    What an incredible epic show. 3.5 hours, 36 songs. I saw tcuhem for the first time in 1992 and this show is top 3 for me. Oceans, Brain of j, immortality, missing, thin air, all or none, stbc, kick out the Jams, sonic reducer, it’s ok tag, won’t back down , leash, in hiding, and maybe the best BAba of all time? Crowd went absolutely nuts. The Cornell song was next level. Kim wearing the Cornell shirt. How does this band play like that after all these years? Was this the longest pj show ever? Best show of the tour hands down. No way does Montana, chi or  bos get anything close. A night like that doesn’t happen very often. Thank pj, with getting older and life becoming too real sometimes thanks for something to look forward to and a night to let loose and listen to the greatest band that ever stepped on a stage. 
    I had a good time last night at Fenway 1, and there was a lot I LOVED about the setlist and the band's performance. But I also had a secret smile and fire still burning because Seattle 2 is still my true true love.

    I remember that feeling.   A few songs in (maybe during Brain of J) where I realize they were giving us one of those top tier PJ shows.   Big smile on my face.   You could just tell they were bringing it that night.   Amazing show.  Glad I went :)

    Yes, this, it's now official! Fenwsy 2 was wonderful, very grateful to have been there for sure!  But Seattle 2 was a game-changer.

    I was there so I'm biased.  I always feel the only real way you can compare shows is if the exact same person, had the exact same seats, and went to all the shows.  Still Seattle 2 had my favourite setlist of all the 2018 shows, and it was damn long :)    Really nice to see Seattle in the conversation about being the top show of a tour.

    What's crazy is the fact that it was almost a month ago when this awesome event took place.

    Our time is flying by. Can't waste any days!

    I'm still feeling great about the shows (in particular this one!).

    I'm still buzzing over Night 2 -- Night 1 was great too, but N2, wow.  I'm going to jump out on a limb and say it's easily in the top 5 of any concert I've been to. 

    To echo other comments, I really hope they release a video and vinyl of the show.

    We went to seven shows this summer, Seattle 2 was head and shoulders above the rest, probably the best PJ show we've seen (out of 21).

     That's so cool to hear! Out of curiosity, how many of the 7 you saw were US shows?  I've never seen PJ outside of the US other than Montreal, and I always wonder, is comparing US shows to Europe or S/C America apples to apples?  Or apples to oranges?

    I went to 8 shows this year.  Seattle 2 was by far the best.  Hands down.  Honorable mention to Chicago 2.
  • mrussel1mrussel1 Posts: 10,057
    I've been to over 50 PJ shows beginning at Lolla 92, seen Floyd (albeit in the 80's), Stones, Who, Metallica as early as 86, Nirvana, TOTD, hundreds of concerts... when I got back to the hotel that night I told my wife that was the most amazing musical experience of my life.  Feel very fortunate to have shared with my 16 year old son, in the pit about 7th row.

    I was at Prague, Krakow, Berlin, Seattle 1&2, Boston 1&2.

    I'm no expert, I'd guess that comparing arena shows (Prague, Krakow) to ballpark shows is hard to do. Krakow was an awesome show with an amazing setlist. Seattle 2 had setlist, energy (band and crowd) and length. We were totally exhausted after Seattle 2, but I was so amped up (even after the walk back to the hotel) that I couldn't sleep. I'm pretty sure I said this way back at the beginning of this thread, but, overused as "epic" might be, it absolutely applies to Seattle 2.

    I'd say that overall reaction speaks for itself!  Doesn't matter what is compared to what; if it feels like you got transported to another realm, then that's what that show was, and it rocked!

    You're lucky to have that much amazing concert experience in your memory box!  And we're all lucky that we were at THAT show that blew so many others completely away!

    Saw both Seattles, Missoula and Boston 2 on this one. I was pretty much speechless after Seattle 2. Just wow is how I felt. I honestly have never felt that way after any show, Pearl Jam or otherwise. I'm not sure where to exactly put my finger on it but I agree with the all you said -- set, energy, length, all of it. It was amazing and I still felt that way. I really, really liked Boston 2 and I got a few songs I've been seriously waiting for in Red Mosquito, Smile and Thumbing My Way and I still don't think it came close to Seattle 2.

    I went to the same shows as you except switch out Seattle 1 for Wrigley 2 for me. Seattle 2 is definitely in my top 3 of the year but I have it behind Krakow and Berlin. Not knocking Seattle 2 as it was a phenomenal show but the other 2 were just a bit better imo.

  • Rats ->In Hiding->Whipping  was my 3 song highlight that night and I'm still thinking about it.   A funky beat, to singing at the top of your lungs, to just completely rockin out.

    @AaronKamp ; That's pretty awesome considering the number of shows you've seen in the '90s!

    Just finished listening to the bootleg adn WOW, so glad and lucky that i was there. Going through somesad/ difficult times now and reliving this experience helped me today. Thin Air/All or None back to back, OMG. Rats/Leash/Whipping/Brain of J/Spin The Black Circle all in one show!!!! Met the nicest people at the merchline, and GA, wish I asked their names/Facebook etc. To me, out of the shows I atended is a tie between Seattle 2 and Santiago 1. Can't wait for the next tour and hpe to meet some of you and who knows, host some of you for the next Santiago show.

    Was amazing.

    Crazy Mary, Jeremy, and Leash strung together at the start of the second encore was the second stanza I really dug.

    Gawd that show was great.

    Yup.

    And a song I go to every now and then when the mood hits me is Can't Deny Me. I remember the song at the show and I was impressed- it was loud and proud. Listening to it on the bootleg brings me back to that feeling I felt about it in the moment- the guitar sounds great.

    I mean... this tune should have been one of the weaker moments of the night and it was not weak by any stretch.

    Great show.
