Pearl Jam Announces Fall US Tour

  |   Comments

Most bands announce their new record before they announce their tour dates but most bands aren't Pearl Jam. There have been rumblings about the as-yet announced 10th studio record from the Seattle quintet but they announced today plans for a fall tour that kicks off in Pittsburgh and ends with a homecoming show in Seattle.

I wasn't bowled over by their ninth record Backspacer but I'm an unabashed PJ fan so I'll be among the first in line when the new record drops. Unfortunately, this will be the 10th album I won't see them tour in support of because the Southern dates are, shall we say, lacking on this leg. They hit North Carolina and Virginia and that's about it. I'll just have to stick with the bootlegs I've got and look forward to the new ones they're likely to release from this tour as they work their way around the country. I will see them one day. Oh, yes, I will one day see them.

For those of you who live north of the south, here are the tour dates. Stay tuned for that album announcement...
