sunday, gave two tix to some nice Boston girls we met right before the show. Greenville gave an awesome ten club tix to our doula's 16 year old son who love's PJ (had to get him out of being grounded first:)). Gave away two GA tix to a random couple in Memphis that were all the way in the back. It goes on and on for me all the way back and I did it because I wanted others to experience the energy and authenticity this band puts out. I also remember how lucky I was to get that first ticket 20 years ago. I just feel like this year was the sum of all that good karma shining back at me:)

    It was cool to see the first nite's show at the HOB. It was hot in there. There was a slight delay from audio to video that no one has mentioned that annoyed my buddy and I. The interview session after was kind of a sh*t show and my feet were tired. I too was hoping the band would play like a 5 song acoustic set. Nevertheless, it was cool to see the show in that setting with a bunch of fans and those guys/girls responsible for making happen are awesome!

    I'm not get into Sunday's show too much. So glad I picked Sunday nite vs Friday. There was an obvious crowd energy difference. I was one of the jumpers, lol. Like I said, it is hard to describe this show as it was just so different than the normal show. I feel like it was an in your face show---like in a good way. I'm not sure if that is right but that is how I feel about it. I was jumping around like a maniac so I could be wrong. That first set was just so intense---beginning to end. I haven't been to a not4u show for like 10 years. I would have taken comeback/parachutes over angel any day (even tho I have been singing angel every since Sunday nite---and it just brings me back to the old illegal bootleg I first heard it on). I just thought it sounds kinda off--maybe it was just me. This is just a minor thing and I do appreciate them playing it. Go into Love Reigh Over Me was just killer. I was like "Go", now? whoa. Then LROM was just spectacular. I was just in awe how Ed could sing that so powerfully after such a long set. Again, I'm not sure how to really describe this show but it was some different type of spectacular.

    Cons: I really didn't like having the second half of section A not being ten club members. I think it would have made a big difference if you guys/gals in the beginning of section B were with us in section A. Just saying. Also, the amount of jack offs from the back half of A that kept trying to sneak up the aisle was ridiculous. Security did a pretty good job until the last 1/3 of the show but it was annoying to me (i had an aisle seat). I don't remember fan club members doing this when it was seats only. It is what it is but I would have liked to have the other fan club member energy all in that first section...it also looks cooler to those ppl watching the show farther away.

    Thank you to the ten club, the band, and the fans. Very special nite but an even more special 25 years! My favorite band (really no close second), still together, refined and playing at the highest level (consistent 3+ hour shows, most diverse sets) some 25 years later...man, we got good taste in music!

    What a fucking year!

    PS- big thanks to my Wife for being just in love with this music and supportive of the travel times where she couldn't go...some of our best trips have been bc of this band!

    I sincerely thought it was because I was more inebriated the second night, but after seeing similar feelings across the board, it's clear this was a special night! Busing out of the gate with Off He Goes and NAIS was amazing, and where Night 1 had a weird ebb and flow to it, this one flowed as smooth as good wine. Amazing set, energized crowd (including younger generations thoroughly enjoying what they were witnessing), and band was on fire. Show #13, and I'd have to put it within the top three of shows I've seen them do.

  • These were shows 11 & 12 for me... it's hard to distinguish because I feel like they complimented each other so well as a single unit.

    I think their choice of covers for both nights deserves special recognition and I wrote about it here:

    Top 3 show along the likes of PJ20, Moline, and Milwaukee. Also one of the best crowds I've seen at a PJ show. Definitely a special show.

    I know the guys are used to it, but it must be so liberating as an artist to have 40,000 people absolutely screaming every lyric to every one of your songs for almost 3.5 hours.

    The best versions of Jeremy and Corduroy that I have ever seen. The crowd energy was unreal. Whoever says crowd doesn't make a difference in the show or how the band plays is crazy.

    I have the same "criticism" (let's use that term loosely, both shows were fantastic and this isn't negative) of the first Fenway show as I do for the May 17, 2010 TD Garden show in Boston. Looking at the setlist PJ hardcore fans get all geeked up that "We got Push Me Pull Me! Pilate! Undone! Bee Girl! Soldier of Love!" and check off all their checklists about the rare songs. It's not that the songs were played, but how they were in the setlist it just killed the flow of that entire show for me. I felt that show was kind of a mess. I don't think Fenway 1 was that way, but it had the same weird flow and when things started to get going, the momentum got killed.

    Can't believe it's been a week already. Haven't stopped thinking about it since it happened. Can't wait for the boot, or maybe we'll get really lucky and get a DVD release. It's taken everything in me to not just plan a trip to Chicago, but I can't afford it right now. Hope everyone going has a great time, though! Those shows are gonna be something special, too.

    I need more tour dates! TOTD will have to do, hahaha!

    Top 3 show along the likes of PJ20, Moline, and Milwaukee. Also one of the best crowds I've seen at a PJ show. Definitely a special show.

    I know the guys are used to it, but it must be so liberating as an artist to have 40,000 people absolutely screaming every lyric to every one of your songs for almost 3.5 hours.

    The best versions of Jeremy and Corduroy that I have ever seen. The crowd energy was unreal. Whoever says crowd doesn't make a difference in the show or how the band plays is crazy.

    Absolutely. What a year. I mean, we all knew this tour was going to be awesome but holy shit. This has to be their best tour. And there's still 2 more shows. Wow.

    Outstanding show! Best band on the planet in a legendary venue! Funny though how so many want to pit Sunday's show vs. Friday's. And/or compare this show to "epic" one's at MSG or Philly, whatever. This was my 11th PJ show since my maiden voyage at Alpine Valley in 2003 and they've all fucking kicked ass. This band of badass M.F.er's NEVER disappoint! Thanks be to PJ for an amazing library of music that I cherish. Thanks for a lifetime of memories at all the great shows with an awesome community of fans. Thanks for the reset. I'm now refreshed and ready get back at kicking ass in my small crazy world of balancing work and family. Can't wait for the next one!

    I have been a fan since the beginning, first show was April 6th 1994 in Springfield, MA. Been in the fan club for 21 years and have seen them close to 20 times. This past Sunday night show was unbelievable and the best yet, and it was my birthday, and we lucked out thru the 10C lottery and got front row, section A3 row 1. The 10C fans are the best! We had a blast! The group down there was unreal and the energy level could not have been higher! If anyone on here was down there in our area, let me know as I would love to reconnect with those guys and gals!

    Good call on the weather, over the last 7 days, we've had disgusting heat & humidity in the area, we lucked out something fierce with the two nights we had at Fenway.

    That is very true. Though, I will say that Friday was the nicer of the two night. I don't know if it was because we were out in the open on Friday, and under the roof on Sunday (also packed in tighter on Sunday - the dugout boxes are quite spacious compared to the grandstands), but I was definitely sweatier after Sunday's show.

    I sat dead center on the field both nights and I thought the weather was a little better Sunday. It wasn't as hot as Friday just had a better breeze. Oh hell, both nights were perfect. Especially for New England weather

  • My 19th show. Hadn't been to Boston as an adult. What a great city with great people. Every show is different and for me its pretty pointless to compare them. With that said, it ranks right up there as one the best I've seen. Counting the days to Wrigley.
