Show Two

Walk On Music: 8:00. Il Buono, Il Cattivo, Il Brutto (The Good, The Bad And The Ugly)-Ennio Morricone)
Band On Stage: 08:01
Band Off Stage: 11:03

01. Oceans
02. Footsteps
(How is everybody doing up there? We’ve got friends in high places (referring to the upper decks) and then the cheapskates on the rooftops. He tells a story about the first time he ever saw a bong. A couple of unemployed guys hanging out on a roof watching the Cubs wearing jean cut offs with the pockets and possibly more hanging out.)
The next song is for Pat who lost his brother Joey a couple of years ago. “We all know what that feels like. This is for Joey and Pat (approximate)

03. Off He Goes
04. Better Man
(Ed sings the words, “Summer whoa oh oh, Summertime oh”)

05. Corduroy
06. State Of Love And Trust
07. Why Go
08. Animal
(How’s it feeling? Some toasts we make lightly. Like I could toast the guy in the horse head mask. That’s worth a toast. He reminisces about when they were asked to come back and play Wrigley he said he wanted to sleep on it. He had a dream about the Chicago Tribune landing on his doorstop with the headline “Lightning Strikes Twice For Pearl Jam”. He talks about looking at the weather weeks ago and seeing storm weather but the two show days have been beautiful. He dedicates the next song to Joe Madden and his team of heroes.)

09. Given To Fly
10. Immortality (short intro)
(The mighty Matt Cameron right there…Ed points out the brave soul out wearing a White Sox jersey. When the crowd boos Ed says no we are all friends here. I have good friends on the Sox. I root for them when they aren’t playing the Cubs. But this one goes back to the Bulls. It is Black, Red and Yellow.)

11. Black, Red And Yellow (Dennis Rodman comes out and does the spoken word phone call section. Ed-Thank you ninety one!)

12. Deep
13. Jeremy (Ed goes to the barricade to sing the end of the song)
(Ed asks for the lights to come up so he can point out a kid who was singing his brains out and gave Ed his wrist band..”There he is..can you see him?” Ed reads off some of the local charities that are benefiting from ticket purchases for the show. One is the Intonation music program. http://www.intonationmusic.org/overview/ He also talks about the Teenage Cancer Trust that he, Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey work with. Ed also wants to bring attention to Eddie Bocanegra who runs a program called Urban Warriors. While he is discussing it he asks some in the audience to put the beach ball down while he is talking about this. He goes on to mention Abner Garcia who worked with Urban Warriors and was recently killed in a random shooting.
“for all of us that are safe we need to remember that Silence Is Violence. Help is coming but at least appreciate that you are safe…”)

14. I Am Mine
15. Wishlist
16. Of The Earth
17. Lukin (Ed shouts “stop stop stop stop” to interrupt the song and tells a guy to get his “finger out of that women’s face.” The people around the man all point at him as the trouble maker. “Every finger is pointing at you man.” Ed has the guy ejected and the audience sings the “Nananana Hey Hey (Kiss Him Goodbye) a song often sung at sporting events. Ed compliments the woman’s male companion for looking out for her and notes she was doing a pretty good job of taking care of herself. He then checks to make sure the woman is okay and the band picks up Lukin where the left off.)

18. Mind Your Manners
19. Rearviewmirror (shortish version)

Encore Break One

(Ed checks on the audience and makes sure they are okay. He says we had a little incident and just wants to check. He says the guy that got tossed reminded him a little of Steve Bartman. He then says, no that guys was worse. I send my love to Steve Bartman. He comments on the flags from all over the world. This one is for the Australians.)

