Pearl Jam performed their ‘Ten’ album in its entirety in a live concert in Philadelphia. Now video and photos are going viral and social media is buzzing. You can see highlights right here and get the scoop on the surprise performance of the band’s landmark 1991 debut album.
It’s a rarity when bands perform an album, track by track, and for frontman Eddie Vedder and the full Pearl Jam lineup, this marks only the second ever time they’ve treated concertgoers with a full, live performance of their album, ‘Ten,’ and the first time in the U.S.
Released in 1991, it was the album that catapulted the band to fame and produced three of their most iconic hits, “Alive”, “Even Flow”, and “Jeremy.” To date it’s the band’s bestselling album, and has been certified 13-times platinum.
The performance was to mark the tenth time the band has sold out Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia according to Rolling Stone And, what a celebration, and numerically convenient to boot. And fortunately, for those of us who were not in attendance that night, the videos and photos have been flooding social media and you can see many of them below. A banner with the number 10 is seen hanging in the arena.
As RS notes, the first time the band played ‘Ten’ in its entirety for a live audience was nearly a quarter of a century ago; in 1992 in Munich. So yes, this is a rarity indeed.
And that was just the opener, as Pearl Jam played a massive 32-song set with numerous encores. The band is currently on a North American tour that kicked off in Miami on April 8th and will wrap in Chicago on August 22nd.
