Seattle’s own Pearl Jam will rock the stage on the opening night of the much-anticipated three-day concert festival.

The main support for the Friday will be announced at a later date, as well as additional big-name acts and a full supporting line-up for the rest of the weekend.

Following the success of this year’s concert festival, Hard Rock Calling 2010 will once again be staged over three consecutive nights, starting on Friday, June 25, and will feature the very best and hottest artists touring the world.

Pearl Jam recently toured North America, Australia and New Zealand in support of their ninth studio album, Backspacer. Released on September 20, the album debuted at No.1 on the Billboard music chart.

“We are thrilled to add Pearl Jam to our Ambassadors of Rock Tour lineup and continue Hard Rock’s tradition of top acts rocking Hyde Park,” said Hamish Dodds, president and CEO, Hard Rock International.

“For nearly two decades, not only has Pearl Jam been one of the world’s top bands, but they have also actively shown their support for several philanthropic causes.”

Earlier this year, the sold-out Hard Rock Calling festival featured stellar performances by headliners Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band, Neil Young and The Killers, supported by more than a dozen top acts, such as Dave Mathews Band, The Pretenders, The Gaslight Anthem and more.
