|Lollapalooza 1992 consisted of Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Ministry, Lush, Jesus and Mary Chain, Ice Cube and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. The play order was typically, PJ, Soundgarden and the RHCP finishing.
A number of the band members gathered late at the Terminator in LA for some sort of a "practice" session prior to the tour's launch.
07/18/92 - Shoreline Amphitheater: Mountain View, CA (Lollapalooza) [45m]
set: State of Love and Trust, Why Go, Once, Alive, Even Flow, Jeremy, Deep, Porch
notes: Porno for Pyros shows up as a surprise on the second stage here.
07/19/92 - Shoreline Amphitheater: Mountain View, CA (Lollapalooza) [45m]
set: Even Flow, Why Go, Jeremy, Deep, Alive, Black, Once, Porch
notes: 'Deep' is dedicated to the "photographers who have to leave now." (Professional photographers are typically only allowed to take photos for the first three songs.) Porno for Pyros shows up as a surprise on the second stage here.
07/21/92 - Thunderbird Stadium, UBC: Vancouver, British Columbia (Lollapalooza)
notes: A very intense performance with the highlight during 'Porch' to close the set. Ed climbs the scaffolding to the side of the stage and dives into the crowd and the whole stadium goes crazy!
07/22/92 - 'Jeremy' single is released; 'Jeremy' video directed by Mark Pellington begins MTV circulation
07/22/92 - Kitsap County Fairgrounds: Bremerton, WA (Lollapalooza) [45m]
set: Even Flow, Why Go, Jeremy, Suggestion, Deep, Alive, Black, Once, Porch, Rockin' in the Free World
notes: Ed sings a line from The Beatles' 'Eleanor Rigby' before 'Porch' ("All the lonely people, where do they all belong ...") During Soundgarden's set, Ed joins in singing back-up vocals on 'Outshined' from a mic beside the drumkit.
07/25/92 - Fiddler's Green: Denver, CO (Lollapalooza)
set: Even Flow, Why Go, Alive, Jeremy, State of Love and Trust, Porch, Rockin' in the Free World (setlist incomplete/not in correct order)
notes: PJ is the second band to play - a spirited performance with Ed climbing the scaffolding. He also informs the crowd that they should "smoke pot, but don't do heroin."
07/27/92 - Riverport Amphitheater: Maryland Heights, MO (Lollapalooza)
notes: During 'Porch,' Ed climbs the scaffolding up the side of the stage to the top and then crawls to the middle of the stage and then continues to crawl out towards the crowd on a beam all the way to the lawn section!! The crowd is going wild, fearful that he would fall as the beam was very narrow. He returns to the stage, shirtless. They finish the song and Ed mentions, "See you at 6 with Jim Rose ... after Soundgarden." PJ was banned from playing at Riverport for a time after this.
07/28/92 - Riverbend Music Center: Cincinnati, OH (Lollapalooza)
set: Why Go, Deep, Jeremy, Even Flow, Garden, Alive, Leash, Porch
07/29/92 - Blossom Music Center: Cleveland, OH (Lollapalooza)
set: Summertime Rolls/Why Go, Deep, Jeremy, Even Flow, Garden, Alive, Improv, Porch
notes: About two songs into PJ's set, it begins pouring down rain, but the crowd remains very intent on listening to the show. The downpour turns most of the lawn into mudslides. Vedder and Cornell were spotted out on the lawn sliding together after the Soundgarden set and "teeing off" with fans using a golf club and plastic golf balls!
