Date: July 4, 1995
Venue: The Gorge Amphitheatre
Country: United States
This was the first 1995 Lollapalooza date! It was a pretty famous thing back then, and it was covered by MTV:
It was even reviewed in the NY Times (though they called Beck 'not particularly compelling' and moved on to other artists--most reviews focused on Sinead O'Connor and Courtney Love a bit).
Many of the artists had an early online blog and Beck wrote about this first show, calling it â€œa gradual frothing, monitored by securities and MTVs.â€"
As usual on Lollapalooza dates, Beck played a main set (below) on the Main Stage, but also would play acoustic-style sets on the Second Stage.
Second stage artists: Doo Rag, Possum Dixon, Poster Children, Yo La Tengo, Coolio and Blowhole.
The old beck.com setlist for this show had a bunch of 'unknown's listed; that's why there are holes below; there did used to be cassette bootlegs of this show, but not sure if it was ever digitalized. Email if you still have this!
