Pearl Jam Performs Entire Vs. Album During Sold Out Greenville Show
Pearl Jam was welcomed on stage by loyal fans who had traveled near and far shortly after 8:30pm Saturday evening at Bon Secours Wellness Arena. The next three hours was nothing short of amazing.
Pearl Jam didn’t waste any time getting the crowd pumped by starting the show with ‘Corduroy’ from the Vitalogy album. Then, magic happened as the band played the Vs. album in it’s entirety, the first time the band has ever played their entire second album live.
Pearl Jam has played the entire Yield album and the entire No Code album live but ever performed Vs. live…until now.
Once the band finished playing all 12 tracks from Vs., they continued rocking the arena with 20 more songs, including three covers: ‘Comfortably Numb’ from Pink Floyd, ‘Last Kiss’ from Wayne Cochran and ‘Baba O’Riley from The Who.
Eddie Vedder, the band’s lead singer, ran through the crowd with a wireless mic during ‘Leash’, gave a shout out to Horizon Records on their 40th Anniversary, briefly spoke about North Carolina’s House Bill 2 saying, “he wished people could move on from small matters like what bathroom a person should use and start taking care of each other.” Vedder also asked the crowd if they knew who performed at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena first…. saying, “You are right, Janet Jackson. Or Miss Jackson if I’m nasty.” Then he said, “no disrespect to Miss Jackson but WE were the first band!! We’re back!!”
