As you all surely know Pearl Jam has begun their short East coast tour but man has it created a frenzy in the Pearl Jam community. They're droppin' bombs of rare tracks all over the place and it's making of quite a special little tour!! The Bonnaroo festival will probably go down as one of the most surprising shows in the bands history! Not only did they play for three hours but they dropped songs like "All Night", "WMA", and opened the monster set with "Hard to Imagine"!! Fortunately for everyone the band is releasing all of the shows through their bootleg program which you can pre-order at the official Pearl Jam page. Just go to the goods section.
The cool thing is, thanks to some amazing people taping these shows, you don't have to wait for the official bootleg to arrive at your door step. Audience recordings of the first show of the tour in West Palm Beach and the amazing performance at Bonnaroo have surfaced and will be made available here. In fact the West Palm Beach show is available now in the new 2008 bootlegs section!! That show is available in both FLAC and MP3s. The MP3 files were converted from the FLAC files at 320 kbps using dbpoweramp.
The Bonnaroo show is being uploaded to Megupload as I type and will be available in the same formats as West Palm. I am hoping to have those links up later today!!
Enjoy the shows! This is shaping up to be one hell of a tour. Who knows what they in store for Camden and MSG. I'll be at both Camden shows so hoping for something special there.
