2nd encore:

  • Old Man [Neil Young] (with Liam Finn and Eliza-Jane Barnes on vocals and with Eddie Vedder on drums!)
  • Rockin’ in the Free World [Neil Young]
  • Hard Sun [Gordon Peterson] (with Liam Finn on drums and Eliza-Jane Barnes on backup vocals)

The show clocked in at just under three hours. That’s a three-hour solo performance; apart from a few collaborations with his opening act it was nothing but Vedder the entire time. Couple quick highlights: “Arc” and “Hard Sun” were standouts, but tonight’s version of “Masters of War” was frigging titanic; think the famous 10/16/92 Vedder and Mike McCready collaboration, let age sixteen years, add Iraq war, and let simmer. Just…wow.

(Oh, and the asterixes: * – Pearl Jam song, ** – Vedder solo song.)
