Pearl Jam will celebrate the 20th anniversary of its debut album “Ten” with a celebratory festival and Canadian tour later this year.
The group will stage its aptly named “PJ20 Weekend” this Labor Day (September 3-4) at the Alpine Valley Music Theatre in East Troy, WI. In addition to Pearl Jam’s headline performances, the music festival will also feature daily sets by The Strokes, Queens of the Stone Age, Mudhoney, Liam Finn, and Glen Hansard, among others.
After the festival wraps, Pearl Jam will stay on the road for a 10-date tour across Canada. The trek begins September 7 at the Bell Centre in Montreal, QC, and ends September 25 at Pacific Coliseum in Vancouver, BC. Stops include September 11-12 at Air Canada Centre in Toronto, ON, and September 21 at Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary, AB.
Members of the Pearl Jam fan club will have a first go at PJ20 ticket packages in a presale starting May 23. The packages, which include a pair of weekend passes, will range from $252 for lawn tickets to $334 for reserved and general admission tickets. Details and restrictions regarding the fan club packages are available on PJ20.com.
The fan club presale will not include PJ20 single-day tickets, which will be available only through the general public onsale that opens June 4. Prices for individual, single-day tickets have not yet been announced.
Public ticket sales for the Canadian tour open May 27. According to Ticketmaster.com, ticket prices are CA$69.50 (before fees) for each night of the one-month outing.
While Pearl Jam sets its anniversary plans, frontman Eddie Vedder tours solo this summer to promote his latest album, “Ukulele Songs.” His 16-city, coast-to-coast venture kicks off June 15 in Providence, RI, and wraps July 15 in Seattle, WA.
