Pearl Jam Announce European Tour

Pearl Jam are heading back to the UK and Europe this summer

Seattle legends Pearl Jam have announced details of a European tour for next summer.

As well as headlining next year’s British Summer Time event in London, UK, Pearl Jam will be topping the bill in arenas and festivals across Europe throughout June and July.

Kicking off in Frankfurt, Germany, on June 23, the trek will end on July 22 in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

Throughout the tour, Pearl Jam will be supported by a number of different artists including Pixies, IDLES and White Reaper. Check the dates below to see who is supporting where.

To get in the festive spirit, PJ have also launched 12 Days Of Pearl Jam today, which sees them share twelve of their holiday singles for the first time on streaming services. They’re kicking off with Let Me Sleep (It’s Christmas Time).

Pearl Jam’s return to the UK and Europe follows their two incredible, sold-out headline gigs at The O2 in London in June and July last year. It’s not yet known if the rock legends will also be bringing any new material with them next summer, with various members of the band updating fans and the press that they have been writing for the follow-up to 2013’s Lightning Bolt.

“Hopefully we’re going to get that thing done soon,” said guitarist Mike McCready. “It’s been a bit, it’s been a little while… It’s the longest I think we’ve had between records. We’ve got a bunch of songs ready to go… Hopefully it will be out, I don’t have a date on anything yet, though.”

Guitarist Stone Gossard and bassist Jeff Ament also said back in January that they were “in the middle” of writing album number 11. Fingers crossed that means we’ll hear the results soon…

Tickets for Pearl Jam’s UK show go on sale December 6 from Ticketmaster.
