Fergus Breen, Seeking His Face
Last night was pretty amazing and particularly rockin’. Only real let up in the first set from the second tune on was Nothingman, apart from that they pretty much tore it up.

Elaine Kirwin, Rarities, B-Sides and Other Stuff
“Seattle Sound rockers Pearl Jam have been touring for almost 20 years now, but they showed no signs of a slowing place last night when they took to the stage at Dublin’s O2 Arena. The first stop on their summer European Tour, the 90s legends played to a sold-out crowd of eager and loyal followers. Anyone lucky enough to score a ticket to last night’s gig would have witnessed, from opening to encore, one incredible and lengthy set that will long be remembered.”

Ronan McGreevy, Irish Times
Pearl Jam are the great survivors of grunge. Not only have they survived, they are still thriving. A full house made for a night of steamy midsummer madness at the O2.

Forrest Covington, State Magazine
Taking the stage just before 9pm, Pearl Jam opened with the raucous ‘Long Road’. They then proceded to drag the crowd by its sweaty balls back and forth along the timeline of their illustrious discography, including tracks from their latest album, Backspacer. The guitars were dirty, the drums were loud, and everything was just right.
