Few bands have the opportunity to release one album in their career - just one album - and then re-issue that album in multiple formats with bonus studio and live tracks 18 years later to critical acclaim.
But if your band is Mad Season, a culmination of Seattle legends and locals like Layne Staley (Alice in Chains), Mike McCready (Pearl Jam), Barrett Martin (Screaming Trees) and John Baker, you’re not just any band.
Formed by McCready and Baker who met in a rehab clinic in 1994, Martin and Staley rounded out this four-piece that played just six proper concerts in less than a year. Years later, Baker and Staley each succumbed to their addictions, leaving McCready and Martin as the only surviving members.
Here’s a look at some interesting statistics from their live history:
Soundcheck: Long Gone Day, I Don’t Know Anything

Setlisting is growing with new concerts being added every day! Fans - aka Setlisters - have been adding setlists for artists on tour like Soundgarden, Eddie Vedder and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs among others. And we’re eagerly looking forward to setlists for upcoming tours by The Lumineers and Frightened Rabbit.
But we need you more than ever to build up Setlisting’s collection of great setlists from the past. We need Setlisters!
How can you tell you’re a Setlister?
If you’re reading this, you probably qualify!
We’re calling all Setlisters to help build Setlisting’s collection of artist setlists. Some new artists only have around a hundred setlists, established artists may have close to a thousand - check out Pearl Jam, they have 872 … and counting!
Wow, this seems like a lot of work! Well, yeah, but it’s fun! Share with your friends and the number of setlists will build up quickly.
All you need to get started is:
Setlists are easy to find on the web. You can search for photos of setlists, live concert reviews, fan accounts or even your own notes. If you have the concert info, but not the songs performed, it’s OK, add it anyway. Maybe someone else has the setlist.
The benefits will be huge! Aside from tracking the concerts you attended by clicking “I WENT”, you’ll help make the artist and song statistics more accurate, including our latest feature which shows the “first time played” and “last time played” for a song - check out Pearl Jam’s “Even Flow”.
We’re also busy working on new features and more comprehensive statistics, so stay tuned!
Let’s get started … Setlisters unite!
When disaster strikes, people rise up to help those in need. To benefit those in the Northeast United States effected by Hurricane Sandy, the music world certainly rose up at Madison Square Garden on December 12th for “12/12/12: The Concert for Sandy Relief”.
The concert featured amazing collaborations and some of music’s biggest stars - not just in recent years, but all time. Watched by over 2 billion people, you may have enjoyed the performances but we’ll help you keep track of all the songs performed. Were you lucky enough to be there?

