You wait 17 years and 8 months for a Pearl Jam gig, and then two come along at once! And then you realise that, whilst they were worth the wait, with a band as sh*t hot as this you really should have made more of an effort to see them over the preceeding 17 years.

But I shan't cry over spilt milk - and it's impossible to cry when you're feeling as elated as I am after seeing them at the O2 last night. SBE was awesome and will always live in my heart as that special time that I saw my favourite band in one of my favourite venues, but last night brought a totally diferent dimension to things. They were so on, and they filled that venue and made it feel like it was half the size (as evidenced by UncleSpaggles experience from the top row!)

When I saw the setlist from Manchester my heart sank a bit cos there were a few in there that they didn't play at SBE that I was dying to hear and thought they might not pull them out again - but they didn't disappoint. Black, Rats, Porch, Release, Light Years, Rats, Crazy Mary, I Got ID, Blood ... God, the list goes on and on. I suppose it was too much to ask to repeat the change-up of closing with Indifference, but who cares when Yellow Ledbetter sounds that good!

So Ed says they won't be back for a while? I will not be repeating the mistakes of my "youth" and letting the mere matter of a few thousand miles and a couple of oceans stop me from seeing this band. If they are not coming here then I'm sure as hell going wherever they are. You can't put a price on feeling this good the day after a gig - and for me there is only one band in the world that can do that. Thank you PJ for doing what you do - you make my world a happy place!

Don't know if this has been posted yet:

PEARL JAM held an on-stage protest as bosses of a London venue tried to force them off stage.

The rockers came on 15 minutes late for their gig at the O2 Arena last night and played right up to the 11pm curfew.

But they decided to keep playing after their third encore, as frontman Eddie Vedder told the crowd: "We usually finish after this song - but not tonight!"

They kept playing for a further 20 minutes, but when venue organisers trying to get them to leave the stage, Vedder sat down cross-legged in the middle clutching his microphone until his bandmates grabbed their instruments and joined him for one more tune.

The group is also facing a fine of up to £2,500 after Vedder openly smoked cigarettes on stage, flouting the smoking ban.

Those naughty boys!

That's cool that they played some extra tunes to make up for the late start... but smoking? In public?

That bastard! :roll:

:lol:
