Pearl Jam performed their only two concerts of the summer last week. The first show was in London, Ontario and acted as a warm-up to the band’s big show at Wrigley Field.

As previously reported, the band gave “Mind Your Manners,” the lead single off their upcoming record Lightning Bolt, its live debut in London. During the Wrigley show, which featured a two-hour rain delay, the band broke out more material from Lightning Bolt, playing two more songs off the album and giving fans a taste of what they can expect when the record is released in October.

Take a listen to the album’s titled track, “Lightning Bolt,” a mid-tempo number that gets a lift from some crafty guitar work by Mike McCready near its end, and “Future Days,” a slower, more relaxed tune, below.
