I think the coolest thing for me is that I got to see 6 Achtung Baby songs performed at concerts in 2005 and 2009, which is pretty commendable. Butchered no-solo version of Mysterious Ways notwithstanding. Along with The Electric Co. and Running To Stand Still.

On the PJ side of things, I find it interesting that I've seen 6 Binaural songs in 2006 and 2009, since it seems they're neglecting that album more and more as time goes by. Which is pretty ironic, since I think that album gets better and better with time.

You've missed the legendary 2nd Randall's Island show? How come? Pffft.

The Boston 1994 concerts, all of the Mansfield shows, Hartford 2008... That's impressive. You're a lucky guy, my friend.

As I said earlier, I've seen them three times (Antwerp 2006, Hawaii 2006 when they supported U2 and Rotterdam 2009). And this might also be a rarity for Pearl Jam shows: when I saw them the second time (in Hawaii) every song they played, except 2, they had also played in Antwerp. The only new ones I got were Life Wasted and their cover of Hawaii 78.
And oh, 6 songs were played all those three times (Even Flow, Alive, Small Town, Better Man, Given To Fly and Do The Evolution).

Had to choose 1 show to buy fanclub tix with (only one allowed back then), chose the Saturday show, passed on Sunday as I live in MA, also passed on Hartford (pepper spray riot) and Portland Maine (Dennis Rodman appearance) as they were on a Tues and Thurs.

I got John Popper on harmonica for Evenflow though.

But as you note, I've seen some pretty damn good shows.

This is rare, but the fact is they were the opening band and their setlist was focused on the hits that get played a lot. So it makes sense. I'm expecting something similar at the Venice gig I'm going to in July, since it is a festival date. The European tour schedule is a bit disappointing this year because most of the dates are festivals, and I can't think of a band I would like less to see on a festival than PJ. Then again, there were some great festival gigs in the past, Bonnaroo 2008 being the best example.

Yeah, but Rearviewmirror is a hit too. Much more than Crazy Mary (sorry, don't really like that one).

True. It's also why I didn't buy tickets (yet). And why I chose to see them in Antwerp instead of Arnhem, the Netherlands, in 2006 (while that wasn't a festival date, it was in a (small) stadium and I really prefer to see Pearl Jam in an arena).

just for the sake of comparison... doing the same thing i did with PJ was, let's just say, a tad easier with U2.

to review...

my all around PJ stats...
--8 shows
--238 songs for an average of 29.75 songs per show
--103 unique songs for an average of 12.875 songs i've never heard before per show


and now, my all around U2 stats...
--15 shows
--309 songs for an average of 20.6 songs per show... to be fair, two of those 15 songs were brooklyn bridge and rock hall of fame, which had shorter setlists. combine those two sets together and divide by 14... which comes out to an average of 22.07 (if you really wanna me technical, if i get rid of those two shows all together, it's an agerage of 22.3 songs per show)
--63 unique songs, for an average of 4.2 songs i've never heard per show
--i've gotten Vertigo 16 times. i've seen U2 15 times, i've gotten Vertigo 16 times. this is made all the more (non)impressive by the fact that two of these 15 shows occured before Vertigo even existed.

16 times

Well, Pearl Jam obviously nails U2 in that department, but you're a big Springsteen fan if I'm not mistaken, so that would be interesting to compare, if it's still a slow day at work.

As usual you are correct sir. The good old battle Ticketmaster days where they found obscure venues to play...I hope to never grace Randall's Island again, the traffic made getting out of Foxborough look like a ride on the Autobahn.

i take the RFK bridge home a lot because there's less traffic heading that way than the midtown tunnel or the queensboro bridge, but i can't imagine what trying to get out of there for a concert by car would be like. there's one exit on and off, and you get onto a bridge right at the toll booths. that would be a nightmare of epic proportions.

and you don't really wanna walk it either, 'cause you'd end up on 125th street in east harlem in the middle of the night. not exactly an ideal situation (even though harlem really ain't that bad anymore)

so a final comparison...

--Springsteen: 182 songs at an average of 26 per show
--U2: 309 songs at an average of 20.6 per show (22 if you only count full length concerts)

Unique Songs
--Pearl Jam: 103 unique songs for an average of 12.875 per show
--Springsteen: 81 unique songs for an average of 11.57 per show
--U2: 63 unique songs for an average of 4.2 per show

Thus Then... How Much of the average set list is material that I've seen before
--Springsteen: 55%
--Pearl Jam: 57%
--U2: 80% (75% if you only count full length concerts)


but remember... U2 concerts, unlike the stones, are about new songs and not just rehashing the past!