Remember the band you put together and within a year-and-a-half was opening for Neil Young? Right, it didn’t happen to you. But it did happen to Everest.
Since 2007, Everest has gone from playing regular gigs in the southern California club scene, to touring with Neil Young, to filling theaters across the United States. This November, Everest returns for another opening slot on a tour with Neil Young and Crazy Horse (with Patti Smith as well) on mostly Northeast arena dates, in support of their third album, Ownerless.
Everest has taken a unique approach to building their fanbase by establishing residencies. A residency - where an artist will play multiple or regular shows in one venue or city - is nothing new; however, Everest established a series of residencies in the past year: Southern California, New York, Washington D.C. and Chicago.
[ See Everest’s setlist history HERE ]
We asked guitarist Joel Graves about how Everest showcases their craft through setlists.
How do you create the setlist for Everest? Do you work off a master song list?
Joel: At this point, we have three albums to draw from so I think the master list is more in our minds than on paper (but that may be coming at some point soon). We tend to read the vibe and the situation of the night. Whoever in the band has a strong idea for that night’s setlist is welcome to take the lead. On tour, especially when we’re opening and have less time to stretch out musically, we tend to find a good flowing set and stick with it. We swap out songs here and there to improve the set and to keep it interesting for ourselves.
How does Everest prepare for playing on tour and how do pre-tour rehearsals compare to rehearsals and soundchecks as the tour moves on?
Joel: We generally get together and do a few long all-day type of practices before we leave for tour. Since the new record release, we’ve been playing so much that when we do get some time at home, we take the opportunity to enjoy some time off. Fortunately, everyone in the band cares about their individual craft so much that there’s not a whole lot of work necessary to get the ol’ engine primed.
As your catalog gets bigger over time, how do you balance performing songs that are new vs. old, popular vs. b-side?
Joel: Having just released our new album Ownerless, we definitely have been focused on playing more songs from that LP lately. The album sequence itself is one of our favorite set lists. Plus, the new songs (for obvious reasons) relate more to our current head space and band chemistry. There are a handful of songs from our previous records that we still love playing every night, so those often make the list as well. Certain songs beg to be played due to the circumstances of a given night. We try to satisfy our own expectations first, but if we know that a song has a particular meaning to a certain location or audience member, we’re open to that. If we get a really persistent request to play something we haven’t played in a while (sometimes years!), we’ll do our best to accommodate if we think we can pull it off without butchering the song.
Is there a memorable concert by another artist that you can say “I WENT!” or one that you wish you had been to?
Joel: After seeing so many of hundreds of concerts in my life, it’s honestly hard to pin down one moment or night. Most of the shows I wished I could have seen are from artists that are no longer with us. Having spent so much time with Neil Young over the last several years, I’d say the biggest impression I’ve been left with is how incredibly dedicated he is to preparing and pouring his energy into each and every show. We’ve learned so much from his work ethic and artistic ethos.
What can fans expect on your current/upcoming tour?
“Whoever in the band has a strong idea for that night’s setlist is welcome to take the lead.” - Joel Graves, Everest
After almost 22 years of recording and touring, Pearl Jam is still ticking. In fact, they’re ticking pretty hard with their recent festival headlining appearances and a sold out show this past Sunday night at the Adams Events Center in Missoula, MT.
On Setlisting, Pearl Jam is the first major Artist with a complete concert history. As accurately as they could, Pearl Jam fans have entered in over 850 setlists from their first shows in 1990 (then named “Mookie Blaylock”) to the present.
[ See Pearl Jam’s 850+ concert history HERE ]
From Seattle to New York, Europe to Australia, here’s a sample of some of Pearl Jam’s most famous setlists.
October 22, 1990 - Off Ramp Cafe, Seattle WA
Where it all began. Their first show, including many songs that would eventually make their debut album Ten [ setlist ]
December 31, 1991 - Cow Palace, Sacramento, CA
New Year’s Eve set where they opened for two bands you may have heard of: Nirvana and Red Hot Chili Peppers. What a night! [ setlist ]
June 25, 1992 - Moderna Museet, Stockholm, SE
One of the early Eddie Vedder pre-sets, almost their full catalog of Ten, plus a crazy array of b-sides, tags and covers [ setlist ]
November 30, 1993 - Aladdin Theater, Las Vegas, NV
You’d think fans rubbed a magic lamp and the Pearl Jam genie granted them an incredible setlist. Many Beatles tags, a Green River reunion and Ed closing the show alongside an Elvis impersonator. Enough said. [ setlist ]
April 3, 1994 - Fox Theater, Atlanta, GA
Broadcast via satellite around the world, this setlist might be their most widely circulated live recording. It’s where most fans learned to scream “Hello!” and includes a screaming, blistering “Porch”. [ setlist ]
July 11, 1995 - Soldier Field, Chicago, IL
In one of their earliest “never-ending setlists”, this 29-song monster in blistering heat set the stage for their main-set + multi-encore format. Fun fact: for this show, Pearl Jam used The Grateful Dead’s stage and alas were the last to play on it following Jerry Garcia’s death shortly afterwards. [ setlist ]
September 29, 1996 - Downing Stadium, New York, NY, USA
On the second of two nights in an old Randall’s Island stadium, Pearl Jam play their longest show to date, clocking in at nearly 3 hours. [ setlist ]
March 5, 1998 - Melbourne Park, Melbourne, Australia
Broadcast on Triple J Radio (Australia), this show featured a great showcase of songs of 1998’s Yield. Sadly, one of the last shows with Drummer Jack Irons, who left the band within a month. [ setlist ]
November 6, 2000 - Key Arena, Seattle, WA
After the tragic deaths of fans earlier in the tour in Roskilde, DK, Pearl Jam conclude this emotional tour in their hometown of Seattle with Wellwater Conspiracy (Matt Cameron) and Red Hot Chili Peppers. “Alive” returns for the first time since before the Roskilde show. [ setlist ]
October 22, 2001 - Key Arena, Seattle, WA
On the band’s 12th Birthday, they co-headline a benefit for Groundworks with R.E.M. A short but charged set, opening with John Lennon’s “Gimme Some Truth”. [ setlist ]
(setlist courtesy of Rich Wilson)
May 3, 2003 - University Park, PA
Continuing the theme of long shows, Eddie actually established this goal during an encore break, “If you guys wanna stick around, we’re willing to make this the longest Pearl Jam show that ever has been played”. Setlist for the second encore (see below) features a big “GO HOME” after the last song. [ setlist ]

