Pearl Jam announce two UK dates (2014)
Story by Jack Foley
PEARL Jam are to embark on an 11-date European tour in June and July of 2014.
The band’s summer tour kicks off on June 16 in Amsterdam, includes two festival headlining slots (Open’er Festival on July 3 and Rock Werchter Festival on July 5), and wraps up with two dates in the UK, at Leeds Arena on July 8 and at the Milton Keynes Bowl on July 11.
Written by the band and produced by Brendan O’Brien, Pearl Jam released their much-anticipated 10th studio album Lightning Bolt in October. It is their first studio album in four years, and their tenth to date.
It debuted at number 2 in the UK charts, their highest chart position since Vs while also debuting at number 1 on ITunes in over 50 countries and became their 5th number 1 album in their native US.
