No openers, one full set, two encores, three hours of Pearl Jam. The band is on tour in support of their new album, Lightning Bolt but the tour is also a celebration of albums past. I am a fan. I have been a fan for a long time and the first time I saw them live was in 1992 on the island of Oahu. I started with Examiner.com over two years ago as a concert photographer and the end goal, although I never thought it would happen, was to cover a Pearl Jam concert. It was an amazing experience and there is no way I can keep emotion out of this one.
This tour is epic and if you get a chance to see Pearl Jam live you must do it. Remember, this is not a review of the concert. There are many things that I can say and it would not even come close to expressing the experience. I was allowed to cover the show as a photographer so that is what I will give you.
If you are interested here is the set list for the show in Charlottesville, Virginia.
