Btw, did anyone else feel it would have been cool if they had shown the band on the screen suspended from the ceiling? I could hardly make out any of the band members' faces from all the way across the arena!
Awesome video.

Unfortunately, Zoots, PJ are very low-tech when it comes to stage/lighting setups. It's all about the music.

Haha! He is looking good these days (said the very straight male poster). I'm pretty sure that this is a mural of Eddie, here in my hometown:

I noticed it yesterday on my hike. What looks to be a long goatee on the left image is just a strip of concrete missing. It's right in the middle of a construction site by the harbour...a little sign of how massive PJ are here, at least in my circle of friends.

Next time we hook up for a show, I'll utilize my Ten Club closeness-to-the-stage powers to full effect. We can throw our thongs on stage.

I don't think that's Eddie...certainly not Mike or Stone playing guitar next to him, and "death" doesn't exactly fit the PJ mold.

I think "death" may have been addded later.

It does remind me of Eddie & long-haired Stone, circa 1992. Actually, the more I look at it, the more I'm convinced I'm completely wrong.

Yeah, I would have liked a screen too. I was spoiled by being close to the stage in Hawaii and I really appreciated his . . . facial expressions and all that intellectual stuff like Zoots said

I got the digital download of the Tampa show yesterday. I wish all bands did things like that.

No kidding. I remember how freaking cool that was, downloading my show off the comp and right onto my iPod.

I won't bitch about how U2 or Springsteen don't do it here, I'll save that for when the tour forum reopens.

Here's the PJ section of my complete and lengthy Bonnaroo report now on our mainpage.

Pearl Jamming
I hate to admit it, but I don’t know if I will ever forgive Maynard and Sting for the respectively too short headlining Tool and Police sets at the 2007 Bonnaroo. This annual lost weekend begs bands to do something special—whether it’s cover songs and spontaneous collaborations or sets longer than what everyone else got to hear on the tour, especially if you are a headliner or late night performer.
This is no minor, nitpicky detail. This year, fans spent an original asking price of around $250 on tickets and how much more on gas, food, and libations—it’s hard to imagine. Just getting to the ‘roo has become a big deal during the economic downturn—this being the first of these festivals I attended that wasn’t a complete sell-out and where scalpers couldn’t pay more than $175 in the Manchester Wal-Mart parking lot. For better or worse, we adore our rockstars and plan the entire year around what shows we might be privileged enough to catch. But the good news is that Eddie Vedder and company get it. Pearl Jam gets it and got it good on June 14th.
At Bonnaroo, I see a lot of shows solo or with one or two friends. For Pearl Jam, we managed to organize about a dozen of us who’d spent much of our weekend working in Planet Roo to take in the show together. Holding hands and forming a chain, we found our way to the rectangle of ground behind the formidable sound-boards. Although our view of the stage is obscured in this area, the sound is always great, and we have plenty of room to dance with abandon—which is exactly what we did.
While Tool and Police had been allotted three-hour spots and played for less than two, Pearl Jam inverted that formula much to our pleasure. They were supposed to play for two hours and played for three. The solid set included so many great songs—“Corduroy,” “WMA,” “Life Wasted,” and “Even Flow” among them.
While some ‘roo fans prefer the “shut up and sing” response to political soapboxing, we knew that Eddie Vedder would try to rally the people to work for peace and justice, and his proselytizing was so heart-felt that I hung on every word. I’d never heard his “No More War” song written for Iraq war veterans, and it could not have hit me harder. While he never mentioned Obama by name, Vedder made it crystal clear what he wanted folks to do in November. Music can’t change the world, but all of us together can—or something like that—went the sentiment.
The Who cover of “Love Reign O’er Me” was excellent, and cheesy or not, the closing version of “All Along the Watchtower” kicked it—and hard. Sure, I am sad that I missed the Coup because of this, but there was no way that I was leaving this show early.

Hartford 6/27/08:
Quote:
Set List: Can't Keep, Breakerfall, Last Exit, God's Dice, All Night, Small Town, Sad, Brain Of J, Big Wave, In Hiding, Not For You/Modern Girl (Sleater-Kinney), Daughter/Another Brick In The Wall part 2 (Waters), Why Go, Jeremy, Gone, Immortality, Porch

The bastard stepchild of New York and Boston that normally gets a "run of the mill" type show gets the best setlist of the tour (hopefully only until Monday).

Wow what a great show. Glad I was there.
