Pearl Jam

Eddie Vedder

What a difference a venue makes. From small Melkweg on Wednesday, to big (too big for my liking) Ahoy last night. But it was worth it, so get to see Pearl Jam. The show had sold out within minutes, so I was very happy to get the tickets, even though the seats were quite a way up on the tribune. Only the third show in a year according to Eddie, but I wouldn’t have guessed. They played a tight show with a nice mix of classics, newer stuff and even a few covers. Nice sing-a-long version of Betterman and a great rendition of Black, one of my favourite songs of theirs. They played for a little over 2 hours with two encores. So all-in-all a great couple of days! Must say I’m tired now though, might have to schedule in an early night tonight.

There’s a review (in Dutch) on and lots more can be found on the Pearl Jam forum.
