OMG, something awesome to bring us out of our slumber. Here’s a video of Mike McCready doing a sweet version of Eddie Van Halen’s Eruption. The rendition isn’t too shabby for a live performance on a rainy, rainy night.

This solo was shredded out at Wrigley Field, Chicago on July 19, 2013 as Pearl Jam began a new tour to promote their newest album, LightningBolt.

At the gig PJ debuted two new songs to the world. The first was the title track from the album, the second being the slow but sure Future Days which featured album producer Brendon O’Brien playing along on keys. I’m picking the later will become a fan favourite in no time at all.

Here's the set list from that night:

Set One:

Present Tense
Hold On
Low Light
Come Back
Elderly Woman Behind the Counter in a Small Town

Rain delays led to a second set that was shorter than intended:

Set Two:
All The Way (Eddie Vedder song) (with Ernie Banks)
All Night
Do the Evolution
Setting Forth (Eddie Vedder solo song)
Mind Your Manners
Lightning Bolt (debut performance)
Even Flow
Eruption (Van Halen cover)
Why Go?

PJ Set Encore:

Future Days (with Brendan O'Brien playing keyboard)
Mother (Pink Floyd cover from the Wall album)
Chloe Dancer/Crown of Thorns (Mother Love Bone cover)
Wasted Reprise
Life Wasted

Rockin' in the Free World (Neil Young cover)
