Pearl Jam 2016 logoFinally, the news Pearl Jam fans have been waiting for. After posting a not-so-mysterious teaser video on Facebook yesterday hinting at a special announcement, PJ revealed today that they will kick off a North American tour this spring and summer.

Highlights include a multi-night stint at Madison Square Garden, festival appearances at Bonnaroo and New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Fest, and stadium shows at Fenway Park in Boston and Wrigley Field in Chicago. Tickets go on sale January 29th with the exception of Boston and Chicago dates, which will go on sale at a later time, still to be announced.

It’s been three years now since Pearl Jam released their last album, Lightning Bolt, but they’ve been touring quite regularly in the interim. Last November, they wrapped up a Latin American tour, traveling from Colombia and Brazil to Argentina and Chile, but the band hasn’t played in the United States since 2014.

Pearl Jam’s forthcoming tour kicks off April 9th in Miami and runs through August 22nd in Chicago. Three dollars from every ticket sold will go toward Vitalogy Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to community health, arts, education, the environment and social justice. Tickets for New Orleans Jazz Fest on April 23rd are on sale now. The full Bonnaroo line-up drops tonight, and tickets will go on sale January 22nd at noon ET.

Pearl Jam is one of many classic acts to release new tour information this week. Just today, Sting and Peter Gabriel announced a joint North American tour this June and July. (Click here for complete itinerary info.)  Not long after news of their Coachella reunion, Guns N’ Roses have added two more performance dates in advance of the fest.  Meanwhile, Billy Joel will be playing a batch of Major League Baseball stadiums this summer.

Tickets are available here.
