Pearl Jam to tour North America


Pearl Jam have announced a 22-date North American tour.

They’ll kick off the run of dates in Fort Lauderdale on April 8 and wrap up the run of shows with two gigs at Wrigley Field, Chicago, on August 20 and 22.

The gigs have been set up to celebrate the band’s 25th anniversary – as confirmed by their manager Kelly Curtis last month during a live Twitter chat.

Curtis was asked if Eddie Vedder and co were planning to mark the 25th anniversary of 1991 debut Ten. Curtis replied: “Yes, can’t say anything yet.”

The band’s last release was 2013’s Lightning Bolt.