07/31/92 - Pine Knob Music Theatre: Clarkston, MI (Lollapalooza)
08/01/92 - Pine Knob Music Theatre: Clarkston, MI (Lollapalooza)
08/02/92 - On the Edge FM Intv. [20m]
set: Why Go, Even Flow, Garden, Alive
08/02/92 - World Music Amphitheater: Tinley Park, IL (Lollapalooza) [43m]
set: Summertime Rolls Intro/Why Go, Deep, Jeremy, Even Flow, Alive, Black, Once, Porch
08/04/92 - Saratoga Performing Arts Center: Saratoga, NY (Lollapalooza) [45m]
set: Once, Even Flow, Why Go, Jeremy, Deep, Sympathy for the Devil snippet/Love the People improv, Black, Alive, Porch
notes: Not even the second song into the set, fans from the lawn rush the barrier and take over the amphitheater, likely due to the downpour that starts when PJ takes the stage. People are attempting to mudslide on the lawn (or wet grass). After 'Even Flow,' Ed says, "Fuck all those big cities." He talks about wanting people to be safe: "Look out for your neighbor. You can have the responsibility." Ed makes a reference that they didn't get enough attention at home as kids and then they play 'Black.' Toward the end of the set, a tornado touches down a few miles away and all the stage lights go out, but the amps didn't. Ed says, "There goes the lights ... there goes the lights" and the band goes into an immediate extended jam. A snippet of 'Sympathy For the Devil' is played after 'Deep.' 'Alive' is awesome, with an extended ending with a cool "hey, hey" jam. After 'Alive,' Ed notes that "now you know what it's like to live in Seattle ... It's an amazing day. It's gonna take a lot out of you. Take the day off tomorrow. You need some sleep."
Note: There is a tape circulating as this show but it is actually an FM broadcast of the 6/6/92 FM broadcast.
08/05/92 - Molson Park: Barrie, Ontario (Lollapalooza) [45m]
set: (slow song), Even Flow, Jeremy, Alive, Black, Porch (setlist incomplete)
notes: This show was filmed (at least partially) by Much Music. Footage includes interviews with PJ members (mostly Ed; he's asked if he is a big basketball fan and he responds no ... "only about 5 feet 7 inches" ;)), them playing basketball and part of the show itself. 'Garden' was also played; during this song, the band stops playing as there is too much pushing at the front of the stage. Ed says something about watching out for others. "A song ain't nothin' compared to a human life." Chris Cornell sings backing vocals on 'Jeremy' from the back of the stage, but there are so many people there that most aren't aware he's singing. During 'Porch,' Ed scales the scaffolding and dives into the crowd.
08/07/92 - Great Woods Center: Boston, MA (Lollapalooza) [45m]
set: Why Go, Deep, Jeremy, Even Flow, Garden, Hard To Imagine (ramblings)/Alive, Leash, Porch
08/08/92 - Great Woods Center: Boston, MA (Lollapalooza) [60m]
set: Even Flow, Why Go, Deep, Jeremy, Alive, (Sweet Emotion), Black, Once, Porch
08/09/92 - Jones Beach Amphitheater: Wantaugh, NY (Lollapalooza) [55m]
set: Summertime Rolls, Why Go, Deep, Jeremy, Even Flow, Garden, Alive, Porch
08/11/92 - Jones Beach Amphitheater: Wantaugh, NY (Lollapalooza) (canceled)
08/12/92 - Waterloo Village: Stanhope, NJ (Lollapalooza) [40m]
set: Even Flow, Why Go, Deep, Jeremy, Alive, State of Love and Trust, Porch, Rockin' in the Free World
08/14/92 - Lake Fairfax Park: Reston, VA (Lollapalooza) [40m]
set: Once, Why Go, Jeremy, Hunger Strike, Breath, Even Flow, (Sweet Emotion)/Alive, Porch/(We Want Control of Our Bodies)
notes: Chris Cornell initially is on stage, as if to substitute for Ed, who is apparently not there. Cornell asks the crowd for help: "I don't know the lyrics to any of these songs." Ed finally arrives, spraying the crowd with water before launching into 'Once.' Later, Ed says, "We're gonna play a Temple song for ya," and Cornell joins PJ in 'Hunger Strike' (with Matt Cameron drumming, we think?). 'Alive' is wild, with Soundgarden's Ben Shepard joining on stage, bass slung low as he jumps around with the rest of the band. At the end of 'Porch,' Stone uncharacteristically bashes the hell out of his guitar, then launches it into the hands of a crew member.
