  1. amazing…I’ve been waiting for your review

    I saw them at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta in april 1994. It was one of the greatest experiences of my life…right behind the rolling stone at the meadowlands later that year. I’m envious of your experience. Their new album is terrific

  2. Funny, how I grew up in Washington, own EVERY album, quote their lyrics (love the words of Oceans, Sometimes, Better Man, Black, Wishlist, Just Breathe, etc) and yet I have never seen them in concert. What’s wrong with me? Glad you got to be a kid again. I recently felt the same way at a Jars Of Clay concert (yeah they’re still around and have matured with us thirty-somethings). Not sure why mainstream music turns on bands after their third albums, but some bands only get better with age.

  3. I am so glad it lived up to your expectations. Not that I didn’t think it would but I get a little nervous before a concert that has so much meaning for me, and I knew this show meant a lot to you.

  4. Sounds like a fun time! I imagine my wife feels the same way when she sees her favorite band: U2. I admit, I don’t have a musician or group that I feel that way about. Probably because I was all over the map with my musical tastes (the closest might be Weird Al, if that says anything 😉 ). Great post and I’m glad you had a great time!

  5. So glad you had a great time! I love Pearl Jam too.

    I was 15 when John Bonham died, and that was the year I started attended concerts. I’ve been to a lot of concerts (they used to be 12 bucks), but Led Zeppelin was the band I always wished I got a chance to see. And the Allman Brothers. And the Band. (I did get to see Levon Helm, though, which was fantastic.)

    • Oh man, I feel your pain on that one! I started listening to Nirvana the year after Kurt Cobain committed suicide, and was always disappointed I’d never get to see them play. I can imagine how awful it would feel if it were Zeppelin!

  6. Zeppelin is right up there for me too. Marcy’s comment reminded me of listening to some of my friend’s older brothers talk about Bonham dying.

    I was 11 and they all said that Zeppelin was the best ever so I was disappointed. Have never gotten tired of listening to them so I suppose disappointment isn’t totally off, wish I could have gone.

    Anyhoo, it sounds like the Pearl Jam show was awesome, that is very cool. I almost bought tickets, but it didn’t happen his time.
