I hardly ever post here but last nights show was incredible and so was the set list. We were in seats and dancing throughout the entire set. Feeling absolutely exhausted today so it makes me wonder how they have the energy to do this every other night. So grateful that they still tour and give it their all for each show. I fucking love this band. Can’t wait for Toronto!Side note - would love to hear Arc open the Toronto show.
amazing setlst..still ottawa is my favorite type of setlist...when binaural is on the mix im biasedas i said before frankfurt and amsterdam show for different reasons ..there is a way with 22-23 songs to blow peoples mind...go out and do acoustic songs,,(so will be different songs every time with that option and we dont miss the old setlist with the encore 1)throw in the mix one two rare songs..frankfurt got fatal,canada got otherside .man of the hour,..then ,inside job either opener or first song in encore like last night..NAIS as opeener likeAmsterdamlast night,no covers,add sad which is amazing b side song ,another mix of things..and all will be happy..cos u dont know what u getting..thats the deall.no 30-32 song,but 22-24?..thats fine when u still find ways to mix it and blow people mind,,there is a way alwaysthats why u are the best live band of all times,,pearl jam u are unique..keep it that way..we love u anyway

Man home now and still thinking about the show. This was my 5th pj show and it might be recency bias but I think it was the best one yet. It was an amazing setlist with some deep cuts I never heard live before (yellow moon) and lots of gigaton which is what I wanted. Hell, even the encore had some surprises! Above all I thought Ed sounded excellent. His voice during Nothingman was incredible. The whole band seemed on fire. I was a little worried with some of the complaints and negatively over the past few months about the setlists and such, but man, the show didn’t seem incomplete. I believe it was around 25 songs? Like what do you want? I saw Quebec 2016, and while absolutely amazing, there was one point during that show when I was thinking that this show is lonnnng. The 25 songs sets, 2.25 or 2.5 hours is the sweet spot IMO. Also, to note, when you’re there live the last thing you think about (at least for me) is the tuned down songs. I certainly didn’t notice it at all. Whoever said was probably the highlight for me, along with the rest of the gigaton songs, yellow moon, man of the hour, inside job, cordory, I am mine, Alice and indifference! Even after all of these years those big hits still sound amazing and get the crowd rocking! Thanks Pearl Jam, hopefully we can do it again in a few years! Cheers!
This show was an instant classic.
