They do say a bands greatness is measured by how well they stack up live, well I'd have to admit that pj simply are one of the most fantastic bands of the last 20 odd years in live performance terms.
agree 100%. i saw them in philadelphia in 2005 when they only did a short tour of the NE of america. they did a rarity night of songs...UNREAL. only true pearl jam fans would appreciate the fact that they did "around the bend" "wash" "in my tree" and "hard to imagine". it was one of the best shows ive ever seen.

i love how eddie drinks a bottle of wine up on stage. their synergy up on stage is unrivaled. i think travis is up there with pearl jam for amazing live shows. saw them at the festival in kilkee, co. clare last summer. UNREAL. fran healy said it was the loudest concert they ever played

Pearl Jam are fantastic live but you do them no favours by comparison with those Scottish peddlers of blandness.

Very clever....the pun wasn't intentional though (I'm not that clever).

Fair enough! I liked some of their stuff myself once upon a time, even bought one of their albums (The Man Who) but I didn't like the stuff they released in the last few years, thought it was a bit bland/boring.

their last album Ode to J. Smith is pretty good. back to the electric guitar like in good feeling. but to each their own...you either love em or hate em.

anyone going to see kasabian in cork? psyched for that show. want to do ****** too, but budget is kind of tight. any other good shows coming to marlay park this year? i saw metallica is playing. saw muse/glasvegas/kasabian there last summer...brilliant show and brilliant venue

Are you thinking of starting a Pearl Jam tribute band or fan club in the Galway area?

would love to start a tribute band! just thought it would be cool to go out and grab some pints with fellow pearl jam fans. just heard from my brother in texas, that pearl jam is headlining Austin City Limits festival. highly jealous over that.

NICE! autumn release....my fav time of the year next to spring. vs. came out in autumn...hopefully its on par with that.

being american, i cannot wait to see pearl jam live in europe. the fans seem even more passionate over here. do they ever play anywhere else in ireland besides the point in dublin?

They played in Cork before, think it was the supporting No Code tour. They also played Slane way back in 1992 if I'm right. I'd say we're unlikely to get anything other than a single Dublin date in future.
