  • Ed's energy and spirit was great. The intro of In God's Country into I Am Mine was perfect for a night in the desert. Outstanding version of Immortality. Too many covers - including the last 5 songs of the evening but I still enjoyed every minute of it.

    I would like to humbly apologize to you for your experience. We are extremely grateful to all the fans we met at the show yesterday. Everyone was extremely kind to our son. Thank You also to Everyone for all the feedback as well. 


    I am very happy that your son is doing well -- this is a general commentary and in no way intended to be any personal attack on him or your parenting -- I meant no disrespect there.
    If you were in front of me I would have moved, I am sure.
    The love he receives is the love that is saved

    It is not a Pearl Jam Fan thing, it is a societal thing.  Go to the grocery store on a Sunday, when crowded.
    The average American should be punched square in the face.  No respect for others, only care for their own desires.
    Holding a kid on your shoulders or a sign up throughout the show is par for the course. 

    The vedder kid was advertising on Facebook and pj s twitter feed.  One or two songs, cool. A whole show?  Definitely not cool. 
    I don't even think it is OK for an entire song.  Pop up to have a view?  Sure.
    In General:
    To heck with you and the fact that you want your kid to see a concert or for the artist to see your kid/learn about your life.
    Is it a bummer that the child might be unable to see?  Yes.  Yes, it is. 
    A song is too long when you are directly impacting someone else's ability to experience the show.
    It is not about you -- it is about everyone there.  
    There are likely reasons that people choose to do these types of things -- and I get it, as a parent.  As a member of society I do not like it.

    Venues should have a speacial place for kids and their Guardians to veiw ,and for shorter people ,this is the venues fault and should be fixed and they should not of been blocking you ,why couldnt you get infront of them ?

    Family section is not a bad idea, but its not going to stop someone from blocking your view.  A short people section?  Come on now. This is about people being entitled without a care for others around them.

    The VIP viewing area was the rectangle area directly ahead in this pic.

    By the time Eddie came on the entire area was at like 110% capacity.

    There was no moving anywhere.

    Anyway, the family sent me a PM apologizing and it's pretty clear the learned the error of their ways.

    It was still a great 2 days at the festival, and my trip in general was amazing.

    It's all good.

    I had a blast last night.  Got there for The Record Company (was my third time seeing them...wish they could have played longer), and saw most of G. Love.  Came back for Band of Horses then EV.
    The setlist seemed like an odd mix, and it was a LOT of covers, but I think i'd rather hear a good cover over most of the uke songs at this point.
    I thought Ed sounded, vocally, as good as I've heard him in many, many years.  He sounded absolutely fantastic.  I also think the venue had good sound as well.  I moved around a few times and it all sounded great.  Ed seemed in a happy and a bit of a "don't give a fuck" kind of mood.  Loved his dialog.
    I think all in all Innings Fest was a huge success.  I live in Phoenix so I was extra excited to see it go off without a hitch.  I hope it continues.

    Ok, back to my first point...
    Ed sounded incredible last night, and I also remember saying this the last time I saw him solo.  I'm starting to really think this setting is becoming more suited to him.  Perhaps the 3+ hour show, 30+ show tours are a bit taxing on the pipes.
    If PJ has to slow it down more to get that sound out of EV, I'm more than ok with that.

    Fun show.  Great festival in general.  Incredibly well ran.

    Eddie or no Eddie, I think I'm making this an annual tradition.

    $430 for 2 day VIP, including all you can drink beers is maybe the best value I have ever gotten at a festival.  Throw in Spring Training baseball and perfect weather, and I am in for life.

    Not to be a dick here, but can people please chill the fuck out with bringing huge signs and holding them up the whole goddamn show.  It's incredibly unfair to all the people behind you.

    I'm sure you love your kid, and having Eddie acknowledge that his name is Vedder would be an amazing experience, but I had to spend the entire show staring at the back of your sign and it basically ruined the entire experience for me.

    Please and thanks...


    Were you nearby to ask them to put the sign down? Or ask an usher to go ask them to put the sign down?

    Same here. I love the smaller venues, and have no intention of going to any festival shows. I would love to see Eddie again in a small theater, like I did 7 years ago.

    I had one of the best times in Tempe for this event.  I took my Pops and I am just thankful folks weren’t complaining about “the 73yr old dude losing his mind over EV’s set” (and being a little overly chatty - but he was in awe which was epic in and of itself) ... because my Dad got his mind blown.  Huge music fanatic but his first ever experience at not only a music festival but seeing EdVedd perform.  We were in the VIP section and everyone on the staff there and through the festival grounds had all of the details down pat.  Well run and organized festival.  Legendary time - see y’all in Sept for Ohana!

  • Who was on stage at the end of Hard Sun?  Looked like Joe Maddon and former Cubs players. I saw Joe Maddon, Ryan Dempster, David Ross but not sure who the rest were from the video I watched. Thanks in advance.

    Damn, we had a great time in Tempe.  We had the VIP tickets and had no idea it was free beer, coffee and soda all weekend.  Hit it hard.  The festival was excellent, would absolutely do that one again, one of the most well run festivals I have been too.  As far EV goes, what a performance!   You could tell he was having a blast and making some of it up as he went.  My wife and I had never seen EV solo and she is sold on this format, don't know that I will get her to another PJ show!  Also, there were some in-different fans around us (along the rail on the VIP platform's first level) before the set started but by the time it was over they were blown away.  Fans all of them.  Great night, great weekend, so glad we made the trip.

    Other highlights:  Band of Horses was awesome.  Sheryl Crow and Blues Traveler played the hits and that was all we wanted.  G-Love still has it.   Dorothy rocks.  And of course, The Record Company.  Just might be the best newer band out there, third time I have seen them and full speed ahead every time.

