Pearl Jam Play "Strangest Tribe" For the First Time Ever
Pearl Jam got in the Christmas spirit during their recent show in Norway as the band debuted “Strangest Tribe,” a track originally released in 1999 as the band’s Christmas single. The tune would ultimately appear on the 2003 Lost Dogs compilation but never found a place in the band’s setlists.
Other highlights from the show included five other cuts from the B-side collection, including “Down,” “Footsteps,” “Hard to Imagine,” “Sad” and the closing “Yellow Ledbetter.” During the first encore, the band also dug into a rare cover of The Rolling Stones’ “Waiting on a Friend,” their first since July, 13, 2006.
Additional notes from the show included a version of “Love Boat Captain” dedicated to the nine people who died during the band’s performance at Roskilde Festival in 2000. The band also took time to offer tour debuts of “Garden,” “Satan’s Bed” and “Leash.”
