Pearl Jam To Play Two Shows In London’s Hyde Park In 2021
Seattle arena-rock titans Pearl Jam have announced two massive headline shows in London’s Hyde Park for British Summer Time festival next year.
Following the cancellation of this year’s BST festival, where Pearl Jam were scheduled to play this July for their biggest-ever London show, the band are returning for two huge shows in 2021 to make up for it.

Festival promoter Jim King, says, “We couldn’t be happier to be back and we can’t wait to bring everyone together with BST Hyde Park 2021, for what could be the most memorable British Summer Time ever… Pearl Jam jumped at the chance to celebrate after having to cancel their show this year and we are honoured that they agreed to play two consecutive nights, a first for BST. As their fans know, they are the perfect artists for such an unprecedented double bill.”
Tickets go on sale at 10am (UK time) on October 10. Fans who bought tickets to this summer’s Pearl Jam BST show will have priority access to rebook and experience both shows with a two-day ticket. Knowing Pearl Jam, you definitely won’t be getting the same show twice.
Earlier this year, Pearl Jam released their 5K-rated 11th studio album Gigaton, but were forced to reschedule touring plans due to the pandemic. In July they revealed details of their European touring plans for 2021, kicking off in Amsterdam on June 16 and climaxing at the O2 Arena in Prague on July 25.
