    That's fucking awesome, I am so glad they played Black for Spragg101 & his friend Zandy.
  • I'm so glad you got your wish.. it really warms my heart. I hope you had one hell of a time at the show, especially during Black.

    I often read these threads and think of the pain and loss people are having/had but still wonder if it reaches the band. .. when they really have many fans with so many wishes. But these threads really do work and the band really does care. Amazing stuff. Another brilliant example. Well done pj and awesome for spragg and zandy.

    13. Black (as song starts Ed says, “this is for your friend, the one who was here last time but couldn’t be here this time.” This likely refers to a request in the band forums. Ed’s improv in the “we belong together section” mentions being together 4 years ago and still belonging together)

  • Just read this thread. That is bittersweet. Awesome they played it, and it sounds like from the intro and the little improv tag it was played specially for you. Can't imagine the feelings you must have felt. The comments here, the bands response, just all the support is pretty f'n awesome. Lots of good vibes. I've got a dl code I'll send you for the boot when it's released. Just send me a pm.

    Just would like to double this statement... when I read through the setlist and saw they played it, it touched me deeply...
    wow, and I am truly happy for Spragg... such a gesture or moment really helps to get over a big loss!
    applause to Pearl Jam, the best band ever...
    there is no way to peace, peace is the way!
    ...the world is come undone, I like to change it everyday but change don't come at once, it's a wave, building before it breaks.

    I am so sorry for your loss. :(

    I just saw Black from that show on youtube. The ending was so intense, especially knowing the story behind it. It was very, very emotional. I am so glad they fulfilled your wish! :)

    To everyone who has messaged or posted over the past few days I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart. I am truly astounded and touched by the level or support in this forum. Last night was unforgettable and truly moving. I still cannot believe that actually happened. A New Zealand newspaper has been in contact and is doing a story on this and it will be posted in the next few hours. I will post it on here when it is up. Thank you again and thank you to the one and only pearl jam :)

    And that my friends is why Pearl Jam are much much more than just another band. Love them!!

    I honestly did not think I could love or appreciate pearl jam any more than I already did. But the fact that this has happened makes me so happy and proud that I have spent the last 20 years with pearl jam in my life.
