Pearl Jam, Manchester, August 17th 2009



Pearl Jam have consistently held the crown of being my favourite band ever since my friends in school Aido and Bago introduced them to me when I was a 13 year old with the dodgiest undercut known to man. They didn't grace Ireland on their short European tour so I got tickets to see them across the water. Mind you I probably would have done that if they were playing Ireland anyway. The thing that's so great about a Pearl Jam show is that you have no idea what they're going to play. Gone are the days when I wanted them to play the rarest song ever at the show I was at, purely so I could say I was there. I just want them to play an awesome setlist and rock my face off. They duly obliged. Jane, who wouldn't be as enamored with all things Pearl Jam as I am came with me, mainly due to her awesomeness in wanting to share something that was a big deal for me. She gained a new appreciated for how good they are. The night was mildly marred by sound problems with vocals and guitars but Pearl Jam aren't exactly known for hitting every note right and for some reason that definitely endeared them to Jane. Eddie Vedder has a tendency to forget lyrics and the band managed to screw up the end of 'Go', a song which they've played over 250 times.
Highlights for me where 'Last Exit', 'Why Go', 'All Night', 'In Hiding', 'Sleight Of Hand', 'Given To Fly', 'Go', 'Smile' and 'Leash'. All of it was awesome really. It was fun to see Eddie interact so much with the crowd, chatting to the front row and dedicating 'Smile' to a girl who had been to 70 shows and giving her his harmonica afterwards. Super glad we went.
