New Music Friday
Here are our highlights from today's release schedule.
Seattle rockers Pearl Jam have confirmed two shows at London’s The O2 on 18 and 19 June 2018 as part of a run of fourteen gigs across Europe during the summer. The tour includes the band’s first performance in Rome since 1996 and first ever shows in Padova (Italy) and Krakow (Poland).
Having toured for over 25 years, Pearl Jam are a pillar of the US rock scene and have filled stadiums time and time again. With ten albums under their belt, the band’s live shows are filled with high energy and leave nothing to be desired.
In celebration of Pearl Jam’s legendary, sold out performances at Wrigley Field during the Chicago Cubs historic World Series championship season, Pearl Jam recently released their documentary film Let’s Play Two and accompanying soundtrack album.
Just earlier this year Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder embarked on a solo UK tour in support of his latest and second solo album Ukulele Songs, the follow up to 2007’s Into The Wild. The tour saw Vedder play London’s Hammersmith Apollo with special guest Glen Hansard.
Also in 2017, Pearl Jam were introduced into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame where they performed legendary hits Alive, Given To Fly and Better Man. Canadian songwriter icon Neil Young was originally set to introduce the band but had to bow out due to illness. He was later replaced with legendary television host David Letterman.
Here are those Pearl Jam dates:
18 June 2018 – The O2, London
19 June 2018 – The O2, London
