Pearl Jam Delivers Monumental, Three-Encore Performance At Wrigley Field

first_imgEdit this setlist | More Pearl Jam setlists Beloved rock and rollers Pearl Jam hit the field of the historic Wrigley Field baseball stadium in Chicago, IL for the first time since 2013, celebrating their 25th anniversary with an incredible performance. There’s no love lost between Wrigley and Eddie Vedder, as the Pearl Jam frontman has been known to make an appearance at the Chicago baseball stadium to sing “Take Me Out To The Ballgame” or throw out a ceremonial first pitch. Last night, however, he was there to entertain, and led PJ through a 34-song, three-encore performance for the ages.Walking out to The Who’s “Baba O’Riley,” the band immediately jumped into classics “Low Light” and “Release.” The band busted out The Beatles’ “Rain” for the first time in 2016, before breaking into a series of classic tunes like “Elderly Woman Behind the Counter in a Small Town,” “Do The Evolution” and more. One of the more touching moments of the set came when the band played “Light Years” as a tribute to Gord Downie of The Tragically Hip. Downie was diagnosed with inoperable brain cancer earlier this year, and decided to tour with the Hips one last time. Their final show was played last night as well, in Canada.The remainder of the main set included covers of Bob Dylan’s “Masters Of War” and Little Steven’s “I Am A Patriot,” and concluded with big hits “Jeremy” and “Better Man.” The band then got into more classic music during their first encore, including “Bee Girl” and “Just Breathe” to open. The band would later welcome out Steve Gleason, former NFL player who found inspiration in Pearl Jam’s music while fighting ALS. Gleason was on stage during Pearl Jam’s performance of “Inside Job,” creating quite the emotional moment.The first encore also featured a mini-tribute to Pink Floyd with both “Interstellar Overdrive” and “Comfortably Numb” making appearances. After “Corduroy” and “Porch,” the band returned once more with a quick four-song encore that included hits like “Go,” “Black,” Cheap Trick’s “Surrender,” and “Alive.” With just a few more tricks up their sleeve, Pearl Jam then returned for a third encore, playing “All The Way” and closing out where they’d started, by performing The Who’s “Baba O’Riley.”Check out a few more video highlights and the full setlist from this incredible performance, all below.ReleaseRainSadMasters Of WarI Believe In Miracleslast_img read more

Survey The Damage All Those Shows Have Done To Your Ears With This Free Online Hearing Test

first_imgIf you live for live music, there’s probably a good chance you’ve hit up your fair share of concerts. Studies have shown that there’s a risk for permanent hearing damage after fifteen minutes of exposure to sound over 100 decibels, which is frequently par the course for certain shows. While earplugs have been shown to prevent this damage, certainly, a lot of us are not as good about protecting our ears when we’re out and about as we should be. Luckily, we can not check out the damage (if any) done with this innovative new online hearing test from Audicus, a leader in online hearing aids, one of the first hearing tests that allows you to assess your hearing at home. The test only requires ten minutes, a quiet place, and headphones, and afterward, you can get a better sense of how your ears are doing (and get ahead of any problems as they’re developing). Also, the test is pretty fun to take in addition to giving users some valuable knowledge about your body’s ability to recoup after concerts.It’s well known that musicians protect their ears when they’re onstage, as that sort of sustained exposure to noise can being damaging in the long-term. We saw it recently with ACDC’s Brian Johnson, who was forced to leave tour after doctors advised him that if he continued to perform, he could sustain permanent deafness. Happily, Johnson returned to the stage this past weekend, joining Robert Plant and Paul Rodgers for a song and sounding better than ever. Still, such incidents highlight the need to think about hearing in the long-term and to take action now to protect yourself down the line. Regardless of whether you have perfect hearing or not, wear earplugs to shows, especially at venues or for performances by bands that you know get particularly loud.You can check out the hearing test here, and we’ll see you at the next show!last_img read more

ABA asks summary judgment against NCUA, FOM rule

first_img continue reading » 10SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr The American Bankers Association on Friday filed a request with the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia for summary judgment against the NCUA and the agency’s revised field-of-membership rule, which took effect this February.The ABA argues that the rule is an overreach of the NCUA’s authority under the Federal Credit Union Act and Administrative Procedures Act, calling the rule arbitrary, capricious and an abuse of the agency’s discretion.NCUA filed its own motion this March asking the court to dismiss the suit. The agency now has until late June to file its opposition to the bankers’ claims, and the ABA will have a month to submit its reply. A second round of filings could follow before the court begins to review the arguments fully.last_img read more
