At a Friday night show in Moline, Illinois, Pearl Jam randomly decided to play their 1996 album No Code in full. (They also played a new song called “Moline.”) Last night, playing Milwaukee’s BMO Harris Bradley Center, the band busted out another superfan treat, playing all of 1998’s Yield in the middle of a titanic 36-song set. They also brought out Cheap Trick guitarist and Wisconsin hero Rick Nielsen (suddenly very in demand among the ’90s alt-rock set) to cover the Who’s “Baba O’Riley.” Later on, Eddie Vedder did a solo cover of Tom Petty’s “I Won’t Back Down.” They got really, really big crowd singalongs on both those songs, too. Watch fan-made videos below.

If they gave out awards to the arena band who seems to enjoy playing live the most, I feel like Pearl Jam would win easily every year.
