Live on Ten Legs is a live album by American alternative rock band Pearl Jam released on 17 January 2011.[7] The album is composed of songs recorded during the band's 2003–2010 world tours,[8] and is a companion piece to their 1998 live album, Live on Two Legs. All songs on the album have been remixed by longtime Pearl Jam engineer, Brett Eliason.[9]
