Pearl Jam Debut Two New Songs During Epic Show at Chicago’s Wrigley Field
What looked like a lost night turned out to be one to remember for Pearl Jam fans who attended the band’s show last night (July 19) at Chicago’s famed Wrigley Field. Seven songs into the set, torrential rain and lightning forced a nearly three-hour delay, but the band eventually returned to the stage to deliver an epic show that included two brand-new tunes.
With Pearl Jam recently announcing the release of their new album, ‘Lightning Bolt’ on Oct. 15, the band debuted the disc’s title track during the Chicago show last night. The song is a rocking tune with a classic Pearl Jam vibe to it, including an impressive solo from guitarist Mike McCready. Check out fan-filmed footage of the song above.
Later in the night, Pearl Jam premiered the new ballad ‘Future Days’ with help from producer Brendan O’Brien on keyboards. You can watch that performance in the video below.
Overall, the band played an incredible 33-song set that went well after midnight because of the weather delay. You can catch Pearl Jam this fall when they embark on a North American trek in support of ‘Lightning Bolt.’ Click below for the full list of dates:
