Pearl Jam - Reading 27/08


15 sept. 2006, 15h07m

Went to the Reading Festival on the Sunday and saw;

  • Goldie Looking Chain - very funny. Crowd went wild. If I knew any of the words it would have helped but most entertaining.

  • Slayer - GGGRRRRRGRRRRRRG!!!!!!! Ticked off the list.

  • Placebo - very good. Excellent cover of Running Up That Hill. Brian's a grumpy old git though - no banter, not even after an unexplained halt in proceedings half way through. Still, even Alison liked them and she hates his whiny voice.

  • Pearl Jam - 10/10. Played an awesome 2 hour set. First time I've seen them (hopefully not the last). Crowd were well up for it. I now understand the point of all of the post-Ten records and am a born-again Pearl Jam fan. And the mp3s were available for download from their website for a nominal charge. Great band!!

    strange, after heineken festival in gdynia (PL) the only things we could say after Placebo was excellent Kate Bush's RUTH cover... only. I did like the show, but nothing else. Next chance in Berlin. What happened in Reading exactly - bad tricks of the equipment?

    An amp blew up, so we got 10-15 minutes of nice young (but not too young) ladies flashing for us while we waited :D Pearl Jam were fucking AMAZING!!! I had to sit through My Chemical Romance for them, but was fucking worth it

    Placebo rocks - even amps aren't indifferent. I saw Pearl Jam in Astoria back in 90's. Smashing! hahaha, to see Placebo, I had to sit through a 'pussy man' pharell williams, that was the most terrible waiting in my looong life. AWFUL! But he must be good in what he does, as the bunch of his fans singing and waving their hands was more or less the size of Cebo fans after.
