Pearl Jam Announce South American + European 2018 Tour Dates
It's been a relatively quiet year for Pearl Jam, but the band will be getting back together in 2018. After a few weeks of speculation, Pearl Jam have confirmed their first touring of the year, playing four shows in South America in March, then heading to Europe in June and July.
The four-date South American run includes appearances at Lollapalooza festivals in Chile, Argentina and Brazil March 16, 18 and 24, with a non-festival date set for March 21 in Rio de Janiero, Brazil.
As for the European run, it starts June 12 in Amsterdam and continues through July 14 in Lisbon, Portugal. Along the way, the band will play their first show in Rome since 1996 and their first ever concerts in Padova, Italy and Krakow, Poland. The run also includes festival appearances in Pinkpop in Landgraaf, the I-Days festival in Milan, the Rock Werchter festival in Werchter, Belgium, the Mad Cool festival in Madrid and the NOS Alive Festival to close out the run in Lisbon.
A pre-sale is currently underway for members of the band's Ten Club.
As stated, it's been a pretty light year for Pearl Jam, with Eddie Vedder spending most of his time touring solo. Guitarist Mike McCready has gotten involved in film score work and other assorted projects. The group did release the Let's Play Two concert film and soundtrack taken from their Wrigley Field dates in 2016 earlier this fall.
