A lucky Pearl Jam fan was called upon to choose the setlist for the band's recent show in Amsterdam at the Ziggo Dome.

The show, which took place on June 27, saw Brian Farias of Rhode Island, who has seen the band play 108 times, pick the songs for the night.

"I thought I was hearing things when Eddie [Vedder] offered it to me," said Farias, who is a longstanding member of the band's fan club, the Ten Club, to Rolling Stone.

Farias made over 40 drafts before coming up with the final setlist, which comprised both fan favourites and rarities. Of compiling it he said: "It was really stressful, because it's something you know is never gonna happen again. You're only getting one shot at it."

Of the experience, he added: "It was like programming your iPod and then Pearl Jam show up in your yard and play it for you."

Pearl Jam played:

'Wash'
'Last Exit'
'Animal'
'State of Love and Trust'
'Severed Hand'
'Corduroy'
'I Got Shit'
'Daughter'/'WMA'
'Nothing As It Seems'
'Got Some'
'Dissident'
'Once'
'Glorified G'
'Deep'
'The Fixer'
'Bugs'
'Better Man'
'Release'
'Hail, Hail'
'Alone'
'Footsteps'
'Rearview Mirror'
'Crown of Thorns'
'Sonic Reducer'
'Alive'
'Baba O'Riley'
'Yellow Ledbetter'/'Little Wing'
