2005-09-30 Atlantic City, NJ

Ed came on for a song at 7:45pm with his acoustic (plus capo), "appropriately" a cover of Bruce Springsteen's "No Surrender" from Born In The USA (Sleater-Kinney even covered Bruce's "Promised Land" during their set). Pearl Jam came on about 9:05pm. Being general admission in front of the stage, Ed addressed the crowd early on. A fan had actually crowd-surfed during a song and Ed remarked "none of this crowd-surfing shit", saying that they need to be careful, and that they were unfortunately being chastised for something that was allowed "back in '92". He continued with a plea to be aware, keep an eye on your neighbor and to be careful. "Raise your hand if you need to get out" he remarked to those who may have found the crowded front tough to manage and "those big guys in front will help you". He mentioned how "those same big guys" would throw out any more crowdsurfers (amazingly there were 2-3 surfers as the show went on, each appearing to get thrown out).
