I caught the west coast tour opener in Vancouver last Spring. $75 may be a bit steep, but Eddy puts on one hell of an intimate+eclectic performance! I think the gig was over 2 hours.

Also, the opener is Liam Finn (son of Neil Finn, Crowded house) will leave you floored! He performs each instrument, moving from one to the other, looping the sounds with an effect pedal, a la Keller. Honestly, his performance, alone, is worth half the admission price!

Neil Young charged close to $300 for the top ticket price at Massey Hall. If he played an all acoustic show I think it would have been worth every penny. I'm excited as anything for this show. But I'm bummed about the friends first presale not being available.

Neil Young also had being Neil Young going for him.

But I should get over it. :) I'd like to see Eddie Vedder play a solo show, but that's too rich for me. So hopefully one of the shows is filmed for a $20 DVD.

up in the balcony although it still sounds good...i feel a million miles away. the person onstage is the size of an insect. i've spent 100 to see jazz legends there before a few times and felt like i didn't really get the experience from up in the clouds (balcony). maybe i'm picky.

anyway, as much as i want to go to this, i might have to miss it (financially and time wise). all shows and no worky hasn't been paying the bills so good. grrrrr. :mad:

i could probably be talked into it though ;):P

Forever Young (Bob Dylan cover)


Society (w/ Liam Finn)

Arc **personal highlight; Eddie sang by looping various vocal harmonies and just ripping it to shreds by milking that "Eddie" wail he does best; it got pretty intense!!


Hard Sun (w/Liam Finn and Eliza-Jane Barnes ****with Ocean backdrop and smoke machine! Great uplifting way to end the show!!)

Songs from 1st night not played:

“Picture in a Frame†(Tom Waits cover)

“I Won’t Back Down†(Tom Petty cover)

“Growin’ Up†(Bruce Springsteen cover; Eddie made some joke by how Bruce is "The Boss" and Eddie's merely an "employee")

I was only able to get tickets to the second night at Massey Hall. I would have loved to be at both shows. It was a hard ticket to get and I felt lucky to be there at all. I read a review from the first night and heard that Eddie said that as far as he is concerned there is no other venue he would rather play. He told the crowd he'd rather be at Massey Hall than Folsom Prison. We got a little tribute to Neil Young with Eddie covering four of his songs. Eddie played Long May You Run, an acoustic RITFW, Helpless and he played drums while Liam Finn played a rockin' version of Old Man. Other highlights for me included Let My Love Open the Door with the Massey Hall choir, Masters of War and I am a Patriot. Hearing the soundtrack from Into the Wild was beautiful. I've been listening the soundtrack quite a bit since I saw the show. It was a marathon of a show, Eddie played for close to 3 hours. I love seeing a show like this I like the banter from that stage almost as much as I like the music. I'm pleased that he made his way to Toronto and I can't wait for the new Pearl Jam album.
