Pearl Jam postpone Gigaton European tour

Pearl Jam have postponed their upcoming European tour in support of “Gigaton” to next year “in light of the global COVID-19 pandemic.”

Set to begin in late June, the month-long trek was a mix of headline gigs and festival appearances that also included a single UK date at London’s Hyde Park in July as part of the annual British Summer Time series.

Advising fans that the dates have been postponed until June/July 2021, Pearl Jam says “we are working with all of our partners to reschedule these dates and will release the new tour routing as soon as we are able.

“All tickets will be honored for the rescheduled concert dates. Refunds are not being offered at this time. However, we are still reviewing specific ticketing policies with our partners in each country. Ticket holders will be notified of any changes.

“As previously announced, London's BST Hyde Park festival was cancelled on April 8th. For more information and the event statement:

“We look forward to returning to Europe in 2021!”

The Seattle outfit previously postponed a spring tour of North America, which was scheduled to open last month in Toronto, ON.

Pearl Jam’s first album in seven years, ”Gigaton” was produced by Josh Evans and the group; previewed with the lead single, “Dance Of The Clairvoyants”, the project recently debuted at No. 5 on the US Billboard 200.
