See Pearl Jam Debut ‘Dark Matter’ Songs at Tour Kickoff in Vancouver


Eddie Vedder and company perform nine of the 11 songs from their latest LP, plus covers of tracks by Neil Young, Tom Petty, and Mother Love Bone

Pearl Jam kicked off their world tour in support of Dark Matter Saturday in Vancouver, where the band delivered the live debuts of the majority of their new album’s songs.

Of the 11 tracks on Dark Matter, Eddie Vedder and company performed nine of them — only “Waiting for Stevie” and “Got to Give” were omitted — at the Rogers Arena, seven of which were played live for the first time; “Running” and “Scared to Fear” were previously given live debuts during an appearance on Howard Stern last month.

Among the debuts were the title track, the single “Wreckage,” “Won’t Tell,” and Dark Matter’s closing track “Setting Sun,” which also was the final song Pearl Jam performed at their Vancouver show Saturday.

Pearl Jam’s set also featured covers of Tom Petty’s “I Won’t Back Down,” Mother Love Bone’s “Chloe Dancer/Crown of Thorns,” and Neil Young’s “Rockin’ in the Free World,” hits like “Alive,” “Corduroy,” and “Daughter,” and the band’s first performance of the Yield-era B-side “Leatherman” since 2016.


Pearl Jam’s tour continues Monday in Vancouver, after which the band will travel to Portland, Sacramento, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles before headlining Napa Valley’s BottleRock Festival on May 25 and playing a pair of hometown Seattle shows that week. 

Following a European leg, the North American dates will pick back up in August with stops at Chicago’s Wrigley Field, New York’s Madison Square Garden, and Boston’s Fenway Park.
