1993-09-05 Gorge Amphitheatre, George, WA

The first Pearl Jam show at the gorgeous outdoors venue called Gorge. It started before dusk and ended in darkness, so everyone could enjoy with beautiful sunset away from the city. But it seems that only few could pay attention to such wonderful view, for the crowd was relentless in screaming, singing and surfing on each others heads. In the middle of the show, when it was still some light, Mike started to play a tune from "Yellow Ledbetter", Ed said: "The song is called Daughter", - and the band broke into "Daughter" ending it with "Tonight Is The Night" tag.
This is an audience video, towards the end it falters from time to time, but not too often; sound is good.

1993-07-07 Rome, Italy 2 (with DVD)

At Stadio Flaminio Pearl Jam opened up for U2 show. Those who came early before U2 to see the Pearl Jam, seem to be really enjoying with Eddie and his friends. After Even Flow the band played a sort of U2-styled improv. After the end of last song Ed said: "The fly says good-bye", took on Bono's big "Fly" mask and left the stage.

This is an audience video, picture quality is average.
UPDATED (2012-11-23): replaced video, no faltering, DVD added.

1993-07-03 Verona, Italy 2 (with DVD)

In Verona Pearl Jam was the support act for U2 ZooTV show. Though the arena was half empty and those who came early were clearly just waiting for Bono, Eddie had managed to warm up enough people to provide him a "good sea" and performed two spectacular dives into "it" during Porch jam.

This is an audience video, picture quality is low.

1992-04-12 Limelight, New York City, NY (with DVD)

Very hot and passionate show in a small club. NYC crowd was great as ever, it was something like a future Madison Square Garden concert, but of the tiny size. Ed performed his usual stage dive during the "Porch" jam. During "I've Got A Feeling" Ed dragged a guy from the audience onto the stage to sing with him and after a while this guy jumped and dived back into the packed crowd. This show was closed in very unusual and maybe odd or special way - with "Release".

This is an audience video, shot from Mike's side, picture quality average. Thumbnails picture is taken from wmv video, DVD video contains 2 video streams.
UPDATED (2012-11-24): added 2-angle DVD video (center camera and Mike's side camera), new .wmv video is one-angle, now deinterlaced, longer, with more footage from pauses and encore break.

Set: Oceans, Even Flow, Why Go, Jeremy, (Suggestion) Deep, Alive, Black, State Of Love And Trust, (I'm Not Crazy) Once, Porch, Leash, Rockin' In The Free World, I've Got A Feeling, Release

1991-09-30 I-Beam, San Francisco, CA

One of the earlier shows. During "Jeremy" Ed had performed some sort of unsuccessful stage dive and collapsed on to the floor, so he had to be taken out with the help of the crew. Maybe this is why for the "Porch" jam he  scrambled to the ramp above the stage and sang the rest of the song from there.

1992-03-04 Tivoli, Utrecht, Netherlands (with DVD)

Very interesting concert in a small club before dense hot crowd. There was so much stage diving that Ed had to say: "These heads you see up here, they are human." Ed himself did not participate, for he had new tattoo and didn't mean to hurt more his sore leg. During "Sympathy For The Devil" jam he poured water on overheated audience. After Porch jam Mike and Jeff smashed their guitars and, while the band was for the encore break, crowd chanted: "We want more!" And when the band returned, Ed played a sort of another jam at the drum kit instead of Dave A. He did it before "Alone" and after "Leash" he sang half of "Hunger Strike" a-capella.
Grand finale for this memorable concert was an instrumental jam and something like a discoteque on the stage, parodying then popular vogue dance from Madonna's video clip. People from the audience came up to the stage, danced and then dived back, giving room to other dancers. Great show.

This an audience video of the full show. Audio is soundboard (2 streams for DVD version). Video on DVD is stretched, in wmv is ok. DVD includes extras from the soundcheck.

1992-06-26 Roskilde Festival, Denmark

Roskilde had always been unlucky place for Pearl Jam. They were totally exhausted after many dedicated shows they played, after fame suddenly coming over them. Like in 2000, Roskilde-92 was a point to stop, the remaining European tour dates for summer of 1992 had been cancelled. And, like in 2000, it was a show of trouble. Initially it was good, before the crowd of 70000 Ed joked how he was wrong thinking that Roskilde was a small club. But then they had lots of security problems, during "Deep" it came to an open fighting between security and the band crew members, and they even had to interrupt the song to rescue crowd surfing Ed and their tour manager. Later performance was great and powerful but the band was so upset and tired that, no surprise, decided to return home.

The first song is an audience record, but the rest of the show is a professional broadcast video. Picture is good, but video stream stumbles all the time, at some points coming to a slide show. I would never post it if it was not so special in the history of the band. Sound is very good quality mono broadcast.
