Set List

01. Elderly Woman Behind The Counter In A Small Town
02. I Am Mine

(Ed tells the audience that he can’t believe he has only been here three times. He says if the crowd is good he will report back to the guys in Pearl Jam. He also tells the audience they are going to be here for a while so take advantage of the seats. “I have also noticed that out in the audience…(guy in crowd yells “turn your fucking phones off!” Ed says, “my phone is off. I turned it off before I came out here. If you see a phone on it is some other asshole.” He then notes that the they are having trouble with the lights which is causing them to turn on and off. It isn’t part of the show and they hope to have it worked out.)

03. Can’t Keep
04. Sleeping By Myself

(“the ukulele kept the sad songs from being too sad. It was just light enough to keep out suicidal thoughts.” He talks about a book on knots he got and learned to tie a noose. His friends didn’t appreciate the joke when he sent them polaroids of him with a noose tied to a beam and around his neck. “The only reason I could write a happy song is I finally met the right girl”)

05. Without You
06. Light Today

(Ed talks about being about 18 or 19 and having to move back to Chicago because he had no money and no job. He tells of riding busses and sitting at cafe tables where customers have left half cups of coffee and drinking those and getting refills. He also spent time at the library looking at music books and learning chords for songs. One of those songs happened to be the song Sean Penn asked him to do for “I Am Sam”. Ed knew that song from his days spent in the library.

07. You’ve Got To Hide Your Love Away-(Lennon, McCartney)
08. Wishlist

(Ed tells a story about when his daughter was about three “sitting in the back seat of my car singing ‘Hollaback Girl’ and she has my squint, so she is back there singing ‘it’s my shit, it’s my shit..’ looking totally bad ass”
“The other song she would sing is”…Ed then sings and plays a little bit of ABBA’s “Fernando” changing the title lyric to “Orlando”.)

09. Good Woman-(Chan Marshall)

(Ed’s youngest daughter brings out the guitar for the next song. Ed comments, “That is a good woman”)

10. Better Man
11. Far Behind
12. No Ceiling
13. Guaranteed
14. Rise-(Dedicated to two great kids that aren’t directly related to Ed. Griffin and Haley)
15. Long Nights w/ Glen Hansard

(some knucklehead in the audience keeps yelling gibberish at Ed. Something about mashed potatoes and gravy. Ed asks him what he is going on about. The guy then yells “Ed ate all the leftovers!” Ed jokes, “If I was George Bush and gave people nicknames yours would be “Leftovers”. Audience laughs and cheers. Ed then says, “you know there was a guy a few shows ago that was just yelling nonsense. Nobody could make out what he was yelling. Well, the guy wrote an email to us and apologized for being so drunk and acting so rudely. We thanked him and sent him a link to alcoholics anonymous. True story!”)

16. Immortality

(Ed recalls a story about playing a place called “The Edge” back in 1991 or so. He talks about the terrible steroid freaks working security. Ed started to climb on I-beam and one of the security guys went after him and they ended up having wrestling/jousting match on the I-Beam. Ed managed to escape and dive into the crowd leaving the security guy holding his flannel shirt.)

17. Porch

Encore Break 1

18. Last Kiss-(Cochran)
19. Just Breathe
20. Pump Organ
21. Unthought Known

(Ed’s friend Bronson Arroyo comes onstage to play with Ed. Ed says he doesn’t normally play this song. The last time he did it was for a $5,000 donation to the Heal EB charity. http://healeb.org He had heard that Bronson could play the song and was in town so he thought he “would play it again for free.” He does ask that people donate to the charity if they can. “This will work better if you guys sing along like we around the campfire. Can we get the campfire turned back on?”

22. Black w/ Bronson Arroyo (playing acoustic guitar)
23. Society w/ Glen Hansard-(Hannan
24. Sleepless Nights w/ Glen Hansard-(Bryant, Bryant) busking no mics or PA
25. Falling Slowly w/ Glen Hansard-(Hansard, Irglová)

(some guy yells ‘Glorified G’. Ed says, “What’s that?..we are never ever getting back together? Is that what you said?” He then notes that if Jimi Hendrix was alive he would have been 70 years old today. “And he probably would have lived next door to me. Me and Jimi, hanging out, smoking some pot. Mike McCready on the other side. Hell I wouldn’t even need any pot just those two guys playing would be enough.”

26. Crazy Mary-(Williams)

(Ed switches to acoustic guitar and plays another outro round of Crazy Mary then segues into…)

27. All Along The Watchtower-(Dylan)
28. Keep On Rocking In The Free World-(Young)

  • NDB

    A potty mouthed 3 year old is not good news. Finally got a whiff of the weed in the house of their favorite UNCLE. Thank God my nephews and nieces aren’t like Vedder’s.

  • kill

    GREAT SET LIST, AMAZING
    EDDIE IS GOD 😀

  • Dennis

    So he rarely plays his best song? Makes sense? “Black” is an incredible song.

  • Deviate

    What is his fuckin obsession with ukuleles?

  • Truth

    NDB = Troll

  • The Whiny Hipster

    @NDB – what?

  • Katharine

    Truth, who are these idiots? Always has to be some negativity from these assholes, posted after each setlist.

    I was I JAX both nights last weekend- and I’ve been to a LOT of shows in my life- but they all pale in comparison. Hoping he will comeback around, with and/or without PJ. I will drive another 800+ miles for that.
