2005-08-29 Missoula, MT

This show was a political fundraiser for Montana politician Jon Tester's U.S. Senate Election Bid. Jeff Ament takes the stage first and thanks many people but "mostly, I want to thank the band - I want to thank Ed, Stone, Matt and Mike for coming over." Continuing he introduces the "next senator of Montana", Jon Tester. Jon Tester briefly and enthusiastically introduces Pearl Jam, alluding to his experience with fellow Montanan Jeff Ament, "this is what happens when a dirt farmer from Big Sandy runs for the U.S Senate teamed up with a bass player from Big Sandy and a world-class band. We're just a couple of Montana boys trying to have a good time."
