    Thank you Pearl Jam for this beautiful show! I took my son and we had a blast. On the floor section B with a great view of the band. Thrilled about the focus on women's rights since they are actively under assault by so many in our government. Leaving Here was a highlight for me. I am so grateful to be a fan of this band!
    It's nice to be nice to the nice.

    Had a great time.  19th show, and the 4th time I've had Wash as an opener.  Crazy.  Only "new" songs for me were the Gigaton songs, but enjoyed the entire show regardless.  Band sounds great, and I like that the songs are at a more normal pace now instead of trying to fly through as many as possible. We were right down front by Mike, and my daughter and I each got a pick.  Jeff threw one that went off her shoulder, but no luck finding afterwards in the scramble lol.  Show #20 up next in Vegas!

    It's hard to headline my reaction to this show with the tough scratches, but there is certainly a reason everyone else is doing that. In Hiding is easily one of their most underplayed tracks, and it especially hurts knowing at this point how much the band shares in our love for that one. Of course, I'd take an album debut over some bread and butter — especially when Ed's actual shoutouts, despite his mood when as things rambled on, actually did fit for the song and encore to still be played through as planned.

    Biggest highlights for me included Wash, I Got Shit, and Red Mosquito — Mike is just on another level right now, with both unmatched energy and exploration of new sounds. At the end of the day, this show made me grateful that this band is still exploring new things, whether it's songwriting, set construction, making up for lost time on dedications, etc. I wouldn't be surprised if we get to the end of this run and they're still debuting different openers, not to mention songs in the middle. My hope is that it carries into a return of RVM in place of Porch at some point, and removing any of the little monotony that remains.

    The second two-night stand of the tour awaits. Let's do this!
    As someone hoping to see them for the first time this tour hoping for RVM big time too! And Come Back…and lots LOL

    I hate the call and response stuff...at any concert
    Agreed. Never translates well
    I was trying to figure out what was meant by call and response and I finally figured it out. I agree, I don't like it either especially during Corduroy. Sorry, a bit off topic. Enjoying the fan views as usual.

    I had a great time!  FAR from the best PJ show I've been to, but still great nonetheless.  
    I do think there was a lot of excitement from the fans as it being many folks first show back from the pandemic.
    I was on Stone's side, four rows up and the sound was pretty "meh".  Mike's sound was def washed out where I was...but I guess that's to bee expected being so close on the side.

    Best corduroy of the tour and best of the crowds so far. My favorite show barely edging out LA2. Ed's chatter this time was probably more of a space filler except for his pre daughter speech on women's rights. 

    Leaving Here was a welcomed surprise as was eruption. Losing come back was a bummer but i get why we lost it. The sad songs have no place in these really short sets. Its just a vibe killer like Ed said during the show.

    They are finding the balance of gigaton songs now. with 22 to 25 song sets gigaton at 4 or 5 is appropriate. 

    GA people were fantastic about spacing. Showed up around 730 for the preset this time. Easily had good space 4 rows back on stone side. A couple of nerds come barreling past for picks like a 10 year old trying to see his first pair of boobs. So get your shit together pick nerds.  you are 40 try to remember not to be a loser. If you want one get up front early don't be that guy coming barreling from the back. Next time you will get your dick kicked in.

    Still personally want more 2000 to 2009 stuff but I guess that will be saved for a year there isn't an album to support or stadiums. 

    3 shows in.. encores are really predictable. Goinng to see more and more crowds start to leave mid encore. It was noticeable in Phoenix despite a really great crowd. Being outside of So Cal was nice.

    I was glad they played it…while not as tight as everything else in the set, I thought it was great.  Could be a great opener!

    Royal Blood does the "this side cheer" and "now this side cheer" contest and god do I also hate it. RB is also one of the cheesier/cliché-ier between-song banter bands I've seen though. Good music, awful stage presence. The Even Bros eat it up though. 
    I'm through with screaming...

    Darwinspeed, folks...I'm out

    I can attest to that.  As we were in line for Randy's donuts on our way back to San Diego (after deciding against spending Sunday at Knott's Berry Farm, or hitting a museum), I mentioned to the wife and kids, maybe we can go to the Royal Blood show after all.  Luckily tix were available for under $50 total, and we bought four.  It was a great show by Royal Blood, especially in the cozy Observatory venue.  Then two days later I ended my '5 shows in 8 nights' run (SD, LAx2, RB) by going to The Cult make-up show at Humphries (of course had to get a couple Mai Tai's at Bali Hai beforehand).  Yesterday was a major recovery day.  Now I'm wishing I could go to Vegas on the 20th.  :)

    DAMN...I missed the Cult show...forgot....I love RB and thought the Observatory was sold out? Glad you got to go to both. 
    I was just contemplating Vegas vs Sac and based on what I could get on flight points through UA and SWA..and hotel...SAC won out.

    Row D, seats 1 and 2.
    I mean, I could have gotten it from the pre-party/bar or the thousands of other people I crossed that day.  Who knows?
    Either way, other than a minor cough that lasted one day (yesterday), i'm pretty much 100% back to normal.  My girlfriend is a little congested and fatigued, but otherwise not bad.

    In the very back there was hardly anyone around us. I’m guessing it was from the flight.
