Eddie Vedder got choked up during Pearl Jam’s comeback show in St. Paul, Minnesota, featuring a tribute before “Wildflowers” and a tribute to the Maui fire victims.

Cbbjr posted on the Ten Club board, “Great show, particularly the beginning and end. I had never been to the venue before, but the sound was amazing and the crowd was really into most of the show (I was near bottom of sec 117).

My favorite moments were GTF – this was my 14th time hearing it, and it was probably the best version I have seen, LBC (the song I most wanted to hear), and maybe even Mind Your Manners (I can’t believe I am typing that). As someone mentioned, the crowd LOVED Mind Your Manners tonight. If you had only the video without any audio you would have thought it was something off of Ten based on the audience reaction. Getting Indifference and Black so early was also great.

Show was really good, but I thought the middle dragged a bit. I like them on the album, but 7 o’clock, Clairvoyants, and Superblood Wolfmoon were lackluster (meanwhile Buckle Up kicked ass).

Ed choked up in the intro to Wildflowers, and the intro also included a lot of people in the pit getting Ed to pause so that security or medical personnel could check on someone in the pit on Mike’s side who must have fallen down during his speech. I went with a friend who had never seen them live, and one of his big takeaways was how likable and down to earth Ed is.

Can’t wait for Saturday.”
