Follow the strangest tribe

Continuing the poster gallery series,* here are the posters from Pearl Jam’s European jolly this summer. The Trieste one looks like a Spinal Tap cover. I’ve added Vedder’s solo show in Meco, Portugal to the end. There’s a separate post about Vedder’s anti-war comments at Milton Keynes.

Between the gigs in Poland (3 July) and Belgium (5 July), Matt Cameron and Mike McCready found time to get over to London to join Soundgarden at Hyde Park, where the band played Superunknown straight through. Here’s a review from Every Record Tells a Story. The other band members were doubtless grateful there were no travel hitches.

Posters again courtesy of Spreading the Jam.

Pearl Jam played a scarcely credible 129 different songs across the 12 gigs – the full list is below. I promise to try to get out more often. It’s a great mix of songs you’d expect, songs they don’t play very often, and the odd one where you think, ‘they played what?! damn, I missed that gig!’ They could have played a full set of songs beginning with the letter S. Only five songs featured every night: ‘Alive’ and ‘Even Flow’ from Ten, and ‘Mind Your Manners’, ‘Lightning Bolt’ and ‘Sirens’ from last year’s Lightning Bolt.

Here’s ‘Present Tense’, a personal favourite from No Code, from the Leeds gig. Some classy stripped-down blues guitar from Mike McCready. Are we getting something out of this all-encompassing trip?
