5/3/03 – State College, Pennsylvania is a three-disc live album by the American alternative rock band Pearl Jam. It was released to retail stores on July 15, 2003.

Overview[edit]

The album was recorded live in University Park, Pennsylvania at the Bryce Jordan Center at Penn State University on May 3, 2003. Since this was the last show of the tour's first leg, the band decided to make it, in the words of vocalist Eddie Vedder, "the longest Pearl Jam show ever played." This has since been surpassed by the show at the Tweeter Center in Mansfield, Massachusetts on July 11, 2003.

It is the only official bootleg that Pearl Jam released in stores from the first 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 Jason Birchmeier said, "It's a fittingly spirited finale to a spirited trek across America during a spirited time by a spirited band led by an especially spirited frontman."[1] It debuted at number 169 on the Billboard 200 album chart.