20. Throw Your Arms Around Me-(Archer, Falconer, Howard, Miles, Seymour, Smith, Waters)

(He got a note from Heath and Renada (sp) They are about to get married but one of them just lost their father. They made it to the show and wanted to hear the next song. Ed also notes that it is Layne Staley’s birthday. He would have been 49. “Happy Birthday Layne..”)
21. Man Of The Hour (full band Ed on electric guitar)
22. Last Kiss-(Cochran) (Ed walks along the wings of the stage and gets a beer from an audience member. He chugs the beer while the audience sings the chorus.)
23. Got Some
24. Comatose
25. Even Flow (Mike goes down to the barricade for part of the solo. Ed goes to the barricade and hands the mic to audience members to sing the part after the solo. Ed introduces Mike McCready and Bob, the guy singing in the audience. Stone compliments Bob saying that “of all the people in the audience that sing that song, that was probably the best. Stone also wants to make sure Ed gets a shout out since he never gets introduced. The audience cheers. Stone says Ed has turned the mic over to him. Ed thanks him for singing. “I’ve been trying for a long time.” While they strum a few chords Stone realizes his guitar is in the wrong tuning. He gets a different one and jokes, “I am glad we didn’t start playing because something might have been out of tune.”)
26. Don’t Gimme No Lip
27. Sonic Reducer-(Bators, Blitz, Chrome, Magnum, Thomas, Zero)
28. Blood

Encore Break Two

(Ed wants to send his love to a young girl named Britt that has MS. There is another woman named Megan that was diagnosed with a brain tumor which I know a lot about. She was diagnosed two years ago and had her last round of Chemo today! And it isn’t all bad news, Heidi has beaten breast cancer and she wanted to hear this song.)

29. Crazy Mary-(Williams)
30. Surrender-(Nielsen)
31. Alive
(Ed thanks the audience by referring to them by the bases. He talks about his good friend Ernie Banks. He tells a story about Ernie Banks asking if Ernie could have his childhood mitt. Ed was reticent at first but when Ernie asks..The mitt was recently sent back to him and he is pretty excited and sad about that. He thanks the local and touring crew and some specific people for helping this happen.)

32. All The Way (during the song the video screen shows various Cubs playing, shots of the stadium and streets around it and some Cubs jerseys. Lots of footage. There is a shot of jersey that looks like the Cubs but says Clash.)
33. Time Has Come Today-(The Chambers Brothers) played a verse and chorus then goes into
34. Rockin' In The Free World-(Young) with Ray Cameron and Tim DiJulio (Mike hands Tim his guitar and then goes onto Matt’s riser and plays some toms and sticks)
35. Yellow Ledbetter
36. I’ve Got A Feeling-(Lennon, McCartney)

    Loved meeting so many awesome people while waiting all day in line for GA. Here's hoping Mike from WVA was reunited with his wife after the show. The PJ community is really something special. Oh, and the show was pretty good as well.

    Deep, Of The Earth, and All The Way.... Wow!
  • Stone sang!! Been waiting on that one.
    I'm through with screaming
  • 1st encore was their best ever. I think comatose sonic reducer and blood in relatively quick succession may have shot their load. Uti was totally worth it. What a show. So good.

  • fgdanzifgdanzi Posts: 123
    Holy crap, what an amazing two nights at Wrigley! Glad I was able to be there for both nights. Incredible way to end the summer. Of the Earth was the stand out for me! And Boom killed it during Crazy Mary!!!
  • bbisonbbison Posts: 196
    Loved this show to death, killer setlist, been missing Of The Earth by one show forever. Thought this show had great pace and energy...but no singular moment that matched Masters of War from Saturday.

    I will say this: the Monday night asshole contingent in GA >>> the Saturday night crowd. We always worry about the one jerk that spoils it, but were stuck with a dozen well off to Stone's side tonight. Quite a few of us went to the same area tonight, hoping to avoid the sometimes mayhem in the center. Not tonight.
    Is this where the show list goes?

    11-26-91 / 8-2-92 / 3-15-94 / 7-9-95 / 7-11-95 / 8-29-98 / 9-1-00 / 10-25-03 
    10-23-04 / 10-22-06 / 10-9-09 / 10-23-10 / 10-3-12 / 7-9-13 / 10-21-13
    11-24-13 / 11-26-13 / 10-17-14 / 10-20-14 / 10-25-14 / 4-8-16 / 4-9-16
