Pearl Jam Live at the O2 Arena, London [18th June 2018] – Review 

  On Monday the 18th of June I had the pleasure of seeing one of my all time favourite (if not most favourite) bands, Pearl Jam, play live at the O2 Arena in London.
As with previous Pearl Jam shows I have attended, the fans were in high spirits, looking forward to seeing Eddie, Mike, Jeff, Stone, Matt and Boom rock the O2 stage for night one of two nights of shows in London. There was no supporting act, which was great in the sense that all fans enjoyed a longer set.
From the get go, the set was slightly different. For the entire night there were some unusual and rare choices of song for the setlist, including ‘Parting Ways’ which was played for the first time ever in Europe. Pearl Jam started the set slowly and ramped it up in intensity throughout. The reason for this however, as Eddie Vedder (lead vocalist) explained to the tens of thousands in attendance, was that he was having trouble with his voice and had seen a couple of throat doctors just hours prior to the show. The band did try to not let this have an impact on the performance, however it was evident that Eddie was in discomfort.
The sound for this show was great, throughout he whole performance nothing was lost in the mix. I was delighted to be able to hear Mike McCready (lead guitarist) play, and play well. Mike was performing really energetically and giving the crowd a proper show to enjoy. The rest of the band was also solid. The night came to a brilliant finale with the final two songs (Alive, and Rockin’ in the Free World) as the house lights came up and showed the thousands in attendance singing their hearts out. This was a truly wonderful way to end the night.

However, as a result of Eddie’s voice, the show that was organised for the day after (which I also had tickets to) was postponed. As a result I hope that the band takes note of this and takes care of themselves so that hopefully there will be no issues like this in the future. The tour is planned to carry on as normal.
