Pearl Jam at the Philadelphia Spectrum - 10/31/09 Setlist

Every Thursday The Rock and Roll Guru provides brief commentary on a set list from a recent concert.

Pearl Jam was selected as the last band to ever play the Spectrum in Philadelphia, and they closed the building down with an amazing four night run that concluded on Halloween. This setlist is just incredible! Not only did the band play 41 songs, they played Bugs for the first time ever, they pulled out a cover of Devo’s Whip It for the first time ever, they performed Sweet Lew (from Lost Dogs) for the first time ever, along with the rarely played Rats, Glorified G, and Out Of My Mind (a rare B-side), which was performed for the first time since 1994. I’ve seen this band conquer masterful nights at the Garden, including the show they released on DVD, but this blows them all away. If ever there was a Pearl Jam concert to own, this is it.
