Episode 111: Mural Amphitheater - 8/23/91

Happy New Year everyone! In 2020 we had a running feature series where we focused on different Pearl Jam shows around the world, but since this is the 30th anniversary of the band we've decided to pay homage to their hometown of Seattle, WA. Every month we'll dig into a different show from their catalog in chronological order performed in Seattle. This week we kick it off with potentially one of the most important shows from their inaugural year played at Mural Amphitheater in 1991. This show is notable for so many things. It's their final show they played before the official release of Ten, it's the first show that drummer Dave Abbrusezze joined up with them and it's the first performance in an outdoor venue. In this episode we'll talk a little bit about this time period and has the turbulence of going through two drummer changes within a 3 month span didn't seem to deter them from going out and playing shows. Although this might've been Dave A's debut, you would've never been able to tell by the way the band presented themselves. It's a Ten era show and maybe the unofficial kickoff of the Ten era, but it felt like the band was destined for bigger things at this point. Getting their own spotlight on a stage right in front of the Space Needle was exactly what they needed in order to grow and evolve into the superstardom that would develop in the following year.
