Sharing how cool and easy it used to be.

We will get our album soon, and we will get our tour. The whole thing is a kick ass adventure that we are a part of. Together we will help each other get tix, or something cool will happen and you will be at the show.  Honestly, if you are a decent person PJ stuff seems to work out quite nicely. Thank you for your time. densan

    Best tour and album ever. Got free tix to the Hawaii show (didn’t make it) but saw them at the Tibetan freedom show, la x2, Camden x2, east Rutherford and msg x2. 
    I'll ride the wave where it takes me......

    Saw them for first time in Auckland. Very cool show. Was really surprised when they opened with Sometimes... didn't realize at the time the slow intro was their MO.

    A great era to see a concert 
     There to watch the gig.  Rather then getting the perfect selfie for social media 

    i wish i wish i wish i wish, i guess it never stops

    I remember seeing pearl jam in Dublin 1996
     Stood there in awe as a 16 year old. Amazed at what I was watching . I feel some similar aged people are missing out by this obsession with  social media at a concert.

    THIS!!!!

    Remember going to a show to go to a show with friends and hang out and talk between bands?

    Nothing blows my mind more than seeing a bunch of people on their phones checking Facebook / IG / Snap while the band they came to see is playing.

    i can remember the days when you bought the record played it to death with your friends then went to the show bought a t shirt had a great time & then had to go through post PJ detox then listened to your dodgy sounding bootlegs to get that fix again. How social media & the narcissism that is goes with it is ruining the love we have for this band

    Awesome post and great comments above. This really had to have been the “golden era” as Yield is my favourite album. In addition to these comments another head scratcher for me was reluctantly dashing up to use the washroom late first set August 10 at Safeco and seeing the huge merchandise lineups and people who looked like they were just fine with missing a large piece of show to get merch.Even for someone who did not attend their first show until 2006 these lineups during the show are a huge change since my first show.

    People are going to continue to do it. They paid their money they will say . Eddie said it on jools Holland.  'Youth is wasted on the young'. They are missing out on so much i feel

    Best album ever and best tour ever. Met one of my best friends for life on that West coast tour. I had an extra pair of tickets to the LA Forum show and ended up selling it online (face value) to a guy coming from Jersey. We didn't have time to mail money and tickets back and forth so agreed to meet up at the San Diego show which was first (SD, Vegas then LA). We hooked up and hung out together in SD and then carpooled back to Vegas where I live and he and his brother stayed at my house for the couple of days and then we carpooled to LA and hung out together. Over the years we have stayed close talking on the phone and going to more shows together etc.

    My first pj show was on this tour in Barrie Ontario. Still have the newspaper article laminated and on my wall and was lucky enough to geb the 2xl poster from it last month. Amazing times!! Definitely my fave pj concert of all time.

    First Pearl Jam show was Chicago 1998.  Never would have expected at that time I would see them so many more times all over the world.  Would be funny to go back in time and talk to my 17 year old self about Pearl Jam.

    saw 2 nights of this tour in magical maui and 1 in montreal. very surreal . very small out door venue not sold out. painted lines on the grass to define sections. if you stepped in the middle got a flashlight shone on you. great weather. should post a picture of a very very rare promoters concert poster from this show. there might be less than half a dozen in existence.  saw phil lesh on the beach and met michael stipe in fan fran on the way there. quite the trip.

    My favorite tour as well. Alpine 1 and 2, Chicago, St. Louis, Kansas City, and Indianapolis. So many memories and a great summer before moving to a new city and what I felt was the beginning of my journey with this band even if I saw them twice (95,96) before. 
    Do you know what it's like to fall in the mud and get kicked... in the head... with an iron boot? Of course you don't, no one does. It never happens. Sorry, Ted, that's a dumb question... skip that.

  • Those 98 shows really were something special.  If they released soundboards of the whole '98 tour I'd buy them all in a heartbeat.
    "What can you expect when you're on top? You know? It's like Napoleon. When he was the king, you know, people were just constantly trying to conquer him, you know, in the Roman Empire. So, it's history repeating itself all over again."

    My first show was this tour. Saw them in Albuquerque NM. Totally blown away that anybody could actually sound like that live. Fucking awestruck still from it!

  • Vancouver ‘98 was my first PJ show. Still remember lining up for tickets at our local Ticketmaster outlet on the way to my high school track team’s final meet. I was so nervous that I wouldn’t get tickets (which happens every time, doesn’t it?). Total happenstance that that concert and my wedding day 5 years later fell on the same day - July 19. :)
  •  saw them in Sacramento, if i remember correctly, '98- Ed was all in awe and respect that X was opening. All was rockin' out- I thought the place was Full. Then after some stuff flying around, someone threw a boot on stage-and ofcourse, Ed wasn't having that. I don't think Pearl Jam has played Sacramento, Ca. @the (former Arco) Arena, since then...I'm thankful they played other places in "N.Cal" including the Bridge School Benefits in Mt. View, Ca.

     yep-love what you said in the first sentence-especially play it to death, then the getting to go to the show(s) - and the post come-down after- long lasting anticipation, fun-and gladHappiness,+...love Pearl Jam Live.

    I loved the Yield tour.  I'd seen them once before at a powerful but short (and in the afternoon) Lollapalooza set.   I didn't even own Ten at that point, so my fandom grew moreso after that than before it.   The Yield tour was my first time seeing my favourite band.  I was lucky enough to see 3 shows.    I was doing a cross Canada trip with one of my best friends.   I wasn't sure if we were going to make it back in time for the Vancouver show.   We cheated and drove south once we hit Calgary and caught the Missoula show.   It was amazing.   I was hooked.   We made it back to Vancouver just in time for the Vancouver show a month later.   Then I got home, and after a dayor two, I asked my little brother if he wanted to go to Seattle to see PJ.   He said sure.... we drive to Victoria got tickets (of which Seattle II was not sold out).  Caught a ferry and got in front of the stage with 5 minutes to spare :)

    One of my most favourite summers ever.    Spent the summer road tripping, going to PJ shows, and a few weeks drinking and tubing on the river.    Only summer I never worked between age 16 and now :)

    edit:  BTW the 10c ticket thing back then wasn't all rosie.  You had to mail in your orders and it was first come first serve.  They did make comments to choose a backup choice in case your first was sold out.   You didn't find out of if you got tickets until after the public onsale.   We panicked for missoula and got a 2nd pair of GA tickets.   Totally stupid in hindsight because it was a show in a small market.   We tried to get friends to drive out for the show, but they no showed :(

    Ha mine got destroyed along with the white South Pacific t. But to my delight and surprise both were on display at the PJ exhibit at MOPOP (along with other tour t's I bought over the years). I remember the PJ logo being on the right breast not the left one haha.

    i still have the white South Pacific one too also got my 2 t-shirts from the Vitalogy tour.
    My white t-shirts are not so white and the Vitalogy one looks like it’s on it’s last legs but the Yield one is not so bad

    You guys evoked some memories. Some that stand out are swimming with a school a sea turtles in Maui while humming given to fly, heading over to Maui Tacos right before the first show, and running into Mike with his Tech. I told him to please go ahead of me, and he wouldn't. The end of the second show my wife and I sat at the top of some bleachers they set up. One of the last songs was "Around the Bend" and a shooting star fell behind the guys as they played. Still get the shivers thinking about that moment in time.
