RNR News and Notes

Pearl Jam continued their epic (but brief) summer stadium tour this weekend - playing two shows at the famed home of the Chicago Cubs - Wrigley Field.  The shows were a homecoming of sorts - as Eddie Vedder is from the nearby town of Evanston

 

On Saturday night - the band played for nearly 3 hours (!) and went through a career spanning 32 song set list (see full list below).  

 

The band kicked off their 2nd encore with Vedder paying tribute to his favorite MLB team - the Chicago Cubs.  The team's 2016 World Series trophy was brought out and the band went on to cover David Bowie's Rebel Rebel for the first time ever.  Check out fan footage of the show below -
