On Tuesday June 12, Pearl Jam kicked off their 2018 summer tour in Amsterdam, Netherlands, at the 17,000 capacity Ziggo Dome. With a setlist 26-songs-strong – thanks in no small part to the edition of two whole encores – the band provided the audience with a tour of their best-loved hits from the band's sprawling back catalogue, from most recent album Lightning Bolt all the way back to their career-defining debut, Ten

Given what we've seen so far (they played at the same venue again the night after), it looks like Pearl Jam are going to mix things up each night, throwing in different covers (they swapped Fuckin' Up for Rockin' In The Free World the following night) and varying running orders, but these things seem pretty nailed on: the bulk of the setlist will come from Ten, they'll include a diverse range of songs from (almost) every album, and you'll be getting at least one encore. 

It's true that no setlist will please all the people all the time, but this one gives it a pretty good go...
