    Eddie telling the crowd to "dance In the aisles" during Porch (my favorite song) I crowd surfed and got over the front gate and had to jump back.

    That ended up being the last song

    First show was a blast. Left work at noon for columbus 2k. 20 miles out of town we light our first j. Stop stoned for lunch and than hit godwill. Found a bulls 72-10 tshirt. Still have it. Showed up just before the gates opened . We had lawn tickets so we got our spot. Drank a couple of beers and smoked some more. Listened to the opener. Mid way thru the show i looked back and was amazed how far it went back. 2 hours after the show we finally get out. Drive a bit, than sleep on a rest stop n of columbus
    81 is now off the air

    March 1992. Eddie climbs to the second floor of First Avenue and drops himself onto the audience. I was the tallest audience member and gladly took the brunt of his weight as we began the body pass back to the stage.

    Running down the Benaroya aisle toward the stage during Yellow Ledbetter. Everybody was politely seated during the entire show and once Mike started playing we bolted toward the stage.

    Down in front rocking out to Alive in Winnipeg '05 and had a moment with Ed.

    Seeing my first Ed pre set at San Jose '95. It was the debut of 'Dead Man'. Also Ed climbing the scaffolding with a bottle of wine at the end of the show. Crowd went insane.

    '03 Santa Barbara - In My Tree & Hail, Hail with Jack Irons. TOTD reunion...

    Every second of '05 Gorge....
    I Saw Pearl Jam!
    49 shows and counting....

  • Standing for eight hours by myself in Hyde Park.

    Traveled into London from Wales and none of my friends would go with me.
    (utter shock and horror)

    First PJ concert, first festival, first time in Hyde Park.

    Amazing, amazing time.
    Well, fuckers, he still stands.
  • Vegas '03 - First ever front row experience capped off with Ed tossing me a tambourine during RITFW. I'll never forget that moment or the show. Incredible!

    Benaroya Hall '03 - An amazing show from beginning to end and an incredible two days getting to meet & hang with so many kick ass PJ fans!

    My moment lasted 3 1/2 hours..... Philly 4
    Unbelievable experience to see their faces, to feel apart of the magic, to have Eddie point at me and give me a pick :shock: .... my words can not do any of it justice.
    It's like the most beautiful dream now. :D

    "Judge yourself if you feel the need
    Just let me known to be
    In search of the truth myself
    There is a drop of blood on the ground
    And it seems to me that it's not my kind
    And I can't be sure if its yours or mine."

    Betterman, Mansfield 1, 2008. Amazing.

    Same here. With my wife, who said, "I'll only go with you if we get decent seats," so hitting the lottery front row made it even cooler. For someone with # 369xxx, I lied and said of course, I get GREAT seats. Glad I could deliver, babe. What a live experience moment. Thanks PJ & 10C.

    1) Spectrum shows including 4/28/03 - loudest crowd i've ever heard and of course 4 nights at the Spectrum with the greatest band in the world sending out one of the greatest concert venues in the world with such respect and love.

    2) Borgata I, so close and almost getting trampled as Long Road lead into Porch

    3) Holmdel 2003, traded MSG tickets up for this show and got 7th row dead center which is the closest i've been. such a small venue 7th row was so close. such a great show

    4) Vegas 2003 - had a great moment in Vegas 2003. Got into the venue and was kind of hammered for the show. 2 seats were on end the aisle on the floor pretty far back. go in after opening act and start chatting up security guard who seemed like a cool guy. security guard pretty much stood there motionless during show doing his job, until the end with Rocking in the Free Word. As lights come up and crowd is totally going nuts bouncing up and down i look over at security guard and he is bouncing up and down singing with the rest of us, i just looked over and nodded and he nodded back, he was so into it. it was just kind of cool to see someone who didn't seem that interested in the show just totally get into it like that. i guess he became a fan at that point.

    Travelling across the Sea to Dublin with my brother in 06 after many trials. Making it to the Point, standing at the back watching it all fill up..... opening chords to Inside Job... goosebumps.... and 'Just for today.... I am free'. A few tears were shed!!