08/15/92 - Montage Mountain Performing Arts Center: Scranton, PA (originally listed as Lake Compounce: Bristol, CT) (Lollapalooza) [45m]
set: Why Go, Deep, Jeremy, Breath, Even Flow, Alive, Porch/Improv (Sometimes Happens All the Time)/(Tearing)/(We Want Control of Our Bodies), Rockin' in the Free World
notes: This venue is actually a ski slope with a stage placed at the bottom. Chris Cornell keeps popping his head out from side stage but never sings with PJ. 'Tearing,' a Rollins Band song, becomes a standard cover/rambling that follows or co-mingles with 'Porch' during many '92 and '93 shows. Pit was muddy as hell.
08/16/92 - Star Lake Amphitheater: Pittsburgh, PA (Lollapalooza) [45m]
set: Even Flow, Why Go, Deep/Improv (I Want to Feel Free Today)/Jeremy, Hard to Imagine (teaser)/Alive, Once, Porch (What's the Use)/(Tearing), Baba O'Riley, Rockin' in the Free World
08/18/92 - Walnut Creek Amphitheater: Raleigh, NC (Lollapalooza)
08/20/92 - Lakewood Amphitheater: Atlanta, GA (Lollapalooza) [45m]
set: Why Go, Deep, Jeremy, Even Flow, Alive, Hard to Imagine (teaser), Porch, Baba O'Riley, Rockin' in the Free World
notes: Ed comments about 'Baba O'Riley:' "We saw a picture of these guys [The Who] backstage. I guess they must have played here, but it inspired us to play this song ... even though we don't know how." (Actually, The Who were the first band to play at Lakewood Amphitheater when it opened in 1989.) The band, Follow For Now, joins PJ for "RitFW" ... sort of an odd coincidence as Follow For Now (an Atlanta band) was originally scheduled to open for PJ at the cancelled April 92 show in Atlanta.
08/22/92- Bicentennial Park Grounds: Miami, FL (Lollapalooza) [50m]
set: Even Flow, Why Go, Deep, Jeremy, Suggestion/Alive, Garden, Porch, Rockin' in the Free World
notes: Ed warns after 'Even Flow': "I just want to tell all the photographers, you look like really nice people and those look like really nice cameras. You're standing pretty close and I can't keep control of myself, not with this many people here." Later he leads the crowd in a rousing chorus of "fuck." After Jeremy, "You guys need water ... Let's get these hose fucking going. If I need water they need water." During 'Porch,' Ed gives a little speech: "I'll be honest with you, if the Republicans win the election, I'm fuckin' moving from the United States and never coming back. I just don't think you're that stupid. I think they think you're stupid. I think that's stupid." Al Jourgensen from Ministry joins PJ for part of 'RITFW.' Another good Lolla show.
08/23/92 - Central Florida Fairgrounds: Orlando, FL (Lollapalooza) [45m]
set: Why Go, Deep, Jeremy, Even Flow, Black, Alive, Porch/(Tearing), Baba O'Riley
notes: Classic PJ show with Ed shouting, "Bring on the hurricane ... we're ready." (The winds are very high with Hurricane Andrew approaching.) He dedicates 'Deep' to himself and later points out that Domino's Pizza supports Operation Rescue and has a Lolla booth, exciting the crowd by yelling, "I just wanna give Domino's Pizza the big fucking finger ... fuck off!" During Baba O'Riley, Ed climbs atop Chris Cornell's shoulders for the final chorus.
08/24/92 - The Edge: Orlando, FL (Lollapalooza)
08/25/92 - Blockbuster Pavilion: Charlotte, NC (Lollapalooza)
set: Even Flow, Why Go, Suggestion/Deep, Jeremy, Once, (Little Wing riffs), Alive, (Tearing/Silence/Grip/Fuck the Police jam), Black/(If I Can't Have You)/(Take Control), Porch, Rockin' in the Free World
notes: 'If I Can't Have You' is a Bee Gees tune from the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack. During the improvs at the end of 'Black,' the music is 'Hard to Imagine.'