September 24 - Mile One Stadium, St. John’s, Newfoundland, CAN
After a month touring Canada west to east, Pearl Jam start a two-night stand in Newfoundland with a 29-song barrage, complete with encores full of The Who covers. [ setlist ]
July 13, 2006 - Santa Barbara Bowl, Santa Barbara, CA
This show is split into acoustic and electric halves, featuring “Oceans” and “Big Wave” in this California surfing haven. [ setlist ]
August 11, 2009 - Shephard’s Bush Empire, London, UK
Pearl Jam rewarded early buyers of Backspacer and Ten Club members by playing an intimate gig in this theater which holds less than 2000 fans. [ setlist ]
October 31, 2009 - Wachovia Spectrum, Philadelphia, PA
It must be super cool to play four nights at one venue, but then even cooler when you play the last four shows at a venue before it’s demolished. Pearl Jam had this honor, and played a 40-song whopper (on Halloween no less) filled with rarities (“Bugs”) and costumed covers (Devo’s “Whip It”) [ setlist ]
May 21, 2010 - Madison Square Garden, NY, NY
Highlights and history fill this show, from a unique folk-punk “Lukin” (accompanied by a String Quartet!) to a Temple of the Dog cover of “Hunger Strike” with Band of Horses lead singer Ben Bridwell. [ setlist ]
June 27, 2012 - Ziggo Dome, Amsterdam, Netherlands
This show became an instant classic when a long-time fan was given the chance to create a setlist for Pearl Jam to play. The rest is history. [ setlist ]

You’re at a concert, the house lights go down, and you hope over the next few hours that you’ll hear some of your favorite songs. You expect to hear the “hit songs”, but some songs are more personal to you. This may be the first time you’ve seen this artist, or the last time you’re going to for awhile, and you absolutely need to hear that one song that means the most to you.
You want to get the attention of the singer, but how? It’s loud, deafeningly loud. The guitars and drums are blaring. You can’t scream, the singer won’t hear you. What’s a fan to do? That’s right … hold up a hand-made Sharpie-penned poster board sign with your personal song request.
The question then beckons: whose setlist is it anyway? Should an artist play what they want to play, or should the fans have some say in the matter. In this installment of the Setlisting Blog, we take a look at some popular artists and how they’ve handled sign requests.
Bruce Springsteen: It’s Hard to be a Sign in the City
Bruce Springsteen, whose setlists routinely contain 25-35 songs, has been taking sign requests recently. On any given night this tour, up to five songs in the middle of the set are played by request from signs. From “Open All Night” to “I’m on Fire”, the requests vary from the obscure to the familiar, but most certainly special to the sign holder.

Pearl Jam Fans: Hold Your “Breath”
In September 1998, Pearl Jam played four shows of their tour in the New York area in support of their fourth album Yield.
At the first show - September 8 in East Rutherford, NJ - Pearl Jam came back on stage after their main set to hundreds of fans holding signs for the song “Breath”, a beloved fan favorite popular in Pearl Jam’s early years but shelved in recent years.
While not physically big sign, hundreds of copies were distributed to the front rows. Well-crafted small print at the bottom included a description of the sign, a brief history of the “Breath” and when it was last played, and specific instructions: “Please hold up this sign when the band returns for the first encore.”

Singer Eddie Vedder told the crowd “That’s pretty impressive, but it’s not gonna do you a damn bit of good.” “Breath” = not played that night.
Days later at Madison Square Garden, the signs - along with most of the same fans - appeared, with Ed quipping “besides New Jersey, I’ve never seen such organization from a crowd.” As for the setlist, still no “Breath”; but the fans weren’t about to let up at this point.
Finally, on Sept. 11, Pearl Jam relented, with Vedder opining on the fan / artist relationship at a concert.
Eddie Vedder: (mock rant) You know, we come up here as a collective band and we give and we give and you just want more … and you know what? You deserve it. (massive applause) This is like some kind of organized religion here; I’ve never seen anything like it. Do you see what’s happening? The third night in a row, right? Well, we’re gonna play it!”
To top it off, fans saluted Pearl Jam at the next concert in Hartford, CT, holding up a sea of signs that said “THANK YOU”, leading to the second playing of “Breath” in as many days.
Some fans are persistent, even when the artist isn’t known for taking requests. Phish, on the first leg of their energetic-to-the-point-of-giddy 2012 Summer Tour, were noticing more and more signs at their shows. While they have taken a request from time to time, it’s not something they’re known for.
However, at their June 29 stop in Noblesville, IN, singer/guitarist Trey Anastasio gave in to a sign request following a cover of Velvet Underground’s “Sweet Jane” and prior to “Limb By Limb”, from 1998’s Story of the Ghost. Trey and Keyboardist Page McConnell took to the mic. Awesomeness ensued.
Trey Anastasio: Ok, I swore I’d never do this again, but this is too good, I’m gonna grab this sign (grabs “Limb By Limb” sign from a fan, crowd cheers). Don’t let it encourage you to bring more signs, please! By the way, for the record, we see the signs the first second you hold them up. So once you hold them up once, put them down, thank you!
Page McConnell: There’s some folks behind you who want to see, too, I’m sure (crowd cheers). So anybody holding signs, we see them, thank you! To all those people behind the sign holders, (“Limb by Limb” is) for you. (Big cheers)
Trey: Page has been wanting to say that for a about a year now…
So who calls the shots at concerts - the artists or the paying customers?
Do sign requests turn an artist’s setlist into a custom playlist?
