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.

Set: Redemption Song, Even Flow, Why Go, Jeremy, Deep, Alive, Black, State Of Love And Trust, (I'm Not Crazy) Once, Porch