    Nobody likes reserved seating more than I do.  I was at Innings which was neither reserved nor seated.  Despite that it was great to see Eddie live from probably a much closer spot than I would have got if it was reserved seating and definitely closer than if I stayed home.  I would do it again in a heartbeat.

    My one complaint is to the fans who were so territorial about “their” specific spot that they would not even move to let someone leave the area.  I can understand not wanting to move to enable someone to bud ahead of you (someone can start a post on whether saving a spot for someone who needed the facilities is acceptable behaviour) but come on if someone wants to leave nobody has the right to block them in.

    Sean Casey was also up there.

    Outside of Clemens it was basically all the former MLB players that were listed as making an appearance at the festival on the lineup poster.

    Damn, we had a great time in Tempe.  We had the VIP tickets and had no idea it was free beer, coffee and soda all weekend.  Hit it hard.  The festival was excellent, would absolutely do that one again, one of the most well run festivals I have been too.  As far EV goes, what a performance!   You could tell he was having a blast and making some of it up as he went.  My wife and I had never seen EV solo and she is sold on this format, don't know that I will get her to another PJ show!  Also, there were some in-different fans around us (along the rail on the VIP platform's first level) before the set started but by the time it was over they were blown away.  Fans all of them.  Great night, great weekend, so glad we made the trip.

    Other highlights:  Band of Horses was awesome.  Sheryl Crow and Blues Traveler played the hits and that was all we wanted.  G-Love still has it.   Dorothy rocks.  And of course, The Record Company.  Just might be the best newer band out there, third time I have seen them and full speed ahead every time.
    Yep, The Record Company is fn amazing!  First time I heard them was when their first album came out.  Randomly flipped on the Spectrum on Sirius/XM and "Off the Ground" was playing.  I was like "What the hell is this and who the hell is this?".  Been a huge fan since.  Innings Fest was my 3rd time seeing them.  
    They are getting more fans, but I don't understand how they aren't fn huge!  Maybe the bluesy rock doesn't do it for some, but I totally dig it!

    This was my first EV show.  I thought the show went great and Ed sounded fantastic.  Sometimes at PJ shows EV can be a little tough to understand depending on the venue but he was crystal clear at this one.  Being close was an awesome experience as I usually go for reserved seating at stadium/arena shows (I like my beer at concerts).  I think he threw in a few nice surprises on the limited set list he had to work with.  He only seemed to refer to PJ as "our group" and didn't use names or the band name that I can recall.  The dialogue was entertaining, Ed is pretty freaking funny actually.  

    On a personal level I was hoping for a few more Ed originals like Can't Keep or Sleeping By Myself but PJ seems to mix those in from time to time so still opportunities to catch those jams in the future.

    The only downside is they actually cut him off right at 11.  I expected at least a 2 or 3 song encore as most headliners are entitled too.  Ed at one point even said he hoped to go into "extra innings." I guess the festival had a hard stop time and I don't think its a reflection of anything but festival atmosphere.  Great show, and while I can't commit to Ohana this early in the year I would gladly see EV again and it would be awesome if he did something with reserved seating and not in a festival atmosphere.
  • Thank you to all involved in the festival...fantastic time with dear goddess friends in the vip...well worth the travel and wear and tear on my feet...clocked 20 kilometers the first day walking and dancing from stage to stage only 17 the second day bandaged, bruised but belly full of good cheer.  Such a blessing to see so many people in one place...all ages and stages of loving life present...Arizona is amazing the wow factor in people and landscapes was simply WOW...felt like i was centuries deep into the future with the free transit, scooters and many memorable moments with  native country folk...
    Tickle me Tempe
    The colours do bloom
    The only thing missing is Boom Boom Boom
    The keys to the Kingdom 
    Do reside within...
    Time and weather permitting
    Forgives all sin
    Bring it to the fore
    Ground moist at my feet
    Years flow to the river
    Hardly missed a beat...

    So sick of all the negativity. I've seen EV in small theaters and at festivals. Both are great experiences. I've seen PJ at arena's, outdoors and at large festivals. All great experiences. 

    If someone is obstructing your view at a festival, move. I was right next to the VIP area, make your way to the other side regardless of how packed it is. No one cares you traveled from across the country and he's your favorite artist. I'm sure the other dude is a pretty big fan if he names his kid Vedder. I myself would have been annoyed with the dude, but I wouldn't have sat around and complained about him and certainly would not have put him and his child on blast on a fanview on the forum. Go up to the dude at the festival and politely say something to him. 

    His money is green just like yours. Don't blame others for your experience. Figure it out yourself. 

    I was at Innings Festival on Sunday and had a blast. There were annoying people around me plenty of times, just like going out anywhere in public and I removed myself from the are they were inhabiting.

    Matt Kerney was the worst crap music I've ever heard, so I walked away and looked at other stuff. I have been VIP at festivals (Bonnaroo 15&16) and left the VIP viewing area because I could get a better experience somewhere else. I can tell you though that I never blamed someone else. If I did, I would have confronted them face to face in the moment, not from my computer screen half way across the country.

    My guess is blaming others is your style. The pic you show isn't even bad, you can see everything perfectly fine and there were huge monitors on either side of the stage.

    "Matt Kerney was the worst crap music I've ever heard"

    I personally don't know much about him, and I didn't know his music before, but I thought it was pretty good and he was entertaining. Weird to single out one artist over a weekend full of a ton of music that suit so many different styles that some will enjoy and others won't.

    Mat Kearney was great. Big fan. But to each his (or her own).
