7/8/03 – New York, New York is a three-disc live album by the American alternative rock band Pearl Jam. It was released to retail stores on September 16, 2003.

Overview[edit]

The album was recorded live in New York City at Madison Square Garden on July 8, 2003. The album features an improv by lead guitarist Mike McCready within "Even Flow" that goes on for nearly five minutes. "Wishlist" contains a tag of the Buzzcocks song "Why Can't I Touch It?" Pearl Jam performed the Mother Love Bone song "Crown of Thorns" at the concert. Vocalist Eddie Vedder, in tribute to the late Mother Love Bone vocalist Andrew Wood, said, "I think Jeff and Stone will back me up on this, Andy would have loved it here."

It is one of three official bootlegs that Pearl Jam released in stores from the second leg of its North American Riot Act Tour, and it was one of six official bootlegs released overall to retail stores. Allmusic gave it three out of a possible five stars. Allmusic staff writer James Christopher Monger said that "the set loses momentum and things begin to fall apart."[1] It is also available packaged as a boxed set with the next night, 7/9/03, also at Madison Square Garden. The show is also available as the Live at the Garden DVD.
