Pearl Jam @ Wrigley Field, Chicago 7/17/13

Pearl Jam fans in Chicago last night got a mix of awesome and not-so-awesome at Wrigley Field when after only a handful of songs the band had to stop due to rain. The happy ending is that after 2+ hours of delay the band came back and delivered one hell of a set. In addition to playing new single “Mind Your Manners, the band debuted some others songs off their upcoming album Lightning Bolt including the burning title track, and a gentler, acoustic song called “Future Days.” After the rain delay, “Mr. Cub” Ernie Banks joined the group for Cubbies tribute “All The Way.” You can watch fan videos of the new songs, and check out the setlist, below.

  1. More awesome. Pearl Jam live is just awesome. Even with a rain delay and songs left off due to a curfew.

  2. Interesting that they’re doing Eddie Vedder songs when they have such a vast catalog. But then they’ve always worked in cover songs, too. I wonder if they’ll tackle anything from any of the other band members various projects?

  3. WHY IS EVERYONE JUST STANDING THERE?
