I Got to Live My Dream of Seeing Pearl Jam From the Pit of MSG
I had never been to Madison Square Garden before 9-11-22. My first concert at MSG was Pearl Jam, one of my favorite bands, and I scored the ultimate tickets - General Admission Pit. Here's what it's like to be that close.
I've worked in radio now for over 31 years, and there's only been a handful of times where I've been this close to the stage, but we're talking Connecticut and Massachusetts, not The Garden. I've had these tickets for over 2 1/2 years, the concert was originally scheduled for March 30, 2020, and then Covid. Rescheduling it to 9-11-22 just added to our anticipation of a legendary show. It delivered. Pearl Jam delivered a 24-song set that lasted just over 2 hours. I won't bore you with the setlist, but it was the best concert that my brother and I have ever seen.
