January 13, 2020 | By Nathan Scott
It’s been a minute since Pearl Jam has made the rounds, and we knew about the European tour; now the cats out of the bag. Their fans have been waiting since 2013 for new music, and it’s time! With a new album in the horizon, Gigation (Monkeywrench Records) is their 11th studio album and it’s scheduled to drop March 27, 2020. Everyone can just breathe with the announcement of their North American Tour.
In anticipation of the new tunes, fans are ready for Eddie Vedder (lead vocals | rhythm guitar), Mike McCready (lead guitar | backing vocals), Stone Gossard (rhythm and lead guitar – backin vocals), Jeff Ament (bass) and Matt Cameron (drums) to take the stage. There’s already buzz over the first two singles, Can’t Deny Me, and Dance of the Clairvoyants.

Earlier today, guitarist Mike McCready said: “Making this record was a long journey. It was emotionally dark and confusing at times, but also an exciting and experimental road map to musical redemption. Collaborating with my bandmates on ‘Gigaton’ ultimately gave me greater love, awareness and knowledge of the need for human connection in these times.”
The tour kicks off March 13 at Toronto’s Scotiabank Aren and then they’ll be hitting great venues throughout the US. As part of the tour, they’ll be visiting the southland with stops at Viejas Arena in San Diego on April 13th; then, they head North to The Forum for two dates on April 15th and 16th before heading up to Oakland to complete the tour.
