Pearl Jam and Tom Petty have extended their run of co-headlining shows with a June 29-30 stand at Milwaukee's Marcus Amphitheatre as part of Summerfest. A special presale is underway now for members of Pearl Jam's Ten Club fan organization.
Both bands are expected to play full sets as part of the bill, which will also visit St. Paul, Minn., on June 26-27 and Denver on July 2-3. As previously reported, Pearl Jam's summer tour begins May 9 in Toronto.
"It's in the middle of the whole tour, so we'll get to go out and change it up a little bit," Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament tells Billboard.com of the Petty dates. "We love Tom and his band. It will be a cool, special show for people."
As for Petty, the only other dates on his summer schedule at deadline are a June 10 show in Bristow, Va., with Trey Anastasio and a June 16 appearance at Bonnaroo in Manchester, Tenn.
Petty's manager previously told Billboard.com the artist would be playing shows this summer with John Mayer and the Strokes, but those have yet to be announced.
