Hot Off The Interwebs: PJ in Manchester

by Kathy Davis on August 17, 2009

We’ve got some if you want it…between the Official Message board and Tweets from PJBugs, Vitalogy.de and PearlJamOnline (the excellent Italian PJ site), the Pearl Jam Manchester show is well-covered!  We’ll post any pertinent Manchester info here, starting with El Setlisto. 

Despite this tweet from show openers Gomez…

PJ are trapped in Berlin on a plane. Ben is trapped at East Midlands airport on a plane. I’m still assuming there’s gonna be a show tonight!

…the show seemed to go on rather well! Re-post from the Message Pit, thanks to post-er Urban Hippie:
