    it's kinda weird they have wma and abitw listed on pj.com as full songs instead of tags, Have they been doing that in the past or that just on the new site?

    If your complaining about this show then I just don't know what to tell you, maybe you've seen too many shows? There could be worse things to be doing on a perfect Friday night then spending time w/ 40,000 PJ fans in one of America's true shrines listening to the glorious sounds of these 5/6 men! You know there was only one perfect human that walked this planet and they crucified him, so complain away but, I truly feel sorry for the people that do! This board, wow pretty laughable!!

    I'll speak for myself, but I really think I,speak for others, no one is complaining about this great concert, but not every show can be the best show ever. That's just impossible. This was not the best show ever. this was a really good pj show with some flow issues and a few too many covers.


    Also no offense but Bronson arroyo was probably the worst musical guest I've seen ever brought out for any show. A mediocre red sock and an even more mediocre musician.
    Who said it was the best show ever? A lot of people here
    Who said Bronson Arroyo was the best musical guest?? No one, I simply remarked it was a terrible choice.
    Too many covers? Yes, 9 times out of 10 I'd rather hear a pj tune than a cover
    They still played 25 PJ originals or basically more then 99% of most bands entire set-lists! I only compare pearl jam to pearl jam
    Of a list that you could make of 100 things to look for at a special concert, this is what you choose to look for? Weird??? That's a lot of question marks, you seem a lil angry

  • Very surprised at the number of complaints here about covers and "skinny" set. It was 30+ songs in 2:50! C'mon back to earth now! This was my 18th show and I think it'll settle into my top 5 overall. I live in the area and was very glad I got the merch stuff done earlier in the day.

    I'm also SO glad they tricked us into the 6:30 preset. Imagine how late they would have started otherwise! It was my first time in Fenway, so I now understand how congested it is. What great place though! Eddie was giddy smitten with Fenway, you could just tell. The story about sneaking in long ago was just awesome. It makes total sense that they respected the curfew. I don't care much about the baseball stuff, but could tell it was special for many there which adds to the crowd's joy and overall atmosphere.

    I can see why not everyone loved the slower opening, but I thought it was brilliant through the first 7. The ramp up to Given to Fly and then MYM really revved up my area in section B1. The sound was great on the turf, and I'm really bummed to hear it wasn't in the grandstands (where I'll be Sunday). I couldn't see the stage, so I was grateful for the screens and great filming. Didn't ruin the show, by any mean, but I do wish I had a better number to get a good view in 10C seats.

    Strangest Vibe (WOW!) and Masters of War (WOW squared!) were my gems of the night.
    Patriot (even if it was a little messy) and Society were my personal highlights.
    Although I've seen it multiple times this tour, it was such a nice night/vibe for Comfortably numb.

    What a wonderful summer night of perfect weather and great music! Cannot wait until Sunday!

  • Two favorite moments from last night:

    1) when Peter Gammons was acknowledged and came out real quick. Growing up in Mass, Peter is a legend and HOFer. He's also a legendary PJ fan and after years of trying to get them approved to play Fenway you have to think Peter might have had a small part in it. They played I Am Mine which is Gammons' favorite. That's for you Pete.

    2) the two dudes with the ATL Hawks Mookie jersey and old school 92 olympics Bird jersey down front. Cannot think of a better outfit for front row at the first PJ show at Fenway, the same night the Olympics opened. They were way into it and Ed threw them the mic during Porch(?). Great job

    How was the tenclub line getting tickets? I was there yesterday (but got stubhub seats for that one) but was in too much of a rush to scope it out, I'm getting tenclub tickets for sundays show, just curious if it really is worth getting there by 4pm to get in line. Two and a half hour drive for me, or I would have gotten them today.

    I walked by the 10C table at about 5:20pm last night. There was no line. Seemed like a breeze to get the tix. Nobody was there.

    This might be my first fan view. Good for me. I agree with a lot of the posts that A) it was a great show, good time, great atmosphere and b) set list was lacking flow and slow at times. I didn't mind the slow start(I actually loved it) but the Strangest Tribe(which I enjoyed and completely appreciate..but nobody in my section knew), Society(enjoyed that too), Just Breathe(meh) and Sleeping by Myself(like, not love) foursome to start the first encore sucked some life out of the place. Life Wasted--which typically doesn't do it for me--really did it for me last night. Got the place rocking again. I can see the gripes with too many covers, but boy did I love Comfortably Numb and MOW. The hits, which typically I go through the motions for, really got me fired up tonight. Black, Porch, Corduroy, Alive...the place was electric for these songs. Special night. Also my sons first concert. He doesn't realize what a lucky lil fuck he is ;). My first show was Pearl Jam at the ole Garden April 10, 1994. Cool symmetry there.

