Pearl Jam Announce 2013 Fall North American Tour Dates
The countdown clock on Pearl Jam's official website ticked down to zero today, unlocking news of a fall 2013 North American tour. They are headed to the Lone Star State, but if you want to see them, you'll have to head to the big 'D.'
Pearl Jam are scheduled to play 24 dates on the just-annouced tour, starting Oct. 11 in Pittsburgh and ending Dec. 6 in their hometown of Seattle. The trek will be split into two legs, with the veteran rockers taking a two-week break following their previously announced headline appearance at the Voodoo Music + Arts Experience. Tickets are currently on sale for the Voodoo festival, which takes place in New Orleans on Nov. 1-3, but the exact date of PJ's Voodoo set has yet to be confirmed.
Tickets for the new dates go on sale to the general public on July 27, with exact times and locations being announced per market. Current members of the Pearl Jam Ten Club can enter a pre-sale ticket drawing as of today.
Meanwhile, a second countdown has started ticking on the band's site, perhaps suggesting that information on a new album will be released may be released shortly.
