Episode 56: Madison Square Garden Night 1 - 5/1/16

We're coming down to the wire as our 2019 yearly series featuring MSG shows has only two episodes remaining! In this episode we'll discuss Night 1 of 2016, a show that came with a lot of hype and anticipation off the heels of "Tenadelphia" surely you would think the band would bring their best set to the World's Most Famous Arena. With both Randy and Buckley in attendance this night, they have very different perspectives of this show. Randy will talk about the disappointment in being a serious collector and not getting anything new for the first time seeing the band live. The overall discussion in this episode is although this was a very solid set, did it really have that MSG magic that shows in 98, 03 and 2010 all had? The album intro to Go is a great discussion, Release in the middle of the set, a unique rendition of Future Days and a random Doobie Brothers cover will dominate conversation, but this wasn't anywhere near the type of set that Philly or Greenville received earlier that tour. We have a new Patreon episode available featuring the live evolution of Corduroy, all you have to do is head over and subscribe to get access to this and all of our exclusive content. For becoming a patron, you'll also get an opportunity to join the podcast and talk about your favorite Pearl Jam show of all time!
