Pearl Jam tour 2022 - 2023 announced: Pearl Jam has set new dates to replace their 2020 North American tour, which was canceled due to the pandemic. The new shows are booked from May 2022, with other dates to be specified early in the new year, the legendary rock band announced on social media. In a social post, Eddie Vedder and his fans thanked him for his "patience and flexibility" after the original tour was put on hold.
The 2020 tour was supposed to be a celebration of rock 'n' roll in support of the band's 11th studio album, Gigaton, which reached number five on the Billboard 200 in April of that year. The four-month tour was eventually postponed due to coronavirus problems. Hall of Famers is eager to get back on the road. "For almost two years, the band wanted nothing more than to play their new music live for you. The entire Pearl Jam team shares your excitement that we are all safely back on the road together." There is also good news for European PJ fans. The grunge icons had originally scheduled a tour in the summer of 2021, but those dates have also been shelved. The pan-European tour will therefore begin with two dates at the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam on June 14 and 15, 2022, and continue with a series of concerts on the continent and in the UK.
Eddie Vedder is the legendary frontman of the band. He joined the band in 1990. His first album, Ten (1991), was a huge hit, with songs like Alive and Jeremy, and the next two albums also went platinum. In addition to his many years with the band, the musician has appeared in several films, his work in 'Into the Wild' (2007) being his first solo album. In addition, Vedder is a well-known activist who has raised money for various causes, including the release of three West Memphis residents from prison, among others.
Initially, the band's name was different: Mookie Blaylock, after the legendary basketball player who inspired them. However, after signing a recording contract with Epic Records, the band's name was changed. Eddie Vedder has stated in interviews that the band's name, Pearl Jam, was inspired by his great-grandmother Pearl, who was known for her ability to make a delicious peyote candy. In reality, the name Pearl Jam was created by accident and chosen because of its sound. Unfortunately, the grandmother story is a red herring by the band.
The band became so popular that it even eclipsed Kurt Cobain. Cobain said that Pearl Jam had "sold out" and was corrupt. Cobain eventually met Eddie Vedder in person, and the two became great friends as a result. Pearl Jam 2022/2023 tickets.
