I almost turned this into a 12 Inch Poll, but I want to keep it a bit more open-ended.


SPIN recently dusted off their 2001 piece entitled ‘10 Tours That Changed The World‘ and it got me thinking: what’s a tour that, when it rolled into town and you went to the show, changed everything for you?


For me, it was Pearl Jam‘s Vs. Tour. Seeing them at Boston Garden in April of 1994 was my first real rock show. It was also a show that went down in Pearl Jam and Rock ‘N’ Roll history: just days after the suicide of Kurt Cobain, Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder used the base of his mic stand express his grief, smashing a hole in the Garden stage and crawling down into it after the band’s performance of Neil Young’s “Rockin’ In The Free World.” My 17-year-old mind was blown and I was a lifelong Pearl Jam fan from that moment on.