    Can't wait for night 2...I'm expecting a epic show!
  • Great great night for me thanks 10c for great seats 3rd row in between Ed & Stone insane sound ...

    Fuck yeah @josevolution !! Glad you enjoyed it!

    I think they just list every cover as a song on this website. There's no distinguishing between a full song for a tag or teaser.

    was in 144, 3rd base, about 30 rows up, just under the overhang

    there were pockets of big fans getting down - my wife & I sat near 4 other folks in our immediate vicinity who were singing & dancing the whole time. But yeah, I expected it to be a little more than just "pockets" I guess. Given the rabidness for the tickets & merchandise, I thought the actual music would be seized with the same fervor. But hey to each their own, we had fun and had a good immediate crew around us who helped create our own little PJ "pit" wihout infringing on others who chose not to partake.

    Really hope our 10C for Sunday come through somehow...we just re-upped last year, so hoping there's some lottery winnings in that envelope!

    As far as the show...We saw Columbia SC this spring and Worcestor a couple years ago. Tough to compare as we were FAR closer to the stage those nights, but last night was superb. Really impressed with the sound & sight (thank you giant video screens!) as I expected both to be far worse.

    Sat in 144 as well. Row LL. Had a great time. Danced and sang all night. You can never go wrong with a PJ show No matter what people thought of the set list or being skinny or whatever. IMO, a bad night of PJ is still better than pretty much anything else. As a die hard Yankees fan I have to give props to Fenway and the people of Boston. The park is simply amazing and made for a great setting for a PJ show. Plus we met so many great people and had some good times with some locals. Also, the Mac N' Cheese Sand which at Bar Louie is off the hook.

    This one came up short in my book. A few miscues,relatively short set list and a couple odd placed tunes.
    1. The first Fenway gig. 2. The band has not played Boston in 6 years 3. a Huge build-up.........? Then At 10:30 the lights are on and it's over, really..?it feels a little skinny for a PJ concert in Boston. Admittedly I am not a fan of the larger venues, nor should this band be either . My 2 cents. See you Sunday.

    I'm with you 100% on every point. Finally someone else feels the same, I've been pounded on Twitter for having the same opinion. See ya Sunday! Here's to a stellar setlist!

    Red Mosquito, Lukin, Betterman all scratched from encore 2 due to 10:30 curfew. Really, 10:30 curfew ?

    I thought that 1030 was a "suggested" curfew and 1100 was the 'hard' curfew? I was really expecting them to go at least until 1045.

    I was just as excited as Eddie to be in Fenway. I walked in at 5:10 pm. Dropped my stuff at my seat and for the next 45 minutes did nothing but walk around to the Green Monster, by the mound, by third base, the dugouts, Pesky's Pole, the concourses.

    How can people be mad at them for leaving at 10:30? There is a strict curfew, why would they go over just to ruffle feathers? This is a little different than going over in an arena show. Dont be mad because they're following the "rules" these days.

    As for the setlist, you put this set in 2006, 2008, 2009, people go CRAZY for it and its the best of the tour.

    Having seen some seriously great, epic pj shows over the years , I am SO jealous reading your post. You are about to experience something special and be blown away, for the first time ever. What I wouldn't give to have that experience for the first time all over again. Especially now- this band has a deep catalogue, still brings it, they care a shitton and they're bringing it for longer than they ever used to. Awesome.

    This was only my 2nd Pearl Jam concert, but I can certainly understand why people go to see them over & over again. I’ve been a fan since 1991, but after seeing them live, Pearl Jam is like an addiction that I just can’t get enough of now. While I liked the smaller, more personal venue at Worcester, MA 3 years ago, the energy of the crowd at Fenway seemed off the charts & it looked like the band members were having a great time on stage

    It was an awesome show & I was so glad to hear Given to Fly, I Am Mine, Black, Unthought Known & Better Man performed live. I was kinda bummed though when only a portion of WMA was played! It was my new favorite concert & I can’t wait until the bootleg CD is available

    You are right & I had a great time. But, I'm not sure if "incredible" adequately describes just how awesome it was!
