Good show. Vedder really got old, but he's still phenomenal. Seems a bit more sober, measured on this tour, at least so far. Far from sloppy this time around, which is impressive since they played a lot of songs they don't play a lot.

Strong first set -- I was really happy to hear Cropduster, that's a PJ mid-career favorite of mine that you don't hear very often. Given To Fly, Do The Evolution, Mind Your Manners was a pretty heated sequence early in the show. The last triplet of the first set -- State, Lightning Bolt (my favorite of the new album), and Porch -- was pretty great as well.

Of the later sets, it was a huge treat to get Other Side. Didn't realize it at the time but that was a second-time-ever performance (first time in 2010). I thought Gone was possibly the best performance of the night, rivaled perhaps only by Rearviewmirror and Baba O'Riley. Normally, Baba would have been the low point of the last set for me, but something about the mood I was in last night or this particular performance really resonated with me.

If you like PJ as much as I do, and they throw 2:40+ of music at you, there's a good chance you'll be walking away happy. I've seen better shows, and it's a bit unnerving that they (and I) are noticably so much older than they used to be, but last night I was very happy.

I thought it was a big effort on my part hauling my old ass all the way to Worcester, but the MVP award clearly has to go to old man MCG!
