Pearl Jam kicked off their summer 2018 European tour on Tuesday night at the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam, Netherlands. The band dedicated the performance to Anthony Bourdain, kicking off the show with “Long Road.” See the setlist and watch videos below.
Setlist (via Sea on the PearlJam.com forums):
With house lights on, the band comes onstage and Ed reads a message mostly in Dutch. In English he says that (missed name David?) and his brother Andrew are in our hearts.
01. Long Road
02. Low Light
03. Elderly Woman Behind The Counter In A Small Town
05. Do The Evolution
06. Given To Fly
07. Mind Your Manners
08. Red Mosquito
10. Even Flow
11. Severed Hand
12. Not For You
13. Daughter / Another Brick In The Wall Part 2-(Waters) 30 seconds lyrics only changes line to “Preacher Leave Those Kids Alone”.
(Referring to “Daughter” Ed says speaking of girl who turn into amazing women this next song is by Brandi Carlile. We sped it up a little but I don’t think we ruined it. But we haven’t played it live yet.)
14. Again Today-(Carlile)
(Ed asks if William from Ireland is in the audience and says the next song is for you. He then stops and corrects himself and says not the next song but the song after. The next song is for everyone but don’t go anywhere William. Mike gets confused about what song is next and after some back and forth the band play “Got Some”.
15. Got Some
(So, this is for William..)
(Our favorite museum is the MOCO museum. It isn’t the biggest but it has the artists we like best and we want to thank the people that run it for welcoming us. You can’t find a better man but you also can’t find a better woman than Kim from MOCO)
17. Better Man
Encore Break 1
(When the band comes back they are all seated to play a couple of quiet songs. Ed holds up a photo of his friend Eric from the Tivoli (?). It is one of Ed’s favorite places and while he is unsure if Eric is here tonight he wants to play the next song for him.)
18. Yellow Moon
(The chairs are removed, band stands up.)
(Ed goes to the barricade and sings with the audience)
21. Why Go
(Ed spots a woman in the audience and says, “I don’t know your name but I recognize your face. She wants us to play a song but there is no way (Sweet Lew). He says they will work on it though. He dedicates the next song to Mr. Hanky Panky and a guy named George that he met today and to the entire audience for giving them so much positive energy)
25. .Fuckin’ Up-(Young)
(Mike takes Polaroids of the audience at the front of the song. At the end of the set while saying thank you Ed indicates the audience is giving chills or goose bumps)
