Watch Pearl Jam Debut “Lightning Bolt” & “Future Days” At Wrigley Field

By Miles Bowe / July 20, 2013 - 2:06 pm

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.
