    my first show was extremely kick ass:
    sometimes, go, spin, hail hail, animal (song had to be stopped because so many people fell down)

    1.  Release (best opener period)
    2.Given to Fly
    3  Corduroy
    According to our "weakest link" polls, this one would be a good one (all three songs were in the final four).
    my first show. Getting GOAT opener Release and the rain pouring down was pure magic.

    Stumbled upon the Detroit 2014 show.

    Has there been a better triple-punch start of a show this shows:

    1. Release
    2. Oceans
    3. Nothingman

    I'm not even the biggest fan of Oceans. But thats a great start of a show. 
    That show was something special - might have even topped what occurred the next night in Moline

    Greatest start I witnessed live: Berlin 05.07.2012:

    Oceans
    Breakerfall
    Animal
    ...
    Save You
    In Hiding

    5 songs in I would have been happy even if they stopped right there... :) (actually even Oceans and Breakerfall would have been enough ;)

    Cincinnati 06 was Long Road, Save You, Hail Hail...Personally that was one of my favorite openings to a show. Then they went into WWS, Severed Hand, and Corduroy. Opening with Why Go at Lolla 07 was awesome too.

    My fav, that I've seen.  
    April 23, 2003
    Champaign, IL 

    1 Do The Evolution
    2 Corduroy
    3 Save You

    When they came out and ripped into DTE, I knew we were in for a great night.  They did not disappoint. 
    Clearly something was under Ed's skin.  Early in the show he said, "I feel like a lion in cage.  Any Christians want to get eaten?"

    Arguably one of the best shows ever by pearl jam.  Check out the video bud.  Longest pj show until penn state in '03.  Just listen to the opening speech by ed....sick sick sick sick sick show.  Also check out the monologue in the middle of porch.

    My first PJ show was pretty good.
    Murfreesboro, TN 3/26/94
    1. Rearviewmirrow
    2. Whipping
    3. Go

    But that Wrigley 2013 was pretty awesome too
    Weird order starting with RVM, the longest of the 3.
    Back then, it wasn't as long as it is now. At least not when they played it as an opener

    Fenway 2 was great

    1. Pendulum

    For me it did too moline. Moline kind of loses its way after no code, which was epic on its own Detroit is better too to bottom imo. But that's a whole other topic...

    For me, Charlottesville 2013:
    Pendulum
    Release
    In My Tree

    I'm also a big fan of Memphis 2014:
    Pendulum
    Wash 
    Low Light

    I absolutely love Pendulum, so the 2013-2014 shows with the slow builds were perfect to me.

    I definitely prefer the slow burn start of a show that became common on the LB tour... work up to the hard stuff... what's the rush, we've got all night :)
  • ed243421ed243421 Posts: 6,416
    I like my shows like I like my sex

    Tailgate for a few hours to get ready

    rush to the front

    walk on to Metamorphosis 2

    fast start

    no elderly woman

    no piss breaks

    Smoke a few bowls during encore breaks

    Over 3 hours

    The hard and fast openers usually feature songs you'd be likely to get later in the set, too. The traditional slow openers usually feature songs that if you don't get then you aren't getting at all. There are some exceptions of course but if your show is starting with Why Go or Corduroy it's likely you aren't getting Release or Long Road or Wash (etc.) that night.

    Hampton 2016- Long Road mid-set
    Amsterdam 2 2012- Release in the encore
    Quebec City 2016- Wash in the encore

    These 3 shows are exceptions to the rule and are highlights in my collection.  :)

    To stay on topic:

    Vancouver 2013
    Oceans
    Can't Keep
    Low Light 

    I also enjoy the Euro 2014 shows with Black early in the set.

    Vienna 2014
    Long Road
    Can't Keep
    Black

    We really are lucky to be fans of such a great band that puts great care into making every show unique.

    I'm with you both there. Not gonna lie, "the good bad and the ugly" entrance music set the stage nicely, too.


  • I'm more in favour of the "hard and fast" openings personally. TO1 '16 gets off on a great start with Go (with a weird Why Go drum opening), DTE, Mind Your Manners.....

    Then they go into all of Binaural.... with a few more good rockers....

    I wish I could've been at that one. Love that bootleg. One of my favorite versions of go, with the intro and all. Incredible start!

    The "fast" or harder openings used to be a lot more frequent before 2013 when they had opening bands and played 2 hours... now that they have stopped fucking around and are pushing 3 hours every show I MUCH prefer the slower atmospheric 2-3 song openers
