For decades, Pearl Jam has been known as one of the elite rock bands in the entire world, with a longstanding career that any in the industry would envy. A few weeks ago the rockers took to their website at PearlJam.com to reveal a countdown clock, and while there was no information about what it was that the mysterious clock was counting down for, fans of the band waiting in anticipation to see what it was that the countdown was actually counting down for. On July 8th, when the countdown reached ‘0’ fans were treated with some major news from the rockers; that they would be heading out on a brand new, long awaited tour to promote their latest work.
The band revealed to the public that they will be heading out on a 24-date, two-leg tour that will take them across North America. The tour is slated to kick off on October 11th in Pittsburgh, PA and it will culminate on December 6th in Seattle, Washington. Other big cities that the band will be visiting during the event include a two night stay in Brooklyn at the Barclays Center and stops in Philadelphia, Charlotte, San Diego, Los Angeles and Dallas. According to an announcement from the band, tickets for these events will go on sale to the public on July 27th at 10:00 a.m.
The tour will be featuring some of the band’s biggest hits over the last few decades as well as some of their newest recordings from their latest album, which according to the band is almost finished. This will be the group’s 10th studio album, and while they have yet to release a title or a date for the unveiling of the album, fans can expect to hear a preview of the record during the tour. This album will be the first album the band has released since their 2009 record Backspacer, a record that premiered on the top spot of the Billboard 200 charts.