08/28/92 - Harriet Island: St. Paul, MN (Lollapalooza) [45m]
set: Why Go, Deep, Jeremy, Breath, Even Flow, Alive, Porch/(Tearing), Rockin' in the Free World
notes: Ed begins, "Ladies and gentlemen, my new escort and friend, Al Jourgenson. Why go home? Cause we're in fuckin' Minneapolis - get us outta here." During the 'Deep' break, Ed tries to calm the crowd: "Pick him up, help him over, get him up. Everybody, right down here. Just make sure that everybody gets up. I'm countin heads, I'm countin heads. Slow down, is everybody up? There's still one more. Come on, right behind you. White flags surrender! Everybody get up. All right. On the edge ..." and finishes the song. During 'Jeremy,' Chris Cornell sings backup on the "spoke in" part. "Say thanks to Chris Cornell for singing along. Thank you for singin along, too. (Stone noodles 'Breath'). I'm making all these movements like a puppet just 'cause I think it's probably the only way that anybody back there can even see if there's anyubody on stage. Hel-LO! Just want you to know that we can see you. This song, I don't know if you've heard it, it's called 'Breath'." After 'Even Flow,' Stone plays some 'Hard to Imagine' riffs while Ed talks over it. "I remember the last time we were here in Minneapolis, and we played a place called First Avenue, you know where it is. (crowd cheers) That's about right, everybody in the front that's who would've been there. Just all you guys right in the front. But, I remember it was about midnight, maybe ten after. And all we wanted was a pack of cigarettes and we were back at the hotel. And we called the front desk, we said "Can you tell us where there's a cigarette machine? You know, is there a cigarette machine?". And he said "Why, yes sir, there is a cigarette machine but we lock it up after midnight." (crowd laughs). You couldn't even smoke cigarettes?!?! Like, I'm gonna smoke three cigarettes and go out and kill somebody?!?! (Crowd laughs) So I don't know what the fuck is wrong with Minneapolis. And I started wondering about you guys. Are you guys OK? (Crowd screams) Are they letting you ... live? Cause if there not, kill em, fuck em, or get the fuck out, I don't know." At the end of 'Alive,' Mike and Stone smash their guitars with Ed watching and shaking his head, smiling. 'Porch' includes a bit of 'Tearing': "It's hard to be real ... With the ones who ain't real... They continually blow my mind." Then Ed tells the crowd that if anyone wants to run away from Minnesota, they can ride on their bus and that he thinks "a lot of you need to be rescued. How about everybody on Ministry's bus?" 'Porch' ends and the bass drum continues into 'RITFW.' "Thanks very much for coming. Have an amazing day. Take care of one another. Thanks all!" Later in the evening, Mike joins Ministry for 'So What' from The Mind is a Terrible Thing to Taste. Ed and Flea (RHCP) also joined Ministry. A portion of the proceeds from this show benefitted the Homeless Coalition.
08/29/92 - Alpine Valley: East Troy, WI (Lollapalooza) [50m]
set: Why Go, Deep, Jeremy, Even Flow, Black, Hard To Imagine (teaser)/Improv/Alive, Porch/(Tearing), Baba O'Riley
notes: On the third stage (where an industrial noise band named "Sharkbait" played during the Lolla tour), PJ band members got together with Soundgarden band members and did a little singing ('Hunger Strike'-Ed & Chris, 'Throw Your Arms Around Me'-Ed solo, 'Seasons'-Chris solo. This happened during Ice Cube's set (3:30-4:30) and there were 1-2,000 people in attendance. Someone reported that this also happened at the Phoenix show.
09/01/92 - Lakewood Amphitheater: Atlanta, GA (Lollapalooza)
09/04/92 - UNO Soccer Field: New Orleans, LA (Lollapalooza)
setlist: Why Go, Even Flow, Jeremy, Deep, Alive, Porch, Garden, Baba O'Riley
09/05/92 - Fort Bend County Fairgrounds (Rosenberg): Houston, TX (Lollapalooza)
notes: Doug Pinnick of King's X, Chris Cornell and Ministry's Al Jourgensen help out on 'RitFW.'
09/06/92 - Starplex Amphitheater: Dallas, TX (Lollapalooza)
notes: 'Sonic Reducer' most likely premiered at this show.
