    Pearl Jam Tour Update: Mansfield, MA

    Pearl Jam concluded their brief 13-date East Coast tour with a pair of shows over three days in Mansfield, MA. And three things are always true about Mansfield: It takes two hours to leave the parking lot, the police are complete assholes who hassle anyone from out of state or holding a beer (to the point of handcuffs), and Pearl Jam always kick ass. Night one (June 28), however, was cut abruptly short, with several songs on the setlist left out of the actual performance.

    Pearl Jam Tour Update: New York, NY

    NEW YORK CITY: Pearl Jam's two-night stint at Madison Square Garden was the most highly anticipated run of the band's brief 13-date jaunt, and when it comes to energy and surprises, Pearl Jam never disappoints and certainly delivered in NYC. Tuesday night's (June 24) performance was extremely loud and raucous, energetic and moving. However, after no less than 15 tunes made their tour debuts over the last three shows, the band trotted out only three. The setlist was similar to what Pearl Jam had been performing for the whole tour, but the crowd's energy lifted the band to an above-par performance.

    Pearl Jam Tour Update: Virginia Beach & Camden, NJ

    VIRGINIA BEACH: Pearl Jam's concert in Virginia Beach came on the heels of a blistering, inspired show in Columbia, SC. Fans in Virginia who were expecting another fire-under-the-heels set would walk away disappointed, however. The first "Long Road" of the tour opened the set on a mellow note, a theme that would permeate the entire first set. "Low Light," "Small Town," and "I Am Mine" all had the atmosphere of a campfire sing-along. "Sleight of Hand" was played for the first time in almost two years. The crowd was mostly subdued, with very little dancing or movement. The band members themselves seemed full of energy, but it was not manifested until the first encore, which opened with "Comatose" and ended with "Jeremy." By then, the crowd was too far gone to elevate the level of the show from good to great.
