SETLIST FROM EDDIE VEDDER’S SHOW YESTERDAY IN LONDON

From the Ten Club board:

01. Walking The Cow-(Daniel Johnston)
(Ed starts “Trouble” but stops immediately. He talks about a prank he used to pull that involved flashlights and smacking a friend with a pillow. He says that all the flashes from cameras feel like that prank is being pulled on him. He offers to make all the faces he is going to make for five seconds while people take pictures in the hopes that the flashes will stop after that.)
02. Trouble-(Yusuf Islam)
03. Can’t Keep
04. Sleeping By Myself
05. Without You
(Ed talks about the venue and all the great bands that have played here and how he never imagined he would see the place let alone play it. He has the lighting mixer turn up the house lights so he can see it better. He remarks that with all of the flags in the audience it looks a lot like The Olympics, except the seats are full here)
06. More Than You Know-(Rose, Eliscu, Youmans)
(A very young girl brings out a Ukulele for Ed. He comments that child labor laws in England must be lax. He then thanks Harper for bringing him the instrument)
07. Broken Heart (played on an old electric ukulele)
08. I Am Mine
09. Brain Damage-(Waters)
10. Dead Man
(Ed tells a story about an older gentleman that worked at tiny grocery on a small island. Lester would be gone from the grocery for several weeks and when Ed asked him where he had been Lester would say he had been to Switzerland or some other distant place. Ed later found out that “Lester the Traveller” hadn’t left the island in 30 years. Ed would still ask Lester where he had been traveling.)

19. You’ve Got To Hide Your Love Away-(Lennon, McCartney)
20. Lukin
21. Porch
Encore Break 1
(Ed tells a story that ranges from him reading an article about corn communicating with other plants with audible clicks, to a friend that liked to make hallucinogenic tea that would make you think plants had eyes, could see and communicate with you. This eventually leads to Ed living on a small island alone and naming plants and trying to communicate with them. When a palm tree drops a coconut at his feet he likes to think the tree was offering him sustenance but admits it could have been trying to kill him)

    Boo-hoo 2 daughters. Right. Operative word — prank. He often pulls this off to make people think that he has kids. They are not his. IRS forms say he’s not even married. The kids are 10 club’s pigshit manager Tim Bierman’s. Please stop all of this bullshit Eddie Vedder. You’re stupid lies aren’t even backed up with documents. Go ahead fans, lap up his fucking lies. That’s why the Oscar Awards jury just hates this man. He has no integrity and probably never have. Now that’s the difference between him and the Betterman Chris Cornell.

  • Ben

    Dude… shut your shit :)

  • Spents

    Wow.Conspiracy theories about….

    Eddie Vedder?

    I think someone needs a hobby.

  • Danny

    Went to the EV show last night in London – it was awesome! He put on a great show!

  • http://? Becca

    Think the paronoid pixie at the top needs to stop drinking the special ‘tea’ Vedder talks about………or mabey he should start then his rambels would only be acknoledged by the plants.

    That is all :)

  • Zach

    Is that psycho serious?

  • lol

    great set list, eddie vedder fucking awesome! omg 😀
    30 songs solo playing is no joke

    :) EDDIE IS GOD 😀

  • Shayla

    Sorry, but 30 songs doesn’t mean much when about 1/3 of them are covers. I can see that at the bar down the street.

  • SuperSG

    Chris Cornell sings Betterman better anyway IN MY OPINION! PJihadists are free to scream Loolooloolo and fly planes into my house… or…. they could be rational and watch Cornell sing it on Youtube before attempting to combat me on this one.

  • Calvin McLain

    You have access to EV’s tax forms? Please do post!

    Oh you don’t have them? That’s what I thought…

  • SuperSG

    haha, written sarcasm. funny stuff.

  • Calvin McLain

    I’d like to get the posters for each of these shows put up instead of the stock pics of Vedder. Any chance of that Brett?

    And someone needs to get out in the sun and enjoy life.
    Wish I had known Eddie was playing. I’ve been a bit wrapped up in the Olympics. Bugger

    From the sound of the Amsterdam show, based on the one bootleg from the show on the 25th of July these Europeans are a lot more respectful then North American and Australian audiences. They are so quiet in between each song it’s odd, being use to all the stupid whistling and yelling of the hardest PJ songs to transition to acoustic like Yellow Ledbetter, GO, Brother, Comatose and I keep hearing Blood too. Seriously, you think Blood or even Evacuation are gonna be played acoustically?

    On a side note, if you haven’t already, check out Tom Morello’s version of Guerrilla Radio. A lot of fun to play and really simply transition to acoustic.

    I have started to realize the reason why a lot of music is actually passed off as good is because a lot of people don’t play instruments of any kind and are unaware how simple and otherwise unoriginal something is. Because they have no idea what a chord progression is or the slightest idea what goes into making that sound they call music. I’m sure this applies to a lot of things in life, but I’m starting to pay attention to it more now.

    Anyway, much respect to those Amsterdam fans as I would very much like to see a Vedder show where it doesn’t sound like a goddamn revolution is about to take place in between each tune, it gets rather annoying. Especially when the man is gonna play what he’s gonna play regardless of what enlighten request you think needs to be heard by the masses at such a ridiculous decibel level.

    And to all those assholes that whistle; GO FUCK YOURSELVES. It and you serve no purpose other then to show you know how to easily annoy many people in your immediate vicinity. I won’t tell my two stories involving revenge on this type of audience member as it was petty and otherwise rude, and I’m not proud of it. But at the time it felt so good, and I received much respect from both dates I was with, along with the fact that both men ceased their whistling for the rest of the shows. That aside it’s a barbaric action perpetrated by those who have nothing intelligent to do or say therefor they let out a high pitched squeal of ignorance. Informing those around him that he is not too bright and requires people look at him because of his ability to make such a noise. Like a child looking for praise by doing something stupid.

    I digress again…I gotta make it to a European solo EV show next time he comes around, especially Amsterdam, it just sounds ideal for a EV show.

  • Zach

    Boo hoo. You don’t like it; don’t go. I agree to one point-it can get annoying and I may or may not have bounced a few ice cubes off of an idiot’s head once from a few rows back, but it doesn’t take away from my enjoying the show.
