Pearl Jam Plays Three More Tour Debuts, Including Bust Out Cover Of The Who

first_imgLast night, Pearl Jam continued their conquest North of the border, playing at the Canadian Tire Centre in Ottawa, ON in Canada. The band has been on a roll throughout their whole tour, continuously introducing new songs into the rotation with tour debuts at nearly every performance. Last night was no exception, as the group worked in three songs that had not been played in 2016, including “Big Wave,” “Parachutes,” and The Who’s “Love Reign O’er Me.”The show started with the title track of Pearl Jam’s most recent album, “Lightning Bolt,” before grooving on classics like “Mind Your Manners” and “Do the Evolution.” Only towards the end of the first set did fans get to hear the bust out original “Big Wave,” which hadn’t been played since January 19, 2014.As is standard for Pearl Jam, the band broke out into not one but two encores. The first of two not only featured the first “Parachute” since October 1, 2014, but also the first performance of “Love Reign O’er Me” since November 24, 2013. The Quadrophenia finale is an incredibly emotional song, and Eddie Vedder’s voice added some extra flare to the classic rock ballad.The band also started the second encore with a debut cover of “All I Want Is You” by U2, but the song snippet quickly worked its way into “Wasted Reprise” and “Life Wasted.” The band finished it out with some classics, “Black” and “Alive,” before sending fans home with a version of Neil Young’s “Fuckin’ Up.” Another great show from Pearl Jam in the books!Check out some highlights:ParachutesLove Reign O’er Me (Partial)All I Want Is You/Wasted Reprise/Life WastedThe full setlist can be seen below:Edit this setlist | More Pearl Jam setlistslast_img
