They showed that. Do you recall the songs that they played?

It did take a bit long after the Malala speech to get to Pearl Jam. They should've just went Beyonce-Bono-Malala-Pearl Jam. Maybe a short transition after Malala. There were plenty of speeches/videos between acts earlier in the day. And she gave such a good speech that the crowd responded to (and Bono a great introduction) they didn't really need any more videos or talkers after her.

Tired and might screw it up, but I think it went: Mind Your Manners, Evolution, Given to Fly, Elderly Woman, Lightning Bolt, Daughter, Unthought Known, Better Man, Alive. They did 12 songs total I think so you might not have missed much except Alive, Imagine, Rockin'.

Ed Sheeran is great live by the way. Never paid much attention.

MSNBC didn't show Daughter either. Thanks for the info, Penny.


They performed 12 songs, but only 8 were shown on television. The last song televised was Redemption Song. Instead of showing that pointless recap, they should have shown the whole set. It's not like MSNBC had anything important on afterward. It was fuckin' Lockup.

I may file Mind Your Manners & Lightning Bolt in the underrated category. So good.

They definitely fucked the transition between Beyoncé and Pearl Jam. They had a nice moment with FLOTUS into Bono into Malala. They didn't need to have the CEOs of Comcast and AOL come out and push a stupid button... or if they did, they could have done it all at once instead of splitting it into like 5 different groups. The crowd was getting very antsy between those last two sets, and many just simply left.

There was also a large exodus when Bono took the mic, but that's another story. And a few "he came to talk and not sing? The fuck?"

I was actually impressed with Sheeran as well. Not my favorite artist but he was really good live.

The benefit of being late to the show is an easy exit. I can't imagine how long it took those in pit 1 to get out of Central Park. And the MTA had southbound subway service at 77th and 68th streets closed for weekend construction, because the MTA is the most inept organization in the world. Alas... I was able to get a few blocks over and get in a cab to Grand Central and onto the 7 very quickly. I think i was home within half an hour of the last notes of Free World.

Was a fun time and a good experience, but now I'm jonesing for a real pearl Jam show. It's tough being the only one within 50 feet jumping to Unthought Known, as most around me look puzzled.

I hope they never televise the concert on MSNBC again. I'd much rather see it on HBO. When HBO used to televise Comic Relief, they also used to have it available for free and also on other networks. They showed Beyonce's performance in its entirety. Then all the bullshit in between. Finally they get to PJ and, a few songs in, they go to a commercial. I was so fuckin' pissed. Eventually, they play Redemption Song and the hosts announce that's how they finished the show. Next, you see the place emptying out. It was a horrible edit.

Yeah exactly, everyone was antsy when the CEO's were there. Malala had the crowd cheering and feeling good and it would've been perfect to go into Pearl Jam. But like 15 more minutes with CEO's talking and such made everyone very antsy. Apparently some booed [not near me, though plenty started leaving during that]. When they were doing the button thing I heard Kerry Washington (I think) go "Pearl Jam is coming!" during it.

There was plenty of it during the long day so they didn't need more, especially from CEO's. After Coldplay, there was like an hour of it until Sheeran came on, aside from that Tori Kelly who did like 3 songs. Sorry but I don't think people want to hear CEO's talk after seeing Beyonce-Michelle Obama-Bono-Malala.

Definitely need to see a full Pearl Jam show. Apparently new album coming 2016.

Comcast - NBC Universal is one of the primary sponsors, so I wouldn't count on the concert jumping to HBO or anything like that next year.

Nice! So people who went to their last tour, was it as pain staking trying to get tickets as it was for the ie tour, or is there a bit less traffic?

Might prices be similar or less?

Depends on the market, I'd expect. I know the last Wrigley show they did sold out super fast. Their LA shows also went fast.

Pricing, they are more than U2 GA but way less than U2 lowers. Probably looking at $90-100 for good seats.

Prices for a pair of tickets through 10 club range from $157 to $188 (MSG).
Most shows are $159 for a pair ($79.50 per ticket), Philly is $172.00

I assume Fenway and Wrigley will be a bit higher (not on sale till early February)

In general tix will be hard to get for NYC and Philly in the arenas (maybe Toronto as well since its a single show) and presumably Wrigley and Fenway also (Wrigley in 2013 was very tough, but it was only one night).

The other shows shouldn't be too bad to get.
