    Many times I leave a show and want more. Not because it wasn't good, it's always fantastic when it's Pearl Jam, but because I just cannot get enough of this band. Ever.

    I will say, I felt very content after this show. I was exhausted from the energy (both what I put out and what I received from the performance, and the crowd).

    I have always wondered what the early shows were like.

    I was 12 when I bought TEN. It was the very first album I owned. I've always wondered what I missed out on before I could attend the shows I wanted to see.

    Somehow, this show makes me wonder no more. I cannot explain, it's not the same thing as the early years, but somehow this fulfilled that long lost quest for me. How magical is that? How on earth is it even possible? After all these years, I finally feel like I was there at the beginning. I finally feel like I found the part that was missed.

    This show made me feel complete. Each song, bit by bit, from Once to Release, I relived the very first time I heard those songs, so many years ago. It was brand new and well worn at the same time. I cannot describe the feeling.

    Thank you Pearl Jam for bringing me back in time Friday night... Bringing me back to my youth, and bringing me to a place I couldn't possibly have visited all those years ago, but now, I have.

    Delight, Delight... Delight in our youth....

    I think you aptly described the feeling!

    Easily in my top 3 shows. This was amazing. The whole crowd lost their minds when Alive started...we all knew what was happening. Unreal. No other band in the world is this good.

    Does anyone have any video of Daughter/Its okay/WMA or RVM from the 4/29 show?

    I was on the rail in on Stone's side. I got very dizzy and was extremely overcome with emotion when they played Daughter. Daughter is the song that first brought me to Pearl Jam. I know for many of you its not your favorite song, but the lyrics knocked me down the very first time I heard it back in the '90s. Hearing it that night after hearing all of Ten was amazing. I fainted at one point during Daughter. My husband was holding me up and worried, he didn't know what was happening to me and I wasn't really sure at the time either. I managed to pull myself together and someone gave me some water. It seemed like an eternity during that song, I kept saying I need some water and the security guy was taking forever to get me some water. Finally they gave me some water. I felt better, but I was still very dizzy. My husband kept saying he wanted me to go sit down and we should leave. I begged him to let us stay. I was trying so hard to pull myself together. I didn't want to leave and I didn't want my husband to have to miss the show either. And once you leave the rail, you can't really come back.

    Then they played RVM and I just don't remember a thing except the music rushing through me. RVM is one of my favorites songs. As a daily runner, I find myself listening to that song at least once during my 5 mile run each day. It just picks me up, helps me run faster and stronger.

    Well my night ended abruptly, I fainted a second time at the end of RVM and security had to lift me out of the pit and take me up to first aid room to finish listening to the show.

    I felt better by the end of the night, but the combination of no liquids after 1/2pm (stupid decision on my part) and jumping and dancing around took its toll on me and I was suffering from severe dehydration. I should note, I don't drink alcohol or do drugs, so my fainting was not from anything like that. I felt bad if I annoyed anyone around me, as I didn't want to ruin anyone's Pearl Jam concert experience. Despite the fact I missed the last encore, It was still the best show I've ever experienced.

    If anyone has any video of Daughter and RVM from that night, I'd be so grateful if you could post them as I was in a complete fog during those songs and don't remember.

    Thanks-

    Pure, raw, energy during the intro! The spotlights moving up to the "PJ10" banner in the rafters...chills. And how much do I love that my youngest kiddo screams his head off at 0:53? Pearl Jam kids rule! Philly 2 wins!

    My dream was to hear a full album at some point in my life. I've seen other bands do it (advertised, of course), but never expect PJ to pull it out like this. Only been a few days since the show, so don't want to over-hype this, but easily one of the best I've done. Release was incredible. Best version I've heard.

    Hopefully a new album coming up, which means a show sooner than later...

    I'm still so absolutely blown away; the post PJ concert blues are worse then ever because of what they did this night. The magic that went down is still only slowly sinking in.

    Philly 2 was only my second up-close show. Philly 1 was my 1st. I got desperate and paid a scalper a bit more than face for night one, but Wells Fargo hooked me up with tix 7 rows from McCready for night 2 for face value. They called me right as I was starting to believe I'm not gonna make it to night 2. It was trully a buzzer-beater blessing as that night ended up being one to be etched in rock and roll history. Although, for me, it was way more than that.

    By the third song, I was slowly realizing what's going on and I was literally shaking trying to think how I'm going to keep my composure when they play Release because at this point I am sure they are playing Ten. April 29, 2016 was my father's 1st death anniversary. We lost him to Cancer. I'm in the military and I made it to him just in time for his last breaths and just enough time for me to tell him that I love him. I just know he heard me. To this day, that image is stil burnt in my head.

    I tried multiple paths to reach the band/crew to request Release. I wasn't even expecting a response, but I did. Multiple. Which made me feel even better about being a PJ fan. I was just hoping that they play it and didn't need Eddie to dedicate it to my situation and whatnot.

    Evidently, the song wasn't dedicated to my situation but I took it as such. When he started talking about it and said "this song is about losing a pops..." I immediately started getting choked up. There was nothing that could've prepared me for that moment. On the first note I just started crying like a baby. I hid my face inside my shirt but the more I tried to stop, the more it came out. My girl was trying her best to comfort me but there was just no stopping it at this point. It was a mix of sadness that comes with the thoughts of not having my father for a year now and happiness because I am seeing my favorite band who just happened to play an amazing and very fitting song on his death anniversary. I can't think of a better way to honor my father on that day. Only enjoying the show with him couldve made that moment better. I know he was there with me.

    Thank you, and I will definitely be better hydrated for next show! I never want to embarrass myself like that again.

    It was a week ago tonight! One of the best shows I've ever attended, despite my fainting (twice).

    I'm also very grateful to security and the folks in first aid who helped me that night!!

    One of the best shows I've ever seen. First time doing PJ tour (hit FLL, Miami, Greenville, Columbia, Phillyx2) and was blown away by the power and emotion of Ten in its entirety. I think it was my 12th birthday the first time I saw the Jeremy video, and while I enjoyed the music, I could never really relate to the content/emotion present on the album.

    Fast forward 24 years and while I still haven't experienced all those things, I can understand and relate. Hadn't heard Garden or Release live at that point and both delivered. I thought the remainder of the show was just so so, the 2nd encore was fantastic, but it wasn't about the setlist for me.

    It was about the communal experience of seeing the album played for you in that setting and being able to experience the power of each and every one of those songs with 20,000 others in a new way.

    I thought the same about the Greenville show, and while I consider Vs. a stronger album and the Greenville setlist a stronger setlist, the experience of Ten is something I just can't get out of my head.

    I haven't seen a lot of Pearl Jam shows. Prior to this spring I'd only been to VA Beach 2000 and Music Midtown 2012, but as a lifelong Phish fan, I understand he critical side of a dedicated fanbase. And can understand shows speaking to some folks and not others. To me, I know almost exactly what kind of experience I'm going to get at a Pearl Jam show, and coming from that other fanbase, it's a welcome change of pace. The song choices are a lot less important to me than the interaction, the crowd, and the sound.

    This tour has been fantastic. I've listened to just about every show they've ever officially released, and am super grateful I hopped on this Spring. Thanks to everyone I met and spoke with waiting in poster lines and in neighboring seats.

    Onwards to Fenway and Wrigley!

    That's a ridiculous price, especially since most on eBay are replicas, though who can really tell the difference anymore I suppose.

    This was my first PJ show and aside from really bad sound at times (like a delay in timing between the drums and the rest of the music which was explained to me as the speaker positioning at Wells Fargo), I don't think I could have created a better setlist myself. Amazing! My only regret is not discovering this whole PJ universe sooner. I am on the bus!

    Maybe it was where you were sitting?

    I had no sound issues where i was sitting.

    Can't wait for the Bootleg of this show.

    I've digested this concert for two weeks now and can confidently say that this show, my 31st show was the most powerful show I've ever seen. I attended the following shows at MSG which were great but nothing will compare to what happened on the 29th. For us lucky fans we witnessed our band perform arguably the most impactful album of our generation. Each one of us who grew up with this band lived some of these songs or related to the messages of these songs that were performed on the 29th. For me, 'Release' and 'Alive' were two of those songs where the message made me feel like I wasn't alone, that i was going through similar shit and Ed's words helped me get through it. 'Ten' made me love rock and roll. This night was one of the most special musical nights of my life and I am forever grateful to this band.

    The greatest American rock band performed one of the greatest albums of all time and we witnessed it..... Thank you
