Pearl Jam

After having quite a run-around to get tickets for Pearl Jam, I was especially looking forward to their concert at the O2 Arena, and on Tuesday, all our waiting finally paid off!

My only worry was that the tickets I had bought off eBay would be fake and they wouldn’t let me in – but thankfully, this was not the case! In fact, it was quite the opposite – the tickets were actually pretty good!

Pearl Jam

Gomez – another band who Kristy and I are both very fond of – were the opening act, so really for us it was two concerts in one. They played a short set consisting mainly of songs from their latest album, and also a few old favourites such as Silence, and How We Operate.

Pearl Jam came on around 8:45 PM to a momentous applause, opening with their classic song Release. They played a two-and-a-half hour set, consisting mainly of songs from their older albums, quite a few B-Sides, plus a few previews from their upcoming album Backspacer.

The show was simply brilliant! The highlights for me were Alive, Footsteps, Yellow Ledbetter, and by far the best version of Crazy Mary that I’ve ever heard.

I managed to record a bit of the show on my camera, and was surprised by how decent the quality was. Check it out:
