Finally back in Buffalo after seven years, the boys just keep getting it done, even with an early end to the show thanks to the 11pm curfew (something they openly flaunted and paid the fine for their last go-round here in 2003). As I said in my Cleveland post, I’ve got nothing left to say in the way of praise for Pearl Jam, so I’ll let the vids and pictures speak for themselves. Suffice to say it was a tremendous show, and it warmed the cockles of my heart to hear talk radio personalities on different stations and of different ages all espousing their similar feelings the next day. Don’t be gone another seven years, guys.
