Anticipating MSG

By UrbanAnthropod, May 10, 2010 7:35 am

Warning: This is not a post about going for Chinese take-out!

Less than 2 weeks to go

Two years ago, Pearl Jam made their way into NYC and played two shows at Madison Square Garden.
Vedder/Cameron
I’m a huge fan and try to make it to each show they do locally.
Ed talks
As a member of the fan club, I am afforded with the opportunity to purchase pre-sale tickets. And based on seniority, I can get pretty decent seats on the floor of MSG.
Ed through the crowd
This year I was away in Kathmandu when a second set of local shows were announced in Newark at Prudential Center. I’d actually seen Vedder alone at Prudential Hall about 2 years ago since I was unable to acquire the fan club tickets to either of his shows at United Palace Theater in the city.
Half Full
In the end, this saved me some money. And the pre-sale was only open to those who did not acquire tickets to either of the 2 MSG shows this year.
Ed
They always put on a good show, even if I don’t like the set-list. This year, I was unable to get fan club tickets to both shows. I have the good seats the first night, but we only got tickets with the normal people the second night.
Closing out the show

What I have to look forward to

The 2008 shows were limited to the East Coast, gearing up to a headlining stint at Bonaroo that year. It was preceded by Ed doing a solo Into the Wild tour on the West Coast which he then did on the East Coast. They stated that the tour was “just because”. Last year, they released a new studio album and had a supporting tour that skipped NYC and Boston. However, they played the last 4 shows ever at the Philadelphia Spectrum. We took a day trip to Philly to catch one of the shows where my seating was much improved over the normal NYC seating. If Philly was any indication of how Pearl Jam still has it, I’m definitely anticipating these 2 upcoming shows, even if I have to sit with the normal people on the final show.
