Pearl Jam announce North American tour

Pearl Jam have announced dates for a North American tour.

The band will play 22 shows in 18 cities this spring and summer, with dates starting April 8 in Fort Lauderdale, FL.

The run includes appearances at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival in April and Bonnaroo in June and pairs of stadium shows at Boston’s Fenway Park and Chicago’s Wrigley Field in August.

Tickets for most shows will go on sale January 29 at noon local time; the New Orleans event is already on sale, and details for the stadium dates will announced in the coming weeks.

The lineup for Bonnaroo will be announced tonight on TBS’ late night show Conan.

The 2016 tour coincides with the 25th anniversary of Pearl Jam’s 1991 debut “Ten.”

Asked last month if the group had any plans to mark the occasion, manager Kelly Curtis confirmed “Yes, can't say anything yet.”

Pearl Jam have spent the last two years on the road in support of 2013’s “Lightning Bolt.”
