Pearl Jam tour finale tonight at KeyArena

Pearl JamSeattle-based Pearl Jam — one of the most influential rock bands of the 1990s — has been outdoing itself on a two-leg, 24-date fall tour in support of its current album, “Lightning Bolt.” The marathon show includes more than 30 songs, among them “Pendulum,” “Leaving Here,” “Do the Evolution,” “Black,” “Alive” and “Rearviewmirror.” The concert features two lengthy encores and such showstoppers as The Who’s “Baba O’Riley,” Neil Young’s “Rockin’ in the Free World” and guitarist Mike McCready’s incendiary, Jimi Hendrix-inspired version of “The Star Spangled Banner.”

More than a half dozen songs from “Lightning Bolt” are included, among them “Sleeping by Myself,” originally recorded for Eddie Vedder’s 2011 solo album, “Ukulele Songs.” The five-member band featuring McCready, Vedder (pictured), Jeff Ament, Stone Gossard and Matt Cameron (who divides his time between Pearl Jam and Soundgarden) is finishing up the tour in Seattle, which could mean that fans are in for an especially long and vigorous performance.

7:30 p.m. Friday at KeyArena, Seattle Center; $65.50 (800-745-3000 or ticketmaster.com).
