Pearl Jam Plays 57 Different Songs in Two Nights
Pearl Jam played 57 different songs over the course of two nights this past Friday (October 18th) and Saturday (October 19th) at the Barclay Center in Brooklyn, according to Music-News.com. With the exception of 10 songs, the set each night was completely different, mixing well-known hits with deep album cuts and a selection of cover tunes. Six of the songs that made both nights’ set lists were from the new album, Lightning Bolt, while the other four that made it were “Alive” and “Porch” from the band’s debut album Ten along with “Do The Evolution” and “Given To Fly” from Yield.
Five of the band’s best known songs — “Jeremy,” “Who Are You,” “Nothing As It Seems,” “World Wide Suicide” and “Last Kiss” — did not make either night’s show, while hits “Daughter” and “Better Man” were only played one night.
The band just wrapped up another two-night stand, in Philadelphia, and next heads to Hartford, Connecticut on Friday (October 25th). The current tour will extend well into November.
Pearl Jam is touring behind its 10th studio album, Lightning Bolt, which came out on October 15th and is widely expected to debut at Number One on this week’s Billboard album chart.
