Eddie Vedder Melbourne Bootlegs

Fan-made bootleg recordings have surfaced from Eddie Vedder’s two recent Melbourne solo shows. To say I’m happy about this would be an understatement: the show I went to was so utterly special and magical that it could not possibly be relived through studio recordings, especially seeing as many of the songs Eddie played do not exist in studio form (at least not in the style he played them).

However the one word that sticks with me is ‘majestic’. And last night, The National put on a show at Melbourne’s Palais Theatre that was majestic in every possible sense of the word, and will go down as my favourite gig to date.
