If you're disappointed that Pearl Jam haven't played a show in San Diego since 2013, this should make you feel 'better man': The 2017 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees have just announced a North American tour and they stop at San Diego State University's Viejas Arena on Monday, April 13!
Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, Jan. 24, at 10 a.m. PST. Visit this link for tickets; good luck!
In other big news, the multi-Grammy-winning band — comprised of guitarist Mike McCready, guitarist Stone Gossard, bassist Jeff Ament, drummer Matt Cameron, and vocalist (and onetime San Diegan) Eddie Vedder — has also confirmed the upcoming release of their 11th studio album titled "Gigaton," on March 27, their first since 2013's "Lightning Bolt."
Of course, Vedder (who just celebrated his 55th birthday in December) and his bandmates have kept busy over the last couple of years -- with notable headlines involving the release of "Let's Play Two," a concert film chronicling Pearl Jam's two-night Wrigley Field stand in 2016; Eddie's performance of Tom Petty's "Room at the Top" during the 90th annual Academy Awards; a limited-edition 7-inch vinyl single issued to a select few Chicago Cubs fans in 2018; and Vedder joining the Who onstage at their July 2019 Wembley Stadium gig to help sing "The Punk and the Godfather" (he also opened the show).
