Pearl Jam in Stockholm July 7th 2012 – an amazing experience!

Pearl Jam. I’ve always thought they are a good band, but not at the top of my list. However…
Last night I got to see something purely magical during their gig in Stockholm! They were amazing! Mind-blowing!

They played for 2 hours 50 minutes and it’s one of the best concerts I’ve ever seen! Such dedication, passion and something something so genuine I didn’t know what to say or do.

It seemed like they never wanted to go off the stage. They played around immensely, both on the stage and with the audience, and the ambiance in there is something that I’ll keep with me forever.

The Swedish news papers also gave it their highest grades in their reviews, since they KNEW that this gig was one of a kind – the type you’re happy to get to witness once or a couple of times in your lifetime:

Review in Aftonbladet (in Swedish)
Review in Expressen (in Swedish)

And if that wasn’t enough (there’s more, you say?), I got to go there with my beloved Cecilia, who has been a huge Pearl Jam for a long long time. To see the sheer joy and awe in her face really brought tears my eyes, and I’m so SO happy I got to be there that magical night, and to share it with such a magical person!

    Pearl Jam is a great band (real rock soul). Eddie Vedder has a great voice.
    Also check the other band Brad (Stone Gossard plays in it)

    Sometimes what Google Translate can’t handle is awesome as is.

    I’d like to see them too. Here in Belgium, they were at a festival some days ago, and I read some rave reviews too. It was described as pure passion and respect for fans.

    The exact opposite of what Manson showed last friday. Sadly, I attended this one. What a disappointment. 40 minutes late on stage, and a less than stellar concert (bad sound, too).

    Skierpage,

    Ha ha! :-)

    Ced-le-pingouin,

    Yes, some band/artists are great at this, while others miss the mark. Everyone can have a bad night, though.

    Robert, like you I was fortune to see PJ in Stockholm; however, like your friend, I am a huge fan and was counting down the seconds to see them at the Globen. I couldn’t agree with you anymore, hands down, that this was the best concert I have witnessed in my life. Not only did PJ crush it by playing for almost 3 hours and every song that any PJ fanatic wants to hear, but the crowd made it that much more memorable. I have seen Pearl Jam now 5 times, and this one became my #1 concert of my life. I hope Eddie, Stone, Mike, Jeff, and Matt play with that much passion for the rest of their career. I am luck too, cause I get to see PJ and Foo Fighters in Atlanta, GA in September!!

    Austin,

    Good to hear! Especially since you’ve seen them a few times before, and can testify to how great this one was.

    Enjoy seeing the one in Atlanta!
