PJ's 24-date, two-leg tour treks across North America from Oct. 11 through Dec. 6.
Pearl Jam will head out on a 24-date North American tour this fall that begins in October and runs through early December, the band announced today (July 8) as the culmination of the mysterious PearlJam.com countdown clock that's been running for the past week.
The group begins the two-part trek in Pittsburgh, Penn. on October 11 and will play arenas across the continent before wrapping up in their hometown of Seattle on December 6 (see below for a full list of the tour dates). Tickets for all of the concerts will go on sale to the public on July 27 at 10 a.m. local time. The PearlJam.com onsale for members of the group's fan club begins today.
The fall tour announcement comes as fans await news about Pearl Jam's next album, which guitarist Stone Gossard told Billboard in May was "almost done," adding that the band were "crossing our T's and dotting our I's." The upcoming 10th studio album, for which neither a title nor a release date has yet been announced, will be the follow up to 2009's "Backspacer," which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. After the tour was revealed today, the PearlJam.com coundown clock reset, showing a new countdown which is set to end on Thursdays, July 11 at noon P.T.
