Show Notes

As Cheap Trick is performing, various members of PJ are spotted rocking out (and Mike taking photos through a small hole cut in the black cloth enveloping the scaffolding!), including Ed doing chinups and swinging on the scaffolding poles like a monkey and then holding his hand out, practically above his head, snapping his fingers rapidly with Rick Nielsen acknowledging him and grinning. During the first few songs, someone tosses a football and Ed catches it and looks around as if to say, “What the hell?!” Then he says, “check this out” and he flings his shoe off his foot simply by throwing his leg up in the air and kicks the ball 40 yards into the crowd. After ‘Animal,’ Ed addresses the crowd for the first time: “We made it, looks beautiful out there, we’ll try to do it better than last time we played here, I feel better, I’m Ed Vedder.” During ‘Habit,’ Ed changes the “speaking as” line to “speaking as a dumb-ass, beer-drinking, propaganda-believing, missile-shooting, American.” ‘Surrender’ is a Cheap Trick song. Right before ‘State,’ Ed refers to a Mike having a special guest, and Mike plays the song with one of Rick Nielsen’s guitars. ‘Nothingman’ is highlighted with lightning bolts on the backdrop. During ‘Leatherman,’ Ed’s guitar cuts out during the break, Matt just keeps drumming. Then: “Driving in today, I saw two of the coolest things I’ve ever seen: First I saw a guy wearing a watermelon on his head [laughing] – that guy’s Canadian of the year; then I saw the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen on the tour: I saw a guy with a truck, and in the back of a truck he had a couch, a chair, a fridge … this song’s about a bad-ass, the people up front are a bunch of bad-asses, the people in the back are a bunch of bad-asses; you’re all a bunch of bad-asses.” During Mike’s ‘Alive’ solo, Ed is walking along the speaker stands, dancing and pointing and jumping up and down. “Next time we come here – actually there might not be a next time – I don’t know if you know this, but the Doomsday Clock was pushed forward a few minutes, the Doomsday Clock is now at 5 minutes to midnight; you guys don’t know what I’m talking about, do you – it means we’re all gonna die, fuckers …” leading to ‘Immortality.’ ‘Do the Evolution’ features the new video on the backdrop. A great crowd with Ed acknowledging: “Next time we’ll do three shows in smaller venues so we can get the same number of people in.” When the band takes the stage for ‘Yellow Ledbetter,’ the crowd noise is unbelievable and Ed covers his ears! He changes the lyrics from “don’t ever wanna feel this way again” to “am never gonna have this much fun again.” Ed appears not to want to leave, staring at the cheering crowd and leaving with his hand placed over his heart.
