Pearl Jam Debut ‘Mind Your Manners’ Live in Ontario
From the first listen to Pearl Jam’s ‘Mind Your Manners’ it was clear that the song was tailor made for the stage. And now the band has officially added the track to its live repertoire, performing it during their set at London, Ontario’s Budweiser Gardens, the first of two North American stops this summer.
It didn’t take long for Pearl Jam to work the track in, as it followed ‘Present Tense,’ ‘Nothingman,’ ‘Elderly Woman Behind the Counter in a Small Town’ and a medley of The Clash‘s ‘London Calling’ with the band’s own ‘Corduroy.’ It’s safe to say that ‘Mind Your Manners’ packed a punch as the frenetic pacing had Eddie Vedder bounding around the stage. The song also provided a showcase midway through for Mike McCready’s guitar work before racing off to the feverish finish. Footage of the performance can be seen above.
‘Mind Your Manners’ is featured on Pearl Jam’s upcoming ‘Lightning Bolt’ album, which is expected to drop in stores Oct. 15. The band’s other North American tour stop this summer comes Friday night (July 19) at Chicago’s Wrigley Field, which no doubt will be a thrill for longtime Cubs fan Eddie Vedder.
Though Pearl Jam are offering this one-two punch of shows this week, they’re not expected back on tour in North America until October. However this time out, they will be playing an extended run that takes them well into December. To see the full list of Pearl Jam’s fall dates, click the button below.
