Pearl Jam rocked Bonnaroo for three hours

-A.S. This summer, I have had the chance to see many of the rock icons of my youth. At Langerado that meant seeing Beastie Boys and R.E.M., and at Bonnaroo that meant Metallica and Pearl Jam. Both Blake and I were quite exhausted while we were waiting for Eddie Vedder and the boys to take the stage. As a result, we employed the only standing up for our favorite songs method.The first such song was “Elderly Woman Behind the Counter in a Small Town,” which Vedder explained they were playing because they were standing there looking out into a town. After the song he said it wasn’t until then that he realized how far back the estimated 70,000 people really went. Another great stand up song was one of everyones favorite Guitar Hero song, “Even Flow.” Guitarist Mike McCready played the entire solo behind his head, a favorite show off move of Zack’s when rocking the video game version.One personal highlight was “Release,” which has always been one of my favorite Pearl Jam songs. As not to be shown up by Metallica, who seemingly played three encores the night before, Pearl Jam came out for their first encore and had the entire place singing along to “Alive.” For their second encore, they came back out and played a great cover of “All Along the Watchtower.” Despite being very tired, I enjoyed my first Pearl Jam show a great deal.

    At the time I didn’t realize this, perhaps it was all the sandwiches I ate, but I was checking out my Twitter updates and the time of my update saying that Pearl Jam was covering “All Along the Watchtower” was 1:05 am. That means that Pearl Jam played for 3 hours. Siick.