09/07/92 - rehearsal for MTV VMA appearance
09/08/92 - Desert Sky Pavilion: Phoenix, AZ (Lollapalooza) [45m]
set: Sonic Reducer, Even Flow, Why Go, Deep, Jeremy, Improv (Some People)/Alive, Black, Porch/(Tearing), Baba O'Riley
notes: Ed starts the show off with a snippet of Porno for Pyro's, then clears his throat and the band slams into 'Sonic Reducer' an unusual opener. Before 'Even Flow' Ed says, "That's right you can't be drinking until 7:00; I hope you voted instead." Before 'Why Go' Ed says "You're starting to get it now, you're actually having a good time. You've got to settle security and shit to start expressing yourselves." 'Deep' is dedicated to security. The improv/jam before 'Alive' sounds like "Hard to Imagine" with a faster tempo with Ed saying, "This is all for the fucked up adults who don't think you guys can handle yourself in the crowd." After 'Porch': "I just want to say that you guys turned what could have been a boring bullshit situation into a beautiful thing up front. You all are taking care of one another and that doesn't happen everywhere. Keep it up, alright? It's a long day." During Ice Cube's set, a very loud version of 'Hunger Strike' is heard coming from the parking lot. Actually, it is coming from the Lollapalooza side stage, where Ed and Chris Cornell are jamming to a very lucky (but steadily growing) crowd! They play 'Hunger Strike,' 'Seasons,' 'Throw Your Arms Around Me' and a new song by Chris Cornell (off the forthcoming Soundgarden LP; possibly 'Like Suicide') and a few others. Ed gets mobbed by fans as he walks off the stage towards the side gate without any security. Incredible! (Did anyone tape this or see it? Please write us.)
09/09/92 - Pauley Pavilion, UCLA: Westwood, CA, MTV Video Music Awards [5m]
notes: Intense performance. Lyrics mumbled at the song's end by Ed hint that PJ wanted to perform 'Sonic Reducer,' an old punk song by the Dead Boys, rather than 'Jeremy' ("I don't need no ... I don't need no mom and dad.")
9/10/92 - "MTV's 'Singles' Scene," Park Plaza Hotel Ballroom: Los Angeles, CA [15m]
set: State of Love and Trust, Baba O'Riley, Rockin' in the Free World
notes: This event was a premiere party for the movie, Singles and was actually broadcast 9/18. Eddie intentionally fucks up 'SoL&T' so it won't be a hit by using four letter words throughout the song. (Brendan O'Brien doctored the aired version splicing in the studio cut.) Baba O'Riley is dedicated to Cameron Crowe (" ... cuz he's got good taste in music"). Ben Shepherd, Chris Cornell, Jerry Cantrell, and Al Jourgensen help out on 'RitFW' which ends with Mike atop Chris Cornell's shoulders. A rather rowdy performance, including Ed stage diving during each song and tearing the side stage curtains down at one point.
09/11/92 - Irvine Meadows: Irvine, CA (Lollapalooza)
09/12/92 - Irvine Meadows: Irvine, CA (Lollapalooza) [43m]
set: Even Flow, Why Go, Deep, Jeremy, Breath, Sonic Reducer, Hard To Imagine (ramblings), Alive, Porch, Rockin' in the Free World
notes: This next to the last Lollapalooza show starts in a fury with a fast paced 'Even Flow.' Dave's drumming is especially thunderous and Ed is in a crazy mood. After 'Why Go,' Ed remarks "Ain't no need to go nowhere if you are here ... only the strong survive ... Let's say about two years ago you're about ready to kill yourself ... maybe its two weeks ago....maybe it was yesterday, but aren't you glad you didn't when you get a day like this?" A very rushed Jeremy takes a lot out of Ed and afterwards he says, "anybody know one of our songs ... you wanna sing it for me ... this guy right here, all right. He knows the chords to 'Breath and a Scream.' You want him to play it?" Apparently a guy from the crowd joins the band on stage and you can hear him help Ed out with some of the lyrics. 'Breath' ends abruptly and Ed says "I've been in love with losers all of my life ... hoping someday someone will love a loser like me, like Stone. Stone you're not much of a loser, you're a handsome guy." Ed introduces 'Sonic Reducer' as "a song Jeremy would like," and dedicates it to two pits in the crowd. Mike's guitar noodling eventually turns into 'Hard to Imagine.' During the noodling, Ed sings an improv: "Children our way someday ... teenagers fucked up in the head ... some things I hear everyday people don't need to say. Oh, it's hard to feel different ... Don't want a future ... give it away." Afterwards Ed says, "I can't believe this is it ... only one more day. I predict every band that is going to play here today is going to kick ass cause they know it's ending." This leads into a great version of 'Porch.' Afterwards Ed asks, "Did anybody see Rage Against the Machine on the small stage before we went on?" Mike asks, "Did anybody else see Nirvana ... Kurt Cobain on guitar over there?" Ed says, "Kurt Cobain and I made up the other night ... he was right here." 'RitFW' features some alternative crazy lyrics including, "The United States ain't a free place" and "Feels so good to just get it out ... we all need to get it out ... vote and get it out ... drop ACID and get it out." The crowd loves it! Great prelude to the following show which ends an era in Pearl Jam history.
