Pearl Jam kicked off their Dark Matter world tour on May 4 in Vancouver, and the concert is surely one Mike McCready won't soon forget. The band played a 25-song set at Rogers Arena, which included nine off the newly released album along with fan-favorites, rarities (like the first performance of "Leatherman" since 2016), and hits. Pearl Jam ended their initial set with "Porch" and McCready was so in the zone during his iconic guitar solo that he fell off the stage, and still somehow didn't miss a note! Crew swiftly helped him back up, and he continued playing, completely unfazed.

Watch fan-shot footage of the incident below (it happens around the 3:22 mark) and see Pearl Jam's full setlist below.
