Everyone was quite well-rested in time for Alpine: two full days off.
I am biased when it comes to Alpine Valley because it is my favorite venue in America. I am always optimistic about shows at Alpine.
The show opened with a typical opener, Sometimes, and blasted into the classic staple Corduroy. I seriously don't think a Pearl Jam show is a Pearl Jam show without a performance of Corduroy.
Gods' Dice into Faithfull was more than awesome. And then they went into Immortality?!? NICE!
Deep went into my first I Believe In Miracles. I hadn't listened to any of the MP3s of them performing it prior to this day, so it was a nice thing for me to hear.
The encore began with a solid Vs. medley. Old school Go into Animal...then into Elderly Woman and Glorified G.
Any show that Glorified G is played at automatically gets a stamp of approval from me.
They also played Bushleaguer...again!
Second encore was rocking: Fortunate Son...Baba O'Riley...Ledbetter to close.
No Smile in Wisconsin...like no Baba in Chicago...it just felt weird.