09/13/92 - Irvine Meadows: Irvine, CA (Lollapalooza) [45m]
set: Baba O'Riley, Sonic Reducer, Even Flow, Jeremy, Improv/Alive, Porch/(Tearing), Rockin' in the Free World, Hunger Strike, Reach Down
notes: Unusually, 'Baba O'Riley' opens this set. Mike is clad in a plaid skirt. 'Sonic Reducer' is introduced as "... a song about shooting up in the pit." He wisecracks, "So, whattaya think? No Pearl Jam songs today" leading to 'Even Flow.' A few 'Hard to Imagine' riffs are played before 'Alive' with lyrics about "somebody told me ... one night in New Orleans ..." Later Ed says, "You'd all better vote to keep it a fuckin' free world," and "I hate to inform you boys but I've seen quite a few of these and this ain't no pit." He asks, "Is there anybody else left back there to play? Oh, there's someone" and Chris Cornell joins PJ for 'Hunger Strike' and 'Reach Down.' Matt Cameron replaced Dave on drums. This is the only (in addition to the 8/14/92 Lake Fairfax show perhaps), impromptu Temple of the Dog reunion with all members of both PJ and Soundgarden present.

09/18/92 - Cameron Crowe's Singles movie is released
09/20/92 - Warren G. Magnuson Park: Seattle, WA (Free Festival) [70m]
attendance: 29,000 free tickets distributed
support acts: Pete Droge, Lazy Susan, Cypress Hill, Shawn Smith, Seaweed, Jim Rose
set: Even Flow, Once, State of Love and Trust, (Angie riffs) Why Go, Deep, Jeremy, Black, Alive, Garden, (Walkaway)/Porch/(Tearing), Sonic Reducer, Rockin' in the Free World
notes: This concert ("A Drop in the Park") was the rescheduled date for the originally planned May 20 Gas Works Park free show. Despite some traffic difficulties, the show went rather well. Reportedly, this effort for Rock the Vote inspired approximately 3,000 young people to register to vote. Ed comments, "If you don't vote, you can't complain about the outcome." This show probably cost PJ $100,000 of their own money to sponsor. Ed tosses the mic high above, it catches over the scaffolding, he climbs up a pole--hanging for a bit--and then slides down the cord. Ed notes early in the show, "This is like the OK Hotel times one million." Ministry's drummer and Bruce Fairweather (Mother Love Bone) join PJ in 'RitFW.' At the show's close, Ed exclaims, "I can't believe we did it! You did it!" smiling
09/25/92 - BBC: England (intv. with Ed) [20m]
09/25/92 - Andrew's Amphitheater: Honolulu, Hawaii
notes: The two Honolulu shows were part of a concert fest organized by KNAC, a LA radio station.
