Pearl Jam played their first show of 2023, kicking off a short tour with a performance on Thursday night at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minn.

The band played the first five songs of the night seated, opening with the Vs. track "Indifference" for the first time in nearly 30 years. They ditched the stools for the next 19 tracks, which included covers of Tom Petty's "Wildflowers" and Victoria Williams' "Crazy Mary" in addition to set list staples such as "Black" and "Yellow Ledbetter."

Videos and a complete set list from the show can be found below.

The gig marked Pearl Jam’s first concert in about a year. The band wrapped their 2022 tour last September in Denver.

Frontman Eddie Vedder has tacked on some additional solo dates in the fall. He will headline day two of the Ohana Festival on Sept. 30 at Southern California’s Doheny State Beach. Foo Fighters, the Pretenders, the Killers and the War on Drugs are among the other artists playing at the three-day event. Vedder is one of the founders of the Ohana festival, which has been held annually since 2016.

Is Pearl Jam Working on New Music?

Pearl Jam have been in the studio with producer Andrew Watt, working on the follow-up to 2020’s Gigaton.

“Andrew is a total character,” guitarist Stone Gossard noted in 2022. “Really, like immediately, we were writing quickly – spontaneously. Bring in a riff. 'Let's knock it out.'”

More recently, Gossard revealed that the new album was “getting closer and closer” to being finished. “It’s gonna be a good one,” he said, adding that Watt is “the most hardcore Pearl Jam fan you’ll ever meet. He can play all of our songs and all of Soundgarden’s songs back at us — better than we can play them!”
