Two years after putting their tour in support of LP gigaton on hold due to the pandemic, Pearl Jam is set to hit the road for a North American tour starting May 3. The Eddie Vedder-led band will make 19 stops across Canada and the United States, including two shows at Forum One in New York’s Madison Square Garden.
Josh Klinghoffer – the former guitarist of the Red Hot Chilli Peppers – is set to open for Pearl Jam with his solo project Pluralone. He will also join Pearl Jam as a touring member alongside Vedder, Stone Gossard, Jeff Ament, Mike McCready and Matt Cameron.
The tour will feature efforts to reduce Pearl Jam’s carbon footprint by paying $200 per ton for carbon dioxide mitigation – a 10-fold increase in the band’s efforts over the past few years. The band has made a conscious effort on their past tours to minimize their impact on the environment and global warming.
“We are proud of our past efforts to mitigate our unavoidable carbon footprint from touring over the past 20 years, but the time to multiply that effort is clearly right now,” Gossard said in a statement. “By committing to this aggressive pricing, we hope to also amplify our efforts and bring together partners who share our urgency to make the investments and innovations needed to move our world towards a more carbon-conscious and balanced economy.”
Tickets for the tour go on sale Monday.
Pearl Jam’s most recent album featured songs such as “Dance of the Clairvoyants”, “Superblood Wolfmoon” and Retrograde”. The band last toured in 2018 with several stops at baseball stadiums. In addition to their dates in North America in May and the fall, the group is also heading to Europe this summer.
