Pearl Jam books Canadian date

- January 23rd, 2013

Pearl Jam have booked two early dates in the 2013 calendar, and it includes one stop north of the border.

The Seattle rockers are playing London, Ontario’s Budweiser Gardens on July 16, as well as Chicago’s Wrigley Field on July 19. Both gigs are billed as “An Evening With Pearl Jam,” meaning you will probably have full PJ for 3 plus hours, with no opening act.

Tickets for both shows go on sale on February 9.

The band, via its official website, promises an announcement in the coming months of more North American dates in the fall, which goes in line with a likely summer/fall drop date for their brand new album.

Pearl Jam sent out a few teaser tweets preceding the Chicago date announcement, that included a photo of a stage set up on what appears to be Wrigley Field with the two-word post “Looking good!” and the hashtag #StayTuned. It will mark the first time they’ve played the historic ballpark.
