Full Show Friday: Pearl Jam Reading Festival 2007

Last year we searched the murky back waters of youtube to find full concerts and posted them to the site monthly.  That was all well and good but this year RtBE is upping the ante with a show every week to celebrate Full Show Friday's.  These shows are of varying quality and may not be here for long so enjoy them while you can...As always, please support the artist every which way, but especially by seeing them live (if they are still playing)...This week...Pearl Jam!

For the month of October we will be highlighting bands that will be playing this years Voodoo Experience, this is the last of our four entries...see you at Voodoo next weekend.

The one act we can not wait to see, and we have seen them a bunch already, is Pearl Jam. One of the few stadium ready rock bands still around, so when they take the stage at this years Voodoo Experience on Friday we will be expecting a good show and they will damn sure deliver even if we weren't too high on their newest release

That said, last time we were in NOLA for Pearl Jam was at Jazzfest a few years back it is easily the worst we ever saw the band play, they weren't bad, they were just faaasssstt! The whole band was juiced to be in town and they sped through their songs and bolted. So I am guessing they will get it together down in the Big Easy this time.

Now we have a show from England in 2007 when the band was fired up from the success of Pearl Jam (The Avocado) and the set is a rocking good time. They come out on fire teasing some angry Pink Floyd before a bunch of rockers, our favorites from the early going are "Corduroy" and "World Wide Suicide" Later in the show we dig "I Am Mine" (of course) but the whole thing is really well played. The show is pro-shot, pro-sound so enjoy, sorry the encore's ain't here.

Here you go with Reading from 2007:
