Pearl Jam announces tour dates + release date for Backspacer

Today is a very good day for fans of Pearl Jam, celebrating an amazing two decades of music.  The long-awaited announcement of a release date for the new album, Backspacer (in stores September 20th), along with accompanying tour dates will bring a smile to the faithful.

The number of North American PJ concerts from August through October now stands at 15 for the moment.  While more dates are certain to be added later this year or early next year, many interesting options already abound. 

With three festival dates (Calgary’s Virgin Festival, San Francisco’s Outside Lands Music & Arts Festival, and the Austin City Limits Music Festival) to go along with single dates in Toronto and San Diego, and multiple dates in Chicago, Seattle, Los Angeles, and Philadelphia (helping to close out the historic run of the Spectrum before its pending demolition), there are ample opportunities for fans of the band to re-connect with the legendary live performers. 

And those of you who haven’t experienced a Pearl Jam concert recently (or ever) have every opportunity to venture out to discover what the fuss is all about.

Tickets for some of these shows are on sale, with the rest available no later than Saturday, July 18th.  Hope to see you there!
