At Pearl Jam’s show in Berlin, Germany on Thursday, fans threw beer cases onstage during “Porch” off of Ten.
It was during an instrumental part when the audience began throwing around what appeared to be pieces of flat cardboard that look to hold six beers, with some making it to the stage as Eddie Vedder watched. Jeff caught one and used it to play his bass. Ed climbs down to the barricade for the end of the song.
After the encore break, referring to all the beer cases the audience was throwing around, Eddie Vedder said he knew the crowd was drinking but he didn’t realize how much they had been drinking. He compared them to Seattle, or Seattle to them.
He related a story from a guy in Prague who was adamant that Ed reads his note. The note says I went to the show with a neighbor I left with a wife. This song is for you and neighbor. Pearl Jam then performed “Thin Air”.
