What do you guys expect to be the best shows of the upcoming Euro tour?
I think both Lisbon, Antwerp, Dublin and Athens.
Anyway, I´m hoping for Berlin, Arnheim, Vienna and Bern, because I got tickets for those shows :)
What are your thoughts?
Hey, could you stand another drink,
Better when I don't think,
It seems to get me through.

    Any show in Italy

    Definitely Pistoia and Verona at the least :)

    Yes, I have been to some Pearl Jam concerts. Several of them.

    I hope Dublin but i don't think so because its the first show of the tour...............lisbon and the italy shows should be amazing

    I hope Dublin too,but i also doubt it. They may be a bit shakey with it being the first show back for a month. I just hope we don't get a "hits heavy" show. But it don't matter if we do,I'm just happy that they are coming.

    i was taling to my mate about this a few days ago and even they "only" play a 25 song set i'd still be happy i don't expect it to be a really long set at all.

    I think Antwerp will be special bc its their first in Belgium and I'm thinking Bern and Verona will be highlights too.

    When we all meet inhere after the shows during the summer/autumn, everybody will agree that this has been their most legendary tour ever! And everybody will agree that the Berlin gig was their best since Pinkpop '92. The band will eventually give in to presure from the fans to release the show on a triple DVD box with all sort of extra goodies. And when I get old I'll be able to say: Yes, I was there!!!!

    I think Arnhem will be the SHOW, cos it's the real opener on the european land, not the islands. Anyway, in the UK there are just two festivals so the shows might not be as long as a regular concert. Let Arnhem be the real taste of PJ experience!!!
    Why do I keep fuckin' up?

    ANTWERP

    Indeed, it will the first time ever in Belgium ! At last !!!

    Normally they already should have played twice on the Rock Werchter-festival. The first time one or more PJ-guys were sick. The second time was the day after the tragic Roskilde-gig.

    So, all the Belgian fans expect something special to make it good. Let's say a gig of 4 hours ;) !?

    See you in Antwerp...
  • Reading is gunna be amazing! Pearl Jam closing the biggest music festival in the world this year! simple as that. Paris will be special too

    Verona:

    - Best venue ever
    - Saturday Night (a lot of euro fans will go there)
    - Seating, european 10c members filling all first rows
    - All PJ shows in Italy are awesome

    Also 2 days in Lisbon will rock. The only city with more than 1 show.

    I think Dublin. By far it is the most anticipated/popular euro show. PJ will be coming off the back of a two leg US tour so i don't think they will perform badly. However it wouldn't suprise me if we do get a 'generic' setlist but again, who cares?

    I think if any shows will have a generic hits heavy set list then it will be the Reading and Leeds shows. They'll be shorter shows, probably about 75 - 90 minute sets so it'll be new stuff and the biggies (even flow, alive, betterman etc).

    Which means that at Dublin they may take a few chances....maybe even road testing some songs they haven't played in a while for inclusion in the tour later....like Deep (please!!!) or Mankind (Please, Please!!!!!!)

    I love this logic and sincerely hope you're right.
    Also, theis show sold out in 9 minutes. If the band know that, the n they might might be thinking "Oh they're all so hardcore in Ireland. Lets give 'em a treat" :D

    Yeah, he said that at the Buffalo show in 2003 which was an amazing show. Of course, then they went out the next night and did an even better show at State College, so...

    has there been anything else on the support act? 3 hours of pearl jam anyone?

    75 minutes would be quite short for a headline act. I'm not sure what Leeds/Reading headliners usually get but I think it will likely be 90-105 minutes. Still not an entire PJ show but enough for a regular set plus one encore.

    As for the other shows, I think Verona will be incredible. I'm hoping Bern will be a sleeper... one of the best Pearl Jam shows I've ever heard was in Switzerland in 92.

    I'm only going off how long the headliners used to play at Leeds and Reading in years gone by. The Friday and Saturday headliners had about 75 minutes while the Sunday night headliner had 90. The last time i went to Leeds or Reading though was in 1999 so things may well have changed.

    PJ were certainly aware of how quick the Astoria sold out but then I guess that was to be expected. I reckon they will know if a show sold out very quickly.

    dublin- they want to scream hello again...1st euro stop after 6 years.
    reading- eddie wants to make up for their last reading show...beside they are closing a 3 day festival.
    lisbon- sand and surf city with 2 shows...an epic.
    italia- take a pick...highlights will be legendary verona and mysterious pistoia.

    i pray to God that i'll still be alive for all these shows.

    i really hope dublin is a great show... Its the first 'proper' show in europe in 6 years and also its before two festival dates, so PJ would probably also be in the mood to rock-out a bit! Oh and Pj or at least eddie may be here for a few days before the show seeing as Ireland is the popular tourist destination that it is and they'll have the time to see it. The west coast is also famous for its waves/surfing so maybe that will put eddie in a good mood for the show!

    Anyway all i can do is hope!
    JUST PLAY THE F***ING NOTE!!!

    well the 2000 gig didnt seem to be that long in dublin either!!! i really
    do wish however that if (???!!) i get a ticket that they'll play as long
    as the last date on the 2000 tour in seattle and the pen state gig in
    2002/3....as i own both live albums and they both 3 cd's long!!! fuck
    that was a long winded way of gettin my point across!!!

    (i'd help you if i could)

    but there is no way the dublin gig will be as long as either of those two they were once off gigs, most shows are clocking at about 2hrs 20mins (give or take 10mins) but because dublin is the first show of the tour i doubt they will be on for a really long time.




    (i would like to point out that i am doing my best to not hope fort a long set because a) if they do play a shorter set i won't be disapointted and b ) if they do play a long set i will be the happiest guy in the place!!!!!)
