The recently announced string of shows will feature songs from their ninth studio album Backspacer. Veteran guitarist Mike McCready is thrilled to display their updated style, describing the music as a “tight, concise, rock ‘n’ roll record with kind of pop or maybe new wave elements to it.”
Pearl Jam will make their decade debut at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival Saturday, May 1st. The XL Center in Hartford, CT will play host to the group May 15th before they travel to Boston’s TD Garden on the 17th. Pearl Jam members are recognized as some of the most influential rockers of the 1990′s. Through the past 20 years they have sold a total of 30 million records in the U.S. and sixty million worldwide.

Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder is on tour in support of his first solo album, the soundtrack for the film Into The Wild. Vedder launched the tour in April to positive reviews from fans and critics alike.
“This will be an amazing opportunity for fans to see Eddie Vedder in such intimate settings” said RCA Music Group VP Matt Shay at a recent press conference.
Fans should expect plenty of songs from the Grammy-nominated Into The Wild, some Pearl Jam favorites (“I Am Mine” has been played at most of the shows), and a wide range of covers (songs by Daniel Johnston, James Taylor, Tom Petty, Bob Dylam, and Tom Waits were played at the first show on the tour. Much like Pearl Jam shows; Marathon set-times, double encores, and audience interaction are all the norm. Wild standouts standouts “No More”, “Hard Sun”, and “Guaranteed” are featured prominently in the sets.
After the month-long jaunt, Vedder will join up with the rest of Pearl Jam to resume work on their next as-yet untitled ninth album.
Liam Finn (son of Crowded House frontman Neil Finn) will be opening for Vedder on all the dates of the tour.