09/26/92 - Andrew's Amphitheater: Honolulu, Hawaii
set: Release, Why Go, Deep, Jeremy, Breath, Even Flow, Improv, State Of Love And Trust, Black, Improv/Jam (based on Hard To Imagine), Alive, Porch
enc: Improv/Jam, Sonic Reducer, Rockin' In The Free World
notes: After a nice 'Release' opening, Ed says, "We're in a beautiful place. Why go home?" leading to guess what song? After a few opening licks of 'Breath' are played, the song is announced as 'A Breath and a Scream,' as it frequently was called then. Later Ed asks, "Did we meet some of you guys last night? Cause the tickets were good for both nights, right? That's how I wanted it to work out." After repeating, "I'm not crazy, I'm not crazy," they launch into 'Even Flow.' A few 'Hard To Imagine' riff are played after 'SOLAT,' and an improv based on 'Hard To Imagine' follows 'Black.' Ed tells the crowd, "You're all gonna die some day; you're all gonna die fat and old ... it's true," leading to 'Alive,' followed by some guitar noodling. Ed compliments the "pit" likening it to a "Norelco razor" with the three spinning heads. The second set opens with a jam with lyrics based loosely on 'Throw Your Arms Around Me.' Ed thanks everyone who they've met and says it makes them want to move there and "I wanna have your baby." After 'TITFW,' Ed says goodbye and then asks the lights to be turned back up: "I wanna get a picture of these guys."
09/27/92 - War Memorial Gymnasium: Maui, Hawaii
soundcheck: Jeremy, Little Wing, Breath
set: Release, Why Go, Deep, Jeremy, Breath, Even Flow, State of Love and Trust, Black, Alive, Porch
encore: I've Got a Feeling
notes: Final show of the Ten tour. Setlist taken from handwritten setlist; encore from memory.
10/16/92 - Madison Square Garden: New York, NY (Bob Dylan Tribute) [5m]
set: Masters of War
notes: Various musicians appeared at this 30th anniversary tribute to Bob Dylan, including Eric Clapton, George Harrison, Jeff Lynne, Sinead O'Connor, Tom Petty, Robbie Robertson and Neil Young. Ed sings 'Masters of War,' accompanied by Mike and Saturday Night Live guitarist, G.E. Smith. This performance, televised on pay-per-view cable, was felt by many in attendance to be the highlight this night.
11/01/92 - Shoreline Amphitheatre: Mountain View, CA (Bridge School Benefit) (acoustic) [35m]
set: Footsteps, Jeremy, Black, Alive, Daughter, Angel, I Am a Patriot
notes: This benefit for the Bridge School, a program for communicative and educational development of severely physically challenged non-speaking children, also featured Neil Young, Elton John, James Taylor, Shawn Colvin and Sammy Hagar. PJ plays revised versions of 'Jeremy' and 'Black,' premiers 'Daughter' and performs Steven Van Zandt's 'I Am a Patriot.' 'Angel' is particularly sweet and has only been played live once before.
12/31/92 - The Academy: New York, NY [55m]
supporting: Keith Richards and The X-pensive Winos
set: Wash, Sonic Reducer, Why Go, Even Flow, Alone, Garden, Daughter, Dirty Frank, Oceans, Alive, Leash, Stranglehold jam/Porch
notes: Unusual fast version of 'Wash.' A short clip of 'Sonic Reducer' was broadcast on CBS's New Year's Eve broadcast. (One of the cameramen almost does an unintentional stagedive, camera and all.) Ed thanks Keith Richards, saying, "If it weren't for Keith, Mike McCready wouldn't even be here." The rare 'Dirty Frank' had not been played previously live in its entirety. 'Stranglehold' is a Ted Nugent song. Mike remarks after this jam, "They forced me to play it. I think Ted Nugent is a stupid idiot." Somewhat reluctantly, Ed and Mike join Keith for his encore song, 'Goin' Down.'
[For those interested, the full Winos setlist: Take it So Hard, Eileen, Wicked as it Seems, Gimme Shelter, Too Rude, Yap Yap, How I Wish, 999, Big Enough, Demon, Time is On My Side, Hate it When You Leave, I Could Have Stood You Up, Before They make Me Run, Bodytalks, Will But You Won't, Happy, Whip It Up, Goin' Down (with PJ members and Robert Cray).]
