Pearl Jam Spectrum Bootleg

   For Philadelphians, the Spectrum served as the absolute place for arena shows from 1967-2009. The arena hosted acts ranging from The Who, Billy Joel, Elton John, Elvis Presley, Led Zeppelin, Cream, The Doors, Foo Fighters, Bob Marley, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street band, David Bowie, the Grateful Dead to name a few. It was the arena that inspired Roger Water to write Pink Floyd’s “Comfortably Numb.”
    To close out the legendary arena, Pearl Jam played a four-night stand as that Philadelphia Phillies and New York Yankees played a World Series across the street. The run concluded in an epic 41-song, 3 ½ hour show on October 31st, 2009. While the band had only released audio of the show (as they do for all of their concerts), they have yet to release an official DVD. Thanks to someone’s time consuming work it is now all available through youtube through pieced together recordings. Enjoy:
