PEARL JAM is known for playing long shows and changing its set list completely from night to night. Guitarist Mike McCready told The Pulse Of Radio that the band feels lucky that its fans respond to songs from across the their entire catalog. "We're lucky in the sense that we can go out and play every night and play different stuff 'cause we have so much stuff to play, and people are receptive to it," he said. "There are fans that like — their favorite record is 'No Code' or their favorite record is 'Vs.' And we're lucky in a way that people want to hear new music from us — at least that's my perception."

PEARL JAM's last studio effort was 2013's "Lightning Bolt".
