Pearl Jam shares an unreleased video of Do The Evolution recorded during the infamous Give Way performance in Melbourne.
In celebration of the release of Give Way for Record Store Day 2023, Pearl Jam shared just for Ten Club members a never-before seen performance of Do The Evolution from PJ’s infamous Give Way performance in Melbourne Australia, on March 5th, 1998. If you are a 10C member, you can watch the video on the Inside section of the Video page on pearljam.com.
Give Way was to be a promotional live CD featuring 17 tracks from the Pearl Jam concert in Melbourne, Australia on March 5th, 1998.
Give Way will be released as a part of Record Store Day 2023 on double LP and on CD, a version of which was intended to be given away for free the day of the release of Single Video Theory to the first customers purchasing the video from Best Buy stores. The day before the release, the CDs were recalled and destroyed by Sony.
The title Give Way is a nod to the Australian counterpart to the Yield sign of the United States.
